2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The new limited-edition 911 is the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built in the history of Porsche. With horsepower (hp) up by 90 and weight down by 154 lbs in comparison with the previous 911 GT2, the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS has a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.9 lbs per horsepower, by far the best power/weight ratio in its class.
Perfectly illustrating Porsche Intelligent Performance, the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS achieves a reduction of approximately 5 percent for both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions when compared with the previous 911 GT2. The 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine features two variable turbine geometry turbochargers and provides power to the rear wheels exclusively through a six-speed manual gearbox. Equally impressive stopping power comes from standard Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes (PCCB). New tires were specifically developed for the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS and measure 245/35 ZR 19 at the front and 325/30 ZR 19 at the rear, delivering cornering performance to match the straightline speed.
In its looks, the new 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS stands out clearly from the other Porsche 911 models through the lavish use of carbon-fiber-reinforced components with a matt-black surface finish, even wider wheels (including flared wheel arches at the front), new light-alloy wheels with central mounting and “GT2 RS“ model designations on the doors and rear lid.
The interior of the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS also exudes sporting performance in virtually every detail. Lightweight two-piece bucket seats made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic are standard, as are lightweight door panels with fabric straps instead of traditional door handles.
Limited to just 500 units worldwide, all of which have been accounted for, the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS will be delivered to eager customers in the U.S. beginning in February 2011. It carries a MSRP of $245.000.
