The straightline speed is on a completely different level with this GT2-based racer. Armed with slick tires, an offensively large rear wing, the rear window inserts (read: air jack-equipped) from a Cup Car, and a bodykit with even more cutouts and canards, it’s safe to assume this Porsche is some test mule for what could be an upcoming racing car.
It’s been twenty years since Porsche has campaigned a turbo 911-based car in any serious capacity, but with most of the new lineup of 911s sporting force-fed motors, there’s a good chance this one is a move in that direction. This camouflaged Posche sounds the part too—with a wonderful bark accompanied by the telltale whooshing and popping that should, ironically, silence the naysayers.
What’s also certain is the rear-engine configuration. As opposed to the most recent batch of GT3 RSRs, this machine’s rear window is tellingly vacant, except for a rollcage. Had the motor been mounted midship, it would’ve been partially visible—or at least its accouterments should be.
Maybe this is a racer that will see competition, or perhaps it’s more a Club Sport version of the already focused GT2 RS. Whatever this monster is, it’s undoubtedly one of the fastest accelerating Porsches I’ve laid my eyes on in some time (watch the way it butchers a Cayman GT4 at 4:42 in the video below). A successor to the 993 GT2 Evo? Yes please.
