 The prospect of combining the most powerful turbo engine in their range at the time, with a manual gearbox and mounting them in a rear-wheel drive, lightweight 911 was the inspiration for the legendary Porsche 911 GT2. At the same time, Porsche modify and upgrade the suspension and brakes, increase the engine output, and lighten and remove interior components where possible, with the sole aim of creating the ultimate driver's version of the car at that time. This recipé has been used with the 993, 996 and 997 versions of their iconic 911 model.This car is the GT2 version of the 911 (997), introduced in 2008 and produced until 2012. The engine uses twin, variable-geometry, water-cooled turbochargers producing a thumping 523bhp and 500 lbs foot of torque, resulting in a maximum speed in excess of 210mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.6 seconds!  Essentially it's a 997 Turbo with more power fed through the rear wheels only, a track orientated suspension and brake set up, and a GT3 interior. Raw, pure and exciting and to be taken seriously.Additionally, for those customers who wanted to go a little further, a Clubsport Package (M003) was a no-cost option and offered fire-retardant cloth lined Recaros, six-point race harnesses, a bolt-in rear roll cage, fire extinguisher and a battery cut-off switch. This GT2 Clubsport is a UK, right-hand drive car delivered and registered by Porsche Reading on 03/03/2008 and is finished in Arctic Silver with a Black interior featuring striking Red seat inserts. It's currently fitted with a conventional seat belt on the driver's side, however, the original factory 6-point harness is supplied with the car and could easily be re-fitted. Additionally, this example also benefits from the expensive application of discrete Paint Protection Film which also extends across the roof.Purchased by the current owner in March 2017, this GT2 has seen little use since.  The current recorded mileage is 31,350 and the accompanying records indicate that it has benefitted from regular maintenance and servicing.

They have now achieved cult status with a growing following, and one in this condition, that has patently been well cared, could well turn out to be a very astute purchase.
