2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Click above for high-res image gallery

A limited-edtion, 620 horsepower sports car is quite an enticing piece of machinery. Porsche is building just 500 examples of its 2011 911 GT2 RS and – unsurprisingly – they're all spoken for. The twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter flat-six powered 911 can run from 0-62 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. If there's enough room, the car will keep accelerating until it hits 205 mph. It's an amazing piece of German engineering and the price tag is an equally amazing $245,000.

Want to see one in action? Stop drooling all over the images in the gallery and take a look at the video after the jump.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Sold Out after Only a Few Months

Stuttgart. The most powerful and high-performance road-going sports car in the history of the Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is not only fast on the road: all 500 units of the limited edition 911 GT2 RS were sold to customers within an extremely short amount of time. Presented at the Moscow Auto Salon on August 25th, this top model emphasizes the success story of the 911.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS embodies what Porsche Intelligent Performance stands for. Despite the fact that its power has been enhanced by 90 HP, its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have actually been reduced by about 5 percent compared to the 911 GT2, bringing them down to 11.9 l/100 km (NEDC) and 284 g/km, respectively. The highly-efficient, 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry (VTG), offers 620 HP and accelerates the high-performance sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

      Unlike that overpriced Neiman Marcus Camaro, this sell out of a special edition makes sense.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I assume that this is also a rear-engined car. It's still a squashed beetle to me, I'd rather have the carrera GT.
      • 4 Years Ago
      No problem, I'll take the new 2011 Turbo that runs to 60 in 2.8 seconds. :o)
        • 4 Years Ago
        Or better yet, the Turbo S. Or the GT3 RS. So many choices, so little funds...

      Relative to a lot of other supercars, $245k seems like a bargain. Isn't that about the same as a new Gallardo?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I still find it odd that with all the 911 variants they don't have an appropriate hierarchial performance measument scale. Like one poster above said, the 2011 911 Turbo does 0-60 in 0.7 seconds less than this car's claimed 3.5, which is quite significant.

      On the other hand, with the secret love I have of the higher end 911 line (anything above the Carrera), I would likely, if I had the money and connections, get the GT2 RS. Top top top.

        Switzer GT-R: 0-300 19.7 sec

        @ kevin , 0-60 is irrelevant in the real world , the turbo does 0-60 faster because it has AWD and a PDK gearbox, the GT2 RS has a manual and RWD. to get an idea how fast this car is :

        Nissan GTR 0-300kph in 53 seconds
        997 turbo 0-300km in ~40 seconds
        Carrera GT 0-300kmh in 34 seconds
        997 GT2 RS 0-300kph in 28 seconds

        maybe it has to do with the goal the car is designed for, a legal FIA GT racer.
        note: how the rims are attached.
      • 4 Years Ago
      "They" look all the same to me.....Porsche should dip into their rich race history and revive different models.....
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'm starting to realize just how many rich people there are this world...it seams like every super expensive special edition anything gets sold out right after we hear about it...or maybe the people that buy these cars know about these way ahead of us mortals?

      i would give two nuts for that car!
        • 4 Years Ago
        They definitely know about them way ahead of you... er... um... us mortals.

        You have to be a billionaire just to make it onto the forbes 400 for the USA. Then there is the rest of the world, which with other countries developing rapidly, not to mention Europe and Japan etc means that there are a lot of really loaded people out there. Percentage wise they may be less than a tenth of a percent of the population, but that is still quite a few when you are talking billions. Also, if you have a billion dollars, even just a few percent interest on that money is tens of millions of dollars annually, with no work on your part and that you could spend every year and NEVER run out. Just some food for thought.

      Aww damn, and I was really hoping to get one of these around bonus time... :snicker:

      500 Lucky people.

      Dead, but lucky people.
      This car is evil and it scares me, but I want it badly.

      did Toyota finally sell all the LF-A units ?
      • 4 Years Ago
      This car is FREAKING TITS!! I LOVE IT!!!! COME TO DADDY!!!

      If you don't like this, you have no beating heart.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I must say, Porsche's bore me. I've never loved them. However, this car, is simply gorgeous. The color scheme, design, shape, everything is amazing.
