Years from now, we will look back at Henry Catchpole as one of the greatest automotive personalities. His Carfection films are more than just a review. He digs deep into the emotions released by the experience while telling the story of each car. This week he chose to take on the greatest Porsche so far, the 991.2 series GT2 RS.
Having driven the GT3 RS, he instantly makes note of the additional 88 lbs of weight. Engineers dialed in more suspension to compensate, but many parts are shared between the two. Most importantly are the control arms and rear-steering. They have no rubber bushings, and the ball joints transmit all the right vibes into the cockpit. The Weissach package includes 21″ mag wheels, a titanium roll cage, and it borrows the comfortable racing seats from the 918 Spyder. I had no idea Porsche is using water injection to cool the intake, and the front-mounted reservoir is a work of art. With almost 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, it could be easy to lose your composure in front of the camera, but this car speaks for itself.
