New Porsche 991 GT2 will be PDK only and have 552 horsepower - GT2RS over 600 horsepower
Well, no surprise here. Porsche continues to embrace the dual clutch transmission making the PDK standard and the only option on their new GT cars such as the GT3 and GT2. It started with the 991 GT3 getting the PDK transmission only with no manual option
and now the 991 GT2 and GT2 RS will take the same route. Even the new 991 Turbo does not have a manual transmission option
meaning the PDK dual clutch is the only way to get it.
Purists may not like it but the GT2 is going to be a beast with 552 horsepower, rear wheel drive, and a dual clutch transmission. The GT2 RS is set to go up to 620 horsepower. 9 second car stock? With drag radials a high 9 second 1/4 mile certainly sounds within reach. Do not expect it until 2015 though.
