Porsche is still busy testing the 911 GT2, which will probably be the most powerful version of the current-generation 911 when it is released.
Though it may appear akin to the 911 GT3 RS, a few key traits give away this car’s true identity. First are larger cooling vents in the rear bumper, suggesting that this car is turbocharged. A dual exhaust is also present, unlike the center-exit exhaust found on the 911 GT3 RS.
The GT2 is historically the most powerful 911 model, and considering the latest 911 Turbo S makes 580 horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six, the GT2 is likely to put out around 620 hp. There’s also the possibility, considering the 991-generation is already late in its life cycle, that Porsche will simply skip straight to a GT2 RS model, which could put out something closer to 700 hp.
Canards on the front bumper and a large rear wing also point to this car being the more hardcore GT2 RS model, rather than just a GT2.
Porsche’s seven-speed PDK will almost certainly be standard equipment, while us enthusiasts are hopeful that a six-speed manual will be an option.
