A total of 194 Porsche 993 GT2s left Stuttgart, with only 47 of these special cars being GT2-R models. Of these highly coveted race versions, this particular example for sale by Atlantis Motor Group is the ONLY Guards Red version delivered the US and it stands unique in its unmolested, fully-restored form.
Purchased new from the factory in 1996, it was immediately shipped to the US and was used to qualify for that year’s 24 Hours of Daytona. While it qualified, it did not race, and this signified the end of its competitive life. This two-owner car has been used for private track days and gentleman racing, with both owners treating it as the prized race car that it is. To Atlantis Motor Group’s knowledge, it has not suffered any major accidents, which again makes it unique among GT2 Race versions.
Subsequent to the dealership’s acquisition, they supervised a year-long, no expense spared full restoration, bringing it back to her original factory spec. The “boomerang” wing, which was added immediately upon its arrival to the US, as was done by every race team, is the only equipment not listed on the factory spec sheet (which the dealership has in their hands). The Bob Holcombe-prepared engine has less than 5 hrs of use. The original specification sheet and invoice from Porsche are included.
These cars rarely come up for sale, and this pristine example is priced at the market at $1,500,000.
Over the years, Porsche’s “Special Wishes” Program has turned out several unique vehicles. But very few are as rare or sought after as this 1-of-2 for the World 1997 993 Twin-Turbo Coupe finished in PTS Ocean Blue over Black leather.
This factory prepared Turbo has many one-off options including full X-50 Power Package (ECU, Engine, Oil Cooler), Turbo S rear quarters and GT2 front lip spoiler and 92-liter fuel tank. In addition, it has extensive exclusive optioning, featuring Carbon Fiber Interior, Colored Seatbelts, Painted Hard-Back Sport Seats with Heating & Power Height Adjustment, Yellow Brake Calipers and more.
It has traveled only 14,000 miles and remains in pristine condition, with no needs. This Special Wishes/Exclusive Program/Paint To Sample car is the rarest of rare and offers the buyer an opportunity to be part of Porsche’s storied history. Besides all that, it is one of the most beautiful Porsches we have ever seen. Porsche COA included. Fairly priced at $399,000.
