Simply put, the 911 GT2 is the fastest and most powerful road-going Porsche 911 to ever see the light of day.
Essentially a pure and pretty radical racing version of the 997 Turbo, the GT2 has many weight-saving features, in addition to the minimum of creature comforts. The chassis is based on the normally aspirated GT3, with suspension and brakes geared specifically to the needs of the more serious driver. At the heart of the car is a modified version of the Turbo’s powerplant. The engine features a remapped ECU, uprated turbos, a revised exhaust system in titanium, all of which helps push the motor to 530bhp. The bodywork was modified with a new front bumper, revised rear bumper, also a larger rear wing with two small air scoops on either side.
And the result of all of these modifications by Porsche is as follows, 0 to 100kph in 3.6 seconds. 0 to 200kph in 10.6 seconds. Maximum speed 204 mph. The only Porsche which comes close is the 1998 Porsche 911 GT1, a homologated race car for street use.
Famous race car pilot and Porsche development team member, Walter Röhrl drove the GT2 round the famous Nürburgring in 7 minutes 30 seconds, in the process getting rather close to Porsche’s own Carrera GT hypercar’s figures.
Pleasingly, this rare 997 GT2 Club Sport, first registered in late 2010, has been in the custody of just one owner from new, and is offered with UK customs cleared, also a dealer service record.
Truly a sought after limited production run modern classic supercar, and one of a handful of road cars able to break 200 miles per hour barrier.
