620+ horsepower plus full-bodied carbon-fiber GT2-RS equals massive fun
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is already a beast of a car fresh from the factory. Basically a turbo, packing extra power, less weight and rear wheel drive, the GT is incredibly fast to begin with. With only 500 of the 997 generation cars slated to be built, they are rare as well.
If the 620 horses that the RS leaves the factory with is not sufficient, there are companies like German tuner TechArt who offer a GT2 RS program that will help you get the most out of your Porsche. Their program will help you increase the output from your GT2 RS to 720 horsepower.
If you still need more, please direct your eyes to the video below. The vehicle is a 997 generation Porsche 911 GT2 RS that has had all of its sheet metal replaced with carbon fiber body parts. Yes, you read that correctly, a carbon fiber 911 GT2 RS. With that in mind, you can bet that this car tips the scales at significantly less than the 3,050 pound weight of the stock RS.
The 620+ horsepower plus the weight savings of a full carbon fiber body is everything you need for one seriously fast car. It is good to see a car this spectacular and unique is thriving in its natural environment, the racetrack as it would be such a shame for a car this special to be relegated to garage queen.
The video below shows the carbon fibered Porsche 911 GT2 RS playing on the TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands.
Unfortunately, experiencing such an amazing vehicle in its natural environment is something most of us will never experience.
