Limited edition 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is now totally sold out

Article by Christian A., on June 23, 2017

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS that made its debut not so long ago at the E3 video game expo in Los Angeles has already been sold out according to reports. That’s surprisingly quick and highly impressive for the 700-horsepower (521 kilowatts) sports car. It sold so fast that you probably didn’t even have enough time to consider it.

AutoBild says that Porsche’s plan is to produce 1,000 units of the 911 GT2 RS, and that every single one of them had already been accounted for. The company did mention that some of those examples will be reserved for 918 owners, as they get priority access to this model. Apparently, the 911 GT2 RS has a starting price of €260,000 or €289,000 in Europe. Deliveries will begin by fall this year. However, the company has not confirmed any of these details shared to us yet.

To make a more aggressive vehicle, the sports car has been provided with an aero package that is noticeable in the front and rear fascia - with a wide body kit as well as a massive rear wing. Throughout the inside the cabin, you’ll find carbon fiber trimmings, and to keep the weight down, a set of lightweight wheels has been put in.

Under the hood of the hardcore Porsche is a 3.8 liter biturbo engine, which is also what powers the Turbo S. The powerhouse is able to produce 700 horsepower (521 kilowatts), which gives it the ability to run to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in only 2.9 seconds. It can go on to reach a top speed of 212 miles per hour (341 kilometers per hour).

The performance of the limited edition 911 GT2 RS, without a doubt, is at hypercar levels. A 700 horsepower car is no joke at any weight, considering that the model weighs approximately 3,300 pounds (1,500 kilograms).

So for those who did not get a chance to order one, you have no choice but to find a reseller out there, who will likely sell it to you for almost double the price.

But if that doesn’t appeal to you, you could still get your hands on one (albeit virtually) as the 911 GT2 RS will be part of the upcoming Forza Motorsport 7 video game, which will be released later this year. This will actually be the first time Porsche has made its cars available to games outside the Electronic Arts studio. Though the 911 GT2 RS is only limited to a thousand lucky people, thousands or maybe even millions more can get behind the wheel of one in the virtual world. This way, you save a ton of money too.
