Car Of The Day: 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach Pack

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS made its debut during the 997 generation in 2010, receiving immense praise. The 991-generation GT2 RS was introduced in 2018, boasting 80 additional horsepower and 37 more pound-feet of torque compared to its predecessor. With these enhancements, it can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a breathtaking 2.8 seconds. The GT2 RS demonstrates its prowess by covering the standing quarter mile in just 10.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 211 mph.

Powering the 991 GT2 RS is a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine, delivering an astonishing 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. This power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed PDK twin-clutch transmission and a 3.96 differential with electronically controlled limited-slip. Porsche’s exceptional VarioCam system plays a crucial role in achieving these remarkable performance figures by optimizing timing in response to changes in engine speed.

The Weissach Pack, which features a carbon-fibre roof in place of the standard magnesium item, and magnesium alloy wheels; plus the Clubsport Package, which increases the car’s on-track usability and replaces the Weissach Pack’s titanium roll cage for an FIA-approved steel one.
