2008 911 gt2

http://www.leftlanenews.com/2008-por...97-future.html



For those who don't know what a GT2 is, it's basically a 911 turbo w/ RWD and tuned for more hp than the Turbo.


The 996 (last gen.) gt2 made 477hp, weighed about 1440kg, but cost almost $200k!


It looks similar to the Turbo except minor changes in the front fascia and the distinct rear spoiler.


Funny that they try to camo the Porsche badge...like it makes a difference.

on the new GT3 RS, the badges are stickers to save on weight!
but i dislike porsches except for the GT3!
(or the similar RUF RGT)

As much as I like that car....It just seems to be more of the same where Porsche is concerned.

I can see big things happening between this, the supercharged vette of tomorrow, and the new viper

funny how this might be just as fast but ittl be twice as expensive
not trying to sound like I dont like porsche's (I actually plan on owning a 80's 911 sometime)

Yeah, but Dodge and Chevy admittedly cut corners to keep the price down.


Those vehicles are intended to be at a lower price, otherwise you would be seeing a 4 valve per cylinder Viper engine w/ some nice electronic driving aids


Of course, I'm sure Porsche jacks up the price a bit because they can.


It's basically a RWD 911 turbo...probably ever Porsche guy's dream.

i saw a nice car yesterday (race car really), someone converted an old beetle and put a 911 Carrera S engine in it!!! it sounded nice, and was astonishingly quick!!!
(where i work, theres a long stretch of road, about 1/2 to 3/4 mile long and road users use it like a drag strip )
