Porsche's all-new 911 GT2 is a monster! With close to 400 kW on tap, the manufacturer has proclaimed this its "fastest 911 ever".
A twin-turbocharged version of the Zuffenhausen-based manufacturer's 3.6-litre boxer unit produces 390 kW at 6 500 r/min and a peak torque figure of 680 Nm between 2 200 and 4 500 r/min.
It is claimed that this supercar is able to sprint from 0 - 100 km/h in an alarming 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 329 km/h.
Power is up by 37 kW from the previous GT2, but the latest version is 15% more fuel efficient due to a cooler fuel-air mix. Porsche claims 12.5 l/100 km on a combined cycle.
Drive is to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.
The new GT2 comes standard with Porsche's Active Suspension Management (PASM) and ceramic brakes. A titanium silencer and twin tailpipe arrangement aid weight reduction.
GT2 rides on 19-inch light alloy wheels.
Porsche SA has confirmed that a very limited number of GT2s will be made available in South Africa from late February 2008.
