Porsche 911 GT2 RS for sale RHD and LHD
The Porsche 911 GT2 was a high performance sports car built by the German manufacturer Porsche from 1993 to 2012. It was based on the 911 Turbo, and uses a similar twin-turbocharged engine, but features numerous upgrades, including engine upgrades, larger brakes, and stiffer suspension calibration. The GT2 is significantly lighter than the Turbo due to its use of rear-wheel drive instead of all-wheel drive, and the lightening or removal of interior components. As a result, the GT2 was the most expensive and the highest trim level within the 911 lineup.
The 993-generation GT2 was initially built in order to meet homologation requirements for motorsports. Because the cars were built to meet the GT2 class regulations, the road cars were named accordingly. The 993 GT2 featured widened plastic fenders and a larger rear wing with air scoops in the struts. The 993 GT2’s original 3.6 L (220 cu in) engine developed 316 kW (430 PS); in 1998 it was upgraded to 331 kW (450 PS). Fifty-seven road cars were built (seven of which were right-hand drive).

The RS version of the GT2 was announced to German dealers in Leipzig on 4th May 2010, Developing 612 hp and 516 lb·ft of torque, it weighs 70 kg (150 lb) less than the standard GT2, allowing for a top speed of 205 mph and 0–100 km/h 0-62 mph acceleration of 3.4 seconds.
According to Porsche Motorsports manager Andreas Preuninger, the RS was conceived around 2007 as a skunk-works effort. The 727 code number selected for the project corresponds to one of the Nissan GT-R’s lap times around the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife. When the dust settled, Porsche claimed that test driver Timo Kluck had supposedly eclipsed that target by an impressive nine seconds
Autocar describe the GT2 RS as “Legalised insanity from those wacky folk in Porsche’s Motorsport department or, to put it another way, the maddest production car ever to wear the shield of Stuttgart on its nose. And, no, we haven’t forgotten the Carrera GT. The GT2 RS is a smidge lighter, a touch more powerful and a vast amount more torquey even than Porsche’s street-spec Le Mans car of 2003.
