The current “King of the Ring,” the new Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS is an incredible machine to behold up close. It’s so focused on speed that it’s damn near a racecar, but being a road car, all of its functional fine details have to be well-finished. All of the air vents are finished with beautiful carbon fiber and the single piece center-lock wheels are quite elegant in addition to being functionally lightweight. As an object, the GT2 RS is something very special.
I also took a look under the rear bumper at the exhaust system, and DAMN! It’s a valved Porsche Sport Exhaust like the optional system on lesser 911s, but in the GT2 RS the butterfly valve is basically just a straight dump hole out the rear of the catalyst assembly. That means the exhaust sound will be about as rowdy as can be when the valve is open, and it will only get channeled through the muffler when the valve is closed. In short, your neighbors may hate you.
But everyone at Cars and Coffee will love you, so I guess it evens out. It was a thrill to see this thing in person for the first time. Enjoy the gallery!
