Known History

 

1995 Porsche 993 GT2 with 1997 Factory Evo Package

s/n 393079

Period Livery and Graphics with Black Interior

 

Representing significant advances over the 964 that preceded it, the 993 is the ultimate development of the original Porsche 911, which still retained the air-cooled engines and fundamental body architecture of the first 901’s unveiled in 1963. The GT2 racing variant, named for the class in which it was to compete, was based on the 993 Turbo, and incorporated the twin turbocharged variant of Porsche’s 3.6 liter flat six, the new 6-speed gearbox, and significantly revised multilink rear suspension. Also available was the Evo kit, which, through the removal of restrictors, the fitment of larger turbochargers, and a number other alterations, resulted in an additional 150hp for a total output of about 600hp. The Evo package also included numerous other GT1 style modifications, including a higher rear wing, lower weight, and larger fenders.

 

This particular car was purchased new by the owner of Rohr Motorsport from Porsche Motorsports N.A. in April of 1995. The car was campaigned in 1995 with driver David Murry in the SCCA World Challenge series, with outings at Phoenix, Mosport, Lime Rock, Road America, Trois-Riviers, Road Atlanta, and Sears Point. The car had to its credit five outright victories, and won the SCCA World Challenge driver’s Championship and was a contributor to the Rohr team championship win. In 1997, the car took the IMSA GTS-1 team, manufacture, and driver’s championships as well. The car ran the Daytona 24 Hour race in 1996, driven by Murry, Hurley Haywood, John O’Steen, and Scott Goodyear, and then ran the 1996 season in the SCCA series as well. The car ran at Daytona again in 1997, driven by Jochen Rohr, Andy Pilgrim, Harald Grohs, and Arndt Meier, placing fifth overall and winning its class. The car also ran the Sebring 12 hour, where it placed second in class, as well as the remainder of the season, competing at many major venues around the United States including Watkins Glen, Sears Point, and Mosport. The car ran the Sebring 12 hours in both 1998 and 1999, placing sixth and first in class. The car is featured in Porsche Sport 1997, and is featured several times, including in its current livery at Daytona. It is one of the two cars on the cover, in fact.

 

More recently, between April of 2008 and August of 2009, the car was entirely restored from top to bottom by Andial. Besides the tub, almost every component is new, and the total cost of the restoration was approximately $384,557.88 (some invoices are in Euros and were converted to dollars conservatively at $1.40 to the Euro). The engine is completely new, including the case, which was supplied and stamped by Porsche in Germany. The engine was built by Porsche Motorsports North America with completely new components. Everything was replaced with new parts, regardless of function or condition, right down to the engine sheetmetal. The car is equipped with new K27 turbochargers with separate Tial wastegates, as part of the factory-supplied Evo package, which also includes the intercooler. A new exhaust system was manufactured, and new valves, pistons, cylinders, cylinder heads, connecting rods, bearings, rockers, headers, and oil pump were also included in the rebuild. The completed engine was tested on the dyno to yield 624hp. The roll cage was restored as necessary. All body panels were replaced with correct Porsche items supplied directly from Porsche AG in Germany. The correct carbon fiber doors were employed, and the spoilers/splitters and brake components (including rotors, hardware, calipers) were also sourced directly from Porsche in Germany. All four fenders were replaced, as were the deck lids, and many other smaller items like the rocker covers door handles, and latches. The gearbox was completely redone with all new synchros, new 9:31 ring and pinion, and new 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th gears. The clutch, pressure plate, and clutch fork were also replaced. The car received new adjustable camber plates as well. The half shafts were replaced, and the fuel cell restored. New JRZ shock absorbers with remote reservoirs were fitted, and new wheels supplied directly from BBS, along with new tires. The sway bars were replaced as well. The car was repainted in its entirety, and the car was fitted with new seals and all new lights. The 1997 Daytona-winning livery was recreated with new decals (the decals alone were $5000). The car also has a plumbed in fire extinguisher system.

 

Given the scope and quality of the work performed, the car is of course in spectacular like new condition. The car has been started and driven, but has no track time yet. As the odometer indicates, the car has covered just 1 kilometer since completion. Consequently the car is in outstanding like new condition in all respects. The paintwork, graphics, lights, splitter, glazing, and spoilers are all excellent. The wheels are brand new, and even the tires and brakes are like new. The rotors still have the machining marks on them. The inside is equally tidy, with all components new or like new, including the steering wheel and seat. The engine compartment and front compartment are also like new, as is the underside, which is immaculate and hugely impressive from a technical standpoint.

 

This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a Porsche race car that has it all. The car is a unique Evo model and has exceptional history and provenance, a no-expense spared restoration by the finest in the business, and is in superlative condition. This is a truly collector caliber car for the owner seeking perfection, and is the finest available in every relevant respect.
