OK, so it didn’t sell out in three minutes like the Neiman Marcus Chevy Camaro Convertible, but Porsche has confirmed that two months after its debut at the Moscow Auto Salon, the GT2 RS is all sold out. That’s right, so if you don’t have one now, go cry yourself to sleep in your regular old GT2, or worse still, a run-of-the-mill 911 Turbo.

For those lucky 500, they’ll be able to kill themselves enjoy piloting all 620-hp of twin-turbo insanity provided by the ultra-light weight monster that Porsche touts as not only the fastest 911 of all time, but the fastest Porsche of all time. Carrera GT, who?

Owners even get bragging rights on the Nurburgring, with the GT2 RS running a lap time at the Green Hell of just 7:18 – 4 seconds quicker than the Viper ACR.

At a retail cost of $245,000 the total value of all GT2 RS models sold is an astounding $122,500,000.

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.
