No limits Only temptation:The Porsche 911 GT2RS
Strong willed and agile, there is no 911 like this one. Advanced and nearly perfect.
The Porsche 911 GT2 model range started with the magnificent 993 generation GT2. It featured a wide-body with aggressive aero and a big wing in the back. It produced an insane 424 horsepower and was eventually boosted to 444 horsepower. It was still a pure drivers machine. Today we have the GT2RS. The most schizophrenic modern 911 that you can purchase. After all you are spending $300,000 for a 911, so it better be the best of the best.
And the reason I call it schizophrenic is because of how powerful and mental this Porsche is. From a 3.8 L twin-turbocharged Fat-6 it produces a jaw-dropping 691 horsepower and 553 lb ft of torque. Absolutely outstanding numbers for a flat-6. Just about 700 horsepower from a flat-6 in the trunk of a lightweight sports car are some of the perfect ingredients for a dangerously sinister vehicle. Despite all of the aero, the GT2RS only weighs 3,241 lbs thanks to lots of carbon fiber as you'd expect in a performance car of this caliber.
I will admit I prefer the naturally aspirated 4.0 L because of its pure form and its sound, but it sure can't match the performance of the 3.8 L that is twin-turbocharged. The GT2RS is a further track oriented version of the GT3RS and the interior proves this. Tight bucket seats are a feature as well as lots of alcantara to keep the car light. Leather would be too heavy and slippy. No manual sadly. You do however get a quick shifting 7-speed PDK with shift paddles, so that's good enough.
The fender louvers and large air inlet on the rear fenders give the 911 a spry look. The wing is massive of course and is carbon. The hood of the frunk is carbon fiber as well. The intakes above the engine compartment are also carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is everywhere indeed. As far as the paint goes, I find it to be fantastic. Sure its not Miami blue, but it is Racing Yellow. And I love yellow. So it works for me.
Wel,l all I have to say is the 991 Porsche 911 GT2RS is one of the coolest track-ready supercars that will ever be put on the road. It has the most wild aero, has so much raw power and just looks and drives incredibly well. One of my favorite modern 911s ever.
