Carmaker Porsche has now a new rear wheel drive turbocharged flagship in the form of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. This summer will be complete by the introduction of the powerful RS with a pumped-up energy of over 600 Hp.
Ten years ago, Porsche introduced the 997 GT2 RS with 611 Hp, rear drive, manual, turbocharged with a 3.5-second acceleration rate from 0 to 62 mph, or 6.8 seconds from 0 to 100 kph taking seven minutes 18 seconds to circle around the Nurburgring track. This summer, car enthusiasts will see another upgrade of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with a 3-second rate of acceleration from 0 to 62 mph or an easy 124 kph below 9 seconds, reaching a top speed of 211 mph.
To accommodate the added power and torque of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, basing on its 3.8-liter turbocharged engine, cranking up to 641 Hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, the car maker upgrades an additional pair of large turbos and increasing the boost pressure proportionately. There is also a revision of the engine's insides and providing a lightweight exhaust system made of titanium.
A new water spray intercooler system is installed in the Porsche 911 GT2 RS just like the one found in the BMW M4 GTS supplied by a 5-liter water tank. The tank needs refilling after three superspeed laps around the Nurburgring track as it lowers engine temperature by 15 degrees to permit the power play and torque output, reports Evo.
Porsche 911 GT2 RS development is headed by Andreas Preuninger says that the car is a purely reengineered version of power. He adds that the precision, nimbleness, and agility makes the RS easy to navigate on and off the tracks. The supercar will have an automatic dual clutch seven-speed sports PDK transmission which is deemed necessary to the RS powerful power and torque; the 997 RS is the last of the manual transmission units, reports Auto Blog.
The price tag for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is expected to start at $200,000 as there is no news about its starting cost yet. Its intro into the market will complete the summer of car fans and enthusiasts.
