The New Porsche 2018 911 GT2 RS: A Rare Jewel

Posted 12/25/17

Yeah, right about now our Porsche technicians wished they had majored in something other than Porsche repair in college, perhaps instead gone into something like Nigerian royalty or the diamond industry.

The new Porsche 2018 911 GT2 RS is going to cost a lot, about $290,000 at current exchange rates. Why so much for one car, even if it is a Porsche?

Simple. This new Porsche is supposed to be the most powerful 911 ever built.

Super Fast, Incredibly Rare

And even if our Porsche mechanics were Nigerian kings on the side who just happened to love fixing your Porsche as a hobby, they’d also have to be super lucky. There are only 1,000 of the new Porsches made, and they’ve long since sold out.

Aside from its rarity and jaw dropping price tag, what’s the big deal? About 700 teeth in your stomach gripping horsepower. As Motor Authority explains:

“Bigger turbos, tougher internals, a lightweight titanium exhaust system, and a water-injection system are all present to help achieve big numbers.

“Power is sent through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission and delivered to the rear wheels only. Additionally, beefed up aerodynamics compliment the insane horsepower figure. New intakes, mirror caps, hood ducts, and a giant wing aid in the 911 GT2 RS’s mission for sports car supremacy.”

So yeah, we’ll take three, when they’re finally available. Just put it on our tab. We swear we’re good for it.

Do You Need a Radiator Flush?

Should you flush your radiator? Most mechanics recommend doing it every 40,000 to 60,000 miles. It will help prevent your car from overheating and maintain a more efficient system. The process removes the original radiator fluid and replaces it with a new solution of antifreeze mixed with water. That mixture is then circulated through the system to dissolve and remove any solids and contaminants in your radiator. When the cycle is complete, that mixture is then removed and replaced with fresh. It’s a good thing to put on your to-do list, especially if you live in a climate that has harsh winters.
