The long-awaited and highly anticipated 2017 Porsche 911 GT2 has been spied testing at the Nurburgring ahead of a suspected debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.
Looking at this test mule, we can confidently say the 991-generation GT2 will feature a large rear wing and large front intakes flanked by prominent winglets on the front bumper. The rear bumper seen here looks rather unofficial but houses two large single exhaust outlets, similar to the outgoing 997-generation GT2.
From a technical standpoint, the 911 GT2 will be a marvel. Porsche’s 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six has been rumoured to be producing close to 700 hp in what will be the hottest 911 model ever, which will be joined by the automaker’s rear-axle steering system for additional stability. It’s not clear if a six-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch automatic will be offered in the car, though it seems possible Porsche could make both available.
The race-style centrelock alloy wheels pictured here are shod in sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber. Other racing-inspired equipment is also present, including a roll cage where the back seats would normally be and some nice, hard bucket seats.
More information on the 991-generation Porsche 911 GT2 should become available as its debut date nears.
