    • 2018 Porsche 991.2 generation 911 GT2 RS expected to top 700 horsepower

      What do we know about the 991.2 GT2 RS? Not too much. We know it is coming and we know it will be the most powerful and highest performance 911 ever produced in Porsche history. It will not be available with a manual as reports state PDK transmission only.


      The PDK obviously is the choice for performance which is what the GT2 RS is all about. You better believe it will perform as the car is expected to drop a few hundred pounds compared to the 911 Turbo and also gain power. How much power? Over 700 horsepower is expected.

      Now, that is obviously a ton in a rear wheel drive setup and Porsche did at one point state the 991 GT2 would not come due to traction issues. First of all, traction is overrated. Secondly, this is a rear engine car with 315mm or larger tires in back. The traction complaints are overblown with today's rubber and traction control systems. If a Z06 can exist, so can a GT2.

      Bring it on Porsche. It's time to remind the world what the 911 is capable of.

        This will be a fun one. Should run deep 10's at high 130's and be an absolute handful on the track, but capable of running near record setting times in the right hands.

        I'm guessing Porsche will target sub 7 minutes on the 'Ring.

        I think Chris Harris said at one point the old GT2 RS was his favorite car ever at the time. At least I seem to remember that. If this is basically a GT3 RS with a Turbo engine then it should be very, very, very good. And maybe once again deserving of such praise.

        Just wish I could afford the 400-500k necessary to obtain the previous-gen these days...insane...

        Maybe I'll move into one of these one day unless the 992 is truly incredible.
