Porsche 911 GT2 spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

Our spies have just captured the slightly revised Porsche 911 GT2 doing what it does best – storming around a track (the Nürburgring, specifically). The removal of foglamps and a more pronounced chin spoiler set the hardcore 911 apart from its lesser Turbo brethren, and rest assured, the big GT2 wing is still intact.

Official details haven't been released just yet, but we'd expect the GT2 to use the same twin-turbo flat-six as the 911 Turbo S. This means output will be around 530 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, but remember – the GT2 should be significantly lighter than the Turbo. GT2 models ditch all-wheel drive for a rear-drive setup, and the interior is stripped out for even more weight savings. (Hey, Porsche – if those black prototype wheels don't weigh too much, we'll gladly take those, too.)

The GT2 looks like it's in the final stages of testing, so we wouldn't be shocked if the production model showed up at a certain European auto show (*ahem*Paris) later this year.

        More like none of the commenters here can afford to buy one anyway.

        Anyone who says every 911 looks the same is not a 911 fan to being with.

        Angry,

        Glad to see your talents include assessing one's ability to afford various cars based upon their responses here. That is an extraordinary gift.

        the news is that they make a new GT2. and there are visual differences even if you can't see them. it's not like you would buy it if it would look different, but the people who actually buy this car want it to look exactly like it does.

      More like a rear lift.

      its just the 997.2 version. huge improvements on the rear. a lot smoother. as far as the front is concerned, i really cant pick out anything.

      Porsche must go to a good surgeon because I can't tell the difference!

      Looks like a Porsche, like every Porsche ever. Its beautiful but it is the same, always. Germans don't care what it looks like as long as it runs great. A good and bad thing if you ask me.

      I'd love to be a designer at Porsche. Spend 1 day flipping a turn signal upside down, and the next 364 exhausting my paycheck.

      look at the hood gap- for anyone that talks smack about the LFA having a gap in it's hood and says it looks like it won't shut, needs to look here at this porsche's front end. More than just Lexus use it. But this is still my favorite porsche next to the all time best GT1, there is nothing better than it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's not a gap- it's a vent. This has been a very popular porsche design feature for a couple years now, and the reason I think the LFA is getting so much crap for their "gap" is that it is an obvious copy of the Porsche vent, and yet looks much worse.

      Looks like a VW

      Guys, eat it up this a German car. Don't compare them to a lexus or a toyota (think recall, Porsche never had a recall).

      But then again, whenever my RX-8 leaves me, I think I'm gonna get that new Camaro, cool car! Reasonable price.

      It's hard for me to notice a facelift on a Porsche.
        • 4 Years Ago
        If a Lexus is a re-badged Toyota, what's an Audi?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ditto! Although, I kind of like the more aggressive front end, especially that splitter at the bottom.
        I've always hardly taken notice of 911's because, year after year, they pretty much look the same. But this one made me look just a little longer. And, I too, think those wheels look hot on that car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        thats kinda the point. In a world where lexus sells rebadged toyotas at twice the price- it's nice that there are still companies that stick to subtle tweaks.
        • 4 Years Ago
        same here.
        • 4 Years Ago
        What, you don't see the new "Autoblog front splitter"? It's lighter than carbon fibre.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I think face lift belongs in quotes.
