Porsche is finding a way to restart the GT2 RS generation line for only four vehicles, following a payload send fire that saw a group of four of the leader 911s sent to the base of the Atlantic Ocean.
Generation of the 691bhp Stuttgart heavy hammer finished in February, since when the particular tooling associated with making it has been expelled. It's currently being substituted prepared for another, ultra- short form keep running in April.
A little more than seven days back, Davy Jones' storage guaranteed the last four GT2 RSs being sent to Brazil. They sank with the Grimaldi Lines deliver Grande America somewhere in the range of 140 nautical miles off the bank of France and now lie about 15,000 ft beneath the waves, making them about as salvageable as Chris Evans' Top Gear profession.
The four copycat autos will be worked in the definite unique specs and trim blends picked by their purchasers in South America's biggest nation, likewise remaining loyal to that manufacture request – albeit, similar to their indistinguishable twins currently lost to the world, they'll presumably still end up on a similar vessel. It's not known whether these four vehicles will have indistinguishable sequential numbers from the perished autos, or new ones.
When we reached Porsche GB for an announcement, all the organization could let us know originated from the substance of an announcement discharged by Porsche Brazil, which peruses as pursues: “Porsche Brazil confirms that 37 of its new cars, in route from Hamburg, Germany to Santos, Brazil, were aboard the vessel Grande America that suffered a maritime incident near the coast of Brest, France, on March 12, 2019.
“Among the fleet were four 911 GT2 RS units. In a special decision and to uphold its commitment to its valued Brazilian customers, Porsche has ensured that those units will be reproduced in the order in which they were originally confirmed.”
The other 33 Porsches were of 'progressively customary' breeds and can be supplanted as an issue of routine through typical creation plans. Additionally on board the stricken Grande America were 10 tons of hydrochloric corrosive and 70 tons of sulphuric corrosive, in addition to around 2000 vehicles.
The four substitution GT2 RSs ought to get to their new proprietors in June, says Porsche. May their doppelgangers rest in harmony.
