Porsche 911 GT2 RS - that's the name of the turbocharged 700 hp monster from Zuffenhausen. For those who believe that "more" is always possible, Porsche has put together the optionally available Weissach package. Among other things, the package includes 30kg weight reduction. This is achieved by elements made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic and titanium. In addition, magnesium wheels reduce the overall weight and the unsprung mass. AUTOart picks up exactly this GT2 RS with Weissach package as a model that has more of a racing car in its genes than that of a road vehicle. The models in scale 1:18 are available in Miami blue with golden rims, as well as in racing yellow, Indian red and white, each with black rims. All models have an authentic interior and a detailed engine compartment. The front wheels are steerable. AUTOart has various openings available for the high-quality models. The hood, the trunk and the doors can be opened.
The history of the Porsche 911 is a story steeped in tradition. The first Porsche 911 came onto the market as early as 1963. The design line has been further developed again and again without really abandoning it completely. An art that makes the Porsche 911 unique and so popular to this day. The 7th generation of the Porsche 911 came in 2011 with the 991 model. In June 2017, the GT2 RS followed as the 991 (2). The 991 generation was the generation with the greatest development step in the history of the 911. Almost 90 percent of all components were newly designed for the 991. For the first time, a model of the Porsche 911 weighed less than its predecessor. This is thanks to the many lightweight components on the 991. However, the GT2 RS defies all superlatives. Thanks to some carbon attachments, it is 130 kg lighter than a Turbo S and the most powerful production model in the more than 50-year history of the series. The bonnet, front fenders and parts of the rear are made of carbon, the roof is made of magnesium. The fact that the GT2 RS uses pure rear-wheel drive, despite its weight-to-power ratio, also ensures uncompromising driving pleasure.
In addition to the coupe, the 911 991 was also available in many other variants. In 2012, the Targa of the 991 was launched. In 2013, the special model “50 Years 911”, limited to 1963 units, followed. In addition to the 911 R, the 911 GT2 RS and the 911 Speedster, the millionth 911 was also produced in the 991 generation. The 911 991 GT3 RS has a 4.0-liter, 6-cylinder, high-revving naturally aspirated engine that delivers 520 hp and accelerated from zero to one hundred in 3.2 seconds. The GT2 RS even achieves 700 hp with its 6-cylinder biturbo engine. It completes the sprint from 0 to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds. While the GT3 RS reaches its top speed at 312 kph, the GT2 RS in comparison reaches 340 kph. However, both models have something in common - the Recaro seats, the roll bars inside and the not very discreet rear spoiler show that more motorsport is probably not possible in a road car. The 911 GT2 RS carries the motor sport know-how of a high-performance sports car and still masters the normal demands of everyday life.
