Porsche is one of the most famous cars on the race-tracks around the world with wins in almost any race-classes. The introduction of the GT2 category forced the car-maker to produce a radical road-car.

The GT2 was a race car adapted for the road. The Porsche engineers started with a Porsche Turbo, stripped it down to essentials, cut some parts, and added some parts to it. The result was a radical-looking super-sport car, which could do 295 kph (183 mph). But it was, basically, a Turbo with a rear-wheel-drive and lighter and wider body.

The front apron was replaced with a new one, which added fins to the sides and took the three-piece light-alloy wheels from the GT3 RS version. In the back, a huge fixed wing with air-scoops in struts was installed to increase downforce. The GT2’s wider fenders were made from lightweight fiberglass to help the sports car lose more weight. Porsche actually cut the Turbo’s fenders and replaced them with bolt-on plastic pieces.

The interior was stripped-down to essentials. It featured a ventilation system, no AC, and no stereo. The race-bucket seats were fitted as standard and, of course, there were no seats in the back. At least, they left the carpeting on the floor. To obtain the homologation, Porsche had to build the car road-legal and that meant to put a steering wheel with an airbag. The only comfort feature in the car was the power-windows and the car-maker choose to install them since their mechanism was lighter than the cranked one.

The engine was a re-worked 3.6-liter turbocharged unit from the Turbo model, but it was enhanced to produce 435 hp. It was paired exclusively with a 6-speed manual with racing gears.
