The Vault presented by Hagerty®

The Porsche GT1 is the first mid-engine 911, and the first 911 to feature a water-cooled engine. Porsche constructed a small series of three GT1’s for the 1997 FIA GT Championship, all of which were based on 911 GT2 Works team cars. This car (Chassis #101) competed at Le Mans Sebring and Laguna Seca.  It also won the Three Hours of Zhuhai in China and successfully competed in the British GT Series. An unusually successful car the GT1 ultimately won eight races and achieved 21 podium finishes of the 36 competitions in which it was entered.
