This Last-Gen Porsche 911 GT2 RS Has An Eye-Popping Price

For Sale

You could buy a brand new 997 GT2 RS for significantly less.

For $359,670, you can have a new Porsche 911 GT2 RS, aka the fastest and most powerful road-going 911 Porsche has ever built in its 86-year history. Alternatively, you could buy its predecessor, currently for sale at Dubai dealership Alain Class for the bargain price of $723,000. Which would you choose? For avid collectors, the answer will probably be the latter. Only 500 examples of the 997 911 GT2 RS were produced, potentially making it more exclusive than its successor which is rumored to be limited to 1,000 units.

When it first went on sale in 2010, the last-gen 911 GT2 RS had an MSRP of $245,000, so it’s effectively tripled its value. At the time, it was the fastest and most powerful road car Porsche had ever produced, boasting 612-horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque thanks to its biturbo 3.6-liter V6 engine. In comparison, the new model is powered by a biturbo 3.8-liter that produces 690-hp and 553 lb-ft. As for weight, the new GT2 RS tips the scales at 1,470 kg, while the old model is 100 kg lighter weighing in at 1,370 kg. It’s worth noting, however, that the difference between the two models is reduced by 40 kg if you install the new model's optional Weissach Package.

0-62 mph takes 3.5 seconds in the old model compared to the new model’s 2.9 second sprint time, before topping out at 205 mph. The new model, in comparison, can achieve a blistering top speed of 211 mph. This last-gen 911 GT2 RS listed for sale looks like it’s in pristine condition and only has 746 miles on the clock, which, combined with its rarity, probably explains its eye-popping price. Rumor has it that the new 911 GT2 RS has already sold out, so this could be your next best option if you have money to burn.
