Porsche 911 GT2 1996.

recent escalation of prices some variants of the Porsche 911 has caused that keep appearing specimens of the rarest variants of the iconic German sports. The last and high prices obtained for some specimens on auctions of this last year is encouraging some collectors to get rid of your 911 classic, to take advantage of the high value in which they are quoting currently.

it is therefore not surprising that we’re seeing almost habitual with copies of these rare variants clearly belong to large collections. Specimens that despite of the years they accumulate usually found in a perfect state, with records of a single owner and with figures of mileage is ridiculous, what evidence that they have been maintained with lot of care and attention.

This is the case of these two Porsche 911 GT2, 2 of only 57 units manufactured by the brand approved for road, of the 194 units that made up the total production of the model. In both cases we find very few miles and very little history of owners. Both will be auctioned off this year by RM Sotheby’s, the unit of white color in just a few weeks in Monterey, 2017 and the unit of black color in the next event of the auction house in London, next month of September..

Porsche 911 GT2 1995.

The Porsche 911 GT2 was not a fanciful version of rear-wheel-drive 911 Turbo, which already had all-wheel drive. Was born with the purpose of the trademark homologate the 911 Turbo for competition, so that you not only lost the all-wheel drive system and part of the equipment of comfort, in addition to winning numerous elements intended to maximize your performance.

The loss of the awd and new items of aluminum in your body, as well as the interior almost bare of the Carrera RS allowed the model lost a little over 200 pounds, which, coupled with some mechanical enhancements allowed the model in its specification of competition to reach 486 HP (480 hp), that remained at 435 HP (430 hp) in its variant of street, although from 1997 the power of the versions of street you grew to 456 HP (450 hp).

The units that we can see in the images correspond to the models in 1995 and 1996, which were not equipped with mechanical enhancements of 1997 and have only with 435 HP. A fact very curious about this model is that we can see in his rear wing inscription 911 GT, the true name that gave you the mark the variants of street GT2, although all we know by the last name.
