Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport is a limited edition 700 horsepower racetrack-only beast

Porsche finally revealed the next-generation 911 a few days back at the LA Auto Show, but the outgoing model is not dead just yet. The German automaker has announced its track-only racing car which is based on the road-going 991-generation 911 GT2 RS. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport will be created in a limited run of 200 units and available at a base MSRP of $478,000. That’s nearly $200,000 more than the standard GT2 RS, which starts at $293,000. It retains the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat six from the street version that churns out 700 horsepower. The power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Inside the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport, the cabin is barebones and is purely functional focusing on the task of racing on tack. The steering wheel and display behind it are from the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R race car, while it features a typical race car roll cage, bucket seat and six-point harness to make it race-worthy. Porsche says the car has a dedicated switch that can turn off all assistance systems like Porsche’s stability management, traction control and ABS, on the fly. However, the cabin does feature an air conditioning system to keep the gentleman racer cool on the track. The 200 lucky owners of the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport will be able to run during clubsport events, Porsche Club of America track days and certain motorsport meets.
