Techart’s version of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS delivers 710-hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, easily making it the most powerful car that it has ever built. The latest GTStreet offers an excellent performance and comes in an aggressive styling package that uses a lot of carbonfiber. A boost in power is the result of the use of Techart’s TA 907/T2.2 power kit, enabling the GT2 RS to run from a standstill to 62 mph in only 3.3 seconds and to reach a top speed that approaches 219mph.
On its exterior, we can see that the front bumper has a carbon fiber splitter and has an adjustable splitter built from polyurethane-RIM for extra downforce. The entire rear spoiler is built of carbon fiber while its rear apron has a carbon fiber diffuser.
In addition, Techart has its Noselift System available for the GT2 RS, enabling owners to make adjustments to the height of their Porsche by approximately 0.4-inches with just the push of a button.
Consumers may choose from a wide range of Techart wheels but what’s recommended are 20×8.5-inch wheels in the front and 20×12-inch wheels in the rear. Techart has not yet released the pricing for its GTStreet program for the 2012 911 GT2 RS.
Upon closer inspection, the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS effectively conveys two of its main attributes -- aerodynamics and lightweight construction. Porsche managed to significantly improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics, allowing the 911 GT2 RS to exhibit around 60 percent more downforce than on the "regular" 911 GT2. In terms of performance, this improvement ensures the car’s stability even moving at very high speeds on road and track.
Since several of the car’s body components are made of carbon, it is lighter than the 911 GT2 by around 70 kg (154 lbs). Thanks to this lightweight construction, the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS weighs only 1,370 kg (3,021 lb) on a full tank and with all operating fluids present. Moreover, the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS features extra-large air intakes and outlets as well as an additional air outlet located in front of the bootlid.
This outlet guides waste air upwards out from the center radiator, thereby improving air flow through the radiator and enhancing aerodynamic downforces on the front axle. To further distinguish the new 911 GT2 RS from the 911 GT2, Porsche had the extra-large bootlid constructed from visible carbon.
This carbon bootlid weighs around 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) lighter than the already light aluminum bootlid of the 911 GT2. Another distinguishing element is the slats on the air intake and air outlet in front of the bootlid – they are now made from lightweight carbon fiber-reinforced plastic. Also, the front spoiler lip of the 911 GT2 RS has been made wider than on the 911 GT2, and now features stronger, shovel-like contours along the sides.
Moreover, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS gets wider wheel arches on the front axle, thereby increasing the car’s body front width by 26 mm (1.02 inches). These body-colored flared arches – now positioned further outward – dynamically accommodate the car’s wheels and tires and are made from a special plastic material.
