Porsche 911 GT2 RS up close

 Porsche 911 GT2 RS up close
2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS

We get a look at the new carbon bonnet and Alcantara interior

Here is a new and better look at the upcoming Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

We can spot in these photos the new carbon bonnet and side intakes, we also get a peek inside the Alcantara interior. Is that a roll cage bar near we see?

The 911 GT2 RS is a stripped-down race version of the already powerful GT2 (550 PS / 405 kW), likely featuring a roll cage and active suspension, and will come with 620 hp (462 kW) according to reports. It will weigh about 90 kg less than the 997.1 iteration GT2. Limited to 300 units, the GT2 RS makes the 0 to 100 km/h run in 3.2 seconds.

Expect more details when the car makes its debut on May 14. Price is said to be around €240,000 ($317,000).

Wow...impressive numbers... truly impressed. But why are they not improving their Body Styling...it still looks like a supercharged Frog to me...

Ridiculous, I'd rather be in a NATURALLY ASPIRATED Italian supercar if I'm paying that much....

hmm. interesting is how good will this car be. 458 scuderia competitor maybe or not if it kills the driver instead

Damn. The ultimate 911. If they ever make a 997 Turbo S, that's the one I'll be wanting.

Frankly I would much rather the 458 Italia over this. The only Porsche I would get if I could is the new GT3RS.

A carbon fibre bonnet? Hmm, it looks good on a grey car, but the wrong choice of colour could easily make this bruiser look a bit daft. I also wouldn't mind just a little bit less red on the inside. The scarlet alcantara on the centre console (just behind the handbrake) is one detail too far. I like the bigger chin spoiler though, and that they didn't put stickers all over it. Still, that's all trivial when it comes to a hardcore version of the most dangerous 911 ever (with the electro-nannies switched off at least). Only for the very talented. And rich, obviously.

For cars with this level of perf, the 0-100 value does not mean much anymore... they are so close to each other. Second point, I see here an easy way to get more cash out of a already known product... collector they call that... if you think a Turbo delivers nearly 540 HP for an official 500. Is it really so hard to make this GT2RS ? I'd take a GT3 RS over this and leave the GT2 RS for those who do not know what to do with their $$

This will be as fast as the 599GTO for 1/3 of the price. Best of his class, bye bye Italia, LP570-4 SL, SLS, MP 4-12(?), and this will be hardcore to drive, probably the purest car to drive from the bunch...

0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds with a proper manual , Porsche rules. i'm sure tests will reach sub 3 seconds times in good conditions.
