So, Porsche has finally released the long-awaited racing version of the 911 GT2 RS road car, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport.
The 690hp racing version of the car is limited to 200 units and can be entered into club motorsport events as well as at 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 racing car 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. Power from the motor is transferred via a rigidly mounted seven-speed Porsche dual-clutch gearbox (PDK) to the 310 millimetre-wide rear wheels.
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. it also has air-conditioning as standard.
The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can be ordered now via Porsche Motorsport in Flacht, Weissach, Germany. It is priced from €405,000 plus VAT. Customers will receive their vehicles from May 2019 at exclusive delivery events.
