The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is Porsche’s idea of the best thing money can buy, while still being legal. This car has won many records around the world renown race track, the Nürburgring. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS has a powerful twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 691hp with a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 205Mph. This car is pretty much the most powerful Porsche ever produced, and it comes with a hefty price of $290,220 before options. The car’s optional features are what stand out most and should be pointed out, so I will.
The Optional Features:
The emblem: This is not a feature, and is included in the car, but it is worth mentioning. In an effort to make this car as lightweight as possible, they eliminated the use of a real head ornament. To avoid the unnecessary weight of a metal ornament, Porsche decided to just put an engraved sticker onto your hood. By doing this, Porsche saved 0.4oz. Now that may not seem like a lot of weight, but when your versuing Nürburgring champions, like Ferrari and Lamborghini, every ounce matters to make the car as fast as possible.
The backup camera: That’s Right! Your $290,220 car does not come with basic cameras. Porsche saw this as unnecessary, and along with the weight saving theme, they eliminated it. As a convenience to you, you will have to pay around $2,700 to install this, because it takes time and is something more that will need to be covered in carbon fiber.
The watches: The Porsche 911 GT2 RS does not come with a watch in the car, and the feature cost about $380 to get it installed, which isn’t that bad. Well, if you haven’t noticed the name of this section, it is plural meaning there is more than one watch option. The second option you have for this vehicle is a normal wristwatch. Everything about this watch is supposed to feel sporty and luxurious and will cost as much as most watches made by Rolex. The price for this especially signed off Porsche wristwatch is around $10,300.
The Weissach Pack: This pack comes with a carbon fiber roof, ultra light alloy wheels, special embroideries in the head rests, extra labeling throughout the car, carbon fiber anti roll bars, and the roll cage made out of titanium to help reduce extra weight all at an insanely high cost of about $27,300, making it the most expensive option available.
Although this car is breathtaking, it is somewhat of a disappointment because it lacks basic features like cruise control that will set you back another $500, while this comes standard in most other cars. Though if this is the only reason stopping you from buying one of these amazing cars, then you are clearly not seeing the point behind Porsche’s thinking. This car was by no means supposed to even be considered a luxury car and is solely focused on motor sports. If Porsche had not soared for that goal, then they would not have been able to beat the legendary Ferrari and Lamborghini teams around the Nürburgring.
