Those who are eyeing the upcoming 911 GT2 might be slightly disappointed though. Porsche's Chief Executive Oliver Blume has just confirmed to Car Advice at the Geneva Motor Show that the flagship model will only be available with a dual clutch automatic.
Interestingly, the new car is rumored to so much more hardcore and faster than before that 'regular' GT2 model will be skipped entirely. It is possible that the car will just be known straight as the GT2 RS.
"In the past it was a very famous model of the 911, and maybe in the future we will have a GT2 as well. For the GT2 it’s very typical to have big power combined with the turbo engine. Today we can't talk about the power, but when we launch the car I think you will see at which level we can get to with the car. And we’re still working at it," Blume said.
He also added that he couldn't go into to a lot of details, but the company has a clear vision of what they want to do.
The new GT2 is expected to make around 650bhp and should debut in early 2018.
