The track-only GT2 RS Clubsport is Porsche’s latest limited edition creation. Lighter, more downforce, better handling and a power figure of 700 hp.
The GT2 RS Clubsport is designed for customers to be a turn-key race car they can use at Porsche’s Clubsport events and other selected motorsport events. The 700 hp racing version of the road-legal GT2 RS is a limited series of only 200 cars.
The technology used in the GT2 RS Clubsport is based of its road legal sibbling. Just like the 935 actually. They all share the same rear mounted 3.8L twin-turbo flat-six which sends power to the rear wheels through the same PDK gearbox. Like other racing Porsches, the shifting is done by paddles on the steering wheel. One which in this case is carbon fiber comes from a GT3 R. Steel brakes replace the carbon ceramics found on the road car. They measure 390 mm up front combined with a six-piston calliper and 380 mm at the rear with a four-piston calliper.
Thanks to a strong diet, the GT2 RS Clubsport loses 80 kilos tipping the scale at 1390 kg. Porsche claims the car is near standard and they’re not lying. Because there is not much more that can be told about this car. Finally we can only discuss what Porsche have changed exterior-wise. The Clubsport receives a bigger rear wing for improved downforce. And going to the front you can see the bigger brake ducts providing extra cooling for the brakes.
So is it basically a 935 with different bodywork and a bigger production quota? Maybe yes. But that doesn’t leave out the fact that it’s freakishly cool and all will be sold out in no time.
