All new Porsche 911 GT2 RS 2011 Promo Trailer
Porsche has unwrapped its latest missile, the 2011 911 GT2 RS, which the company describes as the “fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built in the history of Porsche.” The GT2 RS arrives in the U.S. in October, priced at $245,000, after its world debut in late August at the Moscow auto show. Production will be limited to 500 units. Output on the car’s twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter flat-6 engine has jumped to 620 horsepower, with power delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. Thanks to an aggressive diet, weight has been trimmed to 3,020 pounds, providing an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 1 hp/4.9 pounds. The GT2 RS rockets from 0 to 60 in a mere 3.3 seconds and laps the Nurburgring in 7:18. The GT2 RS maxes out at 205 mph.
The GT2 RS gets some additional hardware improvements, including wider light-alloy wheels and new tires (245/35ZR19 in front and 325/30ZR19 in the rear), composite ceramic brakes, adaptive suspension management, specific stabilizer bars and engine mounts, plus a re-calibrated stability management system that enables the driver to individually switch off stability- and traction-control functions. The looks have changed subtly, thanks to the application of matte-black carbon-fiber components, as well as flared front wheel arches and redesigned front and rear spoilers. The cockpit is black with red accents, and features lightweight two-piece carbon-fiber bucket seats. The gearshift and handbrake lever are trimmed in red Alcantara.
