The addition of the numerals, GT2, to any Porsche 911 signifies the most extreme-iteration of the model. Porsche's GT2 nameplate has been in service since the 1993 993 generation of 911 and was originally intended to meet track homologation purposes. This 2008 997 Porsche 911 GT2 with 26,000 miles has reportedly been garage-kept for all of its life. It comes from a generation of Porsche's that is virtually guaranteed to be a future classic. According to records just over 200 GT2 RS' were sold in the United States.
To differentiate it from its other stablemates, the GT2 has several functional additions made to its exterior. Included are titanium exhausts housed by a different rear-bumper, a unique rear wing, and different front chin spoiler. The 997 Porsche 911 GT2 was built with the track in mind. In light of this, expecting the interior to be luxurious would be a stretch. But you do get GT2-specific items, such as bucket seats which are crafted from carbon fiber. This particular car has also been fitted with a K40 radar detector and jammer.
The star of the GT2 is the flat-six engine. A purist’s machine, the GT2 removes the bulky all-wheel-drive hardware that featured on the 997 Turbo, which allows for greater involvement and less weight. The 3.6-liter engine of the 997 Porsche 911 GT2 features twin turbochargers which help generate 523hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. These figures ae good enough for a claimed 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds, and 0-100mph in just 7.4 seconds. The top speed, if you dared, is 204mph, making it one of the fastest Porsches to ever leave the factory at the time.
