Unleashed in 2007, the Porsche 997 GT2 derived its name from the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) racing class for which it was built. Based on the 997 Turbo, the GT2 was revised to make it even more capable and was just the third production Porsche to break the 200 mph barrier.
Courtesy of changes such as modified variable-vane turbochargers, a new intake manifold, and titanium exhaust system, the GT2’s 3.6-liter flat-six developed 530 hp at 6,500 rpm and 502 lbs./ft. of torque at a low 2,200 rpm. Rear-wheel drive only, other weight-saving measures included rear-seat delete and strategic use of lightweight materials. Blisteringly fast, Motor Trend tested the GT2 in February 2008, and achieved 0–60 mph in 3.4 seconds, and a quarter-mile time of 11.3 seconds on the way to a claimed 204 mph top speed.
One of 194 exported to the US by Porsche, this 2008 GT2 is finished in sinister Black over a full black leather interior with desirable sports bucket seats. Displaying 9,005 miles at the time of cataloguing, this unmodified GT2 presents well throughout with the coolant pipes stated to be pinned as a preventative measure during a June 2017 service performed at Porsche of Colorado Springs. Accompanied by books, tools, and keys, this GT2 offers the opportunity to own one of Porsche’s most powerful and thrilling 911 models that is critically still mated to a manual gearbox.
