Porsche introduced their range-topping GT2 at the Detroit Motor show in 2001. This car is essentially a widebodied GT3 with a tricked up turbo engine. The car is light, powerful and rear-wheel drive. Suspension comes directly from the GT3. The springs and dampers, anti-roll bars, ride-height and camber settings are all fully adjustable, allowing owners to optimise their set-up for a particular circuit. In line with the GT2's no-nonsense approach Porsche discarded traction control and stability management. Meanwhile, the engine was another evolution of the GT1-derived 3.6 as used in the GT3 and Turbo in 2001. By running high-flow turbo's at 2 bar and upping compression to 9.4:1, output rose from 420 to 462bhp at 5700rpm.Several cosmetic upgrades include an extended wraparound chin spoiler, enlarged trio of ducts carved from the nose, a distinctive moustache at the leading edge of the front bonnet (improving airflow) and a fixed rear spoiler with uprights housing their own individual ducts.
The GT2 weighs in at 1440kg, 100kg lighter than the 996 Turbo which, combined with its extra 42bhp, gives the lightweight model a higher power-to-weight ratio than the fabled 959 Sport of 1987. Top speed is claimed to be 196mph, 0-60 requiring just 4 seconds whilst 0-100 takes 8.5.
The vehicle offered by DK is a 2002 model presented in black with black leather recaro seats (silver backs). The cabin is equipped with a stereo (6CD & upgraded), electric windows, air conditioning, red seat belts, black carpets, carbon dash surround and carbon door inserts. Externally the car benefits from yellow calipers, a carbon "moustache" and carbon ceramic brakes (PCCB) - these weighing in at over 18kg less than the equivalent steel discs. The Cermaics are resistant to brake fade and corrosion; they are also more responsive than steel equivalents.
This GT2 has only had two owners from new and covered 26,000 miles. The car is complimented by a full main dealer service history.
