It's a classic Catch-22 situation: To really pull off a bank job, we'd need a getaway car as fast and nimble as this 2011 Porsche GT2 RS, but to afford a GT2 RS, we'd have to pull off a really big bank job. Yes, this is a lighter (by 154 pounds, now weighing 3,020 pounds at the curb) and even more fuel-efficient (by five percent) version of the splendiferous 911 GT2. It's currently the fastest and most powerful roadgoing Porsche, with 620 hp springing from its 3.6-liter, twin-turbo flat six. On a set of bespoke tires, it can rush from zero to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and top out at 205 mph. Carbon ceramic brakes will stop it on the proverbial dime. Talking of money, the GT2 RS will sell for $245,000 apiece and only 500 will be built. One more thing: It laps the Nürburgring in an impressive seven minutes and 18 seconds. See you outside that old bank on Sixth Avenue at midnight; bring a big drill.
