The 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a rear-engined supercar that appears in the Porsche Expansion packs for Forza Motorsport 4, Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Horizon. It will also appear in the Forzathon event Lead The Way in Forza Horizon 3.

Similar to the GT3 RS, the GT2 RS is a track-ready sports car but based on the twin turbo powered 911 GT2. Being capable of reaching 205 mph (330 km/h) as top speed, it is the fastest car of the 997 codenamed sixth generation Porsche 911.

The GT2 RS was offered in a limited production run of 500 cars from 2010 to 2012.

DescriptionEdit

A 611-horsepower engine crossed with an elegant leather interior. The most powerful production car ever built by Porsche, coupled with looks that would cause a sailor to blush. The 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the top of the line version of Porsche’s 911 and features stunning looks along with twin turbos, an adjustable suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and the kind of power that demands attention. No wonder so many reviewers referred to Porsche’s masterpiece as “Beauty & the Beast”— it’s at once a stunning piece of automotive eye candy, and objectively one of the most terrifyingly powerful cars to be released in years. Yet, despite its grunt, the GT2 RS manages its power well. A few turns in the GT2 RS is all you need to be convinced: this is a smooth-driving and easy-to-handle car at low speeds and one that will peel your face off at the limit.

CharacteristicsEdit

The GT2 RS is powered by a 3.6 litre flat-six engine with two variable-geometry turbochargers (VGT) which have significantly less lag compared to wastegate variants. The engine produces 611 hp (619 PS; 456 kW) at 6500 rpm and 516 ft·lb (700 Nm) of torque from 2250 to 5500 rpm. The GT2 RS is officially claimed to run from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and hit 205 mph (330 km/h), although it can reach higher top speeds in each Forza series title.

The body of the GT2 RS is fitted with a front splitter, rear diffuser and gurney flap on the rear wing, which are made in carbon-fiber and greatly increase downforce that is required to make the car's high power output viable on the road. It also comes with a high number of weight reduction applications such as a titanium exhaust and carbon ceramic brakes, allowing the RS to weigh 154 lb (70 kg) less than the standard GT2 model.[1][2] It also has a roll cage and fully adjustable suspension and brakes.

Driving CharacteristicsEdit

Powered by a 611 hp engine with twin turbocharging, the GT2 RS offers tremendous acceleration times such as a 0 to 100 mph time in only 6.7 seconds. Although the engine has strong low-end torque, the GT2 RS launches off the line with surprisingly little wheelspin. Cornering is also a strong suit for the car, although its loose rear does require some practising beforehand.

TriviaEdit

  • The GT2 RS must be used for unlocking the achievement Pieces Of Flare in Forza Motorsport 4.
  • The engine of the GT2 RS can be fitted onto various Porsche cars in Forza Motorsport 4.
  • The GT2 RS appears as the North American specification model in the Forza series due to a modified rear bumper and side markers.
