The Porsche 911 GT2 Clubsport is one of the rarest 993-generation models in existence, with a rumored number of just 20 ever being made, and now a very clean example has been listed by RM Sotheby’s for its upcoming St. Moritz auction.

993-generation 911s hold a special place in a Porsche fanatic’s heart, as it marked the end of the air-cooled “Mezger” engine era before the German marque moved to water-cooling. Its DNA is intrinsically connected to the ethos of Porsche: a six-cylinder, air-cooled boxer layout with twin overhead cams that featured in Porsches since the ’60s.

Porsche created the GT2 Clubsport because of ’90s homologation rules, meaning it had to produce a certain number of road-going cars derived from its FIA GT2 turbocharged 911 race car. Out of the 194 GT2 911’s built, just 20 were adapted to Clubsport specification, subsequently making it the greatest 993 around.

It is a hardcore car, featuring a lighter chassis and body kit that reduced weight by 200kg over the standard car, while power came from a 3.6-liter engine that produces 430 BHP, sending the car to 60 MPH in around four seconds and onto a top speed of 184 MPH — impressive figures still to this day.

This particular example is finished in black with options including a Becker CR11 radio and driver’s airbag — yes, these are optional extras — as well as yellow accenting to the wheels, instrument cluster, seat backs, and door pulls and the fitment of an electronic lap timer.

RM Sotheby’s expect this car to fetch up to CHF 1,300,000, or around $1.4m USD. Take a closer look at the 1996 Porsche 911 GT2 Clubsport above, and find out more online, ahead of the auction later today.
