All 500 units of the ultimate 611bhp 911 sold in just over two months
21 October 2010

The most powerful road-going Porsche 911 to date, the GT2 RS, has sold out.

Porsche 911 enthusiasts have snapped up all 500 units of the 611bhp limited-edition special in the two months since it was revealed at the Moscow motor show, despite a price tag of almost £165,000.

Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre flat-six engine; torque stands at 516lb ft and is available from just 2250rpm. It can get form 0-62mph in 3.5sec and go on to reach a top speed of 205mph.

It uses a heavily modified version of the 911 GT3 RS’s chassis, a car that was recently crowned Britain’s Best Driver’s Car by Autocar.Read Autocar's first drive review of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Don't think this qualifies as news, it always happens, with Porsche and Gerrari - anything that has a very very limited production run, regardless of price - the people that purchase them usually have many other vehicles and this is just an addition to a very nice garage..

Porsche show the point of building seemingly very expensive but limited edition models, these are the ones that the loyalists and the rich speculaters snap up quickly and then sit back and wait for offers above list.

can it go off road at harrods. no. thats no good then. at least it has a vaguely sensible 3.6l flat6 (and a rollcage), compared to some ridiculous 7l v12. launched at the moscow motorshow, these rich russians must be loaded, whilst the rest of the country lives in rural poverty scrapping a living with russian agricultural machinery and dilapitaded infrastructure.

[quote thebaldgit]Porsche show the point of building seemingly very expensive but limited edition models[/quote] I disagree. I believe this car is inexpensive compared to other cars of similar performance and engineering viz. Zonda, 599 GTO and also the M600. I regard it as a relative bargain compared to other limited addition Porsches i.e. the £140k, 402bhp 911 Sport Classic http://www.autocar.co.uk/News/NewsArticle/AllCars/242822/

Eh? Who said anything about Russians buying them all? It was launched at the Moscow motorshow but so what. I'll wager that yes a fair few have been bought by Oligarch's and their kids but I'd guess even more have gone to true Porschephiles and nationalities of all different sorts. Are you perhaps expressing disatisfaction with your pototo-powered tractor, LOL?

The purists will tell you the real sell-out at Porsche was when the 911 went watercooled. :-)

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice

    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
