Porsche 911 GT2

Now that we have already seen the new-generation Porsche 911 Turbo, Porsche took out the hardcore version out for a testing session. A 911 GT2 prototype – also known as the “Widow maker” – was caught testing today on the Nürburgring test track.

As you can see, the prototype is almost undisguised and we can clearly see the wider wheel arches in the front and the much wider rear fenders with massive air intakes from the 911 Turbo. Nice attempt at hiding the GT2?s real air intakes, but we see through your sneaky disguise, Porsche. The GT2 will also get a center-mounted dual-exhaust system, which is inspired by the GT3 version, and a big fixed rear spoiler.

Under the hood, we expect to see Porsche install a turbocharged 3.8 liter six-cylinder engine that will deliver 560 to 570 horsepower to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. With this drivetrain in tow, we expect the GT2 to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and up to a top speed of about 200 mph, making it the fastest production 911 in its storied history.
