Created to meet homologation requirements for GT2 class racing, Porsche’s original GT2 is based on the 993 Turbo and features widened bodywork around a twin-turbocharged Mezger engine sending power to the rear wheels. This 1996 example is among the 194 road cars produced in total and is one of only 33 to have been equipped with the optional Clubsport package which increases engine output to 450 HP along with the fitment of a welded roll cage, racing harnesses, fire suppression system, and Recaro bucket seats. The car was ordered in the Paint to Sample color of Ferrari Yellow and was delivered to its original owner in Germany by Porsche Zentrum Ulm. This GT2 moved to Switzerland with its second owner in 2012 where it is now being offered for auction while showing approximately 25k kilometers or just under 16k miles on the odometer.
The GT2’s bodywork is characterized by wide bolt-on fender flares, an aggressive front splitter, and a large rear wing with integrated ram-air scoops for engine cooling. It uses a thinner glass windshield for weight savings along with a lightweight aluminum bonnet and door panels. This example was ordered in the rarely seen Paint to Sample color of Ferrari Yellow (Ferrarigelb, 10L) and rides on factory lightweight 18” Speedline wheels dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The seller describes the car to be in very good overall condition while showing a few minor stone chips, detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The GT2 features a lightweight Clubsport interior with a factory-welded roll cage, black Nomex Recaro bucket seats, six-point safety harnesses, a full fire suppression system, and a battery cut-off switch. The seller states the original racing safety equipment remains in place and all gauges and accessories are fully functional.
Equipped with the Clubsport package, the GT2’s air-cooled 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine features twin K24 turbochargers and an output of up to 450 HP. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The GT2 features adjustable factory suspension with solid bushings, a stiffer rear subframe, adjustable anti-roll bars, and variable stabilizers. Stopping power comes from cross-drilled 12.6” discs paired with four-piston aluminum calipers at each corner. The seller states the car underwent routine services by the technicians at RUF and at authorized Porsche service centers with all corresponding invoices available.
This sale will include the original owner’s documentation and a clean title.
