This Porsche Helmet Case Comes As a Gift With Your New 911 GT2 RS
Seriously now, this Porsche helmet case goes together with the 911 GT2 RS like summer and Juneby Tudor Rus, on
The current Porsche 911 GT2 RS is, for now, the most powerful street-legal Porsche ever built. That’s why you don’t buy one just to show off your ego between two traffic lights – so if you happen to be a customer, you are going to take it to the track. Which is something Porsche knows very well.
Porsche 911 GT2 RS Helmet Case
At launch, you could order your new 911 GT2 RS together with a special-issue watch released by Porsche Design, but it turns out Porsche had something on the side prepared for the future GT2 RS owner.
Case in point: this neatly designed helmet case is being offered as a gift to current owners and it has all the ingredients to turn out a highly-collectible item in the future. By the way, one such case is listed on eBay for $2,750.
Since our interest piqued, we did some more digging and found out it won the German Design Special Award in back in 2018. We also tried looking for it on Porsche’s online lifestyle shop and couldn’t find it – so we guess that adds even more weight to its exclusivity.
And as you’ll see in the unboxing video below, the helmet case borrows a lot of the design cues seen on the 911 GT2 RS, with the coolest and most obvious being the center lock that acts as a fastener of sorts.
Other neat details include the Porsche logo, side air vents and the handle – which is shaped just like the 911 GT2 RS’ rear wing.
Wait for it, there’s more fancy stuff.
The wicked bottom area that replicates the rear end (diffuser and exhaust pipes) of Porsche’s go-very-fast machine is a piece of pure art and if you take a step back and admire the whole item, you risk being tricked into thinking a full-size 911 GT2 RS is about to hatch out of that egg-shaped helmet carrier.
Which won’t happen, of course, so you’ll have to pay for the actual car first just to get the case. Bummer.
