Introduced in 2007, the famous GT2 name was reincarnated for the 997 generation of Porsche's 911. Boasting an incredible 523 horsepower and 505lb/ft of torque, the insatiable appetites for horsepower from Porsche's fans were thoroughly fed via the car's twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter flat six engine. With all of that power sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission, the GT2 was the perfect unbridled trio: powerful, lightweight and analog. With only around 194 examples sold in the U.S., it is one of the rarest and most lusted-for 997 generation 911s ever created.

This stunning Atlas Grey Metallic Porsche 911 GT2 was built in April of 2008. With an original MSRP of $205,525, the car was well optioned from the Porsche factory. Among the options were the stunning Atlas Grey Metallic paint finish, Dark Grey Natural Leather, Heated seats, a three spoke multi-function steering wheel, Bose surround sound system, and adaptive sports seats. The complete list of options is listed at the bottom of this page. The car was first purchased from Carlsen Porsche in Redwood City, California on June 19th, 2008. Stored inside and driven sparingly, the car was protected from the elements in all regards which explains why the finishes and materials present as new on the car.

With 1,376 miles on the odometer in December of 2016, a major and comprehensive service was performed by Carlsen Porsche. This included new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, an oil change, new spark plugs, a brake fluid flush, new belts, along with a host of other items that were serviced. In January of 2017 the car was sold to Carlsen Porsche, who sold the vehicle to the second owner in May of 2017. This owner also kept the car in California, driving the car only 72 miles since purchasing it 2 years ago. Needing to make room in his collection, he spoke to Canepa about selling his GT2. With such low mileage, an exceptional color specification and a rare production 911, the GT2 was a perfect fit for Canepa.

Upon arrival at Canepa, the GT2 was inspected from front to back thoroughly. With only 1,472 miles on the car, it was unsurprising that it presented in as-new condition. Needing only a light cleaning and a small amount of foam-pad polishing to the stunning Atlas Grey Metallic paint finish, the car is in amazing condition. Quite possibly the closest way to experience buying a new 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 today, this is the best example of Porsche's "widow-maker" 911 that Canepa has ever seen.
