This week the what we believe is the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS was spotted speeding around the Nürburgring with minimal camouflage. The upcoming GT2 RS will be the most extreme take of the current 911 generation yet and definitely lives up to it judging by its intriguing looks.
Some even predict that the new GT2 RS might set a new Nürburgring lap time record considering that the 997 generation GT2 already lapped the famous Nordschleife in just 7 minutes and 32 seconds.
The 2018 Porsche GT2 RS looks seriously buffed up and certainly sports all the attributes of a proper track tool. It has a gigantic rear spoiler, flared wheel arches and big tailpipes at both ends incorporated into the rear diffuser. Under the hood lurks the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder that also powers the likes of the current generation 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S.
Right now it’s just speculating how many horses Porsche has managed to squeeze out of their six-cylinder for this GT2 RS, but expect it to be at least 592 horsepower. Even though it will lack an all-wheel drive system, the new GT2 RS is still expected to be unholy fast in a straight line.
It will also undoubtedly prove flawless on the track thanks to its proper aerodynamic bodykit and expected rear-wheel steering. Its center-lock alloy wheels appear to be shod with super sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 semi slicks, which meet the requirements for legal road use.
