The original Widowmaker- 911 GT2 (996)

What do you get when Porsche crosses a GT3 and the Turbo? Yeah, the GT2. Porsche's GT cars are names after the FIA homologation classes they have been planning to participate in. However for enthusiasts the GT cars are among the most sought after. See 996 GT2 Press Release HERE.

Porsche returns to the RS name - 996 GT3 RS [Release]

The new 911 GT3 RS forms a basis for motor sport (July 2003)

Lower Weight, even more fun to drive Continuing the tradition of the "RS" models
Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart continues its new-model offensive with a
further version of the 911: due to be launched in October, the 911 GT3 RS is an extremely
sporty model with the power and purist qualities of a thoroughbred circuit racer, but legally
qualified in every way for road use.

Porsche 996 GT2 ver 2.0

The most powerful turbocharged 911 develops maximum output of 355 kW or 483 bhp at 5700 rpm. Maximum torque is 640 Nm (472 lb-ft) between 3500 and 4500 rpm. The power unit of the 911 GT2 is the high-performance version of the flat-six carried over from the Porsche 911 Turbo. Redesigned for even higher air throughput, the two turbochargers allow an increase in absolute pressure under full load to 2 bar. From the engine, the 911 GT2 trans­mits its staggering power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

Fastest Porsche (2001) - the 996 GT2 ver 1

The Fastest Member of the 911 Family

Porsche 911 Turbo (996) [review]


Three hundred kilometers per hour is the new sports car benchmark because the new 911 Turbo will reach 305 km/h. It will zip to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and continue to 160 km/h in another 5 seconds. That is certainly towering performance but are buyers of the latest Porsche 911 Turbo really interested in duplicating these mind boggling numbers? Probably not. Just the knowledge that this ultimate Porsche flagship can, will do very nicely, thank-you.

Resurrection of the turbo - Porsche 911 Turbo (type 964 ver 1) [review]

THE 1990 PORSCHE 911 TURBO (type 964) [review]
It looks pretty familiar, afterall the 911's shape has hardly changed much over the 25 years of its existence. The previous 911 Turbo had been out of production for about 17 months before it had a replacement. A curious state of affairs since most logically one should have a replacement model before stopping production of the "old" one.
