Porsche 911 GT2 RS – images leaked ahead of debut

Leaked – Porsche 911 GT2 RS in first official images

Porsche hasn't been absolutely specific with the GT2 RS' output figures since its unveiling at E3 in Las Vegas earlier this month, though the marque has said its 3.8 litre twin-turbo flat-six will have more than 641 hp and 750 Nm of torque.

For over five decades Porsche has evolved the 911 formula, making more precise performance tools.

We should finally know more about the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS in coming days, but for now, enjoy the images.

Porsche says the GT2 RS will carry on to a blistering top speed of 340km/h. Its massive Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires also clung to the asphalt with 1.07g of lateral grip.

Maersk has yet to say when operations will return to normal or disclose the total business impact of the cyber attack . The cost of the cyber attack is still being assessed, according to the company.

The new model is Porsche's fourth 911 GT2.

Much like the Porsche 918 Spyder, this 911 can be optioned with a Weissach package. Power is sent to the GT2's rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

To mark the launch of the new 911 GT2 RS, Porsche Motorsport has teamed up with Porsche Design to create a new watch, which will be offered exclusively to buyers of the new 911 variant. Almost every exterior panel has been modified or replaced, culminating in a fiendishly extreme rendition of the basic 911 shape. Extreme as it is, the GT2 RS will nonetheless come with a respectable amount of creature comforts such as Porsche's PCM infotainment system with navigation, plus the Porsche Track Precision application that make detailed driving data recording available via one's smartphone. An optional Chrono Package expands the Porsche Communication Management system's functions to include a performance display, which can be used to show lap times.

As ever at Porsche, with great power comes great MSRP, and this most powerful street-bound 911 in history is also the most expensive street-bound 911 in history-by a lot-at $273,584 to start. The GT2 RS' twin-turbocharged engine makes a walloping 515kW and 750Nm, making it the fourth most powerful vehicle sold in Australia behind flagship supercars offered by Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren.
