Porsche responded to the reorganization of international GT racing

with a series of homologation specials beginning with the naturally

aspirated 911 RS and culminating in the GT2 Evo. The lightweight RS

set the basic template, using a non-turbo air-cooled flat-6 punched

out to 3.8L and rated at 300 HP, bolt-on Turbo-style wheel-arch

flares, larger brake discs clamped by 4-piston calipers and adjustable

front and rear anti-roll bars. More obviously equipped for the track,

the RSR incorporated a full roll cage, a front strut brace, an

adjustable tail spoiler, 6-point harnesses and a fire extinguisher.

The subsequent GT2 combined the RS/RSR’s purity of purpose with a

tuned version of the 993 Turbo’s twin-turbocharged engine rated at 444

HP. Essentially a street legal race car, the GT2 sported an

aggressive-looking front spoiler with upturned side winglets, wider

bolt-on wheel flares and a huge rear spoiler with integrated air

scoops. Using 2-wheel drive instead of the production Turbo’s

all-wheel system shaved even more weight, resulting in a top speed of

almost 190 MPH and road-holding that bordered on the supernatural

This exceptionally rare one-owner 1996 Porsche 911 GT2 Evo represented

the top specification ever produced for any air-cooled Porsche.

Designed to compete in FIA GT1, it incorporated a twin turbocharged

3.6L flat-6 engine rated at a full 600 HP and 490 lb-ft of torque.

Porsche widened the rear fender extensions to cover wider modular

wheels and added a new front spoiler with inlets for oil and brake

cooling. A second deck appeared on the already outlandish rear

spoiler, which could be mounted higher in the air stream for added

downforce. Alas, by then the competition in GT1 had already left the

Evo behind. Only 11 were ever built before Porsche moved onto the 996,

making these cars among the rarest in the 911 racing lineage. With

approximately 7,000 kilometers on the odometer, this GT2 Evo is

exactly as it left the factory, an artifact from one of the most

exciting periods in Porsche’s racing history.
