Porsche used cars like there 911 model is the one vehicle I think everyone thinks of when dreaming of the Porsche Brand. With so many other models born from the 911 brand, this article will take a look at these other cars (which are less famous than there older brother the Porsche 911) but still very sleek and really fast. When researching older Porsche 911’s from 2005, the turbo had a 480-horsepower twin turbo engine and this vehicle handle’s excellent in high speed performance situations.
Porsche 911 used cars:
Porsche decided that wanted to get a little flashier with its 911 brand so they introduced the 911 GT3. You will notice that most of these 911 GT3’s have loud paint jobs, meaning you see a lot of them in orange, bright yellows and lime green to mention a few. These also came in all-wheel drive and the glass roof was standard in the 911 GT3. The Porsche Motor Company realized that the GT3 wasn’t fast enough, so the following year they unveiled the GT2 and this now had a 530 horsepower, twin turbo engine. These Porsche 911 GT2’s also offered loud paint jobs.
Both the GT3 and the GT2 come with a six speed manual transmission, there is also an option to have the famous Tiptronic S which are paddle shifters you see in a Formula One race car.
I could only find one stat for the fuel economy of the Porsche 911 GT2. The GT2 has an 18.8-litre, per 100kms for city driving and 8.9-litre, per 100kms for highway driving. Not exactly your favourite green car to drive around in the city, but imagine most 911 GT2 owners couldn’t care less.
Let’s look at some pros and cons of the different 911 models:
1- It has been mentioned that are problems with the pistons.
2- There is an issue with anti flood system.
3- There are problems with the seals for the engine oil.
4- There have been complaints with the transmission not working properly when you change gears.
I could not find any reports on safety crash tests done on either the GT2 or GT3. The Porsche 911 family are very expensive cars even if you buy second hand; they seem to hold their value for a long time. They are also an expensive car to maintain so if you do decide to buy one used, don’t be shocked when the mechanic gives you the bill.
