Porsche has just announced the new 911 GT2 RS Clubsport Package, perfect for owners that plan on taking the marque’s most potent 911 to the track.
Launched in the wake of Manthey Racing’s 911 GT2 RS breaking the road-legal production car lap record at the Nurburgring, the no-cost Clubsport Package option will be available to those placing new orders on the hardcore 911.
The Clubsport Package includes an FIA approved rear steel roll cage that’s bolted to the bodywork of the supercar. Additionally, the Clubsport Package gains a 6-point harness finished in red, a fire extinguisher, and a battery master switch that’s been approved by the FIA.
While Porsche could have easily sold the Clubsport Package for a few thousand dollars, it’s decision to offer it free of charge exemplifies the company’s commitment to selling driver-focused vehicles at competitive prices.
The Clubsport Package doesn’t include any modifications to the engine. However, that’s no bad thing as the 911 GT2 RS is already powerful enough. As a matter of fact, its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine has been tuned to pump out 690 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. This engine is mated exclusively to a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the rear wheels and helps launch the GT2 RS to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and through to a 212 mph (340 km/h).
Beyond the engine, some of the vehicle’s performance secrets include rear-axle steering, a variable-locking differential, rose-jointed suspension, and bespoke aero parts.
Porsche hasn’t said if the Clubsport Package will be available for GT2 RS owners who have already taken delivery of their cars.
