Porsche 993 GT2. The Un-Driven. Kuwait

Travelling around the Middle East as often as I do, I still can’t quite believe I stumbled across a Porsche 993 GT2 in Kuwait, with  just 15kms on the clock from new.

I felt like I was in a dream! As a kid I used to dream about finding cars in crazy places; gardens, barns, abandoned buildings etc and was actually lucky enough to find a 1956 VW Beetle a number of years ago that had been locked away early on in the 60’s, only for it to reappear on the streets of Coventry, England some 40 years later.

These kind of finds sadly deminish as the years progress, however having moved to the Middle East, I have found that “Barn finds” have become an opportunity again. I can safely say however that I never expected to stumble across one of my dream cars, wrapped up with delivery miles on the clock…I still can’t quite believe it – but it’s true.

The Porsche 993 GT2 has to go down in history as one of the most epic machines ever to come out of the doors of Jurgen Barth and Roland Kussmauls skunk work’s. The car was developed specifically for racing and punched well above it’s weight thanks to being force fed by a pair of KKK K24 Turbo’s. Developing 430bhp in street trim and restricted to a believed 57 units (road legal) it is a rare beast in todays mass produced crowd.

So to find one of these monsters with delivery mileage on it and a history of nothing, is a dream come true for any Porschephile or even petrolhead. Yes, the car would need a tremendous amount of re-work to bring it back to road use but I would be game on. Now I wonder how my wife will take to the house being put on the market?
