The 154 curves of the Nordschlife are the ideal environment for a model like this Porsche 911 GT2 2017. The most extreme and radical of the Porsche 991.2 of current generation is faced with rudeness at the Nürburgring, and from here, we smell a new record…

nearly a decade of Porsche 911 GT2 (997): at that time, its 530 HP marked a record in the mythical circuit of German, 7 minutes and 32 seconds, with Walter Röhrl at the wheel. Shortly after that came a 997 GT2 RS with 620 HP, which would put the bar even higher, announcing a time of 7 minutes and 18 seconds.

Years later, with major developments, it is more than likely that this new Porsche 911 GT2 spray all the records, even reducing the seven minutes in the Green Hell, which would put the level of a Porsche 918 Spyder. We will wait and see, but it is clear that the future 911 GT2 -or 911 GT2 RS, as its name ultimate is not yet clear – it will be really fast on the Nordschleife.

Outwardly, the Porsche 911 GT2 2017 goes much beyond what is already known in the model. And will also be more brutal that the next Porsche 911 GT3 2017, with a huge rear wing, flared wheel arches to accommodate extra width of roads, quad exit exhaust, and a aerodynamics specific that is complete with its rear diffuser and spoiler lower front, very prominent, and is made of carbon fiber.

Located in the rear position, the new 911 GT2 will have a boxer engine biturbo six-cylinder and 3.8-liter, reaching new heights of power: will far outweigh the 600 HP, and even it is fairly likely a figure close to 700 HP. To complete the specifications of this monster difficult to tame, will be a propulsion rear with rear axle directional.

Of the grip to the asphalt will tire semi-slick Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, on alloy wheels with monotuerca central. Its interior will be quite spartan and again very racing: in some of the pictures you can appreciate its safety cage. The new Porsche 911 GT2 will be the culmination of the current generation 991.2, and will be on sale in the 2017.
