Porsche just unveiled the latest edition of its 911 sportscar. You can read about the new model by clicking here. The new series is dubbed 992, but the company has given the outgoing 991 range one final hurrah; it’s called the Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport.
If you have the need to absolutely obliterate the chaps at your local track, then this is the toy for you. The Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport is a race-ready version of the already bonkers GT2 RS.
The GT2 RS Clubsport is powered by the same 515 kW, 3,8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six as the road car. Power from the rear-mounted engine is transferred via a rigidly mounted seven-speed Porsche dual-clutch gearbox (PDK) to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential. Gear selection is via shift paddles on the steering wheel. Thanks extensive use of lightweight materials the GT2 RS Clubsport tips the scales at just 1 390 kg, or lighter than your average hot hatch.
Six-piston aluminium monobloc racing calipers are employed the front wheels and act on ventilated and grooved steel brake discs with a 390 mm diameter. The rear axle is fitted with four-piston calipers and 380 mm discs. The 18-inch alloys measure 10,5 inches wide at the front and 12,5 at the rear
The removable carbon steering wheel and the digital colour display behind it have been borrowed from the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R model. The screen has full engine info as well as telemetry and a lap timer. A massive roll cage combined with a Recaro racing bucket seat and a six-point safety harness ensure maximum safety. Unlike most racecars the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport features air conditioning for driver comfort.
This track special is limited to 200 units and customers will receive their vehicles from May 2019.
In his own words
“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.
