2008 Porsche 911 GT2: Denver, Colorado

Location: Denver, Colorado

Odometer:  8,900 Miles

This is a 2008 Porsche 997 GT2.   This is a very rare car built between 2008 -2012.    Only 194 units were sold in the United States and 19 units in Canada.     It was based on the 911 Turbo, and uses a similar twin-turbocharged engine, but features numerous upgrades, including engine upgrades, larger brakes, and stiffer suspension calibration. The GT2 is significantly lighter than the Turbo due to its use of rear-wheel drive instead of all-wheel drive, and the lightening or removal of interior components. As a result, the GT2 was the most expensive and the highest trim level within the 911 lineup.

The new 997 GT2 engine is based on the existing 3.6 L (220 cu in) flat-6 engine, but now features twin variable geometry turbochargers, which generate 530 PS (390 kW; 523 hp) at 6500 rpm and 680 N·m (500 lb·ft) at 2200 rpm. The GT2 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and on to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.6 seconds, and has a maximum top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h). This makes it the third Porsche to exceed the 322 km/h (200 mph) barrier, with the exception of the 1998 Porsche 911 GT1, a homologated race car for street use.

The appearance of the 997 GT2 once again differs from its sister car, the 997 Turbo. It has a revised front lip, newly designed rear wing with two small air inlets on either side, and a revised rear bumper featuring titanium exhaust pipes and shark fin outlets.
