Next Porsche GT2 to Boast 552 HP

The next-generation Porsche 911 GT2 Turbo will reportedly pack 552 hp from its 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, flat-six engine. 

The sports car will be based on the 911 Turbo once again and is scheduled to make its official debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Its powerplant will be mated to a dual-clutch automatic gearbox and is expected to hit 62 mph in close to 3 seconds.

The new GT2 will also dump its four-wheel drive system for rear-wheel drive but will feature a four-wheel steer system. Following up on the GT2 Turbo in 2015 will be an even more powerful, track-ready GT2 RS with upwards of 620 hp.
