First details of Porsche’s new 911 GT2 has been revealed. It’s 3.6 litre twin VGT turbocharged boxer engine will be putting out 530 horsepower at 6,500rpm and 685Nm of torque between 2,200rpm to 4,500rpm, compared to the 911 Turbo’s 480hp at at 6,000rpm and 620Nm of torque between 1,950rpm to 5,000rpm.
So that’s more torque, more power, yet two less wheels to drive them through as the GT2 has always been a rear wheel drive monster. You can expect some serious rubber burning with this one. 0 to 100km/h takes 3.6 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than the 911 Turbo Tiptronic S.
Though not officially unveiled by Porsche yet, I’m already waiting to see what RUF can do to this car.
