EXTERIOR
The GT2 is a nomenclature synonymous with Porsche extravagance since its introduction in 1993, and this example is no different. Markedly different from the 996 Turbo, the extended front bumper, staggered rear wing and gaping intakes point to both an aerodynamic and performance advantage. The iconic headlights are a nod to the racing inception of the 996 GT2, just one of the many features borrowed from the Le Mans winning 911 GT1.

Finished in a beautiful coat of Arctic Silver, this 18 year old 911 still glistens here under our studio lights. Overall the paint work presents well, there are a few small stone chips across the front of the car and a minor scuff on the rear passenger side arch, but overall the bodywork is straight and clean. All rubbers, plastics and surrounds remain soft and supple with no discolouration or age related wear.

INTERIOR
Upon entry, the exclusive features of the Clubsports package are immediately apparent. The hardback Recaro bucket seats are embroidered with the Porsche logo and are surprisingly comfortable; with deep contours and a thick padding they provide excellent support and cushioning for both driver and passenger. The Clubsport full 6 point cage consumes the rear of the interior, providing extraordinary stiffness and security to handle the turbo powerplant that sits behind it.

Despite the race car appearances the GT2 does come with some creature comforts; a JVC CD/Radio with I-Pod connectivity is present along with AC and a leather stitched dash surround. Black carpets run the length of the car which provide some soundproofing to the turbo charged flat-6.

Overall the interior is in very good condition, the leather dashboard shows no signs of fading, the seats show no evidence of marks or tears and the limited electrics all function as they should.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The GT2’s shattering performance is derived directly from the company’s Le Mans winning 911 GT1, the twin-turbo 3.6L Flat-6 engine is a marvel of engineering. There is a short delay before the boost kicks in, surging forward on a huge wave of torque, the GT2 is still considered a true supercar in terms of performance. Its power delivery is totally encompassing and captures an intensity that cannot be mimicked by variable turbine geometry.

The engine bay presents in fine condition, a combination of stringent upkeep and fastidious ownership with no fewer than 9 service stamps and a folder packed full of invoices.

One of the most recent bills totals over £15k and includes an engine out service, new clutch and intercooler / turbo upgrade with associated fuelling and mapping.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The timeless unmarked 18 inch Turbo wheels remain unmarked and clad in a set of Michelin Pilot Sport tyres with good tread level.

Supplied with ceramic brakes from new, this example has now been fitted with new GT3 steel brakes keeping replacement costs on the more reasonable side and improving reliability on track over the flaws of Porsches early PCCB system.
