If you’re looking for an ultra-rare Porsche 911, this GT2 will suit your needs. Porsche only made around 1,300 of these "996" GT2 models — and just 300 or so came to the United States, making it one of the rarest Porsche models in recent history. It’s also developed a reputation for being one of the most dangerous and thrilling.
This particular 996 GT2 is in pristine condition, having traveled just 18,400 miles since it was sold new. Finished in silver with a gray interior, it also appears to be mostly unmodified, though I do note a few aftermarket items — like a roll cage and a shift knob. Those are common additions to this car, which was primarily designed for track use.
And, indeed, most 996 GT2 models have seen use on the track, which is where they belong. The 996 GT2 was essentially a 911 Turbo, except without all-wheel drive and traction control — two items that benefit the car by adding stability and improving the ease of use. True track-focused drivers would argue they don’t need those systems — but anyone short of the expert level could easily get into trouble with the 996 GT2, given nearly 480 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque.
It’s rare to find a 996 GT2 in such nice shape, as the model is known for being modified for track driving — and this one is especially desirable. It’s offered by EuroCar in Orange County, California, and it’s listed for $144,888 — reflecting a rise in market values affecting most rare Porsche models.
