Ultra-Rare 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 Heads To Auction

The Porsche 911 GT2, primarily built for racing but still road-legal, has a lineage tracing back to the iconic 1973 911 Carrera RS. Named after the FIA’s GT2 category, it debuted in 1993 with the Type 993 model, which many consider the most beautiful 911.

First seen in prototype form at the 1994 Essen Motor Show, its 3.6-liter air-cooled flat-six engine produced around 424bhp, achieving a top speed of 301km/h (187mph) and reaching 100mph in 7.2 seconds, second only to the McLaren F1 at the time.

The GT2 featured upgraded brakes, suspension, and wheels, alongside a larger front air dam and rear spoiler for enhanced aerodynamics. It was significantly lighter than the Turbo, shedding 300kg by using aluminum body panels, lightweight racing seats, and minimal interior fittings. The GT2 also had widened wheel arches and a larger rear wing for improved cooling.

Delivered on 28th September 1995, this GT2 is one of just 17 shipped to Japan and 172 road cars built. Initially ordered in race spec, it was modified to street-legal upon factory confirmation of a limited run.

It features Polar Silver Metallic paint, black leatherette bucket seats, and an early sports steering wheel. With comprehensive maintenance records, the car was imported to the UK in 2020 and acquired by its current owner in 2021. It includes handbooks, tools, and the original exhaust.

Given its rarity and immaculate condition, this GT2 with 21,000 recorded miles is one that should not be missed by any discerning collectors. This 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 will be open for bidding next week on Bonhams Cars’ Goodwood Festival of Speed auction.
