Porsche last summer presented a real racing car for public roads – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
The novelty has been on the first tests of our foreign colleagues that a cursory glance try to understand its advantages and disadvantages.
Observers of the magazine Caranddriver primarily thinking about why in the cabin of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with package Weissach Cup holders, if, instead of the rear bench seat is a brace, and some suspension component made of carbon fiber, exactly as the rudder petals.
But the main thing is how to ride a Porsche 911 GT2 RS, and it’s “brutal, but no bad manners” — written colleagues, what could not boast of the predecessors.
Despite the thrust-controlled car very obediently, both on the racetrack and on public roads.
In the car observed the Spartan furnished: no air-conditioning system or multimedia system, which even in the autumn in the salon can be so hot that can not save even the open Windows. Racing “buckets” is not suitable for all owners of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
Racing suspension transmits to the body almost everything that comes under the tyre of the car, but at high speed the situation is changing, and the shaking becomes moderate.
The motor even at idle it sounds distinctly loud, but the turbine must be at least 2 500 rpm, that its work is beginning to be felt. The maximum power developed by the engine at 7,000 rpm, whereas the cutoff works 7 200.
The first transmission from semiskorostnoy “robot” PDK by the standards of Porsche are very short, second gear ends at 100 kilometers per hour, and the car can due to excess power easily breaks into wheelspin.
But unlike the predecessor, during acceleration there is a feeling that govern sports car, and problems with his control to the limit arises.
Wheel from Porsche 911 GT2 RS lightweight, when compared to the German competitors. But the feeling of control is brilliant, and feedback to the driver is amazing.
At low speeds the chassis has a neutral balance, but when you turn off traction control, throw the car into a skid and make it screws in turn, is not difficult.
After running the motor said that has never driven a car with so loud a turbocharged engine. The active valve exhaust system located at the end of exhaust nozzles that do not significantly change the character of the sound.
That Porsche abandoned the classical “mechanics” on this model – plus, certain browsers that remember your flour with a 612-horsepower Porsche 997 GT2 RS when they tried to catch a fine line between a good start and that you do not “burn” the clutch and not “fall” turnover.
On the legendary British Silverstone, the memories of observers Topgear, Nissan GT-R was much slower than the 911 GT2 RS, and acceleration in “German” is impressive not only to the first 130 kilometers per hour, but after 240 miles per hour.
On a wide road, you can afford almost everything, but when it leave on the public road, even a slight press on the gas pedal leads to exceeding the admissible rules of speed.
The compartment is controlled very precisely, and this is surprising because not so easy to convey 690 horsepower to only the rear wheels. The car is absolutely predictable what he absolutely didn’t expect.
But after three or four laps on the track, tires Michelin’s trackiest Cup 2 starts to overheat, and this immediately leads to the fact that the car starts to go past the bends, while the steering loses accuracy.
In General, the reviewers agreed that it was a real Porsche racing car for public roads.
