Near standard and spectacular – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport celebrated its world premiere at the 2018 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 club racing events as well as selected motorsport meets.

The technology of the car from Weissach is based on the high-performance 911 GT2 RS sports car. The clubsport racers shares the same engine as its 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.

Assistance systems: Driving pleasure and safety

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.

Air conditioning: Keeping a cool head on hot laps

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

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport was offered at a price from 405,000 Euros plus country-specific VAT. Customers receive their vehicles from May 2019 at exclusive delivery events.
