The big news from Germany is that Porsche is only building 1,000 examples of the new 911 GT2 RS, according to an article by AutoBild. If your air-cooled cruiser needs a rebuild, maybe its time to update your collection. However, every example has been spoken for, and they will arrive with 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Launch mode in the PDK transmission will have you at 100 kph (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, but it’s the only transmission offered. Making use of carbon fiber body panels and limited insulation, a curb weight of 3,300 lbs is light for any twin-turbo car. Those who opt for the Weissach package will save an additional 44 lbs thanks to titanium and magnesium goodies.

A top speed of 211 mph is achieved thanks to clever aerodynamics. The spoilers generate the same dowforce at that speed as the GT3 RS does at 187, but who’s counting at this level? For those that don’t intend on racing, Air Conditioning and leather seats are optional pleasantries. Weight distribution is 39/61, and only the rear tires are powered. Hopefully, the electronic safeguards are easy to disable to make for fun in the corners. If the notion of twin-turbo tomfoolery is overwhelming, the GT3 isn’t going anywhere. The 500 horsepower naturally aspirated 911 is going back to basics with a manual transmission, so choosing between them might be tough.
