Go back to an earlier era of sports cars shattering the limits of performance with the 1996 Porsche 911 GT2. Its 993 cubic inch engine with turbo features a slimmer, lighter model with rear-wheel-drive, making the 911 GT2 500 pounds lighter on the front end. That lightweight frame helped this Porsche 911 harness the power of its twin-turbo intercooler M64/60R engine. With 430 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque, this model erupts from 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds, on to a top speed approaching 190 mph.
Like any Porsche, sublime performance meets an alluring aesthetic. This edition uses all-aluminum doors to fashion the iconic under-the-hood trunk and sultry body that only a 911 can capture. 18-inch alloy wheels featuring a magnesium interior and aluminum outside let this vehicle whip around corners with ease. Carbon-fiber and ceramic combination brakes are incorporated to help contain its enthralling agility. With adjustable front seats, the sports car is as comfortable as it is thrilling to be behind the wheel of. This model is only one of 194 units available with just 18,712 miles on its odometer. Sotheby’s put this contemporary classic on its online auction block as lot number 435, with a winning bid of close to $900,000.
