The Porsche 911 GT2 (993) is the first-generation model of the Porsche 911 GT2. Production began in 1993 and ceased in 1998.
The 993 GT2 was conceived as a homologation model for the GT2 class but was produced in limited numbers. Technically, it is based on the 993 Turbo but utilises a rear-wheel drive drivetrain. The car shares the interior of the Carrera RS.
