2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Lights Up a Traffic Jam in Serbia

Yes, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS has made its dynamic debut back in the summer, being dropped at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, with affluent Porschephiles having already placed orders for the most extreme street-legal Neunelfer to date. However, it seems that the German automotive producer continues to test King Kong.

The freshest proof comes from Eastern Europe, with an example of the Rennsport Neunelfer having been spotted over in Serbia this weekend - lens tip to Autogespot for these images.

The GT2 RS, which appears to be dressed in Guards Red and features the all-fetishy Weissach Package, showed up in Belgrade, the country's capital city.

And while the number plate of the 700 hp supercar indicates this is a Porsche-owned vehicle, the thing happened to be photographed right behind a Ferrari 599 GTB, with the latter using a Serbian plate.

These days, it's impossible to talk about the 991.2 generation of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS without mentioning the rumors about the rear-wheel-drive special having set a new Nurburgring production car lap record.

Last time we discussed the matter, the rumor mill fed us an amazing piece of track gossip, with the GT2 RS having reportedly lapped the Green Hell in 6:48.75.

While we are far from having received any official confirmation on the matter, it does seem like the rear-engined monster packs the potential to deliver such a chronograph number.

For one thing, we have to keep in mind that the $300,000 GT2 RS costs about twice as much as the 991.2 GT3, with the latter incarnation of the rear-engined coupe being able to complete the Nordschleife task in 7:12.7.

So, if you happen to wake up to an announcement on Porsche having grabbed Lamborghini Ring record one these days, you shouldn't be surprised. Meanwhile, however, the Huracan Performante, with its 6:52 lap time, remains the king of the Nurburgring.
