Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition finished in
Fashion Gray over a beautiful Black Alcantara and Leather Interior
showing just 39 miles on the odometer! The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

producing 430 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque through a rear-wheel-drive
and a 7-Speed Manual Transmission.
Built to celebrate Rennsport Reunion V at Californias Mazda Raceway
Laguna Seca, Porsche created a limited-production model of its 911
Carrera GTS coupe. Appropriately dubbed the Rennsport Reunion
edition, 25 examples were built and quickly purchased by collectors
as soon as they were announced.
Conceived by the late Bob Carlsen, then head of Media Relations for
Porsche Cars North America and former Porsche factory driver and
well-known vintage racer Brian Redman, the pair believed that a
gathering of like-minded enthusiasts centered around Porsches most
iconic road and racing cars could be successful. Choosing to host
the first Rennsport Reunion at Lime Rock Park, Connecticut, in July
of 2001, the event quickly became a mainstay in the Porsche
community. The second and third Rennsport Reunions were held at
Daytona International Speedway in 2004 and 2007 and then relocated
to Laguna Seca in 2011, 2015, and most recently, 2018. All six
events have proven tremendously successful, drawing hundreds of
entrants and thousands of paying spectators.
Each Rennsport Reunion GTS coupe was painted Fashion Grey, a
paint-to-sample color well known to enthusiasts that date back to
the 356 and further outfitted with black and red stripes on the
doors roof, hood, and rear decklid. Inside, the black interior
features both leather and Alcantara. Optional extras include the
desirable 18-way adjustable sports seats and an upgraded Bose
stereo system. Further differentiating it from other GTS coupes,
the dashboard and door-sill covers are finished in carbon fiber and
boast Rennsport Reunion Edition identification. The Rennsport
Reunion logo appears on the center console. The Sport design
steering wheel, door panel trim, floor mats, and both seat
headrests are all stitched in contrasting Carmine Red, a color that
also appears on the seat belts and tachometer face.
Delivered new to Porsche North America, It is believed that this
example was their press and show car and has been preserved in
virtually as-new condition since leaving the production line.
Today, it has been driven less than 39 miles from new, making it
one of, if not the lowest mileage example in existence and a true
collector's item. Importantly, it comes with all original owner's
manuals and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
With the introduction of the 992-generation and turbocharged
second-generation 991 Carreras, the naturally aspirated 991 models
will continue to be well regarded by collectors and enthusiasts,
and within the scope of the GTS models, these 25 Rennsport Reunion
Editions are clearly the rarest, most desirable, and challenging
991's to obtain.
