The Porsche 911 GT2 was spied in July last year, and it was uncertain when the car would be introduced. However, that’s about to change as fresh reports claim this car could be ready by the end of 2017.
When the 911 GT2 was spotted at the Nurburgring, the powertrain was a mystery. However, reports now suggest that the existing 3.8-litre biturbo flat six-cylinder from the Turbo model will be used. Furthermore, it is claimed that this unit will be broadly retuned to bump up the output from 580bhp to roughly 650bhp. This motor will use a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (no manual option), to send power to the rear wheels.
According to sources, Porsche tried to increase the power output to 700bhp, but was unable to do so without relying on water injection tech. The pictures reveal the test car dressed up with a lot of body kit, a large wing and huge intakes in the front and side panels.
