LA LIVE: Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsportby Justin King
The track-only car will be limited to 200 units, each fetching nearly a half million dollars.
Porsche has revealed the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport, a limited-edition racing version of the street-legal GT2 RS.
Based on the outgoing 991 series, the single-seat race car is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat six as the street car. It delivers 700 horsepower via a paddle-shifted dual-clutch transmission.
The interior has been whittled down to a single seat with a six-point harness and necessary safety cage. Despite its light 3,064-pound weight, the Clubsport retains air conditioning to keep the interior cool on the track.
"For the upcoming years, our customers will not only race the GT2 RS Clubsport during open track days but also at international motor racing events," says Porsche motorsport VP Frank-Steffen Walliser. "We are currently holding very productive talks with the race organizer SRO."
Only 200 examples will be manufactured, each priced at $478,000 with deliveries scheduled to begin in May.
