Porsche 993 GT2 on US soil at Lime Rock

Porsche 993 GT2 Lime Rock 1

Happy Halloween everyone!

Yes, this is a real Porsche 993 GT2. It’s here in America, and its registered in Montana, the land of the supercars… or at least it would seem that way with all the Montana plates on all sorts of crazy cars. #Loophole

This 993 GT2 came here from Japan and now resides in New England, I believe. The owner said he had driven it to the show that day.

This is really the first 993 GT2 I’ve seen up close in person. I say “really” because I did catch a glimpse of the stunning blue 993 GT2 that recently sold at auction for $2.4M in the garage at the Porsche museum in Stuttgart. However, it was under a cover, and I wasn’t going to try and pull it off.

Obviously the 993 GT2 is one of those holy grail 911s fit for only the wettest of dreams. One of only 57 road-going 993 GT2’s made, it comes from a time when cars were lighter and much simpler, when 430 turbocharged horsepower in a rear engine / rear wheel drive package meant daddy might not be home for supper.

I’m happy to be able to check another one off my list! Now if I can finally manage to track down a Bugatti EB-110…
