Description

The 911 GT2 took the top-of-the-line 993 Turbo to new heights. Eliminating the front-wheel-drive system, rear seats, power-adjustable front seats, and various other items, trimmed some 500 pounds from the Turbo’s curb weight. In racing form, the M64/60R engine, with its twin intercooled KKK turbochargers, developed 480 bhp; the street version dialled that back a bit to 430, along with 457 foot-pounds of torque at 13 psi. This still equated to only 6.6 pounds per horsepower, a figure that surpassed the venerable 959. All this energy was fed to the rear wheels through a new six-speed transaxle and an asymmetrical 40/60 limited-slip differential.

The GT2’s bodywork included aluminium doors and front trunk lid, as well as a very aggressive aero package, with a front air splitter with up-turned canards and a huge bi-plane rear-deck-mounted wing incorporating air ducts that fed the intercoolers. Special 18-inch-diameter multi-piece “Speedline for Porsche” alloy wheels with aluminium outer rims and magnesium centres filled the bolt-on fiberglass wheel arches.

The result was utterly stunning performance, including a 0–60 mph sprint in less than four seconds and a top speed of nearly 190 mph. The new GT2’s power-assisted ceramic disc brakes were up to the task of bringing the car to a halt without fade. This special group of cars was specially hand-prepared by Roland Kussmaul’s Race-Sports Department and assigned the name 911 GT, while the track versions were labelled GT2. After 1997, both versions carried the GT2 name.

The GT2 that we are thrilled to offer for sale is one of just 194 street versions produced. A C05 example, it was delivered new to France in December, 1997 via GT l’experience Porsche Rouen. Ordered through the Porsche Exclusive Department it left the factory finished in L908 Grand Prix White over a Black & Grey leatherette interior.  Additional factory options include Stronger Battery, Air-conditioning, Radio Delete, and Left and Right Sports Seat Manual Adjustment.

The car has since been owned by a small number of dedicated Porsche enthusiasts including Philippe Aunay, founder of the Porsche Club of France. Now U.K. registered, it presents exceptionally well, showing just over 29,000 kms from new and maintaining an excellent service history. It is accompanied by an extensive history file as well as original handbooks, two keys, Porsche car cover and battery conditioner. A Porsche Classic Headunit with Apple CarPlay has also been recently fitted to improve usability on longer journeys. This GT2 is a fantastic low mileage example finished in a rare factory colour, ideal for any collector looking to experience the ultimate air-cooled 911.
