The 2018 GT2 RS was revealed alongside Forza Motorsport 7 during the E3 2017 Microsoft press conference. It succeeds the 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS as the most powerful car of the facelifted 991-codenamed Porsche 911 called "991.2". Unlike the 2012 GT2 RS, it is not based on any existing 911 GT2 model, but on the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
The 2018 GT2 RS holds a record for the fastest rear-engined production car at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with a time of 6:47.10 minutes, beating AWD cars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Lamborghini Huracán Performante.
The 2018 GT2 RS has a magnesium roof and front lid, as well as a carbonfiber boot lid made. The front and rear aprons are made of lightweight polyurethane, while the side windows and rear silencers are made of polycarbonate and titanium, respectively. It has front and rear wings to produce downforce.
Weighing 3197 lb (1450 kg) in the Forza series, it is lighter than the manufacturer-claimed weight of 3241 lb (1470 kg). It appears in the Forza series with the optional Weissach Package performance option.
The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS sports tremendous acceleration and launch with little wheelspin, accelerating from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.7 seconds. With a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), it is also one of the fastest Porsche 911 models in terms of top speed, making it suitable for high-speed racing.
While cornering is also a strong performance trait for this car, the loose rear-end in combination with the 691 hp (515 kW) engine requires throttle control to avoid oversteer.
