911 Ex­clu­sive Se­ries; GT2 RS Re­vealed at E3

Car India - - BULLETIN -

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.
