Oh baby, does the Porsche GT2 sound like fun. The twin-turbo flat six cranks out a mind-blowing 525 hp while pushing a vehicle that weighs 220 lbs less than the already light 911 turbo. Hitting 60 mph will take only 3.7 seconds, and you can keep the speedo going up to and past 200 mph. If evasive maneuvers are needed, virtually no car handles better than a 911, and ceramic brakes enable you to stop fast enough to knock the false teeth right out of Grandpa. There is no question the GT2 will have supercar-besting performance, and now we hear that we won't have to wait much longer for this RWD two-seater.
We've seen it in countless spy shots, and we'll see the real McCoy at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Now we're learning that the full-fledged official version will be available in November, right in time for the Christmas shopping season. We know it will cost somewhere in the vicinity of $200,000, but we're putting it on our list anyway.

      I'm not porsche bashing, I just don't think the 911 is a "great handler". Fun to drive, and requires a TON of driver skill. The morons on the track just break hard and accelerate fast out of the turns with them, while the boxsters and caymans pile up behind the 911's on the turns since they can carry so much more speed in the corner easily with less driver skill. That's just how I define "good handling."

      Wait, did you just say the 911 turbo is "already light"?

      "4. virtually no car handles better than a 911..."

      For all you Porsche bashers... why don't you come back here and give your comment after you have actually driven one? Don't bull shit your way here just for the sake of leaving a comment to look and feel cool.

      virtually no car handles better than a 911...

      Other than, say, a Cayman. Or a Boxster for that matter. Or a 914 while we're at it.

      Ugh, another version of the same old 911. Must be Thursday.

      Yeah like "driver" said...go drive a 997 Porsche 911tt and see what you think of the other ones then. Ignorance annoys me.

      Porsche 911: a triumph of development over design!
      • 7 Years Ago
      There's no denying the GT2 is a mean machine, but for my $200k it's the Alfa 8C Competizione. Only a few cars stir your soul every time you look at them, and to me the 911 looks like just another Porsche.

      Must admit though, I've never driven one... which might change my mind.

      this is what porsche should spend its time on. not on goofy suvs or "4 dr sports cars". It is way too much car for me but all that tech trickles down to the right one for me. I hope they sell a ton.
      (a cayman would be nice if I could fit in it.heh.)

      Oh. My. God. That thing is the definition of Heaven. I would do ANYTHING to even drive this car.
