How would you spec your dream Porsche 911 GT2 RS?
Since its surprise reveal at E3, the new track-focused Porsche 911 GT2 RS has become one of the most talked-about cars of the year, and for good reason - it is, after all, the most powerful road-going 911 Porsche has ever built. Just don’t try doing donuts in one. Allegedly, all 1,000 examples have already been allocated, but we can still fantasize about owning one of these savage beasts because Porsche has uploaded a configurator allowing you to spec the GT2 RS of your wildest dreams.
The base model starts at $294,250, but that cost soon mounts up when you start exploring the wealth of optional extras. Ticking all the options, a top-spec Porsche 911 GT2 RS will set you back a whopping $359,670. The most expensive option is the $31,000 Weissach Package, which sheds a further 17 kg off the GT2 RS and adds a carbon fiber front lid, roof, rear wing, steering wheel trim, and gearshift paddles. You also get forged magnesium wheels and carbon-fiber anti-roll bars and end links. For $140, you can extend the fuel capacity to 90 liters. Mindful that most buyers will be using the GT2 RS to set blistering lap times, a $550 Sport Chrono package includes an analog stopwatch on the dashboard.
There's also a digital stopwatch on the instrument cluster and a lap trigger can be used to record lap times, which can then be analysed on your smartphone using an app. Then there’s the plethora of personalization options. A choice of eight exterior colors are available, but if you want to paint your GT2 RS in Metallic, Chalk, Lava Orange, or Miami Blue it will cost you an extra $4,220. Painting the wheels in Satin Aluminum will set you back $330, while both Satin Platinum and Black options cost $690 each. Interior options are as extensive as you would expect. As standard, the interior is a mix of Alcantara and leather in red and black.
Alternatively, you can opt for the $3,480 black and platinum grey package if that’s more to your liking. You can even paint the climate control panel and air vents at additional costs. Don’t blame us if you now spend several hours painstakingly designing your dream 911 GT2 RS.
