The automotive industry and the video games world has forged a connecting bond that is just as strong with the cinema one and in less time, so there’s no surprise that surprising auto debuts are now taking place during gaming conventions.
Porsche and Microsoft have partnered to unwrap the 911 GT2 RS during E3 where the top of the range 911 not only appeared virtually via in-game footage of the Forza Motorsport 7 title but also in the metal. The new 911 flagship is going to adorn the cover of Turn 10’s new racing game and you can start driving it – virtually this time – starting October 3 when Forza 7 will be out on the PC and the Xbox One, with those adopting the all-new Xbox One X need to wait until November 7. The Porsche model wasn’t actually detailed during the E3 presentation, with fans having to just bask in the wild body design that takes extravagant cues from the 911 GT3 RS and intersperses lots of carbon fiber.
There’s a huge rear wing and vented front fenders, a carbon fiber roof, and different, more aggressive, front bumper. The car’s derriere and the interior were not included in the stage show, but in-game footage with the king of Stuttgart shows big round exhaust tips and a lightweight cabin with a roll cage and two body-hugging elements. As far as technical details are concerned, we know the biturbo 3.8-liter of the Turbo S has been serviced to deliver more than 641 horsepower (478 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-meters) of torque.
