911 Exclusive Series; GT2 RS Revealed at E3
PORSCHE HAVE INTRODUCED A SUPERexclusive 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, with exclusive styling and details, and more power, too. And it’s limited to just 500 units.
The Exclusive Series represents a performance jump over any 911 car on offer even today. It has an exclusive power-kit that takes the output of the 3.8-litre boxer-six up to 607 PS and 750 Nm. Its power is 27 PS up on the 911 Turbo S and, more importantly, just 13 PS down on the 2010 997 GT2 RS, the fastest, most mental 911 ever. All of that, paired to the seven-speed PDK twin-clutch automatic driving all four wheels, translates into 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and 0-200 km/h in just 9.6 seconds. The top speed of 330 km/h matches the 997 GT2 RS’as well.
The Exclusive Series gets black-painted 20-inch wheels, centre-locking nuts, black calipers for the ceramic braking system with the Porsche logo in exclusive Golden Yellow. Standard equipment includes the active sports chassis with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the Sport Chrono package. There’s even an exclusively crafted chronograph on offer.
Inside, there’s rich black upholstery with golden contrast stitching, and gold stripes across the sports seats. Fine copper thread is integrated into the carbon trim. Finally, there’s a plate with the limited-edition number.
GT2 RS INCOMING
Porsche also revealed the next-generation 911 GT2 RS at the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) in Los Angeles. The new GT2 RS is, in fact, on the cover of Forza Horizon 7, and makes its electronic début in the popular franchise. Already being tested at the ’Ring, the GT2 RS’ output levels are unknown, but Andreas Preuninger, Head of GT Cars at Porsche, has been noted by Total 911 saying that it delivers more than 650 PS and 750 Nm, with the engine being a derivative of the 3.8-litre boxer-six. He added that the focus was on speed and that meant the PDK would be offered as standard, driving only the rear wheels.
