More powerful Porsche 911 GT2 RS prototype seen anew

It has been nearly a year since we last saw Porsche testing their upcoming track-ready 911, the GT2 RS. Aside from being more powerful than the standard GT2, it will also have improved aerodynamics. Now our spies were able to take new photos of the GT2 RS prototype wearing less camouflage, allowing us to see the new updates Porsche was able to put on the car.

Based from the images, the GT2 RS now has the correct front bumper along with a new hood that comes with air ducts. The ducts may help in cooling the powertrain, or channel air towards the rear for extra downforce.

Over to the side, pretty much everything remains the same apart from the new side air intakes which now appear bigger than before. Towards the back, the 911 GT RS now has a new set of taillights, as well as the huge exhaust pipes and final rear bumper. Upon closer inspection, the track-ready GT2 RS also sports a rear diffuser hidden underneath the bumper itself.

Completing it all is the large rear wing which is slightly different from the previous prototype seen last June 2016.

It is expected that the GT2 RS will produce well over 700 PS and will only come as a rear-wheel-drive sports car.
