I like when companies devote effort to breaking track records, and Porsche’s recent efforts, especially those with the 919 Hybrid Evo have produced spectacular result. Even more than traditional motorsport, lap records tend to be lawless territory where car and driver can go beyond the limits of the racing rulebook in…
Oh, that’s precious. Y’all thought you could steal the “fastest road car on the Nürburgring” title from Porsche? Porsche, who lives just a short drive away? That’s cute!!! Porsche took back the record for the fastest street-legal sports car on the ‘Ring with a 6:47.3 lap time around the Nordschleife course.
Porsche, an automaker whose head of GT cars once said that Nürburgring lap times aren’t a priority, is apparently out to punch the Nürburgring lap time sheet in the face. The new 2018 GT2 RS was just spotted at the ‘Ring making a sub-seven minute run of the Nordschleife course where the battle over lap records goes…
The Goodwood Festival of Speed, an annual tradition where people get way too excited about cars going up a driveway, had one epic present from the folks at Porsche: the new fastest 911 ever, the 911 GT2 RS. You bet your trunk full of engine it’ll do some rad donuts.
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.
You know the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS? The one that’s supposed to be the most powerful 911 ever? Apparently it’s sold out, but if you ask the folks at Porsche, they won’t say. In fact, they won’t say anything. Porsche has yet to even acknowledge the new GT2 RS’ existence.
Contrary to Porsche’s official hum-hawing about whether the new 2018 911 GT2 RS will exist in real life outside of Forza Motorsport 7, someone on Bloomberg Posh claims to already have an allocation—and wants to sell it for $160,000 over what Porsche is charging for the car. Terrifying speed doesn’t come cheap. [Update…
A fast car, a track star the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is. A fast car, a rockstar, the fastest 911 there is.
The best Porsches are the ones that truly want to kill you. More power. Less weight. Exponentially less mercy. They’re the most desirable among a certain set of the Porsche faithful because they’re seen less like a car and more as a wild beast to tame. In other words, it’s about time they brought back the 911 GT2 RS.
Not at an auto show, not a special event, not at a concours: E3 is where Porsche dropped the 2018 911 GT2 RS, an absurdly ferocious-looking machine touted as the most powerful 911 ever. Why E3? Because it’s the cover car for the new Forza Motorsport 7.
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.
It's grating when tuners warp the clean Porsche 911 lines into something an angsty pubescent teen with a Sharpie might dream up on the back of a spiral notebook, but since that's a decent description of the stock 911 GT2 RS I'm not bothered by the GT2-based TechArt GT Street RS. This is the company's second attempt at…
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.
