Porsche 911 GT2 RS ~ 2010-
By combining the GT2 and RS badges Porsche came up with a winning combination. The 997 GT2, in its original form, was a potent car that combined the power of a 911 Turbo with the fun and excitement of rear-wheel drive. With the RS Porsche added light weight into the equation (in true RS style). Out went interior fripperies and in came a lightweight rear window, carbonfibre body panels (including the bonnet). The RS was 70kg lighter than the previous GT2, weighing in at just 1370kg. Other body changes included RS-style front arch extensions and restyled front and rear spoilers.
Power, meanwhile, was up 90bhp over the first GT2, to 620bhp. That gave a power-to-weight ratio of 2.21kg per horsepower. And in turn that gave stunning performance. 0-62mph took 3.5 seconds, 0-124mph was 9.8 seconds, while top speed was 205mph. The RS was Porsche’s fastest production 911.
Just 500 examples of the GT2 RS were sold worldwide.
