The formula was upended in 1996 with the introduction of the Porsche 911 GT1. This was in very few ways, still a 911, but its participation was permitted by homologation. Yes, very few road-going, mid-engined, water-cooled 911 GT1s exist (and indeed fewer roam the streets). This mutant (and the CLK GTR like it) re-defined the term homologation special, and as such is somewhat of a unicorn.
In the video above, EVO get their masterful mitts on a GT1 Straßenversion at the Porsche experience centre, to deliver impressions of what driving a genuine racing car for the road is really like. Appropriate viewing material, given a parade of GT1 monsters including the venerable Porsches, McLarens and Mercs will be taking to the circuit at 75MM for a high-speed demo in the coming weeks.
