Up until now, a variety of sources have said this car doesn't exist. However, World Car Fans have procured a half-dozen shots of the 997 GT2 in action and after looking at the photos and reading the specs, we can't imagine a reason not to bring this newest 911 to market.
Changes, much like all of Stuttgart's models, are subtle and evolutionary. Exterior modifications draw a parallel from the GT2's stable mate, the Turbo, with the addition of a larger wing and the deletion of the fog lamps. In keeping with the tradition of past GT2's, expect a rigid diet to drop the weight down a few hundred pounds.

The 3.6-liter turbo will allow engine output to crest the 500 hp mark (most reports are between 520 and 540 hp), contributing to a top speed that will enable the new GT2 to do the double-century, a milestone for factory-produced 911s.

      However, the lower wing-base with integrated engine air-intake vents looks production-ready. Expect the GT2's horsepower to be at least 520 when it's announced later this year with the possibility of as much as 550 or more on the table. Top speed should exceed 200 mph (320 km/h), a first for production-line 911s.

      It's time for Porsche to redesign the 911. It's getting stale.

      The 911 is the greatest car of all time. No car will ever match the 911 is all areas.

      anyone remember a while back there were spy shots released of what they called at the time "997 GT3" and it turned out to be an optional equipment package for the S? im guessing this is simillar

      ^^^ Yet still has no serious challengers to its title of greatest drivers car. It has been redesigned, but only to evolve to vehicle, and that's exactly why it is still the supercar of choice for those in the know.

      Only Porsche Knows what the term RangeTopper means when it applies it to it's model range. The other automakers just never get it right. The Stuff of Dreams, Cayenne Turbo S, Cayman S, 911 GT2.
      Mind u i have no respect for the Boxster even in S derivative, to me it's just a money spinner that Porsche needs in order to Break even every year.
