New World Record Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

New World Record Porsche 911 GT2 RS set for road-approved sports cars on the 20.6-kilometre Nürburgring Nordschleife on September 20. The record time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds was achieved in the presence of a notary and surpassed even Porsche’s own expectations.

Combined fuel consumption in accordance with EU 6: 911 GT2 RS: 11,8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 269 g/km.

In a high-performance sports car, the weight is as important as the drive.

In the new 911 GT2 RS, consistent lightweight materials enables extraordinary performance. The power to weight ratio is only 2.1 kg/hp – athletically defined. The lightweight materials used are crucial to this.

Titanium.

The rear silencers of the newly developed, independent exhaust system are made of titanium.

Magnesium.

The roof is made of magnesium. Like the front lid, it is contoured in the middle. This is not only an aesthetic feature but also increases the rigidity of the component.

Lightweight glass.

For the first time at Porsche, lightweight glass has been used for the rear and side windows. The light material is also particularly scratch and fracture-resistant.

Lightweight polyurethane.

For the front and rear apron a lightweight yet extremely stable high-tech material is used: lightweight polyurethane with hollow glass microspheres and carbon-fibre elements.

Weissach package.

There is a real synergy between design and lightweight construction, although particular focus is placed on the reduced weight. With the Weissach package, the vehicle weight is reduced by nearly 30 kg compared to a 911 GT2 RS with Club Sport Package. 11.5 kg is due to the magnesium forged wheels and approx. 12 kg is due to a roll cage made of titanium (instead of steel for the Club Sport Package).

And – for the first time in a series-produced car – the stabilisers on the front and rear axles as well as their coupling rods are made of carbon.
