FOLLOW Instagram + Facebook + Twitter


The Porsche 997 GT2 remains based on the 3.6 litre flat-6 engine, but now features twin variable geometry turbochargers, which generate 530 hp (395 kW) at 6500 rpm and 505 lb·ft (685 N·m) of torque from 2200 to 4500 rpm utilizing a 6-speed manual gearbox.

It has a curb weight of 3175 lbs, does 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds (Motor Trend’s test drive achieved this in 3.4 seconds) and 11.4 seconds at 127.9 mph (205.8 km/h) for the quarter mile. The GT2 also recorded a braking distance from 60 mph (97 km/h) to 0 of 98 feet (30 m) and recorded 1.10g lateral grip!!

The Porsche 997 GT2 has a maximum top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h) which makes it the first Porsche 911 to exceed the 200 mph (322 km/h) top speed.

The appearance of the 997 GT2 again differs from its sister-car, the Porsche 997 Turbo. It has a revised front lip, also carries a newly designed rear wing with two small air inlets on either side, and it has a different rear bumper now featuring titanium exhaust pipes and shark fin outlets.

German Porsche test driver Walter Röhrl recently lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife on a public day in 7 minutes 32 seconds in the new 997 GT2, besting supercars like the Bugatti Veyron and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and only slightly trailing the Nissan GT-R.
