700 hp for Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The awaited Porsche 911 GT2 has been caught during cold weather testing.

The GT2 prototype is actually a hardcore variant of the 911 Turbo. The car features a cool blue exterior and contrasting black accents on the hood, air inlets and front fascia. At the back there is an adjustable rear wing, a 4-tailpipe sports exhaust set-up and a changed rear bumper. The production offering will have a more aggressive aerodynamic body and a whole range of details that save its weight.

The automaker did not tell much about the car. As far as we know, it will be equipped with a 3.8-litre biturbo V6 unit generating almost 700 hp. If to compare it with the 911 Turbo S, the new car has 120 hp more. The car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach top speed of 205 mph.

We still don’t know if the vehicle will be sold with a manual transmission. According to the rumours, a PDK gearbox is a chance. The 911 GT2 will be rear-wheel drive.

The Porsche 911 GT2 will be debut at the end of 2017.
