Based on the 911 Turbo, the 996 GT2 was introduced as the most powerful high-performance 911 yet featuring a twin-turbocharged Mezger flat-six engine sending power to the rear wheels. It came equipped with unique aerodynamic bodywork, lightweight carbon ceramic brakes, and a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. This German-market 2002 example is finished in Guards Red over a Black interior and is reportedly one of only 72 cars factory-equipped with the optional Clubsport Package which adds track-focused accessories including a roll cage, cloth bucket seats, racing harnesses, fire extinguisher, and a battery cutoff switch. It is said to have been cared for by two prior owners in Germany before being imported to Italy by a collector in 2022. Recently certified by Porsche Classic Italia, this rare Guards Red GT2 Clubsport is now being offered for auction with approximately 47k kilometers (29k miles) showing on the odometer.
Adapted from the contemporary 911 Turbo, the 996 GT2’s bodywork features a modified nose section with reshaped air intakes, a larger lip spoiler, and additional vent slits to extract air from the radiators. At the rear, a large manually adjustable spoiler is fixed into position on the engine lid. This example is finished in Guards Red with yellow brake calipers mounted behind factory 18” Turbo monobloc wheels in silver. The tires show production date codes from 2022 and reportedly have about 90% tread remaining. The seller notes one door was previously refinished and a layer of spray-on paint protection film was applied in 2023. Some imperfections are noted on the plastic lower front spoiler and radiators. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings.
Inside, this GT2 features a pair of black cloth Recaro bucket seats included with the Clubsport Package along with Schroth racing harnesses, a fire extinguisher, a battery cutoff switch, and a full roll cage. Other equipment includes a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, power windows and mirrors, a central locking system, automatic climate control, and a Porsche CDR-22 stereo. The seller notes some swelling on the leather covering the driver's side airbag. All accessories and electronics are said to be fully functional.
Derived from the 911 Turbo, the 996 GT2’s 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine received larger turbochargers and intercoolers along with a revised air intake, exhaust system, and reprogrammed software for a 10% increase in power. Up to 456 HP and 457 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Stopping power is derived from a Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system including fixed monobloc calipers with 6 pistons up front, 4 pistons in the rear, and 350mm cross-drilled discs at each corner. The suspension is lowered by 20mm compared to the 911 Turbo and fitted with adjustable components as well as stiffer springs and dampers. The seller notes that the clutch and pressure plate were recently replaced, and the car was certified for condition and originality by Porsche Classic Italia.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a service booklet, a Porsche Classic certificate, and a clean title.
