New Porsche 911 GT2 Will Be PDK Only

Last Updated: March 16, 2017By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

A new Porsche 911 GT2 is on its way. Porsche GT vehicle head Andreas Preuninger confirmed it previous year, but since then heard anything new about it, just that it’ll be turbocharged. Now, we found out that the GT2 that is coming will be rear-wheel drive like the previous one, but  first time now, it’ll get a standard PDK gearbox, so there won’t be manual option.

It was confirmed by Porsche CEO Oliver Blume the rear-drive GT2 is available and that it will only be selling with a dual-clutch gearbox. Blume refuses to go into more details, but he said that the GT2 will be a real monster.

 “For the GT2 it’s very typical to have big power combined with the turbo engine”

 “For the GT2 it’s very typical to have big power combined with the turbo engine,” said Blume. “Today we can’t talk about the power, but when we launch the car I think you will see at which level we can get to with the car. And we’re still working at it.”
The 2011 GT2 RS made 620 horsepower–90 more than the modern 911 Turbo S’s 530 horsepower. It’ is senseless to expect horsepower levels on the new GT2 RS that overstep its antecedent’s pretty dramatic.

Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger seems more shy and insecure about the upcoming GT2.

“There has been a GT2 before. It was a success. We’re a company that likes to sell cars, so, that adds up in maybe another project,” Preuninger said. “That’s all I can tell you.”

Knowing that there is what seems to be a GT2 prototype testing at the Nurburgring, we think that the car will be revealed pretty soon. We can assure you that it’ll be really, really fast.
