We can exclusively reveal that Porsche has started testing not one but two upcoming super-performing 911s. And we have spy-shots of both, thanks to super-snapper, Sebastian Geisler.
Spotted here testing on the public road, the Carrera GT2 (997) is expected around the end 2007 or early 2008, will boast some 530-550bhp, and include PCCB (ceramic brakes) as standard. It's differentiated by its modified front and rear spoilers, new exhaust system, and is about 80-100Kg lighter than the 997 turbo.
Porsche is doing its test work on the 997 GT3RS on the track. This beast is scheduled for release at the Paris Motor Show which runs from 30 September to 15. October 2006.
It features PCCB as standard, uses the same wide body as Carrera 4 / 4S but with a different rear wing. It'll be 50-75Kg lighter than GT3 and carry a price tag of about £94,000, some £14,000 more than the 997 GT3.
On one image you can already see the GT3RS written on the bonnet.
