With Porsche delivering fresh 911 models in rapid succession (the 992 might be out, but the 991.2 generation has yet to deliver its final derivative, namely the Speedster), it can be easy to let the already-here cars slip away from the headlines. However, there are always units that help us prevent this, as is the case with the 911 GT2 RS that brought us here.
This 700 horsepower monster is dressed in Gulf Blue, which his the kind of Paint To Sample shade that makes the aero-aggressive lines of the 2RS stand out even more.

Note that the Rennsport Neunelfer packs a monstrously gifted configuration, as, for instance, it comes with the Weissach Package and the uber-light magnesium wheels, with the latter using a satin black finish.

However, the cabin of the Porscha is the one that sets it apart. You see, the machine comes with the full bucket seats, which feature houndstooth inserts. However, the owner has dipped into the realm of CCX option, so the center console also features the famous black-and-white pattern.

While we're talking about the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, we'll remind you that the German automotive producer released the track-only version of the machine last week.

We're referring to the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport. We had spied the circuit-only incarnation of the 2RS, so we knew we could expect monster aero, the kind that can almost make the rear wing of the street car seem normal.

The German engineers delivered on multiple fronts, as, for instance, the racecar is a full 150 kg lighter than the model you can find in a showroom.

Interestingly, the 700 horsepower output of the road car has been maintained, as it has been the case with the uber-limited 935, which is also based on the GT2 RS - while Porsche is only building 200 units of the 2RS Clubsport, only 77 examples of the 935 are being brought to the world.


Reader Deliveries: Congratulations to @polarpeterl on taking delivery of his brand new PTS Gulf Blue (gulfblau; non-metallic UNI; 328) 991 GT2 RS from @paulmillerporsche in Parsippany, New Jersey. This example sports the Weissach Package, magnesium wheels in satin black, LED headlights, and full bucket seats (with CXX houndstooth inserts). Gulf Blue has become one of the most popular and highly recognized PTS choices for modern Porsches, and this particular 2RS wears the historic color very well. Keen eyed readers may note the matching houndstooth trim on the center console storage lid - one of the relatively newer CXX options I have learned of. Many thanks to @paulmillerporsche for the photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
