Porsche 911 becomes GT1 tribute car

By Steve Temple

One of the most outrageous looking Porsche race cars ever built was the GT1. Using the 911 as a starting point in the late ‘90s, the car had almost as many vents, intakes and wings as a Raptor fighter jet. On the track, the racer was a flat-out success at LeMans, winning the GT1 class at its debut.

Although designed for competition in the GT1 class of sports car racing, a limited-production street-legal version was required for homologation, which was basically a road-going race car. Only 22 of these were ever built.

If you’re looking for a way to give a 911 some similarly over-the-top styling, ArtCar, Inc. offers a GT1 tribute, which displays some slight differences for production reasons. Available either as a DIY package, factory install or complete turnkey, features include features include roll cage, chassis stiffening, quick-disconnect rear body shell, and functional air scoop to engine.

The car is generally built on ‘70s through ‘90s 911s, but a Boxster can be used as a donor as well. Some other tribute bodies or cars available by custom order are the 550 Coupe Panamericana, 959, 718 RSK 550 Spyder and 993 lightweight, among other reproductions and restorations.
