You can’t buy it anyway, because it’s sold out!

Expected to make a comeback after five years, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS returned to the market at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It took an unofficial unveiling at a tech show and numerous reports about its performance, but it’s finally here. And as it usually happens, the official launch came with a new online configurator. Sure, I could argue that the limited-edition GT2 RS is already sold out and the configurator is pretty much useless now, but we can at least have some fun with it.

Options are very similar to the 911 GT3, meaning you can customize a lot of features, both inside and out. You can also add performance-enhancing parts, as well as opt for Porsche’s already iconic Delivery Experience program, which delivers the car to Atlanta in the U.S. and Zuffenhausen or Leipzig in Germany. So whether you’ve already ordered your GT2 RS or you just want to build the dream car you can’t afford, let’s have a closer look at the features.

The GT2 RS comes with eight options in this department

Much like any configurator out there, you start off by picking the exterior color. The GT2 RS comes with eight options in this department. There are four standard colors, Black, White, Guards Red, and Racing Yellow offered at no cost, and four special colors, GT Silver Metallic, Chalk, Lava Orange, and Miami Blue, priced at $4,220. Once you’re done with that, you can opt between the standard double-five-spoke wheels or the optional, magnesium ones. Both are free of charge. However, selecting the Satin Aluminum finish will set you back $330, while the Satin Platinum and Satin Black coatings cost $690 each.

Moving over to options, model designation delete and LED headlamps with PDLS are free of charge. For $300, you can get headlamp cleaning system covers in body color of "deviated" color, and $170 will get you door handles in high-gloss black. There’s also SportDesign mirrors in black as well as window triangle trim in carbon fiber for $360 and $730, respectively. Finally, the Weissach Package, which adds carbon-fiber front lid, roof, and rear wing, costs a whopping $31,000.

The standard seats are the Adaptive Sport units with 18-way adjustability

Inside, you get to choose between a standard interior with black and red Alcantara or a full leather interior with Alcantara seats in black with either gray or red stitching. Finally, you can also opt for leather seats, also with red stitching. All but the standard upholstery is priced at $3,480. The standard seats are the Adaptive Sport units with 18-way adjustability, but you can get the full bucket seats as a no-cost option.

Interior options are numerous and include auto-dimming mirrors with rain sensors, black leather steering wheel, A/C delete, smoking package, painted air vents and climate control panel, leather key pouch, instrument dials in red or white, and seat belts in three colors. If you’re a fan of leather, you can dress the dashboard, steering column, and center tunnel in this material, as well as order floor mats with leather edging. The sun visors, door trim, storage compartment lid, and belt outlet can be wrapped in Alcantara.

Carbon fiber and aluminum are offered too, including floor mats, door sill guards, pedals, and footrest. Finally, you can opt for a Bose surround sound system for $1,600. If you already selected the Weissach package, you also get carbon fiber steering wheel trim and paddles, a plaque on the cup holder cover, and embroidered headrests, all with the "Weissach" logo.

Drivetrain

Moving over to performance, there’s a front-axle lift system at $3,490, a Sport Chrono package with Lap Trigger at $550, and the Extended Range fuel tank at $140. The Weissach package adds anti-roll bars and end links.

How Much Does it Cost?

Go wild with the options and you will pay in excess of $350,000

The 911 GT2 RS starts from $293,200, which is pretty expensive. However, the sticker can increase significantly as you add options. I went with the Weissach Package and a couple of not-so-expensive options, as I wanted a more track-ready car, and ended up with a final price of $338,440. But go wild with the options and you will pay in excess of $350,000. Actually, given that this car is already sold out, you can expect to pay more than $500,000 for one on the "used" car market.
