The 911 evolution continues: GT2 spied
25 August 2006

Porsche's tweaking of the 911 continues unabated - here's the next-generation GT2, spied during tests at the Nordschleife.

The new machine could be one of the fastest 911s ever. It's said to use a tweaked 997 Turbo motor, producing up to 520bhp, 47bhp more than the current Turbo. And since it's rear-wheel drive only and features 'GT' weight-saving techniques, it could be more than 100kg lighter than the regular model.

The motorsport-influenced GT2 will only be available with a six-speed manual gearbox. But unlike the first version, it's not an homologation special - it's a road car only.

Our Verdict

The Porsche 911 is a sublime all-purpose sports car

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
