Behold, The New 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS!

The scariest version of the Porsche 911 range, the mighty GT2 RS, has been previewed at the launch of the Forza Motorsport 7 video game.

Marking its first appearance in an official environment, and with no plastic cladding or vinyl wraps covering its sexy body, the extreme machine from Stuttgart is expected to be fully revealed by the automaker later this year.

And when they finally release all the details on it, expect it to use a twin-turbo flat-six engine that pushes approximately 650hp, with some reports going as far as 700hp, to the road through the only transmission available – a dual-clutch PDK. Naught to 100km/h (62mph) sprint should take less than 3 seconds, and top speed could stand at beyond 330km/h (205mph).

Working together with the aerodynamic upgrades to make the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS an absolute beast on a straight line and cornering will be a rear-axle steering system, along with torque vectoring and a variable locking rear differential, among others.

Porsche will put a lot of pressure on the Lamborghini Huracan Performante with the new 911 GT2 RS, but it remains to be seen whether it will steal the Italian supercar’s Nurburgring record.

      As for the looks, well, I think they should remove the stripes for me to really make my mind up.

      Why?

    I really don’t know who needs this kind of monsters. How many of these cars will be driven on track? How often? How hard? Apart from that this looks like another engineering masterpiece from Porsche. Still GT3 (with stick) for me.

    P.S. Front looks a bit weird.

      Most usually are, you would be surprised when you go to a track meet. But I’m with you on the GT3, I would rather that on the track, I hate driving turbos on the track, the lag in boost is too unpredictable.

    Looks a lot like the GT3 RS. I wish they made the wing look similar to the older one. I know it’s all about function over form, but that thing look hideous.
