The 2014 Porsche 911 GT2 has been spotted for the first time at the Nurburgring. The current version of the 911 GT2 made its world debut at the2010 Moscow Auto Show and had a limited production run of 500 units.
The 2014 GT2 is expected to follow the tradition of the GT2 series by inheriting the engine from the current 911 Turbo S but in a higher state of tune. This means it will feature a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six cylinder engine that is likely to produce in excess of 560PS and 700Nm of torque. It is unclear if the GT2 will stick to the conventional six-speed manual transmission or opt for the new seven-speed dual-clutch PDK unit found on the Turbo S. The 2014 GT2 though is likely to get advanced technologies like the four-wheel steering and engine stop-start technology.
Like the outgoing GT2 the new variant is also expected to get only the bare essentials in terms of comfort features but will be heavy on performance enhancing attributes like racing bucket seats and a balance improving roll cage. On the exterior the GT2 looks to have inherited design cues from the current GT3, but the widened wheel arches, wider rear tyres and the new side intakes distinguishes the GT2 from its naturally aspirated sibling.
The performance packed version from the 911 family is expected to debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next March. The notorious RS version of the already pumped up GT2 is also scheduled for 2015 and is expected to outperform the existing 620PS GT2 RS.
