1997 Porsche 911 GT1 street versionEnlarge Photo
The particular model is a 1997 version, finished in white but with a black interior. It has a conventional manual transmission and just 560 miles on the clock.
In case you’re wondering, the 911 GT1 Straßenversion is the road-going version of the Porsche 911 GT1 race car, which was built as part of a homologation ruling that required a handful of such models to be built--25, in fact.
In spite of its 911 title, the car actually had very little in common with the regular 911 sports car of the time, the 993, though the two shared a front chassis. The rear of the 911 GT1, however, was derived from the Porsche 962 race car that preceded it.
The version that’s up for sale in Japan has a 700 horsepower engine in its rear and is capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in under 4.0 seconds and a top speed in excess of 190 mph.
