DRIVEN: Hardcore Porsche GT2 RS Is An Ultimate Sports Car

Officially, it’s called the GT2 RS and under the familiar shape of a Porsche 911 it packs the performance to match or eclipse hyper-cars.

Unofficially, those in the know call it the “widow-maker” because few drivers have the skill to exploit its potential.

Porsche has taken its most powerful twin-turbo six-cylinder engine, given it even more urge, and then trimmed 125kg, notably deleting the front differential that provides so much grip in the, ahem, more affordable $495,000 all-wheel drive 911 Turbo S.

The GT2 RS costs a gobsmacking $700,000 by the time it’s in the traffic, even then adding options such as a $1690 rear camera.

It doesn’t even come with interior door handles. In the pursuit of lopping weight, the levers are replaced by a piece of fabric similar to seatbelt material.

Tug on those to open the doors before you start a form of Porsche yoga, clambering out of the tight sports seats. Master it, and your feet will touch the ground before your hands.

It may lack basic comfort features but the GT2 RS is in such hot demand even the rich and famous need to queue to buy one. Only about 60 are coming to Australia. All are sold.

More power and less weight is the formula that underpins all fast cars but with this one Porsche is pushing the boundaries of having too much of a good thing.
