The "Leichtbau Collection"
We are very delighted to offer this small but highly exclusive collection of the best Porsche 993 models - the „Leichtbau Collection“. The collection was brought together by a German collector and Porsche enthusiast to honor the pinnacle of modern Porsche air cooled models. Each of the four cars stands for the best of the best, either road or track, normal aspirated of turbo powered! This is the first time that this collection becomes public and it for sale!
The 993 GT2 was initially built in order to meet homologation requirements for the international GT2 class racing. The 993 GT2 featured widened and riveted front and rear fenders and an extra large rear wing with air scoops in the struts for improved engine cooling. The 993 GT2 3.6-litre flat-6 bi-turbo engine generated a maximum power output of 430hp. The engine is based on the 993 turbo unit, but without the four-wheel drive and without a traction control. From 1998 the engine was upgraded to 450hp. The GT2 is 200 kg lighter than the 993 Turbo and featured aluminium doors and bonnet. The very light Speedline rims, which were partly made out of magnesium, came as a standard. An airbag and air conditioning was optional.
The even more extreme version of the GT2 was the ultra rare GT2 Clubsport, which included a welded Matter roll cage, six-point harnesses, a battery switch, a full fire extinguishing system and bucket seats.
A total of 175 GT2 were produced, but only 57 cars were built for homologation purposes, and from the 57 just 21 had the Clubsport package as an option.

The restoration is nicely documented and was featured in the official Porsche magazine as a "master piece" restoration. The current mileage is 15.280 kms from new.
