This GT2 is absolutely mint. Over $10,000 invested in a meticulous,
expert paint correction and XPEL Paint Protection Film give this
stunning GT2 a mirror like finish. Sport Chrono Package, Alcantara
interior and over $7,000 in carbon fiber interior options. See
photo of window sticker for a list of features and options.
Tasteful modifications include BBS rims, upgraded intercooler,
Oakley titanium exhaust, carbon fiber side air intakes, LED rear
tail lenses, yellow gauges and custom floor inserts. Original
parts, a factory car cover and a stack of GT2 goodies come with the
car (see photos). Either the BBS rims or the factory black rims
will be sold with the car. The second set are available for
purchase. The red GT2 graphics are on top of the XPEL and can be
easily removed, as can the the red pinstripes on the factory black
rims. The second owner purchased this car in 2014 with 6,000 miles.
He is a meticulous collector who drives his cars regularly and uses
the best in the business for frequent service. This GT2 has been
extremely well maintained and never abused.
The 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine is ostensibly the
same as the one found in the Turbo, but the GT2's comes with larger
turbochargers and a new intake manifold that uses expansion
chambers to cool the fuel and air mixture. The maximum boost
pressure of 20.3 psi, available for short periods only, is higher
than the Turbo's standard 14.5 psi and still higher than the
Turbo's own temporary overboost pressure of 17.4 psi. The rear
exhaust muffler and the tailpipes are made of titanium to save
weight. (Porsche says the GT2 is 320 pounds lighter than the Turbo,
at a claimed 3200 pounds.)
As a result of the underhood changes, the GT2 churns out its 530
horsepower at 6500 rpm and 505 pound-feet of torque between 2200
and 4500 rpm. Despite the power hike, Porsche claims fuel
consumption at full throttle is improved by 15 percent compared
with the Turbo.
The GT2 is the first Porsche equipped with launch control, a way of
taking off with maximum force while preventing mechanical meltdown.
The system is activated simply enough: Mash the throttle while the
car is in first gear with the clutch pedal depressed, and the revs
are automatically set to the correct level for an optimal launch.
Engage the clutch, and the GT2 jumps off the line.
This Porsche is certainly one swift machine. As soon as you tap the
throttle, the GT2 signals its intent with an angry bark from the
exhaust. Get deeper into the throttle, and the GT2 lunges forward
with an intimidating roar. Porsche claims a 0-to-62-mph time of 3.7
seconds, likely conservative, on its way to a top speed of 204
The GT2 uses a specially tuned version of Porsche's
stability-control system (Porsche Stability Management, in
Porsche-speak) as well as standard electronic damping (Porsche
Active Suspension Management). The system is disabled simply by
pushing the SC (stability control) button in the center console. If
you're brave of heart, hit the switch a second time to turn off the
traction control. With the stability and traction control off, the
GT2 has incredibly high limits but needs an experienced hand to
For most drivers, the sensible thing is to keep the electronic aids
engaged, in which case the car is actually pretty friendly. The GT2
has sensational Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes as standard
