• Rare factory GT2 EVO - 1 of 11 produced - The only one with a VIN and sold on a title
• Top specification ever produced for any air cooled Porsche

• Factory rated at 600 HP and 490 ft/lbs torque
• 6-speed manual transmission
• One owner car
• 7,000 original kilometers

Porsche responded to the reorganization of international GT racing
with a series of homologation specials beginning with the naturally
aspirated 911 RS and culminating in the GT2 Evo. The lightweight RS
set the basic template, using a non-turbo air-cooled flat-6 punched
out to 3.8L and rated at 300 HP, bolt-on Turbo-style wheel-arch
flares, larger brake discs clamped by 4-piston calipers and adjustable
front and rear anti-roll bars. More obviously equipped for the track,
the RSR incorporated a full roll cage, a front strut brace, an
adjustable tail spoiler, 6-point harnesses and a fire extinguisher.
The subsequent GT2 combined the RS/RSR's purity of purpose with a
tuned version of the 993 Turbo's twin-turbocharged engine rated at 444
HP. Essentially a street legal race car, the GT2 sported an
aggressive-looking front spoiler with upturned side winglets, wider
bolt-on wheel flares and a huge rear spoiler with integrated air
scoops. Using 2-wheel drive instead of the production Turbo's
all-wheel system shaved even more weight, resulting in a top speed of
almost 190 MPH and road-holding that bordered on the supernatural
This exceptionally rare one-owner 1996 Porsche 911 GT2 Evo represented
the top specification ever produced for any air-cooled Porsche.
Designed to compete in FIA GT1, it incorporated a twin turbocharged
3.6L flat-6 engine rated at a full 600 HP and 490 lb-ft of torque.
Porsche widened the rear fender extensions to cover wider modular
wheels and added a new front spoiler with inlets for oil and brake
cooling. A second deck appeared on the already outlandish rear
spoiler, which could be mounted higher in the air stream for added
downforce. Alas, by then the competition in GT1 had already left the
Evo behind. Only 11 were ever built before Porsche moved onto the 996,
making these cars among the rarest in the 911 racing lineage. With
approximately 7,000 kilometers on the odometer, this GT2 Evo is
exactly as it left the factory, an artifact from one of the most
exciting periods in Porsche's racing history
