New 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Features Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes

July 10 2017

The fastest and most powerful street-legal 911 model ever, the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS celebrated its official world premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.

The 911 GT2 RS features Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) as standard. The front fenders, wheel housing vents, outer shells on the Sport Design exterior mirrors, air intakes on the rear quarter panels, and parts of the rear are made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), as are many of the interior components. The front luggage compartment lid is also made from carbon fiber to make the vehicle as light as possible.

The optional Weissach package reduces weight by nearly 40 pounds, further enhancing the vehicle dynamics of the 911 GT2 RS. The package includes magnesium wheels, and numerous elements made of carbon fiber. For instance, with this optional package, the roof and anti-roll bars are made of carbon fiber, as are the end links on both axles.

The interior of the 911 GT2 RS is dominated by red Alcantara, black leather, and carbon fiber trim pieces as standard. Drivers and passengers can experience the driving dynamics of the high-performance sports car in Full Bucket Seats with carbon fiber reinforced backrests. The clock face is also made of carbon fiber.
