Used Porsche GT2 RS For Sale
If you are reading this, you probably know that a majority of our subscribers either own or have owned a Porsche 911. In order for the factory to race on the world stage, every sanctioning body requires a few production versions of the race car be sold to the public. This is the story behind the Porsche GT2 RS.
Turbo technology was improving by leaps and bounds in the mid-90s. It was becoming clear that Porsche could build a 911 twin turbo without the reputation of the “widowmaker”. For the 993 GT2, only 57 examples were built to homologate the series. The air-cooled 3.6 liter made 444 horsepower and 432 lb-ft of torque.
It took a few years to work out the kinks in water cooling and emissions, so we didn't see another GT2 until 2007. The first GT2 RS was announced in 2010, and it used large turbos and clever engineering to make 612 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Only 131 cars were sold in the US and 10 in Canada. The reason for low sales is that it lacked most creature comforts.
The GT2 RS does away with sound and heat insulation, along with all non-essential systems. This is how it shed 150 lbs when compared to the normal GT2. It was known internally as project 727, in reference to the ‘Ring lap record of the Nissan GT-R. Examples of the first generation of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS for sale have brought record numbers from collectors and dealers. That is because they will dominate almost everything on the track or street.
We learned about the 2nd Generation 2018 Porsche GT2 RS early in 2017. It is based on the 991.2 generation Porsche 911 and uses a twin turbo 3.8 liter flat-six. With a strong home field advantage, the Porsche GT2 RS Nurburgring lap time proved it to be the fastest production car. In 2010, the goal was 7:27, and in only 6 years, the new record stands at 6:47.3. If you are looking for the fastest car on the market, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS price starts at $239,200.
The 2018 version will remain the cutting edge for years to come, but the 2011 examples are just as potent. Our dealers are ready to help you, so give them a call and get ready for Renn Sport!
2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS
All the beauty of a Porsche, paired with wheel-rear drive, the 2019 911 GT2 RS is the most robust 911 model the brand has ever manufactured. Crafted with lightweight materials like magnesium and carbon, the chassis aids in aerodynamic performance without sacrificing the sleek, muscular exterior associated with the signature Porsche style. Along with a reduced weight, the 911 GT2 RS comes along with an upgraded engine, improved suspension, and bigger brakes. Each of these components plays a key role in the unrivaled power and performance of the latest 911 GT2. The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine produces a staggering horsepower output of 700 with 553 lb-ft of raw torque. The top speed of 211 MPH is one of the fastest for the automaker, while the impressively fast 0 to 60 acceleration speed comes in at only 2.7 seconds. It is to note that a Porsche is simply not a Porsche without an interior fit for a King or a Queen. The 911 GT2, while focused on high-performance, does not stray from the brand’s mission of extravagance. Inside, drivers and passengers alike are greeted with ergonomic seats that are veiled in black leather and red Alcantara. The remainder of the interior features a carbon-weave finish along with a sporty steering wheel, cutting-edge sound system, a 4.6-inch color display screen and a host of other technologies that improve the level of comfort and safety inside of the cockpit.
