2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach

Go big or go home, right? Just when I thought the $442,540 Porsche GT2 RS I looked at back in May couldn’t be top, someone tried. This 2018 GT2 RS Weissach up for sale in Toronto, Canada went totally crazy with a Python Green Chromoflare finish and an interior to try to match. I hope Santa brings you a truck full of money this year, because that is what you’ll need to take this one home.

Nobody’s Perfect. This amazingly spec’d GT2RS is no exception. For one’s pursuit of perfection this GT2’s spec may just be the most incredible exercise in detail. Delivered new from Pfaff Porsche to a prominent Toronto collector the car would rest with virtually no mileage until sold to its second caretaker who exercised it a mere 200km. Today this Python Green Chromoflare is available as part of our Reserve inventory.

Wow. I totally get going crazy with your RS, and if you are going to do it, I guess this is what you do. Think is the first time I’ve seen a “Chromoflare” finish on a modern Porsche as the paint is unbelievably expensive and I can’t imagine what Porsche charged to do it. The thing is, I don’t mind it at all. The RS is already shouting from the mountain tops in plain colors, so you might as well going nuts with the color. Inside, they somehow tied in green leather, houndstooth, carbon fiber, yellow seat belts, and yellow stitching. Again, I don’t hate it all all. With some of heinous color combinators people dream out an actually build, props to whoever spec’d this one. The “Nobody’s perfect” door sills are a little kitschy, but I don’t have the money to build my own crazy RS, so I’ll let it be.

The price? A hefty $439,900. I’m curious if that this is actually under sticker given how much Porsche probably charged for this paint. Sadly I don’t have the VIN to see for sure, but I’m willing to bet it was around that number. Word is that this car has had a few owners before despite the only 1,200 miles, so maybe this one is a little too crazy. Your thoughts?

    The ultra-exclusive Porsche Chromaflair paint job costs roughly $123,000 CAD (which is approximately €82,645.50 or $97,000 USD depending on the fluctuating exchange rate).

  2. I get why Porsche makes these models, and I get why (very rich) people buy them, but this car does nothing for me. In the US, where besides a racetrack could you use it? It is a collector’s item/garage art. A “regular” turbo S could get you 95% of the performance at 1/3 the cost. Whereas the first GT2 RS (997.2) is an all time classic with it’s light weight and manual gearbox, I doubt this model will be as revered in the future.

    So track it. This car is more accessible on track than the 996 GT2 RS because of it’s more sophisticated stability control, provided you have the good sense to leave it on. The Turbo S is a far better choice for a street car. So if you are willing to do track days, probably no better hyper-car than this IMHO.

  4. What I don’t understand is making such a bespoke automobile and then selling it.
