Meet the most powerful 911 ever: the new 2017 Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Attached Image Just when you thought the most extreme 911s couldn't get much faster, along comes Porsche with a 700 horsepower machine.

The excess-all-areas sports car was unveiled at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed by works endurance and former F1 driver Mark Webber.

Key spec figures for the GT2 are:

Engine: 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six
Power: 700hp, or 690bhp
Torque: 553lb ft
0-100km/h: 2.8sec
Top speed: 339km/h
Kerb weight 1470kg

You can tell the new 911 GT2 RS is an extreme race car for the road, rather like its predecessor; the huge vents in the bumper and front wings, massive brake calipers and rear wing make sure of that. Dan Greenawalt from Turn10 said the GT2 RS ‘features the most powerful roadgoing 911 engine ever made.’
