Although it's based on the Porsche 911 Turbo, the 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS coupe is very unique from the rest of the line- though there is an even more powerful 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 model. This coupe has a starting price of $246,000, and it's worth every bit of change that's included in that figure. The sporty luxury vehicle features a powerful 620 horsepower, 3.6-liter H6 engine as standard and a six-speed manual transmission as standard. As would be expected for a car of its type, the GT2 RS' fuel economy ratings are not that impressive, at 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
The 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS coupe is lighter than other Porsche 911 models, specifically the Porsche 911 Turbo, due to its rear-wheel-drivetrain. (The 911 Turbo features all-wheel-drive). It's also lighter due to its lack of several interior components. In other words, many of the comfort and technology features have been taken out. However, after review, we can say that there are certainly enough features to keep us happy- especially when considering the vehicle's power and speed. Standard safety features include: Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, Stability and Traction Control, Enhanced Porsche Stability Management, an anti-theft alarm and engine immobilizer, Bi-Xenon High Intensity Discharge Headlights, rear foglights, several airbags, side guard door beams, Porsche Side Impact System, and a trunk anti-track device.
Sporty features include sports leather seats and steering wheel, a rear spoiler, front and rear alloy bumpers, Porsche Active Suspension Management, Sport Ride Type, and 19-inch alloy wheels. As for technology and comfort features, these include keyless entry, a USB port, AudioPilot Speed Sensitive Volume, an MP3 player, an iPod jack, wireless communication access for Bluetooth devices, cruise control, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
