The official for the 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 has been released and should have all car affecieonado’s standing up to take notice. If you go solely by the numbers there is little that the GT2 should leave its driver feeling deficient of. The appearance of the GT2 is perfectly Porsche and distinctly 911, while the performance of the car would be expected to be up to or above the auto manufacturers distinctive standards. But wait… We are just talking about a brochure here.
Ofcourse all of what I have said is exactly what the ad campaign for the 2008 911 GT2 is all about: Respect Required. And when referring to the car the fine marketers of Porsche point out that “it doesn’t have to move to take your breath away.” They are quick to point out however that Porsche is doing more than providing you a 530-hp rocket ship with which to propel its driver at speeds slightly above 200mph, but a safe car aswell. The 911 GT2 adheres to all the safety regulations required by the U.S. and in some aspects goes way further. With stability control and its automatic breaking for corrections to understeer and oversteer the 2008 GT2 will do its part to make sure that your rocket ship keeps to the road (or track if you are exceeding the speed limits and not on the Autobahn in Germany or on a closed course here in the US).
As the number of millionaires in the US continues to grow I hope to find many of them heading out in 2008 to pay their respects to Porshe’s new demon on wheels. That way those of us traveling about in our American made Ponies and lunking SUV’s have something to gape at on our usual commute to work or soccer practice or where ever your travels take you.
