During the YouTube Live coverage following Microsoft's E3 2017 press briefing, Forza Motorsport 7 Creative Director Bill Giese provided more information about the game. In the conference, the announcement of the game "Forza Motrosport 7" also highlighted the participation of Porsche models in the game.

Microsoft may be showing off the new Xbox One X today, the next-gen console formerly known as Project Scorpio, but it's sharing the limelight with Porsche. The new 911 was unveiled in its full metal body is an aggressive motorsport-inspired vehicle.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS will be the cover star of the upcoming Xbox One racing game revealed at the E3 gaming convention.

The GT2 RS will be powered by an uprated version of the standard 911 Turbo's 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, which is expected to produce in excess of 650bhp.

The last GT2 RS, which at the time Evo called "comedy fast" and "a challenge for drivers", appeared in 2010 and cost £164,000.

You can tell the new 911 GT2 RS is an extreme race auto for the road; the huge vents in the bumper, massive brake calipers and rear wing make sure of that.

The game will feature over 700 cars, with dynamic weather and road conditions, plus the developer says the game will be realistic to the point that cars rattle and vibrate. We even got to see the first look at the real-ass 2018 Porsche 911 GT2RS on the stage! Not that there's much sensible about that, if a recent run in the previous 997 GT2 RS at Knockhill was anything to go by. Porsche's head of GT cars has confirmed that a GT2 RS is on the way eventually.

However, we didn't see the vehicle.
