When the thermometer starts to dip, drivers like to call it “boost weather.” Engines, and turbos, are operating at much better efficiency, yielding a driving experience at its peak for the year.
With that in mind, it would seem like an excitable time to finally experience the 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 – its twin-turbocharged flat-six powers the fastest 911 ever built for road use at the time. But instead, the December weather just reminded us of how intimidating the GT2 was meant to be.
While it’s likely that Porsche will limit the new 911 GT2 RS to just a handful of elite clients, they are offering the experience of it to all of its fans through Forza Motorsport 7, a Microsoft title dropping in the fall of 2017 on Xbox and PC.
The Geneva Motor Show is not really the place to come with subtle yearly refreshes and facelifts, it demands the newest and very best each brand has to offer. Porsche and McLaren had these projects in the works for years, but 2017 was the culmination and assembly of these ideas in one place.
Performance cars are climbing and climbing to what seems like an inevitable plateau, which makes the ridiculous numbers associated with them seem less and less impressive each year. But if there’s any battlefield to truly fight for the industry’s attention, it’s the Geneva Motor Show.
The Swiss show centralizes the top European brands to sculpt the landscape of the next generation of cars. That next generation, for McLaren and Porsche, aims to stave off and elevate that plateau for at least a handful of years.
Ushering in the next generation of the most desirable luxury and supercars in the world has become the norm at Monterey’s car week, but it wasn’t always that way. The Pebble Beach Concours, the fireworks display at the finale of the weekend, was the celebration of decades of historic and significant vehicles, but up-and-coming events like The Quail Motorsports Gathering have shifted the focus to the new era of exotic cars.
Most performance sports cars shy away from the elements and stay in the garage when harsh weather hits. But when you’re the ultimate competitor, and points are on the line, the only option is go out and win.
The new 2017 Porsche 911’s performance figures show where the car is, but not quite how it got there.
In the more-turbo-than-the-other-turbos 991.2 Turbo S, the car is poised to slay any and all supercar competitors, and even the standard Carrera pushes the power figure ever higher than before. Such is the theme in today’s sports car competition: more horsepower gains and acceleration pulling toward the limit of what is physically possible.
