GT2 RS is the fastest Porsche 911 of all times. Porsche set a new record for road-approved sports cars on the 20.6-kilometre Nürburgring Nordschleife in the 911 GT2 RS. The record time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds was achieved in the presence of a notary and surpassed even Porsche’s own expectations. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars, 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 ever built”.
At the heart of this high-performance sports car is a 700 horsepower (515-kW) six-cylinder biturbo flat engine. Weighing in at 1,470 kg with a full fuel tank, the lightweight two-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds. The rear-wheel drive Coupé has a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph) and with its near-motorsport drive technology, the new 911 GT2 RS trumps its 3.6-litre predecessor by 80 hp (59 kW) and achieves a torque of 750 Newton metres (an increase of 50 Nm).
