Porsche has unveiled the fastest and most powerful edition of its iconic 911 sports car- the 911 GT2 RS! Wait for it... It's powered by a turbocharged 700-horsepower 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine. Now, that's overkill!!
It's a rear-wheel-drive and not 4x4. Speeds are enormous, kicking off from 0 to 60 mph (100km/hr) in just 2.7 seconds. Its max speed is 211 mph. Thus, this combo makes the newest 911 the fastest road-legal version Porsche ever made.
The engine is based on the one now used in the 580-horsepower Porsche 911 Turbo S, but it's been fitted with larger turbochargers along with some other power-boosting changes. The GT2 RS also has rear-axle steering for improved cornering. This is a system that, at low speeds, turns the back wheels slightly in the opposite direction of the front wheels for tighter cornering and, at higher speeds, turns them in the same direction for greater stability. The car has Porsche's seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
In a bid to loosen weight, backseats are nonexistent and many interior parts of the car are made from lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced plastics.
Base price starts at $293,200.
