Here is a shot of the upcoming Porsche 911 GT2 RS taken at a dealer event and leaked to the press along with a few details. Kudos go to Autoblog and Teamspeed for this scoop.
The 911 GT2 RS will be a true racer built for making remarkable track times. It will likely feature a roll cage and an active suspension and perhaps some adjustable aerodynamics too.
As for power rating, we can only guess that the RS will come with a significant power boost over the upcoming 2012 GT2, which will feature around 550 PS (405 kW). Teamspeed is reporting the figure at 620 hp (462 kW) and that the car will weigh 90 kg less than 997.1 GT2. The 0-100 km/h sprint will clock in at 3.2 seconds. The GT2 RS series will be limited to 300 units.
Full details on the 911 GT2 RS will be made available when Porsche officially introduces the car on May 14.
According to the Autoblog source, the car will cost €240,000 ($317,000).
