For Sale: 1-of-1 PTS Iris Blue 993 Porsche 911 GT

In 1995, Porsche introduced the 993 model, which was the last of the air-cooled 911s. Due to the success of four-wheel drive vehicles in competition, such as Porsche’s 961 and Audi’s Quattro, all-wheel drive was banned by most racing organizations by the mid-1990s. To meet these regulations, Porsche created the GT2, a rear-wheel drive version of the Turbo model that also featured weight savings and was immediately competitive. In order to homologate the GT2 for racing, Porsche had to build a certain number of street-legal GT2s.

The GT2 had a 3.6-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine with higher boost pressure than the standard turbo model, now producing around 430 hp, and was mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. It also featured truncated wings, removable and interchangeable bolt-on flares, a large rear wing, and lowered bodywork to reduce drag. Porsche completed 194 roadworthy GT2 and 78 racing cars. This particular example was optionally fitted with a unique Iris Blue Metallic paint finish, manual wind windows, radio deletion, airbag deletion, comfort seats and air conditioning.

This car was newly commissioned by Phillipe Aunay who was a prominent figure in the Porsche world, co-founder of the Porsche Center Rouen and President of the Porsche Club of France for around 25 years before passing away in 2004. An esteemed collector of the two fastest Porsches (road and race) and curator of the wildest colors, his car ownership has been varied. He owns no less than three 2.7 RS, including a Lightweight, a 2.8 RSR, a Light Yellow 964 3.8 RS, a Blood Orange 964 RS, and a Guards Red 3.0 RS. Among other things, there was also the “Toblerone” painted 3.0 RSR.

The car comes from Monaco where it was kept by a former Formula 1 driver and the odometer reading is 43,680 km from new, all the panels on the car are original and undamaged. This car is for sale at DK Engineering and is one of the most desirable examples we have seen to date.
