The legendary Porsche brand has innovated yet again, with the introduction of the new 2011 911 GT2 RS, clocking in as the fastest Porsche 911 of all time.

Built for speed

Its monster numbers include a 3.3 second 0-60 mph, a 0-124 in 9.8 seconds, and 0-186 in 28.9 second times along with a 6-speed manual transmission powering 620HP. Its power to weight ratio is the best in its class, besting the GT2 by 155 lbs. while adding additional horsepower. Top speed reaches 205 miles per hour. For perspective, a recent drive at Nurburgring from start to finish took a little under 8 minutes. Ceramic brakes provide impressive stopping power to the tune of a 102 ft 60 to 0 mph stop. Unlike the previous generation GT2, this version has new wider alloy wheels with a higher rear spoiler lift, resulting in improved aerodynamics. Fuel economy is a modest 16/23 mpg.

Interior

The color scheme is classic black and red Porsche with lightweight carbon fiber plastic bucket seats (red seat center sections and black outer sections and on the steering wheel.) There are also black on black combinations. Even the gearshift is split between red and black. Also coming standard are door panels fashioned with fabric straps, replacing average Joe door handles.

Availability

Look for the 2011 911 GT2 RS to hit dealerships for $245,950. There will only be 500 units sold in Europe and the States.
