2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS: This Is More Of The Most Powerful 911 Ever Made

All photos credit Porsche

Some very official-looking photos of Porsche’s most powerful 911 ever* have leaked onto the internet. If you can’t wait for the cover to be taken off of the “mystery car” at Goodwood, look here now. Here’s a better look at the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS—the terror-Porsche of all our hopes and dreams.

*Most powerful 911 ever according to the E3 reveal that Porsche won’t acknowledge.


Holy crap, this car looks like the business. There’s tons of carbon fiber everywhere in the cabin, a half-cage for additional stiffness and bright red accents everywhere, including on most of the wheel.


It appears as though the car will also come with a high-performance Weissach Package of some sort given the very obvious Weissach badging in some (but not all) of these photos. Weissach is the location of Porsche’s test track, and the Weissach Package was the fastest combination of additional go-fast goodies you could order on the Porsche 918. It’s fitting, given that allocations of this car are expected to go primarily to 918 owners.


If you’re a watch person, you’re in for a special treat. One of the leaked photos also showed off a matching watch, complete with matching red alcanatara wristband and a matching carbon fiber-accented face.


Personally, I’m more intrigued by that ESC + TC OFF button. It’s there, begging to be pressed. I believe that’s how you make the donuts.
