Today is about the new GT2, the most powerful road-going 911 ever. It has 523bhp, 501lb ft of torque, accelerates from 0-62mph in 3.7secs, to 100mph in 7.4, and tops out at 204mph, the first 911 to pass 200mph. It costs £131,070, and Porsche reckons the GT2 is the most highly evolved 911 yet. Walter drove it round the Nordschleife in 7m 32s.
For a road car, the GT2 is astonishing. Porsche and Ferrari are currently locked in a battle for engineering supremacy, but this car – and the 430 Scuderia – confirm that the goalposts have now been moved so far, you need a telescope to see them. It uses the same bodyshell and 3.6-litre horizontally opposed engine as the Turbo, but beyond that, the detail gets very detailed indeed.
