The Porsche 911 GT2 was a high performance sports car built by the German manufacturer Porsche from 1993 to 2012. It was based on the 911 Turbo, and uses a similar twin-turbocharged engine, but features numerous upgrades, including engine upgrades, larger brakes, and stiffer suspension calibration. The GT2 is significantly lighter than the Turbo due to its use of rear-wheel drive instead of all-wheel drive, and the lightening or removal of interior components. As a result, the GT2 was the most expensive and the highest trim level within the 911 lineup.

The Porsche 996 GT2 was superseded by the 997 GT2 in 2007 after a brief hiatus, with cars arriving at dealerships in November after an official launch at the 62nd Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new 997 GT2 engine is based on the existing 3.6 L (220 cu in) flat-6 engine, but now features twin variable geometry turbochargers, which generate 530 PS (390 kW; 523 hp) at 6500 rpm and 680 N·m (500 lb·ft) at 2200 rpm. The GT2 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and on to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.6 seconds, and has a maximum top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h). This makes it the third Porsche to exceed the 322 km/h (200 mph) barrier, with the exception of the 1998 Porsche 911 GT1, a homologated race car for street use.

The American auto magazine Motor Trend tested a 2008 Porsche 911 GT2, achieving a 0-60 mph time of 3.3 seconds,[6] and a quarter mile of 11.3 seconds at 129.1 mph (207.8 km/h).

The GT2 also recorded a braking distance from 60 to 0 mph of 98 feet (30 m), and 1.10g of lateral grip.

The appearance of the 997 GT2 once again differs from its sister car, the 997 Turbo. It has a revised front lip, newly designed rear wing with two small air inlets on either side, and a revised rear bumper featuring titanium exhaust pipes and shark fin outlets.

German Porsche test driver Walter Röhrl recently lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife on a public day in 7 minutes, 32 seconds in the new 997 GT2.
