Porsche 997 GT2 in final development stages
With only the Porsche badge missing, the 997 GT2 is in its final development stages. Set to be unveiled in November, the new GT2 will have an output of 530 hp and 3086 lbs in weight.
The GT2 will feature a semi-automatic DSG transmission. For the first time in a 911 model the top speed will exceed the 200 mph mark.
The GT2 will inherit Turbo’s exhaust turbochargers with variable turbine geometry, featured for the first time in a gasoline engine model. At the heart of that technology are adjustable guide blades, which direct the engine exhaust flow variably and precisely onto the turbine wheel of the exhaust turbocharger. The principle of variable turbine geometry unites the advantages of small and large exhaust turbochargers and leads to a discernable improvement in flexibility and acceleration, particularly at low speeds.
