Porsche 911 GT2 RS donut attempt goes badly wrong!

The most powerful road-going 911 ever made flops at Goodwood
July 03, 2017

There’s nothing quite as silly or satisfying as doing a good old donut in front of hundreds of people. It gives you a sense of elation and to some extent achievement - even though it’ll likely be short lived if the police happens to be close by and catches you in the act. It isn’t something we would advise anyone to do - but if you’re at the race track, you have the freedom to behave a little senseless and burnouts and donuts are likely going to be the order of the day. But, trying to do the latter in the new 911 GT2 RS - the most powerful and quickest road-going 911 ever made - will prove far harder than you might have thought…

The hotly anticipated Porsche made it world debut last weekend at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed and it sure got the crowd going as it stormed off the line and roared up the hill - but it was left a little red faced in the process. Thankfully, it did not crash, but when the driver attempted to excite the enthusiasts that had gathered in their droves by giving them a little smoke show and slide the Porsche around, it appears the traction control kicked in and stopped the rear-wheel-drive 700bhp supercar from displaying any sort of shenanigans. His donut attempt failed miserably and instead, he turned the car around in a far more subdued manner than he had originally planned and continued up the hill. It was all rather embarrassing if we're being honest and if you want to see for yourself, check out the video; it’s at 23 seconds in where you’ll start to cringe!
