2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS B-roll footage – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We'll admit it – the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS gives us the willies. There's something about the idea of 620 horsepower packaged into a 3,020-pound body that sends shivers down our spines, but we'd be liars if we said we weren't dying to get some seat time. (Or 'Ring time. Whatever.)

Only 500 of these beasts will be produced, retailing from $245,000 when the first deliveries begin this October. And when you consider that the GT2 RS is the most powerful street-legal Porsche available today, we doubt that enthusiasts in the top tax bracket will have any trouble scooping up all 500 examples in relatively short order. For now, Porsche has just released some B-roll footage of the hardcore GT2 doing what it does best on the track, and we highly encourage you to see for yourself, after the jump.

      - Fuel? Check.
      - Tire pressure? Check.
      - No GT-R anywhere nearby? Check.

        Ring lap times - Porsche GT2 RS 7:18, GT-R 7:26 (almost 7:27)

        it's too bad you can't have nearly as much tail-out fun in a GT-R as you can this car.

        This thing would rape a GT-R and any of it's offspring. The GT-R is more 911 Turbo area.

      This is re-donkyballs! Very nice find on the You tube vid, that does have to be the best commercial I have seen yet!

      It was love at first sight.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I lamost forgot...GTR Vspect have 7:20" on the ring ;)

        @M7

        And the GT2 RS does a 7:18 so what's your point?

        Yeah it's cheaper but that doesn't bother me, nor a lot of other people. And so many other supercars are more expensive than 911s yet people only bring up the GT-R when it's a Porsche.

      If I had to find a fault...and I'm probably being overly analytical...I'd say the contrast-colored rear-quarter intake is a bit out of place. Other than that, I love this thing!

        besides weighing twice as much as it should and isn't electric then it's good.
        get with the program people. electric owns this archaic steam locomotive tech.

        What do you mean by "deathtrap"?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Nice find! That one definitely highlights the "deathtrap" image we all know and love.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm not exaggerating when I say that that may have been the best auto promo I have ever seen.
        • 4 Years Ago
        ok, now I can't stop playing this ^^^ video....it's looping in the background while I'm working....
        Engine Soundtrack....
        Tire/Pavement Soundtrack....
        Not-Overbearing Rock Soundtrack....
        Plenty of Drifting....
        Just a dash of Heel-and-Toe and shift action....

        This vid manages to make the GT2 RS look graceful and brutal at once.
