But what marks the prime tangible, repeatable, inimitable, decisive difference between the GT2 and lesser versions of the 911 is its exceptional clarity of motion. Performance is instant, linear, and seemingly inexhaustible. Handling is intuitive, ultrasharp, and totally uncompromising. Get it right, and feel like the king of the road. Get it wrong, and prepare to spend years restoring your damaged ego. The steering and the brakes work in total harmony, with no artificial preservatives added. Mastering a seemingly awkward engineering concept at its highest level is rewarding, rejuvenating, and reassuring. The GT2 is that and more. But like all special 911s, it's definitely not the right Porsche for poseurs or pretenders. If you can't face the challenge, get a Lamborghini or a Ferrari instead and show off in second gear, up and down the boulevard.
