The sheer, inexhaustible potential of the 911 concept proves to be, in the GT2 and GT2 Evo vehicles entered by customer teams, a consistent winner at long distance competitions.
Even this racing vehicle, with its suspension featuring a McPherson front axle and Porsche multi-link rear axle with LSA system, closely resembles its production relative.

2008 Porsche 911 GT2 - Top Speed

2008 Porsche 911 GT2 As an example, both the luggage compartment lid and the doors of the new 911 GT2 are made of aluminium, consistent enhancement of the car’s material concept serving furthermore to reduce the weight of the rear lid and the rear wing even further than before: On the former model the rear lid and the rear wing were both made of glass-fibre-reinforced plastic (GFP).
The chassis and suspension fitted with PASM Porsche Active Suspension Management likewise as standard is tailored specifically to the new top-of-the-range 911 and ensures extremely sporting driving behaviour with superior handling qualities also on the track.
