The new GT2 RS is the fastest road going Porsche 911 everNext year a select few will be able to buy the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the fastest and most powerful 911 to ever be sold to the public.
[SOUND] There have now been over a million Porsche 911's produced since 1963. But there are as many different [UNKNOWN] as you could care to count. But there are a few dotted throughout history that are just that little bit more exciting than their siblings. The 993GT2 was such a car, built to meet homologation requirements of the GT2 class of racing, it added 959 technology to the 911 turbo, dropped the four-wheel drive in favor of a lighter retool drive setup, and created one of the most exciting road-going 911's ever. That was back in 1993. Fast forward to 2010 and an RS variant was added to the now 997 generation GT2 and the result was spectacular. Now Porsche have unveiled this, the 991, 911 GT2RS and at 691 brake horsepower, a 0 to 62 time of 2.8 seconds, On a top speed of 211 miles an hour this is the fastest and most powerful 911 ever to be sold to the public. Power comes from a twin turbo 3.8 litre flat six to delivered through a seven jaw clutch gear box. A special water mist spraying system keeps the airflow cool to maintain boost and the rear tires are the widest ever fitted to a nine eleven. And it will need it, as like it's predecessor it only spins those rear tires. Looks wise the industrial steel wings steals the show a little Apart from the imposing aerodynes and vents dotted around the place, the GT2 retains the classic lines that make a 911 what it is. The car goes on sale next year to a lucky few. For now all we can do is sit back and pray we get some time behind the wheel. [MUSIC]
