Although the 977 was previously upgraded in both GT2 and GT2 RS, Porsche still decide to bring the GT2 RS to 911.
It is expected that the next generation of Porsche 911 will have to wait until 2019. The “heart” of new Porsche 911 GT2 will be the turbocharge 3.8 liter which is origin from turbo S, but with the lager turbochargers which can increase thrust capacity and a new lighter exhaust system.
Andreas Preuninge, The director of Porsche GT pointed out that the new GT2 RS might not be just an upgraded Turbo S, the new flagship in the 911 would be a brand new car.
At this time, Porsche said the newly upgraded engine in the 911 GT2 RS will be able to develop more than 641 horsepower and 750Nm of maximum torque, but these numbers will probably increase in the production version.
The new power will be delivered to the wheels via a 7-speed PDK gearbox and electronic anti-slip differential along with rear-wheel drive. The new 911 GT2 RS is expected to weigh less than 1,500 kg thanks to the thinner glass panels using Glass Gorilla technology on today’s smartphones.
In addition, this performance car will also be applied a lot of soundproof materials. Porsche is likely to be wiped out of its entertainment and air conditioning systems to further reduce the weight of the new 911 GT2 RS.
Porsche has applied the Weissach option package on the 918 Sypder to be able to cut 30 kg, using the magazin set (lighter 12 Kg), titanium roll cage (lighter than 7 kg), carbon fiber car roof and many other components used lightweight material.
In terms of performance, Porsche estimated that the 911 GT2 RS would need just less than 3.0 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h and less than 9.0 seconds to complete the acceleration from 0 to 200 km / h, Over 340 km / h.
With these numbers, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS can take up to seven minutes to complete a famous Nürburgring race track, while the GT3 version takes 7 minutes 12.7 seconds to do so. After three rounds of Green Hell, the five-liter fuel tank with a new water-cooled system will need to be recharged.
It is expected that the production of the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS will be started in the next few weeks, so the car will soon be fully disclosed before 2017. It is likely that 911 GT2 RS will be debuted at the Frankfurt Show. 2017 took place in September this year. Currently, the price of the 911 GT2 RS has not been revealed, but it will certainly be the most expensive model of the 911 and will have limited numbers.
