For Sale: 2008 Porsche 911 in Jacksonville, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 mph.

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 tame it.

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 equipment.
