GT2 RS Weissach on Bring-A-Trailer is the Ultimate Driver’s Porsche
Porsche 911 GT2 RS is one of the world’s most track capable street cars, but it comes with a big price.
Car & Driver has been holding their annual Lightning Lap competition for more than a decade, but this year, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach Pack ran the quickest lap at Virginia International Raceway of any car to ever participate in the magazine’s track shootout. The 911 beat a long list of incredible performance cars to set the new record for the Lightning Lap competition, including the C7 Corvette ZR1, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, the Dodge Viper ACR and many other supercars.
So, while looking through Porsche listings on Bring-A-Trailer, we stumbled across a 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach with just 151 miles on the odometer, and just had to talk about it, and for more reasons that just its outright speed.
The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is powered by a 3.8-liter, twin turbocharged flat-six Boxer engine that delivers a whopping 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, with a 7-speed PDK transmission sending that power towards the rear wheels.
This particular 911 GT2 RS features a long list of options that includes the Weissach Package, the extended-range fuel tank, magnesium wheels with a center-locking hub, a front-axle lift system, the smokers package, a Bose sound system, the Chrono Package, the Porsche Dynamic Light System and a leather interior with black and red trim. In short, it’s well specced, but it’s the Weissach Pack that makes this latest RS so special.
The Weissach Package adds then huge carbon fiber wing out back, carbon fiber anti-roll bars, carbon fiber end links, carbon fiber shift paddles, carbon fiber steering wheel trim, package-specific logos on the headrests and a Weissach dash plaque. This package cuts about 40 pounds from the curb weight of the GT2 RS, making an already insane performance car even better.

This particular 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach is being sold on Bring-A-Trailer by a luxury auto dealership in Florida. The dealership acquired the car from the original buyer with 80 miles on the odometer and since then, 71 miles have been added, leading to a total current mileage of just 151 miles. This car is practically new, so the winning bidder is going to drive away with supercar that has barely been broken in.
As you might imagine, acquiring one of the world’s most track-capable street cars doesn’t come cheap. Bidding well exceeded the original window sticker,which was $336,860 when new, which, to us, is a shame. However, we understand that when it comes to high-performance Porsches, demand seemingly always outweighs supply.
So the winner is paying hefty premium, but, then again, it’s a freaking GT2 RS Weissach, so we imagine that it will be well worth the money. Now, to that new owner: take your GT2 RS for a drive! As Ferry Porsche once said, “Porsches are meant to be driven, not polished.”
