This is the most powerful and fastest road-going 911 GT2 ever to be sold to the public. The Porsche 996 911 GT2 was superseded by the 997-generation GT2, on sale since November 2007.
The 997 GT2 has a twin turbocharged 3.6 litre 6-cylinder engine based on 997 Turbo but Porsche achieved power increase through completely newly designed expansion intake manifold in which the distributor pipe is longer than in Turbo and the intake manifolds are shorter, a full titanium silencer is used also in GT2, even though the Porsche 911 (997) Carrera S variant has a slightly larger engine at 3.8 litres. Despite the power hike, Porsche claims fuel consumption at full throttle is improved by 15 percent compared with the Turbo.The GT2 accelerates in 3.6 seconds to 60 mph (97 km/h) and in 7.4 seconds to 100 mph (160 km/h) and has top speed of 329 km/h (204 mph). This makes it the first Porsche 911 GT2 to exceed the 200 mph (320 km/h) top speed after the 1998 Porsche 911 GT1 Race Version (which is not considered an actual Porsche 911 due to its mid-mounted engine and it only saw roads for homologation purposes). The Porsche 997 GT2 has a curb weight of 1,440 kg (3,200 lb). The only transmission choice is a 6-speed manual gearbox.
It is slowed down by huge carbon ceramic brakes held by huge yellow Porsche calipers.
The GT2 is the first Porsche equipped with launch control.
Its appearance is slightly different from its sister-car, the Porsche 911 (997) Turbo, in a few ways. It does not have fog lights in the front bumper, it has a revised front lip, it has a larger rear wing (with two small air scoops on either side), and it has a different rear bumper (now featuring titanium exhaust pipes).
This stunning example is a 2008 model and has covered only 18,500 miles from new and has had 3 former keepers.
It is finished in Guards Red (my personal favourite colour for a 911) and has silver GT2 wheels with sticky Michelin Pilot Cup Sport tyres - there is a set of 20" TechArt Formula III wheels that can be supplied with the car for an extra cost.
The interior is Club Sport spec, so it has large black Porsche bucket seats, a bright yellow rear roll cage, suede covered sports steering wheel and FIA approved Schroth 5 point safety harnesses in red.
It also has some of usual creature comforts in there too, such as:
DVD navigation package for Europe
Auto dimming interior & exterior mirrors
Green grad tinted windscreen
Park assist system
Phone with SOS function
Home function on lights
Porsche carpet mats
Sports Chrono Pack Plus
Black coloured instrument dials & stopwatch
Leather trimmed dash
Alcantara covering the roof lining, door cards, gear knob, gear gaiter, handbrake and centre console
Seeing a 997 GT2 at all is rare, to find one in Guards Red with the Club Sport interior is rarer yet.
It is has full Porsche service history:
1st service at 7178 miles at Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex 1st July 2009
2nd service at 8174 miles at Porsche Centre Bolton 22nd June 2011
2 keys are present as well as 2 Tracker fobs and all handbooks.
