Take another quick look at the picture above. That is one stinking sexy ride. Gotta say I love the paint, wheels, everything.
It’s a “run-of-the-mill” Porsche 911 GT2 that has been turned into…..well…..a husband killer.
9ff has transformed a 520 hp, kick butt ride into an absolute rocket. The BT-2 or ‘widowmaker’ has been boosted to 850 horsepower propelling it from 0 to 62 mph in 3 seconds flat! It has a top speed of 240 mph. I guess that’s fast enough for the drive to the store. By the way, you can get to 200 mph in only 19 SECONDS. The huge increase in ponies under the hood produces 678 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re asking yourself why it’s nicknamed “the widowmaker”, go back and read the previous paragraph. Notice they don’t offer a ‘widowermaker’ version. That’s because it’s mostly guys who are stupid enough to jump into a car like this and drop the hammer. We like to drive now and “think” later.
Bottom line, this is more car than most of us will EVER have the pleasure of slipping behind the wheel of. Beats the heck out of the 2001 996 Twin Turbo I drove a couple of weekends ago (which was cool in it’s own right).
