- The Clubsport is the hardcore version of the record-breaking 911 GT2 RS.

- Limited to 200 units for exclusive club sport race events.
The new-gen Porsche 911 is upon us. But Porsche has made sure the older model isn’t dead yet and it will continue to live in our hearts by showcasing the hardcore 911 GT2 RS Clubsport. This is the race-spec version of the ferocious 911 GT2 RS which broke the Nurburgring record just a few months ago.
Limited to just 200 units, the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can be raced at club sport events as well as select motorsport meets, says Porsche. The 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six now produces a whopping 690bhp which sends power to Porsche’s seven-speed dual clutch gearbox (PDK). Like in all racing versions of the 911, the driver changes gears via ergonomically positioned shift paddles on the steering wheel. The rear wheels are now wider at 310mm and braking duties are done by race-spec six-piston brake callipers with 15-inch rotors in front and four-piston callipers at the back.
Tipping the scale at just 1,390 kilos, the Clubsport comes equipped with Porsche’s Stability Management system (PSM) which includes traction control as well as an anti-lock braking system (ABS) which can be completely switched off as well. Inside the bare essential cabin, there’s a massive roll-cage inside along with six-point safety harness. Surprisingly, Porsche hasn’t excluded air conditioning from the package. But being a non-road-homologated race-car, there’s only a single driver’s seat inside the carbon-fibre and Alcantara rich cabin.
Prices for the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport is 405,000 Euro (approx. Rs 3.3 crore) plus taxes and can be had by May next year at exclusive delivery events.
