Porsche has taken the wraps off the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport.
Limited to 200 units, the Clubsport edition is a stripped-out, track-ready version of the 911 GT2 RS that set the road-legal Nurbürgring lap record in November 2018.
Like the standard RS, the Clubsport is powered by a heavily reworked version of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat six-cylinder engine used in the outgoing 911 Turbo. The revisions crank its peak power up to a heady 690bhp - a considerable 325bhp more than the last-generation 911 Carrera, and 79bhp more than the previous GT2 of 2010.
The Clubsport weighs 80kg less than the 1470kg standard model, so can be expected to improve upon the standard GT2's 2.8sec 0-62mph time and 211mph top speed. The weight loss has been achieved through the removal of any unnecessary interior components, including the passenger seat, carpeting and sound insulation. A large roll cage, bucket seat and six-point harness have been added in their place.
The Clubsport does retain traction control, stability management and anti-locking brakes, which can be adjusted separately by use of a dashboard-mounted switch.
Porsche intends the car, which won't be road-legal, to be used at clubsport events and certain motorsport meets.

Priced from £207,506, the first new 911 GT2 since 2010 is also the fourth to enter production since the model name's introduction to the Porsche line-up in 1995.
