Porsche Pulls It's Best Punch Yet: GT2 RS. And Now Speed Is Scared…

Official details and photos have been released on the upcoming
Porsche GT2 RS, which will be unveiled to the public on August 25 at the Moscow auto show.

It will produce staggering numbers except for the number of GT2 RS available: 500. Horsepower: 620 (90 more than 911 GT2). Weight loss versus the 911 GT2 will
be a substantial 70 kg. That power rating will make this the most potent Porsche road car in
history. Don't discount the achievement of squeezing every drop of power from a 3.6 liter boxer engine, with much credited to the
twin turbochargers.

The details:

The car will weigh a mere 3,020 lb (1,370 kilograms), giving it a
power to weight ratio of 4.9 lbs (2.21 kg) per horsepower, and rides on
245/35 ZR 19 tires at the front and 325/30 ZR 19 for the rear axle. It
will come with anti-roll bars and Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management
(PASM).

It's time on the Nürburgring's Nordschleife track: 7 minutes and 18
seconds. 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds), 0 to
200 km/h in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h in 28.9 seconds. Top
speed: 205 mph or 330 km/h.

To shed weight, Porsche makes use of carbon-fiber-reinforced (CFR)
components, such as the CFR plastic for the bucket seats.

"GT2 RS" tags are placed on the doors and rear lid to distinguish the
car too.

The car will be available in North America starting in October 2010. The Euro base price is €199,500. Including VAT and
national specifications/equipment the new 911 GT2 RS will retail in
Germany at a price of €237,578.  For the Canadian market pricing starts at
$297,000.
