In the wake of the Porsche 911 GT2 brochure leak on Thursday, Carscoop has posted the first official images of the mighty new 'bahn-stormer. They're clearer than the ones included in the brochure sca, which you can view by click ing here. The car'sessentials break down as follows:

2008 Porsche 911 GT2
  • 3.6-liter twin turbo flat six
  • 530 horsepower at 5,600 rpm
  • 505 lb.-ft. of torque from 2,200 to 4,500 rpm
  • 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds
  • 0-100 mph in 7.1 seconds
  • Top speed of 204 mph
  • Curb weight:: 3,175 lbs
  • Titanium exhaust
  • 6-speed manual gearbox
  • Launch control system
The brochure spells it all out in greater detail, but suffice to say that the new GT2 is one of the most serious sports cars to come from Porsche -- ever, and it appears to be more than worthy of the "Respect Required" tagline the automaker applies to it. Click the gallery below for the newest photos. We'll add to it as more become available.

      Porsche is a company all about engineering the finest cars. I'd a company spend more time and energy making what's under the skin work better than worrying about how it looks on the outside.

      Yea Porsche's suck because they all look the same. O_o

      I know it's against every instinct of the Porsche fanatics, but they really need to give up on the rear-engined layout. They have to resort to all kinds or chassis and suspension trickery to make it work. Imagine how good the 911 would be if they'd simply move the damned engine forward 18 inches... When you're talking about a no-limits, megabucks sportscar like the GT2, why compromise for the sake of tradition? I actually think the Boxster is a better car than the standard 911 and more true to Porsche's heritage anyway.

        I'm with you. The Boxster and Cayman, while slower and less powerful, are superior in handling and traction. A Cayman 4S would be a menace for the Carrera.

      porsche cars look all the same to me.. lame. maybe except for cayman and carrera GT.

      Put the new turbo engine in the Cayman and you'd have a 911 killer for sure. Porsche tried to kill the 911 before with the 928, but failed. The Cayman has what it takes for Porsche to pull it off this time. Porsche should be putting its engineering efforts into its best platform.

      This is exactly why I respect porsche as a car maker, and it cannot be diluted in any way by the abomination called Cayenne and the awkward panamera. Porsches may be common on the streets today, compared to Lambo, Ferrari, or Aston, but what people see is mostly base Carrera or Carrera S. The GT3, GT2 are actually quite rare and exclusive, and people who buy them do not mind that they look almost the same as a car that costs two times less. Its the performance that matters, and looking at the specs and pictures, I have no doubts that they put their best in making this car reality (which cannot be said about the cayman it seems).

      I want one. Anyone else think this will kick the $#!t out of a Gallardo Superleggera and the coming Challenge Stradale?
