Up until now, one of the most powerful engines that Porsche has ever used in a car was in the 2011 Porsche GT2 RS. At the time, this car used to come with a turbocharged engine that was able to produce 620 of horsepower. It also came with a 6-speed manual transmission and the only option that you had was rear-wheel drive only.

However, time passes and it got to a point where the engine needed to be improved (!). So, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS will now feature a 3.8-liter boxer 6-cylinder engine that the Turbo S is already using. However, Porsche boosted this same engine and it will be capable of producing up to 700 of horsepower and 553 pounds per feet of torque.
