991 Generation (2018-)

At Xbox E3 2017 Porsche unveiled the 2018 911 GT2 RS along with the Forza Motorsport 7 Xbox One racing game. It features new fasica, gt3 rs bodywork, as well as a 3.8 L Twin-Turbo Flat six. The GT2 RS has 700 hp and 553 lb of torque allowing for a top speed of 211 mph and a 0-60 time in 2.7 seconds and a 0-125 time in under 9 seconds. The car has an optional Weissach Package that will save more weight . Only 1,000 units will be produced with prices starting at $290,000.

997 Generation (2010-2011)

On May 4, 2010, an RS variant was announced to German dealers in Leipzig. The GT2 RS develops 620 PS (456 kW; 612 hp) and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of torque and weighs 70 kg (150 lb) less than the standard GT2, allowing for a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph) and 0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration of 3.5 seconds.

According to Porsche Motorsports manager Andreas Preuninger, the RS was conceived around 2007 as a skunk-works effort. The 727 code number selected for the project corresponds to one of the Nissan GT-R's lap times around the Nurburgring's Nordschleife. When the dust settled, Porsche claimed that test driver Timo Kluck had supposedly eclipsed that target by an impressive nine seconds.
