The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS - abbreviated as 911 GT2 RS '18 - is a rear-engined supercar by Porsche featured in Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Street.

Synopsis

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 Porsche 991.2, the facelifted series of the seventh generation 991-codenamed Porsche 911. However, unlike the 2012 GT2 RS, it is not based on any existing 911 GT2 model, but on the 2016 911 GT3 RS.[1]

The 2018 GT2 RS also holds a record for the fastest rear-engined production car at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with a time of 6 minutes 47 seconds, and 10 seconds, making it faster than AWD cars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Lamborghini Huracán Performante.[2]

The 2018 911 GT2 RS has a magnesium roof and a front lid, front and rear wings, and boot lid made from carbon. The front and rear aprons are made of lightweight polyurethane, while the side windows and rear silencers are made of polycarbonate and titanium, respectively. With a weight of 3197 lb (1450 kg), it is lighter than Porsche's claim of 3241 lb (1470 kg). The in-game version is fitted with the Weissach Package performance option.[3]

Performance

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS sports tremendous acceleration and launching with little wheelspin, reaching 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.7 seconds, due to its powerful twin-turbocharged engine producing 691 hp (515 kW). While cornering is also a strong performance trait for this car, the loose nature of its rear end means that practice is recommended beforehand; despite this, the 911 GT2 RS '18 actually also displays moderate understeer when compared to its real-life rendition. With a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), the 911 GT2 RS '18 is also one of the fastest Porsche 911 models in terms of top speed, making it competitive in high-speed tracks.
