    997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    The time: seven minutes, 18 seconds on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. The power: 620 hp. The weight: 1,370 kilograms or 3,021 lb in road trim with all fluids on board. The car: the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The GT2 RS is making its world debut at the Moscow Auto Show on August 25th.

    The future top GT model marking the absolute climax in the 911 range is the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built in the history of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart. With power up by 90 hp and weight down by 70 kilograms or 154 lb in comparison with the 911 GT2, the new 911 GT2 RS has a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.21 kilos or 4.9 lb per horsepower, by far the best power/weight ratio in its class. Obviously, these are the ideal ingredients for an ultra-high-performance sports car with supreme agility, truly blistering performance on the road, and of course exemplary Porsche Intelligent Performance. For despite this extra power and performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions versus the 911 GT2 are down by approximately 5 per cent to 11.9 ltr/100 km (equal to 23.7 mpg imp) and 284 g/km.

    The 3.6 litre six-cylinder boxer engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry exclusive to Porsche in its combination with a gasoline engine drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Developed especially for the 911 GT2 RS, sports tyres measuring 325/30 ZR 19 convert this massive power into equally massive performance and acceleration on the road: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h in 28.9 seconds. Top speed is 330 km/h.

    Equally supreme stopping power on this ultra-high-performance sports car comes from PCCB composite ceramic brakes. Appropriate longitudinal and crosswise dynamics are ensured by the sporting RS set-up of the springs, PASM Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management, anti-roll bars, as well as the dynamic engine mounts and PSM Porsche Stability Management.

    In its looks the new 911 GT2 RS stands out clearly from the 911 GT2 above all through the lavish use of carbon-fibre-reinforced (CFR) components in matt-black surface finish, even wider wheels and flared wheel arches at the front, new 911 GT2 light-alloy wheels with central locking, as well as ”GT2 RS“ model designations on the doors and rear lid. The upgraded front spoiler lip and the rear spoiler lip made of CFR and now 10 millimetres or almost 0.4 inches higher, again in surface carbon finish, ensure the right aerodynamic precision as well as extra downforce.

    The interior also exudes the flair of sporting performance in virtually every detail, featuring lightweight bucket seats made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic in carbon surface finish and lightweight door panels with door opening straps. The basic interior colour is black, contrasting attractively with features such as the seat centre sections and the roof lining as well as segments on the steering wheel rim. The gearshift and handbrake lever are both finished in red alcantara.

    Limited to just 500 units, the 911 GT2 RS will be available in Europe from September 2010, in the USA from October 2010. The Euro base price is 199,500.- Euro. Including VAT and national specifications/equipment the new 911 GT2 RS will retail in Germany at a price of 237,578 Euro.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Compared to the Carrera GT, this car is a real bargain and after the 997 GT3 currently probably the best deal from Porsche.

    This car gives me hope for the next 911 generation, the 991.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Any more info about the interior ? is plain black or dark grey possible ? or 2 tone is the only option ? I think I saw 3 seats available for the GT2 RS one of them being the adaptive sport seat

    It says: "at no extra cost a black leather trim with either red or black Alcantara is available"

    Standard seats are lightweight buckets with red Alcantara. The folding back buckets with airbags are optional and adaptive sport seats a NCO. The latter two can be either black/red or black/black depending on the trim.

    Black with the black wheels is nice but a little over-the-top for me. (too Knight Rider for this old coot)

    Black with gold wheels and Black/black interior would suit quite nicely.

    Right!..I'm off to rob a bank!bandit.gif

    Black with gold wheels and black/black trim is my favourite!

    For something more racy, the one below.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    This car is a work of art, and maybe one of the most and valuable Porsche of all time. At this price, this is the bargain of the year, some years from now it will worth way much more than that, a pure car colector, congrats Porsche, amazing car you put together.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I would get a GT2 RS in all black matte but I guess this is a matter of personal preference/taste. Not even sure if Porsche can make this color choice happen.

    That would be sinister RC. I can see all the neighborhood children running in terror to their mothers when you drive by.  Keep the revs down!

    The new GT2 RS is a top supercar BUT for it to become a Porsche Legend it must become involved in Motorsport and win something.

    I don't under what rules it could race but Porsche should find a Series suitable for this tour de force.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

     None unfortunately!

    The ACO sanctioned series are not favorable to turbo engines. (bar set too low)

    FiA GT1 is useless as all the cars are performance balanced. badmood.gif

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

     They don't even want GT2 cars - thats why Porsche has opted for the R and not the RSR.


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Just checked out the configuartor. I cannot believe that they charge you Euro 2.600 for a black exterior... The rest looks great though Smiley 


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Seven minutes, 18 seconds on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife......outstanding!!


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Red and black interior it's like the devils lair!!!

    More bhp than the CGT.

    Just wait until clarkson gets his hands on one of theses, probably do another top speed challange on the autobahnSmiley, i look forward to the stig doing his lap in it....

    Very funny Porsche colour choice. GT Silver and Red are standard but Black and White are extras at cost!

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    After seeing this, the only question is what is next with the 991...


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I was expecting much more comments on this car... is it that the rennteamers are tyred of the extreme 997?

    On the other hand I think this car is a bit too much tuning...  But I like the performance!!!!

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Absolutely AMAZING!!! I thought that the new GT3RS was the nicest 911 ever, but now i think this one its even nicer! It might be a bit to much the tuning 80hp more, but if porsche can do it why not? the more power the better and 70kg lighter is a big difference! I believe it kill both F458 and LP-560 superleggera and hopefully the LP-670 SV.... I think its time to place an order for this car since my GT2 has already 35.000 km

    I don't think a GT2 RS would necessarily perform any better than what's already out there. To me, race cars take the production car, and then just start modify everything that they can. I don't think you'd really have much production car GT2 RS left after you converted it.

    It's still a 997 for the most part, and they have been racing 997's for a while.

     Best combination so far, would like to see a ps of an all white car with graphite wheels.
