As if the the 911 GT2 RS introduced by Porsche in 2010 (which at the time was the most powerful 911 ever made) wasn’t enough, the German automaker managed to improved upon it with the introduction of the next generation GT2 RS in 2011. Porsche made significant changes to the car when it comes to performance and weight. They trimmed the GT2’s 3,175-pound curb weight by a further 154 pounds by replacing various steel components with carbon fiber. They also used a 3.6 litre six-cylinder boxer engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry exclusive to Porsche in its combination with a gasoline engine drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox that boosted its total output to 620 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
This 2011 Porsche 997.2 GT2 RS featured here is currently available for auction on PCarMarket and is quite exceptional thanks to its iconic GT Silver Metallic finish over a black/red leather and Alcantara interior. One of the 500 GT2 RS models built, this one rides on factory 19” GT2 RS center-lock wheels in an optional silver-painted finish.
Additional options include GT2-specific bumpers and a rear wing as well as an exposed carbon fiber hood and carbon fiber trim on the mirrors, air intakes, and rear diffuser. This example rides on factory 19” GT2 RS center-lock wheels.
The interior is upholstered in black leather with carbon fiber accents and red Alcantara trim lining the seat centers, armrests, shifter, handbrake, and steering wheel. Unique details include lightweight red door pulls, red seatbelts, and carbon fiber “RS” logo door sill guards. There’s also an exclusive Sports Look footrest that was selected by its original owner as a factory optional as well as Sound Package Plus, a Bluetooth phone interface, Universal Audio Interface, automatically dimming mirrors with an integrated rain sensor, and Sport Chrono Package without Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
This GT2 RS is also one of the last Porsche car’s to be equipped with the legendary Mezger engine. The twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter flat-six in the GT2 RS produces up to 620 HP and drives the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Thanks to it, the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in approximately 3.5 seconds with a top speed of over 200 mph.
When it was unveiled in 2011, the GT2 RS was the most powerful street-legal production care made by Porsche. But even after a decade it was first introduced, the 997 GT2 RS is not for the faint of heart. But it will certainly offer an out-of-this-world driving experience for its new owner who’s daring enough to get behind its wheels! Featuring just over 7,100 kilometers or 4,400 miles on the odometer, this rare GT2 RS is ready to be driven and enjoyed!
