For the 997 generation, Porsche decided to bring back its
range-topping GT2 model with a bang. Only 194 were sold in the US
in 2008 with 19 going to Canada. Porsche has never published
exactly how many of these cars were built globally but the GT2 is
one of the more limited 911 models in recent history.
The 997 GT2 is nowhere near as fast as the current 991 generation
GT2 RS. Still, the GT2 remains one of the quickest 911 models ever
produced as well as one of the most desirable for purists. The car
is powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six producing 523
horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. Yes, you read that right, this
911 from 2008 is more powerful than a brand-new GT3 RS. Not only is
the GT2 powerful, but power is sent to the rear wheels exclusively
through a six-speed manual transmission - no PDK or automatic was
With all of the power going out through a manual transmission, the
GT2 was quite lairy, giving a reputation as a widow maker. Unlike
newer RS models, which have all sorts of driver aids, the 997 GT2
required a highly skilled driver to reach its full potential. All
GT2 models came standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management
(PASM) but if you turned off the traction control and other drivers
aids, it would become more than a handful to drive.
Even by today's standards, the GT2 is blisteringly fast with a
quoted 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds, though some outlets have
recorded a time as low as 3.3 seconds. The engine was based on the
unit found in the 911 Turbo but with twin variable geometry
turbochargers. This was also the third Porsche road car ever to be
able to achieve over 200 mph with a 204 mph top speed.
Although the GT2 may not produce the same noise as one of the
normally aspirated cars, its turbocharged architecture and rarity
in the US make it one of the most unique 911 models on the
