The GT2 was based on the contemporary 911 Turbo, using essentially the same twin-turbocharged engine. In the GT2 the 3.6-litre air-cooled flat-six engine produced around 414bhp initially, which was good enough for a top speed of 301km/h (187mph). To make the GT2 fit for track use the brakes, suspension, and wheels were up-rated to cope with the substantial increase in performance, while aerodynamic downforce was enhanced by a larger front air dam and a rear spoiler. Of rear-wheel drive configuration, the GT2 was considerably lighter than the Turbo, many of the interior fittings having been deleted, and was the most expensive model in the 911 range. In its original Type 993 incarnation, the Porsche 911 GT2 was produced up to 1998.
Delivered new in the UK via Porsche Centre Swindon, this limited edition supercar was purchased by the current vendor in 2009, having formerly belonged to Sir Alfred McAlpine. Since 2009 the car has covered only some 2,000-3,000 miles and has been regularly maintained by Stratton Motor Company, Norwich; we are advised that it drives beautifully. Described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition, the car is offered with its service booklet (last stamped in October 2016), MoT to February 2018, a V5C Registration Certificate, and some substantial service bills.
