RWD Turbo Widow Maker: 2003 Porsche 911 GT2

This 2003 Porsche 911 GT2 is one of only a few hundred sold in North America between 2002 and 2005, and the seller reports that it’s been meticulously maintained over its recorded 31k kilometers. These hardcore GT2’s offered just under 460 turbocharged HP delivered solely through the rear wheels, and as such have earned a bit of a “widow maker” reputation–many in the press referred to it as the “last old-school 911.” Find this one here on Craigslist in Vancouver, BC, Canada for $140k CAD (~$106k USD today). Special thanks to BaT reader Rob D. for this submission.

The “fried egg” headlights fitted to all 996 generation cars will likely never be viewed as one of Stuttgart’s finer styling decisions, but they’re not as bad as the first generation Cayenne at least, and that classic 911 profile still shines through. GT2 spec vents, wings, and twist spoke wheels are all excellent as well, and paint finish appears to retain a deep, even shine.


Says the seller: “Vehicle is in mint condition has been meticulously maintained and looked after and it shows! Only 31,000 km. Comes with recent full mechanical inspection as well as certificate of authenticity from Porsche and a clean car fax report.” The ad doesn’t disclose of much else, but photos speak for themselves–the car has clearly been looked after, which seems to be particularly evident inside the cabin.

Like with most wasserboxer 911’s, there’s not much to see under the engine lid. As far as we can tell however, things do look to remain stock, which is nice as it wasn’t uncommon for these cars to be modified–from what we’ve read, 456 HP is more than enough. As it typically goes, different reviewers published slightly different figures, but generally speaking 0-60 MPH was dispatched in 3.5 seconds, with steam finally running out at 204 MPH.

Like all limited production 911’s, these cars seem destined to become very valuable in the near future–$104k is no small potatoes, but GT2’s aren’t likely to dip much further before swinging back up the curve.
