New spy shots of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS have been snapped as the car undergoes cold weather development work.
While Porsche has yet to confirm the existence of a GT2 RS in either development or the drawing board, these spy shots would seem to confirm the existence of such a model.
The test mule used here has all the tell-tale signs of a GT2 RS. The mule has the body of a 911 Turbo and features a larger, different rear bumper that appears to be designed to handle a larger, throatier exhaust. Also apparent is a carbon fiber hood. All of these minor clues point towards the possibility that this is indeed a GT2 RS development car.
While we don’t have any concrete details regarding the GT2 RS we can specuate somewhat based on the changes the last GT2 RS received over the standard GT2.
We expect the new GT2 RS to feature the same 3.8-liter engine that is currently used in both the Turbo and Turbo S. However, we expect the power output to be increased significantly. The last generation of GT2 RS increased power output from 493 to 611 hp to give you some idea of what kind of power we could expect.
