GT2

A 911 is no ordinary sports car. And the GT2 is no ordinary 911.

A ground breaking 477 hp flat six engine with improved intercooling over the 911 Turbo, the result a rocket that can roll from 0-62 in 3.9 seconds. PCCB proves more powerful in 13.78 inch rotors weighing 50 percent less than standard disc brakes, that stop this speed demon in less than 100 feet. The absence of all wheel drive and electronic control systems shed additional weight.

The 911 GT2 chassis delivers one of the most dynamic driving experiences ever featured on a production Porsche to achieve that performance, Porsche lowered the center of gravity of the 911 GT2 by about 20 mm compared to the 911 Turbo, and added a revised spring and damper system.

The GT2 runs on lightweight 18-inch monobloc alloys, with wheel center caps bearing the GT2 logo. The front wheels (18 x 8.5) run on 235/40 ZR 18 tires, while the rears (18 x 12) come with 315/30 ZR 18s.

Mike,

I have seen a few of the older GT2's and other models as well, but for some reason, I cannot get pass the air cooling. I've never been big on the air cooled P-Cars. But talking to the owners of these cars, they love them to death and would want anything else to tool around in.
