Porsche have unveiled the new highly anticipated successor to the 911 GT2 RS at the Goodwood Festival of Speed along with a special 911 Turbo S.
With the accomplishments of the 1,000,000th 911 built and the victory at Le Mans 24 hour, Porsche has had a great year so far, so it’s no surprise that the new 911 GT2 RS should be an absolute thrill to drive.
So what’s new you ask? Well theres more power (80 hp) from two variable turbine geometry turbos, less weight and a wing big enough to eclipse the sun. It also comes with a PDK gear box and rear wheel steering. Your probably wandering why you will need rear wheel steering if the front ones are already pointing you in the right direction but, when your rear wheels are pushing out 750 Nm of torque with no help from the front ones then you will need all the help you can get to stay on track.
Included in the weight lost is an extra light titanium exhaust system and a magnesium panel roof which keeps it down to 1,470 kg but if your looking to save more weight you can opt for the Weissach package which is a £21,042 option and will save you en extra 30 kgs.
The interior is simple and track focused with lots and lots of suede and carbon fibre for you enthusiasts and you still get Porsches infotainment system as standard.
