2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS leaked online




Porsche’s hotly anticipated Porsche 911 GT2 RS has leaked onto the internet ahead of the car’s official debut over the weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

As we expect, the GT2 RS comes with a stripped-out interior, lots of carbon fibre and a two-toned colour scheme of predominantly black combined with red accents, including the headlining.

There’s also a sturdy roll cage behind the body-hugging lightweight carbon fibre sports seats with “Weissach RS” embossed on their headrests. The same script can also be found as a plague on the carbon trim on the passenger’s side, with both being complemented by an outline of the track.

We will have to wait for the official details for what’s lurking under the car but according to sources close to Porsche, the 911 GT2 RS will pack around 515kW from its uprated 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine. It will be matched exclusively with a PDK transmission, which propels the car from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 341km/h. And thanks to the weight stripping measures, the flagship 911 is said to tip the scales at around 1,500kg.

Porsche will reportedly build just 1,000 units of the 911 GT2 RS with all supposedly spoken for. It also appears lucky owners will get a matching watch.
