Porsche 911 GT2 RS - best supercars

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS carries a massive premium over the GT3, but few buyers will care with such extraordinary performance

It’s not every day that a new Porsche 911 GT2 RS hits the road, but 2017 saw just such an occasion as the German marque launched its 690bhp monster.

Powered by a rear-mounted 3.8-litre flat-six turbocharged engine, the GT2 RS will hit 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds en route to a top speed of 211mph when equipped with the Weissach pack.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS review

In this state, the GT2 RS weighs just 1,441kg - 29kg less than the standard car - although you’ll need to lighten your wallet as well to the tune of a further £21,000, on top of a list price of £207,000.

Superb damping means that the ride is brilliant, and it provides a stable platform that allows you the driver to exploit the huge performance provided by the engine. No wonder it held the lap record at the Nurburgring for a while.
