Type 991. 430 bhp, 3,800 cc DOHC horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, seven-speed manual transmission, front suspension with MacPherson struts and anti-roll bar and multi-link LSA rear suspension with anti-roll bar, and four-wheel ventilated and cross-drilled disc brakes. Wheelbase: 96.5 in.

Billed as the preeminent gathering of Porsche race cars, road cars, and enthusiasts, the Rennsport Reunion was first held in 2001 in Lime Rock, Connecticut. It was the brainchild of racer Brian Redman and Bob Carlson of Porsche Cars North America, who sought to bring their love of Porsche to the racetrack in an effort to celebrate the company’s storied history. So well received was the first event that it quickly outgrew Lime Rock and was instead held at Daytona Motor Speedway in 2004 and 2007 before moving to Laguna Seca for 2011 and 2015. While only five events have taken place over the last 15 years, Rennsport Reunion has quickly gained a reputation for attracting an incredible assortment of historically significant Porsches and is considered a must-attend event for any Porsche owner or enthusiast.

With collaboration from Porsche in the event from its beginnings, Porsche stepped up its involvement for Rennsport Reunion V by unveiling a special edition of the 911 Carrera GTS at the event. Finished in Fashion Grey with unique black and red decals on the doors, hood, roof, and rear decklid, the Rennsport Reunion Edition cars stand out as distinctive from first glance. In addition to the GTS package, the Rennsport Reunion Edition cars are also equipped with a number of desirable options, including 18-way power sport seats, 20-inch Sport Classic wheels, Porsche’s PASM adaptive suspension, a Bose stereo, and rear park assist. Only 25 examples would be built, all fitted with a seven-speed manual transmission, and all destined for North America.

Presented in virtually as-new condition, this particular example needs nothing and would be a perfect daily driver or addition to a modern Porsche collection. Many enthusiasts believe that the 991.1 generation of 911s will be the last naturally aspirated models of Porsche’s iconic sports cars. As a result, many high-performance, low-mileage examples are already commanding a strong premium in the marketplace. Further, many believe the GTS to be the most exciting and livable model of the current generation, perfectly straddling the gap between the standard Carrera S and the more aggressive GT3. With its production run of 25 examples only adding to its pedigree, this is an automobile for a true Porsche enthusiast to drive, enjoy, and cherish for many years.
