New Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a ‘Total Attack Weapon’
Doug DeMuro finds that the newest GT2 RS has enough power to make it more than just the ultimate Porsche 911.
In one of his latest vehicle reviews, popular Youtuber Doug DeMuro gets straight to the point. Right at the beginning of the video above, he says, “This is the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS and it is the single craziest Porsche 911 ever made. Ever.”
It’s a logical sentiment. That’s what the GT2 RS always has been. What else do you call a lightweight-ed 911 with two turbos, more horsepower than a 911 Turbo S, and only its rear wheels responsible for transmitting all of that extra grunt to the road? This newest version of it keeps the same formula and takes output to a new high. Its twin-turbo flat-six cranks out a ridiculous 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Flat out, the GT2 RS can hit 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph. Those are impressive numbers by themselves. They’re even more impressive when you consider the fact that the GT2 RS is more powerful and faster than the 911 GT1 Straßenversion, the street-legal version of a Porsche Le Mans race car from the 1990s.
And look at those front fender vents. DeMuro makes sure to point them out. “No car does fender vents quite like the…GT2 RS. They’re these giant check marks” which help manage airflow and keep the GT2 RS’s nose planted at high speeds.
The Weissach Package on DeMuro’s test car makes the super-911 even more bonkers. It heightens the car’s already impressive performance with features such as an exposed carbon fiber front trunk and roof, and carbon fiber anti-roll bars and shift paddles.
All of those enhancements make the GT2 RS more than just the ultimate 911. In DeMuro’s opinion, they make the GT2 RS into a “total attack weapon” that’s both terrifying and thrilling. You can see it in his eyes when he puts his right foot down. You can also hear it in his voice when he says, “Whoa. Well, that’s…that’s…that feels like the 918.”
