The power unit featured in the new Porsche 911 GT2 is a high-performance evolution version of the six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine first appearing in the 911 Turbo. The two turbochargers now have an even higher air throughput allowing an increase in charge pressure under full load to 2 bar. Output of the 3.6-litre power unit is now 340 kW (462 bhp) at 5700 rpm, that is 10 per cent more than on the 911 Turbo. Maximum torque of 620 Newton metres or 457 lb-ft comes at a low 3500 rpm and remains consistently available until 4500 rpm. All this enormous power from the engine of the GT2 goes to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.
The Porsche 911 GT2 combines the sporting character of the 996 911 GT3 with the power and straight line performance of the 911 Turbo. The fastest member of the 911 family, the 911 GT2 gets power of 462 bhp @ 5700 rpm and torque of 457 ft lbs @ 3500 rpm. It accelerates to 60 mph in a mere 4.0 seconds, reaching the 126 mph after just 12.9 seconds. And this urge for ongoing pace and action does not come to an end until the car has reached its top speed of no less than 196 mph.
This 2003 Porsche 996 GT2 auctioned on PCarMarket right now once held the title of being the most powerful Porsche 911 ever produced thanks to its twin-turbocharged Mezger engine sending 462 horsepower to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox. It is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and comes with a black leather interior completed with optional deviated stitching, additional leather trim, carbon fiber inlays, and red seatbelts.
