The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS (991.2) is a supercar that will appear in Forza Motorsport 7.
The 2018 GT2 RS was revealed alongside Forza Motorsport 7 during the E3 2017 Microsoft press conference. It will succeed the 997 GT2 RS as the most powerful car of the Porsche 991, the seventh generation Porsche 911.
The 2018 911 GT2 RS, officially launched at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed along with the introduction of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, uses a 3.8L (3,800 cc) twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine with a maximum power output of 690 hp (515 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 553 ft·lb (750 N·m) of torque, making it the most powerful 911 model ever built.
Unlike previous 911 GT2s, the 2018 911 GT2 RS uses a seven-speed PDK transmission to handle the additional torque produced by the engine. Claimed to accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) mph in 2.7 seconds, the 911 GT2 RS has a top speed of 211 mph (339 km/h), also making it one of the fastest 911 models ever.
The 911 GT2 RS has a magnesium roof and a front lid, front and rear wings, and boot lid made from carbon. The front and rear aprons are made of lightweight polyurethane, while the side windows and rear silencers are made of polycarbonate and titanium, respectively. Porsche claims 3241 lb (1470 kg) as a wet weight for the car, which would give the 911 GT2 RS a power-to-weight ratio of 4.70 lb/2.13 kg per hp.
