  • 9ff BT-2 997 Porsche 911 GT2

    Driving the Porsche GT2 is often described as dancing with death - consider that the GT2 takes all the mechanicals of the Porsche 911 Turbo, then adds more horsepower and removes the safety of all-wheel-drive, leaving you with a car that will pirouette on cue without cautious use of the right foot. Apparently, though, the engineers at famed Porsche-tuning firm 9ff thought that the standard GT2 was a bit lacking in the power department, and on further reflection we can see how 530hp (395kW), a 3.7 second sprint to 62mph and a top speed of over 200mph might get a little boring. To remedy this...

    9ff shows off custom 670hp Porsche 911 GT2

    In terms of factory-built near-race cars, the Porsche GT2 is a legendary beast - its current generation generates 530hp (395kW) in stock form, and its raw, unbridled character is famous (or infamous) thanks to the rear-drive, rear-engine configuration. The tuners at 9ff decided it just wasn't quite...
