There actually aren't a ton of performance-specific features that can be purchased to make the GT2 RS sportier.

We've clicked a whole bunch of boxes, dear readers, so you don't have to. By doing so, we've added up the total cost of a 2018 Porsche 911 GTS RS, with every available option, and as you can probably expect, it won't come cheap. The exact cost, in fact, is $407,845.

Porsche has been proudly showing off its new 911 GT2 RS in recent weeks - including an unveil at the Electronic Entertainment Expo last month - and with the online configurator now available, we know how much it is, and what kind of goodies you can tack on to the base model.

Porsche is known for the long list of options it offers with its vehicles, and the GT2 RS is no exception. You can upgrade everything from the paint (certain special colours cost an extra $$4,820) to the seatbelt outlet trim (seriously) - the Alcantara add-on will set you back an additional $590.

The most expensive option - by far - is the $35,370 Weissach Package, which among other things replaces numerous exterior and interior pieces with carbon fibre. This lowers the weight by a total of 17 kilograms compared to a standard model. If you want the lightest GT2 RS possible - and a lighter wallet - the Weissach Package is for you.

There actually aren't a ton of performance-specific features that can be purchased to make the GT2 RS sportier - probably because it's already dialed to the nines. There's no shorter of creature comforts that can be added, though, from auto-dimming mirrors with integrated rain sensors for $790 (erm, that stuff isn't standard?) to a Bose surround sound audio system ($1,820).

Then there's the personalization you can opt for, with one of our favourites being the $1,010 carbon fibre floor mats with leather edging. You can also choose your favourite colour for the interior stitching (which is no extra cost), as well as painted air vents ($1,820).

If you cringe at the idea of spending nearly half a million dollars for the 911 GT2 RS, you can skip all the extra stuff and purchase one for a base price of $334,000. That comes standard with a 3.8-litre twin-turbo boxer engine that produces 700 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. If that alone isn't enough to justify the price, we don't know what will.
