The 2008 Porsche 997 GT2 is the most powerful and fastest roadgoing 911 Porsche has ever created. Power for the 997 GT2 comes from a 3.6 litre, twin-turbo, flat-6 cylinder engine which develops 530 bhp @ 6500 rpm, and a tire destroying 505 lb-ft of torque @ 2200 - 4500 rpm. most of the power gains have been achieved with changes to the turbo-charging system and the addition of a high-flow titanium exhaust system. Power is transferred to the rear wheels of the 2008 GT2 through a 6-speed short-throw manual giving the car a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds and a 204 mph top speed.

Like most recent 911 versions the 997 GT2 is equipped with driver aids. For the GT2 a specially adapted version of Porsche's Stability Management (PSM) is fitted. This includes Stability Control (SC) which monitors the direction, speed, yaw velocity and lateral acceleration of the car and uses the gathered information to apply selective braking in order to correct oversteer or understeer. traction control (TC) is responsible for adapting the cars power delivery to various surfaces the car may encounter, it also helps to prevent the back end from stepping out during hard acceleration. The 997 GT2 also features launch control which maximizes acceleration from a standing start, the 2008 GT2 is the first road going car Porsche has fitted this system to.

Visually the 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 is equipped with a new front bumper with revised aerodynamics to compensate for the increased cooling requirements of the engine and brakes. At the back a fixed rear wing with integrated lip spoiler keeps the GT2 glued to the road. The 2008 911 GT2 rides on one-piece 19" wheels specifically designed for the car. Behind the new wheels sit ceramic composite brake discs which provide shorter stopping distances and excellent fade resistance under harsh use, as well as a 50% reduction in unsprung weight when compared with conventional discs.

Under the slippery bodywork Porsche has fitted the 2008 911 GT2 with adjustable suspension, including customisable ride height, camber, toe angle and anti-roll bar settings. This is backed up by Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) which provides active damping which adjusts individual damping forces based on current road conditions and driving styles.

Inside the 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 features ergonomic sports bucket seats compatible with six-point racing harnesses. Facing the driver is the cluster of five instruments including a large central rev counter highlighted with a GT2 logo, titanium colored dial and upshift light. An optional 'Chrono Package' combines a dash mounted analogue/digital timer with a range of functions including lap times and distance traveled.
