In a surprise turn on Sunday, the most powerful Porsche 911 of all time was unveiled during a press event designed to hype this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), which will kick off in Los Angeles this week.
The presentation, sponsored by Microsoft, didn’t offer many details on the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS other than its design features, but previous reports have indicated it will feature a 3.8-liter twin-turbo, flat-six engine stocked with 650 horsepower.
That’s right — 650 horses.
Italy, which hosts the annual Porsche Carrera Cup championship series, has a longstanding affinity toward the German sports car, given its deft ability to handle the Boot’s tight curves and elevation changes.
