Forza Motorsport 7's new time of day and weather affects have also been showcased in the previews, with the Nurburgring routes being depicted in conditions that haven't before been showcased in a Forza Motorsport game.
As for the vehicle itself, technical specs were not released during the E3 presentation, but at least we do get to see its wild body looking like a 911 GT3 RS on steroids and a heavy dose of carbon fibre.
Unlike its step-cousin Forza Horizon 3, you can't just plonk yourself in a Porsche 911, push the accelerator down towards the Earth's crust and chase down the pack ahead through sheer force of will.
The new GT2 RS is the most powerful 911 ever built with over 650bhp horsepower and 750Nm of torque to play with. The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is rumoured to produce 640PS with the 3.8-liter flat six engine.
During Microsoft's E3 2017 conference the company showed off Forza Motorsport 7, the expected but not announced sequel to Turn 10's long-running series. It's been spotted numerous times at the Nürburgring undergoing high-speed testing, the most recent of which caught the vehicle on video.
Being a GT2 RS, you will pay-more-for-less inside the cabin in true Porsche fashion but you will not be complaining at all after you punch the about 640bhp motor to life.
The Porsche GT2 RS will employ larger turbos, more boost, a titanium exhaust, and a water-injection system. Count on official performance specs and details around then.
