The intricacy of the entire design of the fabulous 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 was described throughout the Porsche factory brochure that stood alone for this model and counted over 100 pages in presentation. Brochure? It really is more of a book that goes into the drivetrain, chassis, safety, comfort, personalization, technical data, summary, and more. It is concluded that with the 2008 Porsche 911 GT2, your only weakness will be the strength of your resolve to push this machine as intended.

The Porsche 911 GT2 was said by the factory to be “the exception to the rule.” It clearly exceeded everything that had gone before. Porsche disclosed that “designing a 911 GT2 requires a new approach to old ideas.” It meant that the designers and engineers had to question convention, cross the limits, and think beyond the norm. They remained committed to not limiting the car to road or track, straight or bend, comfort or sports performance. It meant having the freedom to leave what was known and explore new possibilities. When all was accomplished and the Porsche 911 GT2 was released to the public, it was the most powerful road-going 911 ever offered.

The source of the power is the 530 horsepower, 3.6-liter flat six-cylinder “boxer” engine that is dry sump, twin-turbocharged with Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) that allows faster response at lower speeds, VarioCam Plus, and an expansion intake system. For many, these state-of-the-art mechanical features will mean little without proper research, but all will become quite clear on the road. It provides a driving experience and engine sound that could only be conceived in the 911 GT2.

The rear-wheel drive is provided through a six-speed manual transmission and the dynamics are reported to be similar to what one would experience in a race car. Among the many performance standards is Launch Assistant for maximum acceleration from a standing start, Porsche Active Suspension Management that provides variable damping for a sporty, yet comfortable drive, Porsche Stability Management to control lateral and longitudinal dynamics with Safety Control and Traction Control that can be disabled in two stages for a “natural” driving experience. This means that the car can be enjoyed to maximum effect on the race track or the road should you possess the skills.

Racing developed, and standard on the 911 GT2, are fantastic Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (four-wheel disc) that are made from specially treated carbon fiber and nearly 50-percent lighter than the comparable metal alternatives. Sport bucket seats provide the perfect seating position that is essential in a machine with the performance capabilities of the 911 GT2.

These items only scratch the surface of the many extras that are standard on the 911 GT2 platform. Power, torque, and acceleration are all in plentiful supply. Nothing can match the energy, except the car’s design. A single glance is all it takes to realize the fact. Aerodynamic considerations create a very low drag coefficient as well as positive front and rear downforce. Behind the wheel, you’ll find better grip, better directional stability and exceptional handling.

This is an unmodified example that is original throughout and has convenience features that include air conditioning, AM/FM/CD; power windows, steering, and brakes. The odometer displays less than 8,000 original miles, books are included, and the colors are reported to be a rare combination of Carrera White over black.

One of approximately 200 Porsche 911 GT2’s brought into the United States in 2008; this is a breathtaking driving machine that is a technical and mechanical tour de force. Porsche pushed their limits in creating this respected piece of equipment; now is the time to discover yours. Respect required – the 911 GT2.
