New Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The ultimate road-going 911: fast, ferocious, surprisingly accessible but with a real sting in the tail

The GT2 RS is a lot more than simply a GT3 RS with a tweaked Turbo S engine dropped into the tail, although that is how the project began its life. Extensive use of lightweight materials means that Porsche has managed to keep the weight to 1,470kg, which can be lowered by nearly a further 30kg with the optional Weissach Pack. That includes items such as a carbon roof, unique carbon anti-roll bars front and rear, and magnesium wheels. So overall it’s ‘light’, but not exactly a true ‘lightweight’ at those sort of figures.
