Nu­mer­ous weight-sav­ing mea­sures helped Porsche keep the kerb weight of the GT2 RS down to 1470kg, and this in­cludes nu­mer­ous ex­te­rior and in­te­rior parts made from car­bon-fi­bre re­in­forced plastic. Buy­ers can knock the weight down by a fur­ther 30kg by opt­ing for the Weis­sach pack­age, which en­dows the car with even more car­bon and ti­ta­nium parts.

The GT2 RS cabin ac­com­mo­dates just two oc­cu­pants, but they do get to en­joy full bucket seats with a car­bon-weave fin­ish and the in­te­rior colour scheme is flashy to say the least, with its com­bi­na­tion of red Al­can­tara and black leather. Buy­ers also get the full PCM in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem with nav­i­ga­tion as well as a ‘Track Pre­ci­sion’ app that sends driv­ing data and anal­y­sis to your smart­phone.

In an­other special touch, Porsche has de­signed an ex­clu­sive ti­ta­nium-bod­ied watch that’s ex­clu­sive to buy­ers of this ve­hi­cle.

Two-seater Porsche GT2 can be or­dered with lighter Weis­sach pack­age.
