Clubsport GT2RS Confirmed

By George Woodward 28/11/2018

700 hp 911 GT2RS unveiled at Los Angeles Auto Show.

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport today celebrated its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The 700 hp racing version of the road-going 911 GT2 RS sports car is limited to 200 units and can be run at club motor sport events as well as selected race meetings. 

“For the upcoming years, our customers will not only race the GT2 RS Clubsport on track days but also at international motor racing events. We are currently holding very productive talks with the race organiser SRO,” says Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars.

The technology of the race car from Weissach is based on the high-performance 911 GT2 RS sports car, just like in the 935, which Porsche unveiled nine weeks ago. Both share the same engine as their road-legal relative: a state-of-the-art 3.8-litre flat-six twin-turbo motor.

Power from the rear engine is transferred via a rigidly mounted seven-speed Porsche dual clutch gearbox (PDK) to the 310 millimetre-wide rear wheels. Like in all other racing versions of the 911, the driver changes gears via ergonomically-positioned shift paddles on the steering wheel.

Six-piston aluminium monobloc racing callipers on the front axle in combination with internally ventilated and grooved steel brake discs with a 390 millimetre diameter provide excellent deceleration values at the front axle. The rear axle is fitted with four-piston callipers and 380 millimetre discs. 

Like the 911 GT2 RS road car, the 1,390 kg Clubsport version is equipped with PSM (Porsche Stability Management) including traction control as well as an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Thanks to a map switch positioned on the centre console, these assistance systems can be adjusted separately or switched off completely, depending on the driving situation. 

The carbon steering wheel and the colour display behind it have been taken from the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R race car. A massive safety cage combined with a racing bucket seat and a six-point safety harness ensure maximum safety. Air conditioning provides optimal cooling of the interior. 

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can be ordered now via Porsche Motorsport in Flacht, Weissach, Germany. It is priced from 405,000 Euro plus VAT. Customers will receive their vehicles from May 2019 at exclusive delivery events.
