Porsche continues its North American tour of the race track with a stop in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, and a small track called Road America. Anyone who is familiar with this, of course understands that small, we really mean a little more than four miles in length. Despite its size, the famous track has 14 corners just as one would expect it very fast course. In fact, the Porsche says that the race veteran David Donohue turned round in the 4.04-mile known only 2: 15.17 seconds behind the wheel of shares, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS production specification. It's fast enough for the automaker qualify for another record production car.
To do this time to live for you, the average speed of a Porsche around a test track at about 108 miles per hour. It's really quite impressive, because while the track has only 14 turns, half of them are narrow bends 90 degrees or more. In addition, in its on & # 39; to achieve the appearance, the Porsche says Donohue made a record time after only two knees. The weather conditions were favorable for a solid run and GT2 RS was equipped with road-legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires R N0.
Like the previous run of the Porsche on the track Road Atlanta (who also set a new record), the automaker brought aspirated 911 GT3 RS along as well. Despite the lack of availability of supply of almost 200 horsepower (149 kW) compared to its brother forced, high-revving GT3 RS clocked Road America round 2: 18.57 – a little less than four seconds slower. Yes, it is an eternity in the race, but with a break in the power, it further shows cornering bite with a GT3 RS.
Porsche presented the new 911 late last fall in 2018 in the Los Angeles Motor Show, but the automaker is certainly not letting the present generation to fade quietly into the night. Something tells us that we will hear about the 911 GT2 RS recording on other tracks for months.
