    Carlos from Spain:

    Anybody know if the Cup2 used were a special compound? I heard Porsche was working on a more track extreme version of the Cup2

    Heard this also the cup 2 - a new ultra cup ( no info ) and the trofeo R

    Probably not many tracks in the world where it helps to use 7th gear in that car - very impressive (25 sec faster than new GT3 and 30 sec faster than last GT2RS).

    Same gain on previous hyper car, too.

    Old GT2RS was 10 seconds faster than the Carrera GT.

    This GT2RS is 10 seconds faster than the 918.

    Most likely the CGT and 918 are faster than the 911s when you put them on the same tires.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Impressive NBR results by the GT2RS! This car would be a great track and fun toy!

    Well done Porsche!

    Im curious about the upcoming Corvette ZR1. Might do a similar lap time.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Just saw a new ZR1 with the top off. Looks trashy as fuck.

    There is a lag but not at higher rev figures of course. Smiley

    Turbo lags are best experienced when you drive the turbo charged car first and then the n/a car. Some people are sometimes really surprised how big of a difference it makes.

    I saw 5 cars in Weissach last Monday and it is stunning also in how deep the Sound of a GT2RS is - surely not as loud as a Performante - but the GT2RS has a very disdinquishable Sound compared to their other Turbo cars

    Turbo lags are best experienced when you drive the turbo charged car first and then the n/a car. Some people are sometimes really surprised how big of a difference it makes.

    This latest 9A1 motor + PDK has pretty much nailed the lag issue once in the boost threshold which on the 2RS looks to be over 3500rpm, the VTGs and high CR switch the boost back on instantly.

    It is all relative, my K24 3.9 litre Mezger compared to a K24 996 turbo spools much faster but for you RC driving an NA big capacity motor would be horrified - particularly if you think the 991 turbo has lag, it really doesn't once you are over 3000rpm.

    That is great news!

    Wonder if they could offer the GT2RS exhaust system as an option for the Turbo/S or if the difference in sound is due to more than the exhaust system, but I'm sure many Turbo owners would tick that option if available. It won't happen in the 991, but would be great if the 992 Turbo wound get a sport exhaust option like the smaller turboengined Carrera model.

    GT2 RS is the fastest Porsche 911 model of all time with 6:47.3 lap time

    September 27, 2017

    Porsche sets a new world record on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife

    Atlanta, Georgia. Porsche set a new lap record for street legal sports cars on the 12.8 mile (20.6 kilometer) Nürburgring-Nordschleife with the 2018 911 GT2 RS. Recorded and officially timed on September 20th, the best lap time of 6:47.3 minutes even surpassed internal expectations. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Head of Motorsport and GT Cars for Porsche AG, said "At the start of the development process, we set ourselves a lap time target for the GT2 RS of less than 7 minutes and 5 seconds. The credit for beating this target by 17.7 seconds goes to our development engineers, mechanics and drivers, who demonstrated an exceptionally strong team performance. This result makes it official: The GT2 RS is not only the most powerful, but also the fastest 911 model ever built."

    The record lap was not just a single occurrence: Lars Kern of Germany and Nick Tandy from Great Britain broke the previous record for street legal sports cars (6:52.01 minutes) immediately and proceeded to lap the track in under 6:50 minutes on five separate laps. Andreas Preuninger, Director of the GT model line, stated, "It's not just the record time achieved by the GT2 RS that demonstrates the vehicle's caliber, but also the consistency of performance in every lap. We're particularly proud of the fact that this was achieved with two different vehicles and two different drivers, as it underscores the ability of the GT2 RS to reproduce the record over and over again."

    Porsche factory driver Nick Tandy traveled directly from the six hour race in Austin, Texas to the Ring and adapted from driving the Le Mans prototype Porsche 919 Hybrid to the 700 hp 911 GT2 RS fitted with standard N-spec Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires in impressive fashion. Lars Kern, Porsche test driver by trade and a passionate race car driver in his own right, was the one to set the fastest final time. In addition to the Carrera Cup Australia, Kern regularly competes in the German VLN endurance racing championship on the Nürburgring and knows the Nordschleife like the back of his hand. The ultimate record lap began under ideal track conditions at 7:11 p.m. local time and ended 6:47.3 minutes later. The average speed on the 12.8 mile (20.6 kilometer) lap was 114.4 miles per hour.

    The fastest and most powerful road-going 911 celebrated its world premiere at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood, Great Britain. The heart of the high-performance sports car is a twin turbo flat-six engine producing 700 horsepower. This enables the two-seater weighing 3,241 pounds to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds. The top track speed of the rear-wheel drive Coupé is 211 miles per hour. Thanks to the race-bred powertrain, the new 911 GT2 RS surpasses its predecessor, which was equipped with a 3.6 liter engine, by 80 horsepower and delivers up to 553 lb.-ft. of torque.

    standard N-spec Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

    If this is correct then it is jus mind blowing what they did . 

    And if you look at the inboard lap, you see how smooth  composed and clean  the record lap was !!  Not all over the place and jerky like with some other fast cars .

    but corner speeds are so high that there must be an Trofeo R, CUP ZP grip equivalent tire on the GT2RS.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Well that official announcement from Porsche states it was regular MPSC2 tyres.

    Is this not the downforce coming into play, they're quoting 350kg at 300kph
