The Porsche 911 GT2 (or GT as it was initially called) from the 993 Porsche series was built in order to meet homologation requirements for the GT2 class racing which had banned all-wheel-drive vehicles by the mid 1990's. As a two-wheel drive vehicle, the GT2 had significant weight savings as compared to the standard 993 Turbo from Porsche, making it instantly competitive in racing. The 993 GT2's original 3.6 L (220 cu in) engine generated a maximum power output of 316 kW (430 PS; 424 hp). The 993 GT2 features removable and replaceable bolt-on flares in order to fit wider wheels for racing and for quick replacement in the event of any race-related damage. According to RM Sotheby's, between 1995 and 1998, Porsche would produce 194 GT2's; 161 of those were for street use (Base Model), 33 were designated as Club Sport versions, and approximately 80 were built strictly for competition as a standard Racing variant and an Evo variant as well. Because of their limited production and racing heritage, the 993 GT2 is hightly sought after by collectors today.
