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.
The king of the current 911s, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, finally has hit the ground and a few of them are popping up for sale so I thought I’d put together a post to highlight some of those I have seen. I doubt these are the only ones currently available; I also doubt you’ll have any trouble finding others up for sale in the coming months. Like the current GT3 and the GT3 RS before it (and like the 991.2 GT3 RS soon to hit our shores) ample opportunities will exist to get your hands on a very lightly used example. Assuming you want to pay the substantial markup. In the case of the GT2 RS we’re talking anywhere from $150K to $200K over MSRP. That’s basically an entire GT3 by itself and means you’re looking at over $500K all in.
So what are you getting? A 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 delivering 700 hp via Porsche’s 7-speed PDK transmission only to the rear wheels. Relative to a Turbo S it’s also lost 286 pounds in weight. Add the Weissach package, as all of the below have, and you lose another 40 pounds while adding a bunch of carbon fiber details. You also can have a lot of red in the interior should you so desire. It’s lapped the Nürburgring nearly 10 seconds faster than a 918 Spyder and those are not exactly slow cars. So, um, yeah performance will be insane. Do you need all of that performance? Of course not. Do you want it? Most definitely!
Porsche has never been shy about celebrating or commemorating its achievements through special edition models of the 911. So, when they wanted to celebrate and honor the achievements of the Motorsport department, the choice was obvious and the Weissach Edition 911 was released in 1980. Based off of a standard 911SC Coupe, the Weissach Edition came in either a Black or Platinum Metallic exterior with Platinum painted Fuchs wheels all surrounding a Doric Gray leather interior contrasted by Burgundy carpeting. Each car would also come standard with a whale tail, but it is the interior especially that set these cars apart from others versions of the 911SC. The Weissach Edition featured here is located in Carlsbad, California and sits with 66,309 miles.
I’ve written about a few 911SCs here at GCFSB recently that were typically very well maintained, original, and very pretty. The SC was the first…
