Car reviews - Porsche - 911 - GT2 Coupe
Porsche goes for supercar gold with its astonishingly good 911 GT2, priced at $425K
28 Mar 2008
By GEORGIA OCONNELL
AT $425,700, Porsche's new 997-series 911 GT2 shoots directly at Ferrari territory, but the most expensive production Porsche ever sold in Australia also offers the most formidable performance statistics. With more power than the flagship 911 Turbo and no all-wheel drive system with which to harness its extra turbocharged urge, the GT2 is not for the faint-hearted. Best described as a turbocharged version of the race-ready, rear-drive GT3 coupe, the GT2 is the most track-focussed road-going 911 ever.
Model release date: 1 March 2008 to 1 January 2012

The current GT2's 996-series forebear headed in a more luxurious direction than the 993-series original of 1995, but as Porsche's highest-performing road-going 911 coupe, it was no slouch. Peak power was rated at 340kW and, with 620Nm of torque available from its twin-turbo 3.6-litre flat-six, the six-speed manual-only 996 GT2 was one of the quickest and fastest supercars in its day. In Australia, the previous GT2 was priced at $399,000.
