    997 GT2 pictures

    Today I managed to take some pictures after rinsing off the dirt and salt from yesterday's "excursion" (pictures are in the gallery). I have now driven the car in most winter conditions with heavy rain, cold temperature (-10*C) and also light snow. This car can be used all year round I don't miss the all wheel drive of my previous turbo so far. Even in the wet the traction and grip are quite good and the car is very neutral before it starts sliding almost in "slow motion".

    Despite their size the Nokians can handle standing water quite well. Sport Cups would be no good under these circumstances.

    You can also find a picture of the scratched backrest I mentioned last time. To me that doesn't look like a clear coat but I am no paint or carbon fiber expert.

    Enjoy.

    hey oab, would love to get some more info on performance difference between the 997 turbo and the 997 gt2....

    i have a gt2 on order, delivery march and currently have a 997 turbo, which i will keep.

    what can i expect ? i hope a lot

    Re: 997 GT2 pictures

    just had a look at your gallery.....i am sure these scratches can be buffed out. its only on the layer thats covering the carbon.

    why do you put the turbo wheels on it ? cause of the winter tires ?

    These are the only OEM wheels available with winter tyres

    I can't really compare it to a 997 Turbo cause I have never driven one long enough nor in direct comparison to a GT2. My previous car was a 996 Turbo S and the GT2 feels much faster, the engine much more "alert" with a stronger pull from lower revs. I suspect the real gain on a 997 Turbo will only come at higher speeds or on a track. Like the GT3 this car is more than just straight line performance.

    Nice pics in your gallery, OAB. As Fritz alluded to on another thread, that indeed looks like CF with a clear coat on the seat backs. Those scratches are probably buffable if desired.

    You must chomping at the bit for spring to come.
