Porsche is still busy testing the 911 GT2, which will probably be the most powerful version of the current-generation 911 when it is released.

Though it may appear akin to the 911 GT3 RS, a few key traits give away this car’s true identity. First are larger cooling vents in the rear bumper, suggesting that this car is turbocharged. A dual exhaust is also present, unlike the center-exit exhaust found on the 911 GT3 RS.

The GT2 is historically the most powerful 911 model, and considering the latest 911 Turbo S makes 580 horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six, the GT2 is likely to put out around 620 hp. There’s also the possibility, considering the 991-generation is already late in its life cycle, that Porsche will simply skip straight to a GT2 RS model, which could put out something closer to 700 hp.

Canards on the front bumper and a large rear wing also point to this car being the more hardcore GT2RS model, rather than just a GT2.

Porsche’s seven-speed PDK will almost certainly be standard equipment, while us enthusiasts are hopeful that a six-speed manual will be an option.

Hopefully they also have plans for even more special version of the 911 GT2 like what they did with the GT3 by offering up a 4.0 version since there is demand for these and they'll SELL, even with all the competition out right now Porsche still comes out on top.

The GT3 RS 4.0 was definitely some serious business. People went stir-crazy over that thing, so if they could apply something like that to the GT2, it's sure to be a hit.

These cars have a certain something that really set them apart from you're higher end performance vehicles. They carry a certain presence that's very different, which is why Porsche is so successful.
