2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Revealed
The launch is not an accident or a leak, because Porsche has ended its exclusivity with Electronic Arts regarding the presence of its cars in video games.
The German marque has signed a six-year deal with Turn 10 Studios, the developers of Forza Motorsport 7, which allowed them to integrate the quickest and most powerful Porsche 911 ever made into the game.
As many car enthusiasts have observed, the presentation did not focus on the 911 GT2 RS that much, but we do know that it will come with more than 640 HP from a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat six motor with water injection technology. Porsche will only offer it with rear-wheel-drive, and rumors point to a PDK transmission as exclusive with this version.
Launching the most hardcore street version of the 911 during a gaming event is a big deal, and it would have been as significant for any other brand in these conditions. Porsche was initially expected to reveal the car during the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, or during an exclusive event of some sort.
We will learn more about the 911 GT2 RS in the coming weeks, as the company is expected to reveal the complete spec sheet for the model soon, as the order books are expected to be opened before the start of fall.
