Since the pictures of this new 911 GT2 RS have already leaked on the Internet Porsche, unintentionally, released the first official image of the car along with the official details of it. The 2011 GT2 RS is the most powerful road-going Porsche ever built. It comes with 90 more horsepower than the standard GT2, while it’s 70 kg (154 lbs) lighter.

The 3.6 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine in this car is heavily tweaked and the power is increased from 530 hp in the GT2 up to a massive 620 hp! And thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber the whole car weighs no more than 1,370 kilograms (3,020 lb), so it has a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.9 lbs (2.21 kg) per horsepower which is astonishing.

The 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine features two variable turbine geometry turbochargers and provides power to the rear wheels exclusively through a six-speed manual gearbox. Equally impressive stopping power comes from Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes (PCCB).

So it’s no wonder that the GT2 RS can do 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, reach a top speed of 205 mph and lap the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 7 minutes 18 seconds!

This new GT2 is distinguished from normal model by a number of exclusive visual features including flared arches, carbon fiber bonnet, carbon fiber air ducts, redesigned front spoiler lip and the 3/8th of an inch (10 mm) taller rear spoiler lip, and the new 19-inch light-alloy wheels with central locking and “GT2 RS” model designations on the doors and rear lid.

Inside you get lightweight two-piece bucket seats as well as lightweight door panels with fabric straps instead of traditional door handles. The dominant material here is red and black alcantara.

The wheels are wrapped in 245/35 ZR 19 at the front and 325/30 ZR 19 at the rear high performance tires. Porsche has equipped the GT2 RS with Adaptive Suspension Management (PASM), unique anti-roll bars, specific engine mounts and recalibrated Porsche Stability Management (PSM), whose stability and traction control functions can be switched off individually. But it takes no genius to say it still is an untamed beast! The normal 530 hp GT2 is very very tricky to handle, let alone this monstrous version!

2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is limited to 500 units and will go on sale in America from October 2010. The pricing for this car has turned out to be less than expectations, as it has a MSRP of $245.000. Good Value!

The GT2 RS is making its world debut at the Moscow Auto Show on August 25th 2010.
