The Porsche GT2 is faster than ever

There are people calling the Porsche 911 GT2 series the window maker especially fans. Why do you think this is? The GT2 series is actually a 911 Turbo but without the all-wheel drive system that allows the latter to behave in a more cooperative and civilized manner, but with less weight and more power. Last month we had the opportunity to seethe new 991 Turbo and Turbo S and this is how an idea of how will the next generations of the GT2 looks like when it hits dealerships next year. The model will come with a 3.8-liter flat-six engine hanging behind the flat-six engine with direct injection tuned to deliver around 560 horsepower. This actually indicates a 40 horsepower increase over the Turbo version. All the output will be transferred to the rear wheels exclusively through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission similar to the GT3 capable of producing 469 horsepower. After the engineers have decided to eliminate the all-wheel drive system of the Turbo and use lighter materials like aluminum and carbon fiber for the body they have obtained a significant weight reduction. We can here give as example the previous GT2 which was more than 400 pounds lighter in comparison to the 911 Turbo. In the photo gallery you will find more visual information on the 911 GT2 prototype. The photos have been taken during a testing session and the model is really difficult to distinguish. Well folks, more details will probably be revealed soon, but stay tuned as we are ready to amaze you with more as soon as possible.Source: carscoop
