Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit
The Porsche 911 GT2 appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet with a price tag of $185,000. It is given a Tier 3 rating and only playable in the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 releases. The GT2 is unlocked upon dominating the Super Promotion Showdown: Autopolis race day.
The Porsche 997 GT2 in Need for Speed: ProStreet is one of the most competitive cars for most race modes, especially Speed Challenge. It can reach a very high top speed and has a powerful acceleration to hit it quickly. The GT2 also handles well and may be upgraded and adjusted for drifting.
Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit
The GT2 has a precise and grippy handling. Its acceleration is nerfed in this title and up to par with other averagely accelerating cars. The main strength of the GT2 is top speed, which is 225 mph (362 km/h) without performance parts. However, the Porsche 911 Turbo (997) and Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997) are capable of higher top speeds.
In the Boss Car Pack DLC, the player can drive Rose Largo's car, which is given a Tier 1 rating. Rose's car hits 251 mph (404 kmh) as top speed. Her GT2 also comes with a lot of power at the expense of handling. The player can use the car in every game mode.
The free Challenge Series expansion includes an upgraded Porsche GT2. This variant is known as "Speed Machine". Like Rose's GT2, the Speed Machine has a high top speed (250 mph/402 km/h) and an outstanding acceleration.
Similar to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the GT2 can achieve fast corner entry speeds wihout a great loss of traction. It has good braking capabilities and can keep up with the fastest cars within its range.
Need for Speed: WorldEdit
The GT2 stacks up well with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997.2) and other powerful Class A cars. Its best trait is acceleration. The nitrous boost of the GT2 is also very effective. The handling of the car is featured with a lot of traction, which is useful for controlling the vehicle at high-speed corners although this trait might affect its steering precision in low-speed turns. Top speed is 209 mph (336 km/h).
Compared to the Porsche 911 Carrera S, it has a more direct steering. In terms of precision, the GT3 RS is better, although it is also prone to oversteer whilst turning at a high speed.
The GT2 is one of the best performing Class A cars in the game. It is useful in every game mode and suitable for Pro and Ultra series parts, which can upgrade its rating to Class S.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)Edit
The 911 GT2 appears as a Sports class vehicle in the Need for Speed Heroes Pack for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 releases of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012). It is featured with the livery of Rose Largo's car from Need for Speed: Undercover.
