Porsche Launches Club Sport Package For 911 GT2 RS

For the time being, the GT2 RS is the most extreme 911 entitled to wear license plates. But Porsche can do even better than that with the Club Sport Package, aimed at “those who are unyielding.”

Upgrades include an FIA-approved roll cage made out of steel, screwed into the body right behind the driver and passenger seats. The package also adds six-point seatbelt harness in red for the driver, fire extinguisher and bracket, and preparation for the battery master switch.

Porsche is much obliged to sell you that component separately from the motorsport department, along with the front cage bracket. Offered as a no-cost option to GT2 RS customers, the Club Sport Package can be combined with the Weissach Performance Package to unleash the full potential of the maddest 911 ever.

Opt for the go-faster package, and curb weight goes down by 30 kilograms (66 pounds) thanks to magnesium wheels and more carbon fiber than standard. It should be mentioned, however, that combining the two gets you the steel roll cage of the Club Sport, not the titanium roll cage of the Weissach.

Porsche hasn’t made any modifications to the suspension of the GT2 RS, which is encouraging if you take into consideration how hard the ride is on public roads. The powertrain also remains unchanged, combining the 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine with the seven-speed PDK transmission.

With 700 PS (690 horsepower) and 750 Nm (553 pound-feet) of torque on tap, the GT2 RS is both trackable and a supercar killer. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR took the Nurburgring lap record away from the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ with the help of Lars Kern, finishing the lap in 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

As it happens, the GT2 RS also happens to be the most expensive Porsche available to order right now, priced at $293,200 in the United States. Speccing up the car with the magnesium wheels adds $13,000 to the price while customers who want custom exterior paint need to spend $12,830 for this quirk.
