    997 GT2 MKII

    Good day to all, I am a rather fresh owner of a new gt2 (it was delivered to me feb this year) confused - at least - by the opposite rumors related to a forthcoming 997 gt2 mkII. I quickly reviewed past posts but could not find anything answering the question hence I take the liberty to ask it directly: shall we see a mkII on the gt2 too?

    Cheers
    SM

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    I think that we don't know yet.
    In the past (read: 996) there have been no facelifts for the turbo, the GT2 and the GT3 (rs). However, mules.prototypes have been spotted of a GT3 rs, clearly showing that it had the new style front grille. This can be the rumored GT3 RSR street version, or "just" a facelift of the GT3 (rs). And when the GT3 gets a FL, I think it is realistic to say that the GT2 will receive a facelift as well.

    Not before MY'2011

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Thanks but isn't true that gt2 production will only last two years?

    Cheers
    SM

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Don't worry NO FACELIFT for the GT2.

    The 996 GT2 did receive a power bump in it's midcycle. I don't think the GT2 is going to be touched until 2-3 years.

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    The 996 GT3 was facelifted aswell...

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Porsche isn't the company known for facelifting a car six months after starting deliveries. For that you have to go to Subaru, for example.

    As much as I like and admire Subaru, being a prior owner, that is one thing that would bother me today. I think you can relate to that, in Switzerland I saw that they are fairly popular.

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Marek it is my own skin feeling that Porsche is going to slip into Subaru bad habit instead.....

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    The revised 911 turbo at been spotted again at the nuerburgring...likely tobe release in spring 2009.

    As said before...I doubt that the GT2 is touched that early...maybe later in 2010 as MY2011.

    See "911 turbo MKII on testdrive at Nuerburgring" http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=454447&an=0&page=0#454447

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    I have been told that 997 GT2 production will last for two years only. The first cars have been deleivered end 2007 so I like to think production will be over by end of 2009 which case eventual face lifting during 2010 should contemplate other models but not gt2. This remains unconfirmed, so just an hope of mine

    cheers

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Ste, Gt2 MKI production will stop next year,then after a few time there will be a GT2 MKII

    There will be MKII for all 997 family,from 997 C2 to 997 GT2,enclosed 997GT3,Gt3 RS,Turbo etc...or at least this is what a good source tell me..

    ciau

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Should this be the case I would feel betrayed by my OPC...

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    i just saw a facelift turbo a few days ago driving through Stuttgart city right in front of me. it was dark blue with black wheels. there wil def be a GT2 MKII, just a matter of time. Just like the GT3 as well...
    IMO, we ll see the turbo, then the GT3 and finally the GT2...

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    GT3SM, I know how you feel, as a MK1 997 GT3 owner I have the same feelings, but will the new car in any way change the qualities of the car you now have? No, it won't. It's all in your head.

    Realistically, you have another two years before you see a facelifted GT2 of this generation, if ever. I know I still have another year left till the facelifted GT3's start appearing. I won't love my car any less, basically the only thing that could be bothering us is not being able to say "I have the newest possible model you can have."

    If you keep the GT2 for ten years, it will no longer matter and it will be heavily respected, just like the 993 (any model) today, for example.

    It's like if the 2,7 RS owners complained that they got overtaken by thirty-five years of newer Porsche models. But could they care less, or what?

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    I share your point of view Marek nevertheless I would like to kick Porsche management in the aXX anyway for all these unecessary modifications which do not bring any real added value at the end but make you a poorer man in respect of car's residual value. Nevertheless intention is keeping GT2 as long as I can afford it, I gelously keep one of the last 1998 993 Turbo too.

    Cheers

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    993 Turbo, well, that's the first 911 I was ever in, one can never forget. The owner said it was tuned by Techart to around 500 hp, there was a great big punch in the back when he floored it in second gear.

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    Right, mine has standard m64/60S engine fitted in factory alongwith Turbo S complete aerokit. I could sell GT2 someday but I would feel really really sorry to abandon this one:

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    now running 507 cv after Cargraphic intervention on the engine:

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    I know that car ...I like a lot the comlete wood makassar interior !

    Re: 997 GT2 MKII

    So you're a forced-induction kind of guy. Now a 993 GT2 for the perfect trio.
