Default GT2 RS Clubsport announcement (didn't hear of this last night)

World premiere in Los Angeles

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport with 700 hp

Stuttgart. Near standard and yet spectacular – the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport celebrated its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The 515 kW (700 hp) racing version of the road-legal 911 GT2 RS* sports car is limited to 200 units and can be run at clubsport events as well as selected motorsport meets. “For the upcoming years, our customers will not only race the GT2 RS Clubsport on track days but also at international motor racing events. We are currently holding very productive talks with the race organiser SRO,” says Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars.

The technology of the race car from Weissach is based on the high-performance 911 GT2 RS sports car, just like in the 935, which Porsche unveiled nine weeks ago. Both share the same engine as their road-legal relative: a state-of-the-art 3.8-litre flat-six twin-turbo motor. Power from the rear engine is transferred via a rigidly mounted seven-speed Porsche dual clutch gearbox (PDK) to the 310-millimetre-wide rear wheels. Like in all other racing versions of the 911, the driver changes gears via ergonomically positioned shift paddles on the steering wheel. The positioning of the engine behind the rear axle ensures excellent traction and braking performances. Six-piston aluminium monobloc racing callipers on the front axle in combination with internally ventilated and grooved steel brake discs with a 390-millimeter diameter provide excellent deceleration values at the front axle. The rear axle is fitted with four-piston callipers and 380-millimeter discs.

Like the road-legal 911 GT2 RS, the 1,390-kilogram Clubsport version is equipped with PSM (Porsche Stability Management) including traction control as well as an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Thanks to a so-called map switch positioned on the centre console, these assistance systems can be adjusted separately or switched off completely, depending on the driving situation.

The carbon steering wheel and the colour display behind it have been taken from the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R model. A massive safety cage combined with a racing bucket seat and a six-point safety harness ensure maximum safety. Air conditioning provides optimal cooling of the interior.

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can be ordered now from 405,000 Euro plus country-specific VAT. Customers will receive their vehicles from May 2019 at exclusive delivery events.

Here is a car that you could keep in your own garage and self support it at private track days.
You could also do some club racing with lower operating costs then a CUP and ship the car to Austraila or New Zealand for a tarmac rally just for fun!

Sexy car.

I suspect that with the limited production run, (200), chances are that less than 10% of these ever leave their climate controlled garage and of the 5% that do, less than 1% will actually see track time.

I think it is track only device, but I guess could still leave climate controlled garage. More likely to see a Track than 935 shown earlier at RR.

Cosworth isn't that bad vs Motec...complaints are over rated...but certainly motec would be easier all around.

certianly. But im sure every item on the clubsport is insanely expensive. Would cost a fortune to buy them for the street GT2RS

Nah. Sure it's fun and all but I'm done with Porsche dealer games. Much happier in my Cup: real race car; here's the number - same for everyone - write the check and you're done; no games.

Not that bad if you go out once or twice a year, but good luck trying to load your own formulas or finding someone to actually teach you how to use it. Motec is far more intuitive and Motec Joe is always available and bends over backwards to support the product.
