PORSCHE 911 (977) GT2RS

This is Car No.198 out of 500




HISTORY

The Porsche 911 GT2 is a sport car built by the German manufacturer Porsche since 1994. It is based on the 911 turbo, and uses a similar twin turbo engine, but features numerous upgrades, including engine upgrades, larger brakes, and stiffer suspension calibration. The GT2 is significantly lighter than the Turbo due to its use of rear wheel drive instead of all-wheel drive, and the lightening or removal of interior components.

The new 911GT2RS is one the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built in the history of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart. With power up by 90 bhp and weight down by 70 kilograms in comparison with the 911 GT2, the new 911 GT2 RS has a power to weight ratio of just 2.21 kilos per horsepower, by far the best power to weight ratio in its class. Obviously, these are the ideal ingredients for an ultra-high performance sports car with supreme agility, truly blistering performance on the road, and of course exemplary Porsche Intelligent Performance.

The 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. Developed especially for the 911 GT2 RS, sports tyres measuring 325/30 ZR 19 convert this massive power into equally massive performance and acceleration on the road: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h in 28.9 seconds. Top speed is 330 km/h.

Equally supreme stopping power on this ultra-high performance sports car comes from composite ceramic brakes. Appropriate longitudinal and crosswise dynamics are ensured by the sporting RS set-up of the springs, Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management, anti-roll bars, as well as the dynamic engine mounts and Porsche Stability Management.

In its looks the new 911 GT2 RS stands out clearly from the 911 GT2 above all through the lavish use of carbon fibre reinforced components in matt black surface finish, even wider wheels and flared wheel arches at the front, new 911 GT2 light-alloy wheels with central locking, as well as GT2 RS model designations on the doors and rear lid. The upgraded front spoiler lip and the rear spoiler lip made of carbon fibre are now 10 millimetres higher, again in surface carbon finish, ensure the right aerodynamic precision as well as extra downforce.

The interior also exudes the flair of sporting performance in virtually every detail, featuring lightweight bucket seats made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic in carbon surface finish and lightweight door panels with door opening straps. The basic interior colour is black, contrasting attractively with features such as the seat centre sections and the roof lining as well as segments on the steering wheel rim. The gearshift and handbrake lever are both finished in red alcantara.

Limited to just 500 units.
