    997 GT2?

    Will there be a 997 GT2? I hope so

    Re: 997 GT2?

    We dont know yet.. But i have heard that it will not be a 997 GT2. Just the GT3 Rs

    Re: 997 GT2?

    Well the black spy pictures of a GT3 with a wide body (unlike the narrow body white car in the brochure)which looks production ready posted on a few sites gives them the chassis elements so I suppose that putting the TT motor, rear arches with vents and intercoolers would be relatively easy-even if developing it with the right suspension/ components settings isn't. I have some doubts whether their marketing people see a niche? After all for track work the GT3RS will satisfy most and a 4wd TT will be a better road car. So unless people start putting deposits down, and bearing in mind the low numbers of 996GT2's sold, I personally wouldn't hold my breath.

    Mind you it would be a real challenge to drive, wouldn't it!

    I heard that Porsche officials seem to have denied to some journalists and even to dealers that a 997 GT2 is coming.
    The latest rumor I heard is that a 997 GT2 is planned but no release date or specs are available. I'm pretty sure that it wouldn't be a problem for Porsche to develop a 997 GT2 in a very short time frame because they already have the basis in the shape of the 997 Turbo and GT3(RS).
    But Porsche marketing is a mystery to me, so maybe yes, maybe no, maybe...

    Like it has been said above, what about the widebody black "GT3" we saw being tested a few months ago? That could certainly be our car?

    Re: 997 GT2?

    Porsche engineering can " reverse engineer " in their sleep a rwd 997 GT2 based on their vast 996GT3/996 GT2 /997 GT3 development experience . As almost always is the case , it's the Porsche MBAs , not the PhDs who determine what we get and when, if ever.

    Re: 997 GT2?

    NO, there wont be a GT2.

    maybe this means that the turbo S will follow the 964/993 tradition and be more special and sporty than just "powerkit and PCCB as standard".

    do you know the reason? IMO 996 GT2 sales haven't been too bad in the beginning. or ist that there's a limit to the 3,6l engine... 480HP for the turbo, around 510-520HP for the turbo S... so GT2 needs at least 550HP to set itself apart (yes i know that 800HP are possible, but maybe not by PAG's reliability standards).

    Re: 997 GT2?

    A wild guess: they won't make it because of the improved AWD on the new turbo (PTM).

    I like the idea of no GT2 because it leaves more room for a lighter/more HP Turbo S (with PDK please!)

    Re: 997 GT2?

    i'm sorry guys, havnt been on the up and up lately, i always see you guys talking about PDK, but alas....i dont really know what it is, can anyone explain for the slow learner over here?

    Basically the same thing as VW's DSG. Porsche's answer to SMG and F1.

    A more "tame" guess: They won't make it because of the questionable demand for it. But I agree, if no GT2 speeds up the 997TTS and/or PK and PDK releases, then cool.

    Re: 997 GT2?

    As Porsche seem to be releasing all the usual C2, C2S, C4, C4S, TT, GT3 variants by the week, I think the 997 GT2 is a certainty.

    according to www.auto-motor-und-sport.de a GT2 is definitely in the making.

    Re: 997 GT2?

    This is a little off the subject, but when you guys were talking about the gt2 and gt3 you mentioned a gt3 with a wider body than the one in the brochure. I have been waiting for more information about the new 997 turbo and was wondering if anyone knew whether or not dealers had any brochures or any other information on the turbo. Thanks.
