For the 993 and 996 generations of Porsche’s 911, the GT2 was the highest-performance iteration of the fabled sports car made available for road use. Originally built in order to meet homologation regulations for GT2-class motorsports, the aptly named GT2 took the 911’s performance one step further than the already manic Turbo, making for an invigorating and uncompromising performance machine.
Following the success of the new 996 and 997 GT3 RS models and looking to silence critics in support of the new Nissan GT-R, Porsche developed a lightweight, skunk-works model of the GT2 in an effort to take back the Nürburgring record from Godzilla. Enter the 997 GT2 RS.
As if the ‘standard’ GT2 didn’t provide enough performance, Porsche figured that it could extract a little bit more performance from what was the most powerful road-going 911 to date. To achieve this, Porsche took a back-to-basics approach by adding power while shedding weight. One hundred and fifty-four pounds of weight was shed through fitting a single-mass flywheel, carbon-fiber hood, replacing various steel components with aluminum, fitting single-lug wheels, and even shedding nine pounds through fitting thinner carpeting. Through an increase of 2.9 psi of boost to the turbochargers, Porsche’s engineers were able to add 90 horsepower to its 3.6-liter engine, bringing total output to 620 horsepower. This made the GT2 RS the most powerful 911 ever produced upon its unveiling.
Of the 500 GT2 RSs produced, just over 20 percent of those were destined for United States customers, and this is one such example. This extremely rare example was built in Guards Red with lightweight carbon-fiber bucket seats, Interior in Red/Black, Interior Carbon Pkg, Auto Dim Mirror, PCM with Navigation Module, Audio System Pgk, Sound Pkg plus, Bluetooth, Sport Chrono Pkg, XM Radio, Floor Mats in Interior color, Universal Audio Interface, Rear Center Console in Carbon, Belt Outlets in Carbon and Porsche Crest in Headrest. Having been lovingly maintained in the custodianship of just one owner from new, the car retains all of its original books and two sets of keys. It was just serviced and remains in outstanding showroom new condition throughout. One Owner from new with only 3,747 Miles from New!!
