This is one example of just eleven units ever built, which is why the auctioneers are expecting it to fetch close to $2 million – as the model is found in pristine condition and with very low mileage.
This hugely desirable 911 example has only clocked about 7, 000 km (4, 349 miles) on the odometer and was Porsche’s bid for the homologation purposes for the FIA GT1 racing series. Today, with classic Porsches becoming a sought-after commodity, the 911 GT2 Evo is a purist’s delight and can be called a racer with a road permit. At the heart of the machine sits the air-cooled biturbo flat-six 3.6-liter engine packing 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 490 pound-feet (664 Newton-meters) of torque, sent to the rear wheels only via a six speed manual gearbox.
This is not your regular 190-mph toting machine either – the Evo is the hardcore version of the already crazy GT2, so comes up to show its credentials with the ultra-wide fenders and the huge rear spoiler, complete with prominent spoiler with inlets for brake and oil cooling up front. Inside, everything was deemed unnecessary and there’s only the body-hugging driver’s seat, a beefy roll cage, and a steering wheel. Mecum Auctions will offer the car to the highest bidder early next month during an auction in Dallas.
