Bad news for the prospective buyers of the upcoming 911 GT2 RS, as Porsche has reportedly already sold the entire production run. The new king of the 911 range was always going to be offered in limited numbers, but so far we didn’t know exactly how many of them would hit the roads. Auto Bild reports that the new GT2 RS will be produced in 1,000 examples, all of which are already spoken for.
Porsche traditionally reserved the GT2 RS moniker for the big daddy of each generation of the 911. The recipe is simple enough: take a 911 Turbo, give it more power, an extreme aero agenda and the most hardcore of chassis components and, as a final touch, revert it back to rear-wheel drive to get the adrenaline flowing.
The new 911 GT2 RS has already made an unexpected public debut during the Forza Motosport 7 event, revealing for the first time its final production silhouette. No information was given about what’s hiding underneath its race-car bodywork, but according to the latest reports, Porsche is going to honor the Widowmaker nickname with some serious numbers.
The twin-turbo 3.8-litre flat-six engine will make 700PS (690hp) and 553 lb-ft (750Nm) of peak torque and is mated exclusively to a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. The 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) sprint will take only 2.9 seconds, with the top speed set at 212mph (340km/h).
The first cars will be delivered this autumn and prices start at around €260,000 in Germany ($289k in current exchange rates).
