The newest edition to the lineup of the Type 993 911 family. The GT 2 is the brand new Turbo meant to qualify for FIA and La Mans racing in the GT 2 class. Although production is for the racing circuit, a limited number (around 100) will be for personal use on the road. For the GT 2, the usual Turbo 4WD system was dropped, along with all the other standard luxuries such as electric windows and mirrors. The 55 pounds of sound dampening was also done away with for this race car.
