The debut of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS took place during the 997 generation in 2010 and received exceptional acclaim. In 2018, the 991-generation GT2 RS was introduced, surpassing its predecessor with an additional 80 horsepower and 37 pound-feet of torque. These enhancements enable the car to achieve an astonishing 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 2.8 seconds. The GT2 RS further showcases its impressive capabilities by covering the standing quarter mile in a mere 10.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 211 mph.
Powering the 991 GT2 RS lies a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine, delivering an astounding 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a seven-speed PDK twin-clutch transmission and a 3.96 differential equipped with electronically controlled limited-slip functionality. Porsche’s remarkable VarioCam system plays a crucial role in achieving these outstanding performance figures by optimizing timing in response to changes in engine speed.
To achieve weight savings, Porsche incorporated various carbon-fiber components in the GT2 RS program, including the hood, front fender vents, side intakes, side mirrors, and rear wing. The Weissach Package further reduces weight through the use of carbon fiber for the roof panel and anti-roll bars. Improved downforce is achieved with a large rear wing, underbody diffuser, and a more aerodynamic front fascia. Brake cooling is aided by NACA ducts in the front trunk lid.
This specific GT2 RS currently up for sale on Bring A Trailer is finished in white and features black leather and Alcantara upholstery. It is equipped with the $18k Weissach Package, the Sport Chrono Package, 20″ and 21″ magnesium center-lock wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow calipers, a front-axle lift system, rear-axle steering, LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), a rear wing, Porsche Communication Management, navigation, automatic climate control, carbon-fiber full bucket seats, a CD stereo, a Bose sound system, carbon-fiber interior trim, and cruise control.
