The following weekend is going to be a busy one for Porsche, who will take the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport and 935 to the 24 Hours of Spa, unleashing them in a 30-minute race.
Behindthe wheel of the GT2s will be FIA-WEC drivers Christian Ried and Egidio Perfetti, James Sofronas, who raced in the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge America, Creventic 24 Hour Series drivers Steffen Gorig and Mark Ineichen, and six-time Olympic gold medalist in track cycling Chris Hoy.
“The Spa 24-hour race is the perfect stage for the race debut of these spectacular GT2 models”, said Porsche Motorsport’s VP, Fritz Enzinger. “Both vehicles can be fielded at Clubsport level and at selected motorsport events. We’re currently involved in fruitful discussions for the coming year.”
Limited to 200 units, the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport is the racing version of the street-legal GT2 RS. It was presented at Los Angeles last November and packs the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six making 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW), msted to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The car comes with many mechanical upgrades over its road-legal counterpart, including the brakes, suspension, a roll cage and bucket seat with six-point harness, and several CFRP parts.
With the production capped to 77 cars, the the 935 Clubsport is more exclusive. Its exterior design is reminiscent of the 935/78 Le Mans racer, which was dubbed the Moby Dick due to its white base color and elongated shape. Presented last fall, the 935 is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo, flat-six unit as the GT2 RS Clubsport and has an identical output.
