2011 Porsche GT2 RS Pikes Peak


On June 26, 2011, Jeff Zwart drove a Porsche GT2 RS right into a record setting time for street homologated sports cars at the famous Pikes Peak Race to the Clouds in Colorado. The last thing we would think Porsche would want to do is sell this same car only days after the event, but that is exactly what the company is doing. Talk about striking while the iron is hot.

The record setting GT2 RS was was only slightly modified for safety reasons, so it now includes a roll cage for maximum protection and a modified dashboard to display information needed during the race. The passenger seat was also removed. Other than that, the Porsche only received a bright red paint job along with a carbon fiber roof and racing stickers.

Under the hood of the GT2 RS Pikes Peak racer is the standard 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine found in the typical GT2 RS. This engine delivers a total of 620 HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 28.9 seconds. Top speed is 205 mph.

This special GT2 RS is currently on sale at Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach, Florida, who brag about being the #1 world’s largest Porsche dealership. This may be a unique opportunity for fans of Pikes Peak and Porsche fans alike to own a little piece of history. And as Champion Motorsport says: "From Pikes Peak to your garage or a track near you… definitely a nice perk I’d say."

It looks so impressive on its abstract design, well the black and red combination, is looking very perfect and lovely on this race car, and I’m also glad that it had a striking engine as well.

Nice sports car, I like the proportion of its design, exterior and balanced color combination. I like the door opened and its interesting engine system.

Who do you think is responsible on beating his own record? Is it the Porsche Gt2 or the driver, Jeff Zwart? Well, they also have a good idea on selling it few days after the race. The car is still hot for the buyers during that time.

well, this car really proves its power on the pikes peak race. And if I am not mistaken,
its driver, Jeff Zwart has beaten its own record from the last race.

As expected from Porsche,its newer model seems to be an impressive production. Its power output is incredible and it seems that its faster in terms of 0-60 mph.

Wow! This car looks great on its red paint job and racing stickers. I really love on how Porsche have perfectly showed the sportiness of this vehicle. Aside from that the speed performance of the car is good as well. I can’t wait to put my hands behind its steering wheel!
