Our friends over at Bridge to Gantry spotted the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS testing on the Nürburgring. Based on the 991.2 generation, it appears to follow the same formula we know, love and fear: put a wicked fast turbocharged drivetrain into a GT3 RS body and chassis, and hope the owner doesn’t spin it into a wall.
With 612 horsepower and rear wheel drive, you think anyone lucky enough to own a Porsche GT2 RS would drive it every chance they had. This particular GT2 RS is collecting dust in a parking garage. Why?
When you spin out on one of the high speed sections of the Nordschleife, your chances for making it out unscathed are slim to none. Somehow, this GT2 RS driver did it, but he might need new underwear.
The music starts and the girls or guys are cheering. You swore you'd never get back in this again, but you know that maybe, just maybe, if you keep this up, you could afford a Porsche GT2 RS.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the fastest, most powerful road-going Porsche ever to slither out of Weissach on its belly. The Renault Megane RS is 250 horsepowers' worth of Volkswagen GTI bait. Here they are together on the Nürburgring. And, go.
The first near-crash for this 911 GT2 RS driver is the predictable response to underestimating how tough the Nürburgring is, especially in a super Porsche. The second near-crash comes after sitting there for a few seconds, probably trying to identify that soiled smell suddenly wafting through the cabin.
This is the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. It's a 620HP, Nurburgring-devouring beast. Seven minutes, eighteen seconds 'round the 'Ring to be precise. It's the fastest road-going Porsche ever and exactly what all those Cayennes have been paying for.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS s a stripped-down race version of the already powerful GT2. Loose-lipped VIPs claim the carbon fiber hood and gold-bedazzled wheeled car boasts 620 HP, a 3.2-second 0-to-60 MPH time, and a Nissan-besting Nürburgring lap time.
