The Porsche 911 GT2
Porsche is one of the very few carmakers whose commitment to motorsport is not prompted by marketing or commercial reasons. With them, it's passion pure and simple. Here is the product of this passion, the 911 GT2.
In its racing version it fully meets the requirements of GT2 class racing. The cars driven in these events bear a strong similarity to production models. The only thing that counts in this class is the quality of the engineering derived from the roadgoing versions, and the driver's enthusiasm. The GT2 comes with two exhaust-driven turbochargers with intercoolers, a displacement of 3,600 cm3, 316 kW (430 HP), and rear-wheel drive. The GT2 is a thoroughbred racing car in engineering terms, but remains a not so distant cousin of the 911 Turbo.
