Porsche ‘Weissach Package’ Explained In Case

The making of a special edition Porsche ‘Weissach Package’ starts with a magnesium roof, carbon fiber seats, lightweight glass, pull straps instead of door handles and lack of most sound deadening material which might result in the audio system never being used.

Now if all the above doesn’t seem extreme enough, you can add more lightness with the Weissach Package, named of course for the marque’s famous test track. The from USD18,000 option trims another 13 pounds from the car by substituting carbon fiber for the front and rear sway bars and coupling rods, roof, steering wheel trim and shift paddles. That works out to nearly (from) USD1,400 for each pound of added lightness.

You can drop another 25 pounds of weight by ordering the forged magnesium wheels, which makes the tab another (from) USD13,000 heavier. Order all that and the carbon ceramic brakes, and your GT3 RS will weigh just 3,153 pounds.

Interestingly, with the optional Weissach package and the optional forged magnesium wheels, a further weight reduction of around 30 kilograms can be achieved compared with a Porsche 911 GT3 RS equipped with a Clubsport package.

With this option, the rear wing, the front lid, the roof and the upper shell of the SportDesign exterior mirrors are made from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) in a carbon-weave finish. The anti-roll bars and coupling rods at the front and rear are also made from CFRP.

The unmistakable trademark of the Weissach package is the large “PORSCHE” lettering on the rear wing.

The interior is dominated by the bolted titanium roll cage, which is approximately twelve kilograms lighter than the steel roll cage featured in the Clubsport package.

Even small details have been optimized to minimize weight, such as the ultra-light gearshift paddles and the steering wheel cover made from CFRP, both of which come in a carbon-weave finish.

Even the floor carpet has been reduced. In the interior, the Weissach package logo on the headrests and the badge on the cup holder trim also indicate that this 911 GT3 RS has been optimized as far as possible in terms of its weight.

So, the next time you see an advert for a Porsche ‘Weissach Package’ on sale, you will understand why its asking price is a premium over its sibling.
