The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is one of the most snarling and aggressive road-legal cars in the world. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that supercars are pretty easy to crash. Thankfully, there is a booming market for destroyed supercars. However, this wrecked 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS will never see public roads again.
This 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS met a tragic ending
According to CarScoops, The 911 GT2 RS is the fastest road-legal car Porsche has ever made. There are no two ways about it; the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is one of the baddest cars ripping across our planet as we speak.
Unfortunately, that means that people can’t help but crash them. Although knuckleheads can and often do buy cars that are far more capable than they are, the Porsche GT2 RS is one that even pro racing drivers can easily struggle with.
This completely smashed 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is currently listed for auction on Copart’s site out of Houston, TX. Although this car’s title has been officially banned from ever being road legal again, the bid is still up to $61,000 at the time of this writing.
What does a “non-repairable” title mean?
CarScoops reports that this crushed Porsche has been given the real death sentence, a non-repairable title. However, many people may think to themselves, “pssh, Yeah, right! I could fix it!”
While that could very well be true, the title says that this particular car has been damaged to the point where no amount of repair can be done to make it safe enough to drive, and it still be the same car.
So, why would someone pay $60,000 for a car they can’t drive? Well, the parts for a high-end supercar still have tons of value. If someone is working on a race car build or needs parts for their salvageable GT2, this could actually be a cheaper way to go than getting new parts from Porsche.
The auction site doesn’t give any details on how the Porsche got destroyed. It’s probably fair to say that at this point, the hows and whys aren’t all that important. Whatever happened to this Porsche was bad.
The damage wraps around the entire front end of the GT2 RS, but the driver’s side got the majority of the heat. The interior photos show that whatever happened, the hit was hard enough to pop the airbags.
Luckily, according to Copart Auctions, the engine is in the back of these Porsches, leaving it in still running and idling cognition.
If the engine is still running, we can likely assume the transmission is still intact. Those two major items with some other bits and bobs here and there make this still a fairly valuable car.
What is so special about the Porsche 911 GT2 RS?
This 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS has a 700-hp Twin-Turbo 3.8-liter flat-six. This engine makes a pickup truck-like 553-lb-ft of torque to boot.
If you can keep all the rear two wheels hooked up, the GT2 RS will do 0-60 mph in only 2.7 seconds. The result of this insane acceleration is a top speed of 211 mph. All of this German Go-Kartery started at a heavy $293,200 new.
