The guy who owns one of the seven right-hand drive 993 GT2s says it’s a car that looks like it’s gonna do you in, drives like it’s gonna do you in, and that’s just how a fast 911 should be.
You like the 997 GT2, right? Of course you do. How about one with an engine tuned by SharkWerks to produce 775 horses at the crank?
You know the Porsche 911 GT2, right? The 523 horsepower, 210 mph, rear-drive ultra 911? It's the kind of car that's so rare, so desirable, so expensive you hardly want to stand too close to it lest you scratch it. Well, here's a guy who's rallying one.
The Porsche 911 GT2 is the most extreme of all the Porsche 911s, and the 993 generation is the one that started the trend of roided-up, rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive Porsche insanity. Like any barely-road legal car it belongs on the track, but somehow it looks fantastic on the street.
We recently saw a driver amazingly save his Porsche 911 GT2 RS from a huge crash at the Nürburgring. Well, this Porsche GT2 driver wasn't so lucky.
This is a "widowmaker" Porsche 911 GT2 on the Freies Bergrennen hillclimb in 2012. The driver loses the back end on the narrow mountain road. How he manages to keep the car out of a massive crash is beyond me.
Remember when Chris Harris drag-raced a Porsche 911 GT2 against a Ducati 1199 Panigale? Rewatch that (spoiler: the Duc blew away the Porsche to 130 mph). But can the Porsche regain ground by 200 mph? Watch and find out.
Chris Harris could drift a block of concrete and regularly makes quick work of some of the world's trickiest road courses in the world's wickedest cars. It's therefore amusing to me that he gets so nervous about a little old quarter-mile.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the fastest, most powerful road-going Porsche ever to slither out of Weissach on its belly. The Renault Megane RS is 250 horsepowers' worth of Volkswagen GTI bait. Here they are together on the Nürburgring. And, go.
The first near-crash for this 911 GT2 RS driver is the predictable response to underestimating how tough the Nürburgring is, especially in a super Porsche. The second near-crash comes after sitting there for a few seconds, probably trying to identify that soiled smell suddenly wafting through the cabin.
This is the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. It's a 620HP, Nurburgring-devouring beast. Seven minutes, eighteen seconds 'round the 'Ring to be precise. It's the fastest road-going Porsche ever and exactly what all those Cayennes have been paying for.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS s a stripped-down race version of the already powerful GT2. Loose-lipped VIPs claim the carbon fiber hood and gold-bedazzled wheeled car boasts 620 HP, a 3.2-second 0-to-60 MPH time, and a Nissan-besting Nürburgring lap time.
A 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 in rural Nevada. I took this two years ago while driving from Los Angeles to Pahrump. I'd tell you what I did here, but then I'd have to kill you.
Porsche tuner TechArt has created the GTstreet RS, a hardcore version of the already-insane 630 HP GTstreet. Even though the current 530 HP Porsche 911 GT2 is the fastest production 911 ever, some people just want more. So, the GTstreet RS takes a standard GT2 and applies horsepower, resulting in a 700 HP monster…
We went to the Porsche event with high hopes of amazing unveils for the never before seen Porsche Boxster RS60 Spyder, Porsche RS Spyder, Porsche Cayenne GTS and Porsche 911 GT2. Imagine our disappointment when we got there and realized we've seen them all before, unlike the Porsche press release had implied. About…
Porsche just dropped a presser on us which has us scratching our heads. Any time we read words like "Porsche" and "First" and "Shown" in a press release, we expect the things contained therein to be, you know, Porsches being shown for the first time. In this case, that's maybe only partially true. In breathless…
Porsche dropped some b-roll of its latest widowmaker, the lightweight 911 GT2, destined for unveiling tomorrow at the Frankfurt Messe. The world's motoring press and a few close friends will get the first up-close look at the first stock 200-mph+ 911, powered by a turbocharged 3.6-liter boxer six with Porsche's…
