Amazing!!! Porsche 911 GT2 RS 2018

Porsche 911 GT2 RS 2018, When we first drove the Cayman GT4, we suggested that the lowliest motorsport-grade Porsche road car was basically a gateway drug, the sort of entry-level thrill that, as Reefer Madness warned our grandparents, would lead to more serious and expensive addictions. Now, nearly three years later, we’ve met the automotive narcotic that sits at the top of that scale. On the basis of our first hit in Portugal, we suspect the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS could be the most potent automotive psychotropic of them all.
The name isn’t hard to decode, and we understand if your first instinct is to feel that this will be a familiar story. While GT3 versions of the 911 use high-revving naturally aspirated engines to give what is almost a perfect balance between performance and grip, GT2s use turbocharged engines to deliver a more brutish appeal and a generous excess of power. The RS addendum stands for Renn Sport and indicates this car’s track-centric mission. Whereas the previous-generation GT2 had an already gratuitous 620 horsepower, this new 991 edition moves that number up to a credibility stretching 700 horses, courtesy of a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six with a water-injection system to cool its intake charge. Peak torque, a modest 553 lb-ft, is delivered to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle (PDK); unlike the GT3, there is no manual option.
