As an automotive enthusiast, you have probably seen your fair share of odd matches and vehicle comparisons. An oddity that tends to show up every once in a while, is the comparison against the infamous Nissan Juke R. The Nissan Juke R is Nissan’s 4,000-pound Frankenstein creation berthed from the GT-R’s drivetrain and force-fed V6 engine. Car and Driver is the latest outlet to pit the Juke R against a red-hot item. This time that item is the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

With the 911 GT2 RS being the most powerful road-going Porsche ever built, you would think that it demolishes the Juke R from the get-go. However, you must consider how the Juke R has so far trumped king over many exotics mainly due to its remarkable GT-R-sourced drivetrain and twin-turbo V6. Hit up the Car and Driver video below of Jethro Bovingdon to see if the Juke R’s hype is enough to take down the all-mighty Porsche.

I am always down for good old fashion drag race especially when the contestants include a selection of new exotic cars. The guys at Autocar get their hands on a new Benz SLS AMG, Porsche GT2 RS and a Lamborghini Aventador all at the same time. What do they do with these three beastly cars? They do what many of you reading this would do; take them to an open runway (or drag strip) to find out which one is the fastest. Sure, anyone can look up the stats of these three cars and see what they will do on paper. But what is the fun in that? Hit up the video below to find out which car leads the pack.



Pike’s Peak Record Setting Porsche GT2 RS For Sale 12

Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Jeff Zwart, Kurt, Pike's Peak Hill Climb, porsche, Porsche GT2 RS, video on 07 12th, 2011

For sale: Guards Red 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS with just 4,062 mostly-highway miles. Used for weekend drives by mature owner. Includes tasteful modifications, such as an upgraded roll cage, OMP steering wheel and the highly-desirable “passenger seat delete” option. Call today, because this baby won’t last long!

Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach, FL is selling Jeff Zwart’s record-breaking Pike’s Peak 911 GT2 RS. There’s no price listed on the Champion Porsche website, but the cheapest 911 GT2 RS that I saw had an “internet price” of $299,900, which is more than the car cost new. Since the Pike’s Peak GT2 RS is “historically significant”, you can bet that putting it in your garage will cost substantially more money than that. Whatever the asking price is, you’ve got this in your favor: Porsche built a limited number of 911 GT2 RS cars to begin with, and only one set a new record on Pike’s Peak. Depending upon the asking price, there’s a good chance that Zwart’s GT2 RS will appreciate in value over time. Besides, your stock portfolio won’t top 200 miles per hour.

See Zwart’s GT2 RS in action in the video below.
