Rarity is a subject much discussed in Porsche collectibles, but truly rare 911s are few and far between. Porsche production ramped up significantly with the water-cooled cars, so while the later GT2 and GT3 models are great 911s, they were made in reasonable numbers. The real Porsche rarities hang from the air-cooled family tree.
As the last in the air-cooled 911 line, the 993 is an established favourite, with the 993 Turbo, Turbo S and 993 RS amongst the most sought after air-cooled 911s. At the top of the road-going 993 food chain is the legendary 993 GT2: an FIA homologation special with only 57 cars officially built for the road.
Fitted with a highly developed 3.6-litre turbocharged engine, the 993 GT2 stripped out the standard Turbo’s four-wheel drive transmission and focused on maximum power to weight. As the racing version was built to run wide slick tyres, the bodywork has cut away arches, draped in riveted flares. It is truly the ultimate air-cooled adrenaline rush.
No one can say how many cars survive from the original 57 road cars, but we may assume a few casualties in the last 20 years. It would also be reasonable to assume that the surviving examples include few low owner, low mileage examples. This makes our latest 911 a significant opportunity for serious collectors.
