Dealer Notes

Porsche's success with the four-wheel-drive 961, along with Audi's rally wins with the quattro and the later track success of the Nissan Skyline, led to all-wheel-drive being banned by most sanctioning bodies by the mid-1990s. This presented a problem for Porsche, whose Turbo was driven by all four wheels. The solution was the GT2, which was to be rear-wheel-drive.

The 911 GT2 took the top-of-the-line Type 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 GT2's curb weight, while in racing form, the M64/60R engine, with its twin intercooled KKK turbochargers, developed 480 hp; the street version dialed 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 hp, 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 aluminum doors and front trunk lid, and 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-in. diameter multi-piece "Speedline for Porsche" alloy wheels with aluminum outer rims and magnesium centers filled the bolt-on fiberglass wheel arches.

The result was utterly stunning performance, including a 0â€"60 mph sprint in less than four seconds, and a top speed of nearly 190 mph. The new GT2's power-assisted four-wheel carbon-fiber/ceramic disc brakes were up to the task of hauling 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 labeled GT2. After 1997, both versions carried the GT2 name.

The GT2 immediately proved itself to be extremely competitive on the race track. One early example enjoyed high podium finishes at the Sebring 12 Hours in both 1995 and 1996, as well as at Watkins Glen and Daytona. In the hands of expert drivers, the GT2 was indeed a very sharp and reliable scalpel. The street versions were also brilliant performers, but many owners specified various comfort options, and as a result, the GT2 was the most expensive model within the 911 lineup that year.

As road-going GT2s are rarely offered for public sale, the opportunity to acquire such an impeccable example of one of Porsche's most iconic supercars should not be missed.
