The fabled 911 Type 996 GT2 was Porsche’s fastest and most expensive model at time of launch. 10 percent more powerful and 7 percent lighter than the 911 Turbo from which it evolved, with zero driver aids and power delivered directly to the rear wheels the GT2 quickly developed a reputation for being the ultimate driver’s car.
Fitted with a 456bhp 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six ‘Mezger’ engine derived from Porsche’s Le Mans winning 911 GT1 delivering through the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, the GT2 despatches 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds thanks to its larger KKK 24 turbochargers and boost pressure of 14.5psi.
Weight-saving came in the way of deleted rear seats, a tire repair kit in place of a spare, carbon fiber interior trim, and the GT2 was the first Porsche fitted with Ceramic Composite Brakes as standard, weighing 50 percent less than comparable metal discs.
Tremendous attention was paid to the GT2’s downforce, front and rear. A new front air dam and rear wing were developed and air leaving the radiator exits through a slot in the bonnet generating further downforce. At 300 km/h, the GT2 generates an incredible 54 kgs of downforce.
Accompanying the car are the original leather bound logbooks detailing a detailed service history, factory tool-kit and two original keys
Having covered only 11,900 miles from new this sought after 996 GT2 remains in exceptional original condition and presents a compelling opportunity for any discerning Porsche collector.
While 1,287 examples of the 996 GT2 were built, just 70 were completed by the factory in track ready Clubsport specification, of which only 16 were UK supplied making this Porsche 911 an exceptionally rare performance car.
