Would be nice to see a possible 812xx convertible or basically elegible to gt2 specs.
Disappointed by lamborghini, a racing aventador would fit better for gt2.

Not too sure about that. If we assume that the Porsche 991 GT2 is the flagship car for the class (name checks out, and there was that test mule at Monza), then the other cars should be from a similar slot in the market as the Porker.

And while the Porsche is an impressive and plenty fast car, it's really still "only" a 911. For me, a 911 - even in GT2 form - is not in the same league as an Aventador, which sits more or less in the middle ground between the 911 and the 918, that Porsche has left empty so far (rumors about the new 960 notwithstanding).

As far I know that testing prototype was based on the road 911 gt2 rs.
Road 911 gt2 rs shares more with the aventador (comparable power, comparatble overall performances, similiar price range) than a huracan.

you are thinking of something like this:


But I have the feeling that Ferrari will use a 488 Challenge adapted to GT2 or in the best case a 488 Pista Piloti.

I'm disappointed too, I do not know if a 911 GT2 RS is closer to a Huracan or an Aventador. But where does the Aston Martin Vulcan fit then? This is much more expensive than the Aventador or the 812 and it is a track only version.
I have the feeling that this category has a similar philisophy to the original GT3 and this time without the FIA ​​behind in order to admit these Track only cars. Maybe the Brabham BT62, the Glickenhaus SCG003, the Renault RS01 or the Ligier JSP4 can be part of the series as well.
Also, I imagine that Mercedes and Audi will join Porsche, McLaren, Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Ferrari, announcing a GT2 kit for their AMG GT4 and R8 GT4.

Great car.... if only was real

Is quite difficult to predict how gt2 class will evolve, but in my most optimistic opinion, will be basically a bunch of gt4-ized street super/hyper cars.

Sounds like this will be a hodgepodge of cars and with so far, little direction or rules. Sounds great!

The new XX cars do NOT sound like you'd hope, the LaFerrari XX (whatever it is actually called) sounds terrible and quiet. The 599XX wasn't bad but wasn't anything special at Road Atlanta this spring. I was hoping for more but they were kind of meh, especially compared to the F1 cars on track.

I thought the fxxk evo sounded good, audibly different from the standard fxxk.

And yes the f1 cars spoiled us for sounds that weekend.

I would love to see this new Porsche 935 in this new GT2 category.

I was wondering how fast this specifically unhomologated car would end up here. I don't think Porsche has any interest in making this a racer outside of track days and likely appearances in HSR events. It is based on a street car but it itself is not and will not be built as a street car so it cannot be the basis for a GT2 car as per the few rules SRO deemed worthy of releasing so far.

If the Aston Martin Vulcan can be part of the GT2 category this Porsche can also be part.

But have ANY cars been included as confirmed? And Porsche has said they are not interested in homologating it for racing after being directly asked multiple times.

It is true that Porsche showed interest in racing in the GT2 with the 911 GT2 RS, but this car derives from that.
The GT2 car homologations, like GT4, is largely devoid of involvement from the FIA and is managed by SRO with the help of the Royal Automobile Club of Belgium.
This allows Ratel more flexibility to homologate different cars.

John Dagys mentioned the Aston Martin Vulcan in the list of possible participating cars.
