Leaked – Porsche 911 GT2 RS in first official images image

It’s not a leak per se – since the supercar was featured live and with no camouflage whatsoever on stage at E3 earlier this month, but we do see the importance of seeing official images on the Internet ahead of time.

This most likely means the model is expecting an imminent official introduction from Porsche itself, perhaps during the weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed where it has already been advertised to make an appearance of sorts. The images also bring an important detail – a view of the cockpit – with stripped-out interior cabin outfitted with lots of carbon fiber and a two-tone finish with a predominantly black appearance contrasted by red accents, including for the headliner. You also can’t get past the huge roll cage behind the bucket seats, which come with a carbon fiber shell to keep the weight low. And it also looks like the fans of the GT2 RS will also be treated to a matching watch.

“Weissach RS” lettering in red can be seen on the headrests and we also encountered a plaque on the carbon trim on the passenger’s side, complemented by n outline of the track. We might have here an optional Weissach package in the same vein as the 918 Spyder or simply it will be a standard feature on any 911 GT2 RS. According to reports, the updated biturbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine is cranking 700 horsepower and the PDK-exclusive model is tipping the scales at a mere 1,500 kilograms (3,306 pounds) for a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in 2.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 212 mph (341 kph).
