We found some brand new spy shots of the the upcoming next-generation Porsche 911 GT2. Enjoy!
What you will find hanging behind the rear axle is the latest 911 Turbo’s 3.8-liter flat-six engine with direct injection tuned to deliver somewhere around 560-horses, an increase of at least 40hp over the Plain Jane Turbo. All those ponies are expected to be delivered to the rear wheels exclusively through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission – just like on the 469hp GT3.
The elimination of the Turbo’s all-wheel drive system together with the use of lighter materials (think aluminum and carbon fiber) for and under the body will result in a significant weight reduction – for example, the previous GT2 was more than 400 pounds (190kg, to be precise) lighter than the 911 Turbo!
