‘Model sold out for the year; customers are collecting 911s’

German sports car and luxury SUV maker Porsche has unveiled its most powerful 911, the GT2 RS in India at an ex-showroom price of ₹3.83 crore. The on-road price of this sports car is above ₹5 crore, making it one of the costliest sports cars in the country.

Pavan Shetty, director, Porsche India, said: “We are seeing an increasing demand for true sports cars in India, and with vehicles like the 911 GT2 RS, we are confident Porsche is well placed to meet that demand.”

“We are sold out for this year and the demand for 911 is much more than the supply. Despite this, more customers are coming in,” Mr. Shetty said.

He said most Porsche customers in India are collecting the 911 and several of them have two to three 911s. “This indicates that the brand perception of Porsche has [become] enhanced. We are a true sports car company.”

100kmph in 28 seconds

The 911 comes with a 3.8 litre, 700 hp biturbo flat engine. The two-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km per hour in 2.8 seconds. The rear-wheel drive coupé has a top speed of 340 kmph.

The first 911 GT2 was developed in 1995 and was based on the 911 Turbo of the time. Subsequent generations followed in 2000 and 2007. In 2010, Porsche designed the first 911 GT2 RS as an even more powerful and near-motorsport variant.
