    GT2 Long term test from Purely Porsche mag gets a new engine

    The 02 Porsche GT2 that magazine "GT Purely Porsche" has for long term test, had an engine failure at 1770 Mls, and received a brand new engine. A camshaft bearing had failed. At first Porsche dealer was thinking on rebuild the motor, but then a new unit was installed. Comun to see engine failures on the Boxster and 996, also heard some 996 Turbos with engine failures, but never heard of a GT2 or GT3 blowing the motor.

    porsche's builders make mistakes rarely but they do. i know an UNmodified TT that blew also. it's clear there is no systemic problem in gt2 motors, my 2 have been fine and i have heard of no others blown.

    Well, any technical thing can get broken.
    The GT2 and the 996 Turbo share the same engine, the GT3 engine is actually the same thing without Turbo.
    Never heard of an inreased engine failure rate on the 996 Turbo/GT2 or even GT3, on the contrary. I know GT3 engines with almost 400 HP and 996 Turbo/GT2 engines with more than 570 HP who worked reliable for 60000, 70000 and even 80000 km, including some (amateur) track racing. Not bad, eh?
