For the upcoming 1996 season the Motorsport department improved the GT2 by making certain upgrades, partially to meet changes in the regulations (safety couplings in the fuel system) but also by making simple improvements from experience gained in the GT2R’s first season. A Porsche Motorsport Rundschreiben / circular dated November 29th 1995 summarised all the technical changes to be made for 1996:
These four backmarker cars were the first to receive these changes, which included the new outside oil-filler in the side panel, first-generation Evo front bumper, flat under-floor, Macrolon plastic rear and rear-quarter windows, plus a host of smaller technical upgrades made in areas such as the rocker arms, the lubrication system of the turbochargers, the throttle cable and reprogramming of the ECU.
