Porsche today announced that the 911 GT2 will make its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Also the company announced that the fastest production-911 of all times will be available as of February 2008 in the USA at a retail price of US$ 191,700.
This 530-hp super-sportscar is powered by a biturbo engine featuring a new expansion intake manifold to reduce fuel consumption under full load. It makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 3.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 204 mph. It has an average fuel consumption of just 12.5 litres/100 km (equal to 22.6 mpg imp) in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), thus offering a level of fuel economy regarded as quite impossible in this performance class just a few years ago.
The 3.6-litre boxer engine achieves its maximum output of 530 bhp at 6500 rpm, with maximum torque of 680 Newton-metres maintained consistently between 2,200 and 4,500 rpm. With its unladen weight of 1,440 kg or 3,175 lb, finally, the 911 GT2 offers a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.72 kg/6.00 lb per horsepower.
