Makes the 918 look like a car for commoners.
When you think of homologation legends, the Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion (street version) is quite often left off the list. This might be because it was a relatively recent creation, dating from 1996, at least a decade after the great Group B cars. And it might also be because, with just 25 of them built, the 911 GT1 is even more rare than the Ferrari 250 GTO. Just take a minute to let that sink in before you watch this video of one on the streets of Monte Carlo.
Though it bore the 911 name, the GT1 had much more in common with the 962 race car, and even used its 537-horsepower mid-mounted air-cooled engine. Quite different from what contemporary Type 996 911s were using.
