The prospect of combining the most powerful turbo engine in their range at the time with a manual gearbox, and mounting them in a rear-wheel drive lightweight 911 was the inspiration for the rather special, GT2. Simultaneously Porsche would upgrade and modify the suspension and brakes, increase the engine output and extensively lighten the car, to create the ultimate driver's version of the current model at that point. This recipe has been used, to great effect, with the 993, 996 and 997 versions of their iconic 911.

This car is the 997 GT2 RS version which was introduced in May 2010, and is one of just 500 produced worldwide. The 3.6 litre engine uses twin variable-geometry water cooled turbochargers to produce a serious 620bhp and 516 lbs feet of torque through a six-speed manual transmission, leading to a maximum speed in excess of 205mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.4 seconds! In simple terms, it is the most powerful, road legal 911 ever manufactured. Stopping power, with big Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes, is equally impressive.
Supplied new in 2010 by Porsche Centre Reading, this C16 GT2 RS is 1 of only 16 cars supplied to the UK and was specified with the 'Black and Red Club Sport' package. Additional factory options included: full Porsche satellite navigation, an iPod dock, tyre pressure monitor, grey tinted windows, a full Chrono plus package, five-point seat belts, electric windows and air conditioning. A little over 2,000 miles have been covered since new, and as one might expect, this Porsche is presented in superb condition.
Externally, the 911 GT2 RS stands out clearly from the other 911 models through the lavish use of carbon-fibre reinforced components with a matt black surface finish. The interior of the 911 GT2 RS also exudes sporting intent in virtually every detail. Lightweight two-piece bucket seats made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, are standard, as are lightweight door panels with fabric straps instead of traditional door handles. The basic interior colour is black, which contrasts dramatically with red elements, such as the seat centre sections, the roof lining and segments of the steering wheel rim. The gear lever and handbrake are also finished in red Alcantara.
This low mileage example was purchased by its current owner from respected Porsche specialists JZM, and has only one former registered keeper. The car has just been serviced by JZM, and is ready to be used and enjoyed. In addition, the ECU data from the car is exemplary and shows no signs of misuse or over revs. The current owner has never used his prized Porsche on a track, and it has always been correctly stored whilst in his care.
This GT2RS represents a rare opportunity to experience the ultimate version of the Porsche 911, and crucially for the purists out there, one that is mated to a manual gearbox. It is also the fastest production 911 to ever lap the Nurburgring at 7 minutes and 18 seconds, and offers incredible levels of performance. Driving the RS really quickly requires total concentration, however conversely, at lower speeds it's docile and temperament free and is completely at home cruising around town in classic 911 style.
