Information on our 993 "GT2" Conversion

This car actually started life as 993 Turbo X50, but at vast expense was promptly converted to GT2 spec by Porsche Italia for a customer who was unable to get a 993 GT2 allocation. The conversion work involved using all genuine Porsche parts and encompassed body, suspension, interior, engine as well as numerous miscellaneous changes to ensure the car was as close as possible to a factory GT2. There is comprehensive documentation and billing from Porsche Italia to support the activity - albeit in Italian! This GT2 "upgrade" kit from Porsche Italy amounted to 13,912,000 Lire - with the total bill on file dated 27th February 1996 amounting to 14,912,000 Lire. It was billed to Luciano Cavalli of Valenza - a jeweller - who one assumes was the first owner of the car.

The second recorded owner was Sergio Robbiano of Genoa who we understand to be the late fabled co-designer of the Ducati 916 model series and directly responsible for the Aprilia RSV4 and various Bimota designs. Clearly a serious enthusiast, Robbiano's passion for speed on 4 wheels was obviously obliged with spirited use of his 993 and there are a number of pictures on the web of him with his car after the conversion:

Sergio sadly passed on the 30th June 2014 as a result of a motorcycle crash and his GT2 was sold a month later to Massimo Tosti. Known as one of the world's most discerning Porsche collectors - see his Instagram feed @maxige78 where photos of the car appear back in 2014 - he kept the car until the end of the year when prolific car collector Andy Bruce announced on his Instagram account @andyb74 that he had acquired the car on December 25 2014. He actually received the car in January after some minor cosmetic work was attended to. The car features on Andy's Instagram account at the time and was treated to an engine rebuild at Nineexcellence in 2015. Andy used the car enthusiastically and kept the car until it was sold to Ben Gulliver. It was then acquired by a renown historic racer in 2021 and this year featured in a multiple page spread in July 2023 edition of Classic Porsche.

Apart from the chassis plate, this car is indistinguishable from one of the original 194 993 GT models built by the factory and has been referred to in the past as the 195th "GT2". In superb condition and owned by some of the most discerning collectors, our car has interesting ownership provenance and has been cherished and maintained regardless of cost, throughout its life.

Today, despite the cost of a factory built 993 GT2 being well into 7 figures it would be impossible to replicate the build of this car. The primary stumbling block would be that many of the OEM 993 GT2 parts are simply no longer available.

The car we offer for sale offers more or less 100% of the visual appearance and driving experience of a factory built car at a fraction of the price.
