2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS unleashed

Looks like the the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS with 620HP has somehow been let out of the bag and oh my this is more car than most can handle. Porsche went all out here and it makes you wonder how much more can you put into a machine like this! Could this be the fastest Porsche ever when reaching speeds of 205 mph and maybe even higher?

Our friends at Sub5Zero.com give you the photos , video and breakdown of this upcoming beast of a car.

Apparently, some people have been worried Porsche has lost its way, citing the Cayenne and Panamera as evidence of a softer, family-oriented Porsche that cares more about producing profit than producing the kinds of cars that made them an icon. If you were one of these people I would hope the brilliant Cayman S, Turbo or Boxster Spyder would have helped you sleep at night, but if not then this should; it’s the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Car and Driver takes the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 for a road test and guess what? They went really , really fast! It’s hard to compare these super fast machines to other vehicles because they are so fast and so expensive that you are paying for the experience. Just be careful….

Such notes appear from time to time on my Porsche test cars. Everyone puts their own spin on the American dream. For Can, my not-so-anonymous Vietnamese neighbor, a red 911 has a starring role. Can was 16 when he first saw a red Porsche, from behind the concertina wire of a refugee-relocation camp in Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania.

“My brother pointed it out. He said, ‘James Dean died in one of those.’ ”

MotorTrend: The Cars We’re Looking Forward to Driving

MotorTrend takes what they saw in Geneva and breaks down the cars they look forward to driving. We’d like to get our hands on a few of these gems as well.

Porsche’s hybrid supercar concept is the star of the show, and the good news is that while it’s a concept, it’s anything but vaporware. The 918 Spyder’s technical specification reads like a science experiment and its claimed performance like science fiction. But as Mike Connor reports, Porsche is apparently considering building a strictly limited run of production versions — maybe 750 to 1250 in total — using a similar business model as the Carerra GT’s. Significantly, Porsche CEO Michael Macht made a point of saying the company has only ever shown one concept car that never made it into production. So consider our hand up for the first drive. Please form an orderly line to the left.

Comparison Articles from Car & Driver

Here’s a great comparison article of three hot sports/luxury/incredible and beautiful cars! Car and Driver hit it on the head by claiming: The startling new Porsche sedan goes toe-to-toe with a glamorous Italian and a businesslike German.

From Car and Driver:

Exhibit A: The German sports-car maker’s bestselling vehicle since 2003 has been a sport-utility vehicle, the Cayenne. Exhibit B: The car before you, the company’s first production sedan, is a further hyperextension of the Porsche lineup. Exhibit C: The attempt by Porsche to take over Volkswagen resulted in a perfect reversal of fortunes: Volkswagen took over Porsche.
