Official 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Pictures Surface Before Goodwood Debut

Just before the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS celebrates its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a number of official images of the car have surfaced online.

The pictures, leaked by Rennlist and picked up by GTspirit, offer us our first detailed look at the hardcore 911 since its preview at E3 2017 alongside the premiere of Forza 7.

As those previously published images revealed, the GT2 RS looks dramatically different to any other 911 variant thanks to its host of new aerodynamic components and gaping wide air intakes, particularly at the front. A number of matte black elements across the body help to provide the car with an even more dramatic look.

Just like the exterior, the inside is also rather special. The example pictured is bathed in red and black alcantara and leather elements and also includes a comprehensive rollcage behind the seats. Other distinctive touches include an outline of the Weissach track on the headrests and a ‘Weissach RS’ badge on the dashboard.

Porsche has yet to reveal how much power the twin-turbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine of the GT2 RS delivers but reports indicate it delivers 700 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, allowing the 911 to hit 96 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 3 seconds and a 341 km/h (212 mph) top speed.

    WOW! So very lucky whoever ends up owning.

    • Infinite1

      Agreed

  • Ameer Hassan Tajaldeen

    no one will notice the changes

  • Honda NSX-R

    Cool, will this be available in any other color?

    • SteersUright

      Hope not, and can’t wait to see this car in more colors!

  • ErnieB

    That interior gave goose bumps..

  • SteersUright

    The people who buy these should be obligated to pass a high performance driving exam. This will not be a car amateurs can handle. On looks alone, it appears to be an intimidatingly fast car. 911’s are already tricky at the limit and with 700hp, piloting this one should be properly insane. Any street car that comes with such a beefy integral roll cage from the factory and seats like those shown in the pics, is not for regular folk. It sure is bad ass as hell though. While the interior is cool, the exterior is overdone, almost comically. Im sure everything is functional, but this is not a sports car with beautiful lines such as a AMG GT, LaFerrari, 918, 488GTB or event the regular Carrera S/GTS/GT3. Porsche was a bit heavy-handed with the finishing design details. No matter, just looking at it makes me want to drive it!

    wow cant wait for teenage youtubers to show off one..

  • TheHake

    This is one bad-ass Porsche!

  • This car is perfect to replace AMG GT in Formula 1 to be new Safety Car…. So F1 drivers will not complain anymore…

  • fgclolz

    Looks more like a tuner car rather than something that came from the factory.

    • exeptor

      Exactly!

  • nastinupe

    Excuse me while I go rub one out.

  • Dennis James

    The red interior roof lining…was it really necessary ? It’s just a bit too much.

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      You don’t spec and buy this car out of necessity.

    • nastinupe

      It is a bit too much… along with 700 hp. You could actually make due with 350 hp. So basically if you are concerned with being reserved then apparently this car isn’t for you.

  • Infinite1

    Love it

  • Vassilis

    This will be amazing. I must say though, I hate those grey-coloured bits. They did the same with the previous GT2RS. The car would look so much better if they were body-coloured.

  • Blade t

    Looks pretty sick….
