1996 Porsche 911 GT2
Year of manufacture1996
The 993 series finds its self well placed in the 911 spectrum, encapsulating the unmistakable magic and unique feel of the air cooled era whilst offering a modern yet involving driving experience. Turbocharged 911s were the backbone of Porsches successful motorsport programme in the 70s, 80s and 90s with many class and outright victories at famous events such as Le Mans and Daytona 24 hours.
The 993 Turbo is the last of the air cooled era and is widely regarded as one of Porsches most desirable 911 variants, although it still has classic timeless style, performance is still very respectable today. With an air cooled twin turbo engine producing 408BHP that puts the power down via a 6 speed gearbox and an electronic 4wd system in standard form, it offers performance to embarrass a lot of modern cars today. With a top speed of 180mph and a 0-60mph in just 4.5 seconds, it certainly doesn't hang around!
Delivered in August 1996 via Stratstone Porsche Wilmslow to its first owner, this 993 Turbo was sold to its second owner and has been owned by him/his company since 1998. Having covered only 54,000 miles, the car is described as in exceptional condition.
It is finished in Polar Silver with Flamenco Red soft leather interior and boasts four wheel Drive, twin turbo, dealer fitted Porsche X50 motorsport pack with 430bhp, twin K24 turbo chargers, sports exhaust and additional oil cooler.

A comprehensive history and service history can be found in the file, including records of mileage and usage, it has been lovingly maintained from new. A recent service and MoT have ben carried out and this car would make an ideal everyday classic supercar.
