2008 Porsche 911 GT2

It really doesn’t get much more flashy (at least among Porsches) than a Speed Yellow GT2. Beginning with the 993 Porsche began to civilize the diabolical behaviors of its 911 Turbo. By adding all-wheel drive and twin-turbocharging the Turbo retained its prodigious performance, but it now came in a more user friendly form. For the vast majority of drivers it was now faster as well since its limits could be approached more readily. Let’s be clear though, even with these added dynamic improvements the Turbo was still a very powerful machine with a rearward weight balance. After the introduction of all wheel-drive it didn’t take long for Porsche to return to its Turbo roots with a rear-drive model, the GT2. Naturally, Porsche was not only interested in running an all-wheel drive 911 in its motorsports competition and the GT2 satisfied the necessary homologation requirements for a rear-drive racer. But these are not just a rear-drive version of the Turbo. The GT2 is lighter, more powerful, and fitted with suspension and braking upgrades to suit these changes. Since its inception, the GT2 has been the ultimate 911 only recently surpassed by the GT2 RS, which in traditional RS fashion increased the weight savings and power level to produce a truly special machine. For our perusal here, we have a Speed Yellow 2008 Porsche 911 GT2, located in New York, with Black interior and 14,063 miles on it.

The original 993 GT2 has become a prohibitively expensive car with auctions stretching close to and sometimes exceeding $1 million. It is probably the most expensive modern 911 there is and being the only air-cooled GT2 we shouldn’t be surprised in the least by that reality. For the 996 and 997, however, the GT2 can be had much more reasonably considering the serious levels of performance available to those capable of exploiting these cars’ capabilities. This one comes from the first year the GT2 was available for the 997 model and even with its high asking price of $138K it provides an alternative to similarly-priced examples of the GT3 RS. I guess all that is left is to decide whether you prefer forced induction or not.
