The Track is Officially Open!
You know when you hang out with “that guy,” and it seems everything cool just shows up at his feet?
You might get that same feeling visiting Lime Rock Park as some of the coolest cars show up nearly every day. This week was no different, as a Porsche GT2, the fastest Porsche ever made and one of the only in the United States at the present time, graced the pavement for a day on the autocross.
The 911 Turbos might be the original cause for the expression “scary fast.” But these days they all come with the four-wheel drive standard with the fright option removed. Unless, that is, you get a GT2, which keeps the weight down and the speeds up by just utilizing rear wheel drive.
A car magazine cover darling, with a 200 mph trick up its sleeve, the Porsche GT2 is one capable runner. And its exactly the kind of car that you must drive at a place like Lime Rock Park.
Like taking a supermodel to a costume party, the street is no place for a car like this.
