Porsche 996 GT2

Porsche 996 GT2

Coupé, 2003


  • Carbon Interior Package
  • RUF Shift Knob
  • Low Mileage!

Arctic Silver over Black Natural Leather, Showing 20,048 Miles, Carbon Interior Package, Leather Headliner, Rear Half Cage, RUF Shift Knob.

This 2003 Porsche 911 (996) GT2 was sold new by The Porsche Exchange in Highland Park, Illinois, in November 2002 and is equipped with $14,230 in factory options. Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic Over Natural Black Leather interior, this GT2 shows 20,048 miles and is in fantastic condition throughout. Although the GT2 looked similar to the all-wheel-drive 996 Turbo of the time, it featured a fixed rear wing and enlarged extractor vents in the rear, and it weighed 220 lbs less than the Turbo. When the GT2 came out, it was equipped with Carbon Ceramic Disc Brakes, making it the first road car to come standard with the now ubiquitous high-performance braking system. Although the GT2 was designed to be one of the most hardcore variants in the 996 range, the interior is still a fantastic place to spend time, and this one was exceptionally well-optioned.

The vehicle in detail

When you open the door, you are greeted by a set of hardback sport seats wrapped in black Natural leather and Alu-Look aluminum trim on the steering wheel and center console. Behind the front seats sits a half cage where the rear seats would have been in a standard Turbo and really drives home the performance credentials of this car. The interior Carbon Fiber package fits the door armrests, center console trim, and dashboard with carbon accents that were uncommon in the period. A RUF shift knob and aluminum pedals have been added to this car which both match the silver trim found elsewhere in the interior and increase the quality of some of the major touch points in the car. A leather headliner was optioned on this car, and it has also been fitted with cruise control, a CD stereo, and climate control, so it will be a pleasant place to spend time on longer drives. Sitting in the back of the GT2 is a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter Mezger flat-6 rated at 456 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. This engine sends power through a 6-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels, which makes for a truly exhilarating experience when both turbos are spooled up. With a top speed of nearly 200 mph, the 996 GT2 can run 0-100 kph in just 3.6 seconds and will complete the quarter mile in a mere 12.1. When new, magazines discussed the GT2’s unruly nature and how it would accentuate any of the driver’s bad habits behind the wheel, making it a real challenge to reign in. But those who have returned to the 996 GT2 with hindsight have found that although the GT2 is still exceptionally fast and exciting, in an era of 1,000 horsepower hypercars and modern performance tires, it is totally manageable- just so long as you treat it with the respect it deserves. ‘ With just 303 996 GT2s coming to the United States, they have become quite collectible and are extremely difficult to find in good condition. Although they do come up for sale somewhat frequently, many of those 303 examples now carry salvage titles or bear the scars from years of track use. This car is in largely stock condition and has clearly been well cared for over the past 20 years and is ready to become part of a new collection.

Dating back to Porsche’s earliest turbocharged production car, the 930, turbocharged 911s were always rear-wheel drive. When paired with the 911’s unique, rear-biased weight distribution, these cars had notoriously oversteer-prone handling, leading to the infamous “widowmaker” moniker. But with the introduction of the 993 Turbo in 1995, Porsche implemented an all-wheel drive system as they moved the “Turbo” lineup more into the grand touring realm. Yet for the few enthusiasts who still craved the excitement of a rear-wheel drive turbocharged 911, Porsche made a car called the GT2. Although Porsche built a 993 GT2, it was in ultra-limited production and was never offered for sale in the United States. It wasn’t until the 996 generation that the GT2 became a slightly more mainstream model. Produced between 2001 and 2005, only 1,287 996 GT2s came out of the Porsche factory, with just 303 cars coming stateside.
