Porsche 911 GT2 RS sold out
If you wanted a Porsche GT2 RS for Christmas then, we’re sorry guys, but we have some bad news for you. Porsche has just announced that the most powerful and high-performance road-going sports car in their history has sold out, despite the car’s $250K pricetag.
News of the 500 units already being scooped up shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody. The GT2 RS is more powerful and lighter compared to a standard GT2 because of the 154lb decrease in weight and the extra 90hp getting squeezed out of the engine. Anyone with a certain degree of infatuation over a 0-62mph sprint made in 3.5 seconds, a top speed of 205mph, and a Nurburgring time of seven minutes and 18 seconds was sure to be one of the first people in line with their cash or check in hand, and there seems to be at least 500 people with this type of passion.
Press release after the jump.
The most powerful and high-performance road-going sports car in the history of the Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is not only fast on the road: all 500 units of the limited edition 911 GT2 RS were sold to customers within an extremely short amount of time. Presented at the Moscow Auto Salon on August 25th, this top model emphasizes the success story of the 911.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS embodies what Porsche Intelligent Performance stands for. Despite the fact that its power has been enhanced by 90 HP, its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have actually been reduced by about 5 percent compared to the 911 GT2, bringing them down to 11.9 l/100 km (NEDC) and 284 g/km, respectively. The highly-efficient, 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry (VTG), offers 620 HP and accelerates the high-performance sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.
