Porsche GT2 RS Coming to Beverly Hills Porsche

Porsche announced North American allocations for the 2011 911 GT2 RS and Beverly Hills Porsche will be receiving a precious few cars this go-round. Los Angeles represents one of the largest markets for Porsche so it's no surprise we will be seeing multiple units delivered here. This limited production GT2 RS marks yet another important milestone in Porsche's determination to create and build the ultimate supercars.

From the official Porsche press release:

The time: seven minutes, 18 seconds on the Nürburgring-

The power: 620 hp.

The weight: 3,021 lb in road trim with all fluids on board.

The car: the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

The GT2 RS made its world debut at the Moscow Auto Show on August 25th. The future top GT model marking the absolute climax in the 911 range is the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built in the history of Porsche With power up by 90 hp and weight down by 154 lb in comparison with the 911 GT2, the new 911 GT2 RS has a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.9 lb per horsepower, by far the best power/weight ratio in its class. Obviously, these are the ideal ingredients for an ultra-high-performance sports car with supreme agility, truly blistering performance on the road, and of course exemplary Porsche Intelligent Performance. For despite this extra power and performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions versus the 911 GT2 are down by approximately 5% to 23.7 mpg and 284 g/km.

The 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry exclusive to Porsche in its combination with a gasoline engine drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Developed especially for the 911 GT2 RS, sports tires measuring 325/30 ZR 19 convert this massive power into equally massive performance and acceleration on the road: 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 28.9 seconds. Top speed is 205 mph.

Equally supreme stopping power on this ultra-high-performance sports car comes from PCCB composite ceramic brakes. Appropriate longitudinal and crosswise dynamics are ensured by the sporting RS set-up of the springs, PASM Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management, anti-roll bars, as well as the dynamic engine mounts and PSM Porsche Stability Management.
In its looks the new 911 GT2 RS stands out clearly from the 911 GT2 above all through the lavish use of carbon-fiber-reinforced (CFR) components in matte-black surface finish, even wider wheels and flared wheel arches at the front, new 911 GT2 light-alloy wheels with central locking, as well as ”GT2 RS“ model designations on the doors and rear lid. The upgraded front spoiler lip and the rear spoiler lip made of CFR and is now almost 0.4 inches higher, again in surface carbon finish, ensure the right aerodynamic precision as well as extra downforce.

The interior also exudes the flair of sporting performance in virtually every detail, featuring lightweight bucket seats made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic in carbon surface finish and lightweight door panels with door opening straps. The basic interior color is black, contrasting attractively with features such as the seat center sections and the roof lining as well as segments on the steering wheel rim. The gearshift and handbrake lever are both finished in red Alcantara suede.

Limited to just 500 units worldwide, the 911 GT2 RS goes on sale at Beverly Hills Porsche starting in October 2010. Planned MSRP will start at $245,000.
As an extremely limited production specialty vehicle, it is expected that all units produced will be pre-sold. Each vehicle will be custom produced to a customer’s specifications.
