Think of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS as Ozzy Osbourne, and the 720S as Daft Punk. One's crazy and unhinged, and the other is a robot from the future that's probably also trying to attack you, just less crazily.

102 Octane is normal shit here in Europe. You can buy on any track and on a lot of fuel stations :-D

Newsflash. The handwritten notes of the head engineer on the Porsche GT2RS project have been leaked and are very "telling." For the Nordschleife record run, the car was run on 102 octane allowing the timing to be advanced some 6 degrees from stock. Also, the tires were shaved 50% prior to mounting for the run. Is this stuff cheating? Decide for yourself.

I think they are pretty much on the same level when it comes to racing-performance. Porsche is always very conservative with it's performance-declaration and the official numbers are obviously higher than the real ones. The GT2 RS has been tested in 2.7s on 0-100 kph / 0-62 mph and also the 0-200 and 0-300 kph times are better in reality. A professional comparison of both supercars would be amazing. Testing them on a circuit, on the road, their daily-driving abilities and everything in detail - like the steering, gearbox etc. - a huge test. The 991.2 GT2 RS and 720S are currently def. the most amazing supercars one level under the hypercar-segment with beasts like the 918 Spyder, P1 etc.

In my hands the 991 GT2 RS (WP) can win a race against a 720S !

As all criteria almost the same but the 720 s has mid engine and the Porsche has rear engine then i will say the 720 s will win
