The hybrid tech for the 992-gen 911 GT2 RS is said to be developed by Porsche Motorsport for the 919 Hybrid and 963 LMDh Le Man’s racers. It will use a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-6 engine paired with a mild-hybrid system. It will likely feature a gearbox-mounted electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack behind the seats.

Porsche is also developing a new variable-geometry turbocharger for the GT2 RS. It will be used to generate electric energy under acceleration. With a combined output of around 750 hp, the new 911 GT2 RS will be the most powerful road-going, Porsche.

Reports also suggest that the new GT2 RS weighs about 100 kg more than the GT3 RS. Porsche aims to achieve a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph.

Like its predecessor, the 992-gen 911 GT2 RS will be produced in limited numbers. It is expected to arrive in 2026 with a price tag of more than $300,000.
