The all-new 991 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is set for a debut at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed on Saturday.

Although the Porsche 911 GT2 RS actually “debuted” earlier this month during the Microsoft Xbox press conference at E3 2017, the German automaker hasn’t officially released details on its newest supercar. That could finally change at Goodwood this weekend, where Porsche has a car under cover at its booth. Professional Porsche driver Leh Keen ( @lehmank on Instagram) posted the above photo and there’s a sign saying “The next chapter begins. 01.07.2017.”
