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.

The 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS - abbreviated as Porsche GT2 '12 or 911 GT2 RS '12 - is a rear-engined supercar that appears in the Porsche Expansion packs for Forza Motorsport 4, Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Horizon 2.

It appears as standard in all titles since Forza Horizon 3, although it was only unlockable during the Forzathon events Lead The Way and Hot And Heavy Horizon in that title.

Synopsis

Similar to the GT3 RS, the GT2 RS is a track-ready supercar 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 and the 997.2 codenamed facelift generation.

The GT2 RS was offered in a limited production run of 500 cars from 2010 to 2012. In 2017, the 991.2 GT2 RS, part of the sixth generation 991 codenamed Porsche 911, was unveiled as the 997.2 GT2 RS's successor for the 2018 model year.

The GT2 RS is powered by a 3.6 liter flat-six engine with two variable-geometry turbochargers (VGT) which have significantly less lag compared to wastegate variants. The engine produces 611 hp (456 kW) at 6500 rpm and 516 ft·lb (700 N·m) of torque from 2250 to 5500 rpm. The GT2 RS is officially claimed to run from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) 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.[2][3] It also has a roll cage and fully adjustable suspension and brakes.

Performance

Powered by a 611 hp (456 kW) engine with twin turbocharging, the GT2 RS offers tremendous acceleration times such as a 0-100 mph (161 km/h) time of 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 practice beforehand.

Trivia

  • The 2012 GT2 RS must be used for unlocking the achievement "Pieces Of Flare" in Forza Motorsport 4.
  • Its engine can be fitted onto various Porsche cars in Forza Motorsport 4.
  • It appears as the North American specification model in the Forza series as evidenced by a modified rear bumper and side markers.
  • The hood is carbon fiber by default, and hides any decals and vinyls applied onto it. Using the "Porsche - Street Hood" upgrade changes the color of the hood to be the rest of the car, thereby showing any and all vinyls applied onto it.
