Is there a Porsche Fan In the world that deserves this Porsche art print more than you?
Look again at this picture. This is the fabled 1998 Porsche GT1,
a car that exists in the land of the superlative and is universally revered.
Now what would make a Porsche driver and collectors drool over a Porsche like this?
Let's find out.
McLaren's dominant success at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans may have had a greater long-term effect on Porsche, because it was only after the lauded McLaren F1 GTR finished in three of the top four places, including First Overall and 1-2-3 in class, that Porsche felt compelled to completely reinvest its energies in sports car competition.
With GT car racing returning to Le Mans in recent years, Porsche had sent factory 962 prototypes to the Dauer racing team for competition, though Zuffenhausen maintained technical control of the cars and supplied the drivers.
Despite the covert corporate initiative, these so-called Dauer 962 GT examples performed admirably, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1994.
However, when pitted against the prodigious McLaren at the Sarthe race a year later, the thirteen-year-old 962 platform was obviously outclassed.
Six weeks after the defeat in 1995, Porsche management announced its intention to relaunch its factory-based GT racing program with the development of a brand new car that could directly compete with the McLaren F1.
Norbert Singer, a well-known Porsche engineer, was entrusted with designing the new car, which had to maintain simple 911 characteristics.
Singer began with the front end of a 993-based 911 and grafted it to the rear end of a 962, building a new tubular frame designed for mid/rear engine positioning and a rear transaxle in order to avoid the extensive process of crash testing that an all-new chassis would entail.
Singer packed a twin-turbocharged 3.2-liter water-cooled flat-six engine with 600 horsepower into this frame.
The outer packaging was completed with a futuristic 911-inspired carbon fiber shell.
The resulting first-generation 911 GT1 race car made its debut at the 1996 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the two factory cars finished Second and Third Overall and First and Second in Class, respectively.
Following the 1996 season, the FIA noticed that GT racing was still alive and well, so it purchased the fledgling BPR Global Endurance Challenge and renamed it the FIA World GT Championship.
Porsche further prepared the GT1 for the 1997 season with aerodynamic tweaks to the bodywork and a suspension revision, despite the fact that it was only qualified for the series because it had customer car orders in hand and physical homologation had yet to take place.
The updated racer, now known as the 911 GT1 Evolution (Evo), featured the headlights that would characterize the 996-platform 911 and faced a formidable new rival in the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR.
While the GT1 Evo failed to win at the 1997 Le Mans, another season of improvement, which included the incorporation of a weight-reducing carbon fiber frame, resulted in a blistering success at Sarthe in 1998, with the revamped 911 GT1-98 taking a commanding one-two finish over McLaren, Toyota, and Panoz teams.
Though development of the 911 GT1 Evo continued during the 1997 season, Porsche began production of a small number of homologated customer cars in October, with the goal of producing no more than 30 cars.
These so-called street models, or Straßenversion, included minor improvements from the Evo race car, such as a higher ride height for greater ground clearance, a slightly weaker suspension, more practical road gear ratios, and a milder engine tuning.
The interior, which featured upholstered sport seats and carpeting as well as a trimmed dashboard borrowed from the 993-platform 911, was the most visible difference.
The Street edition GT1 was capable of 194 mph and 3.6-second 0–60 mph sprints when it was launched in early 1998, and it cost $912,000.
The 911 GT1 is a rally car tuned for road use, not vice versa, according to modern journalists.
The Porsche GT1 Street version was made in a limited number of just 25 units, much less than the McLaren F1 that inspired it. It sits between two of Porsche's greatest road cars, the 959 and the Carrera GT, and occupies a unique historic link in the marque's supercar lineage.

Newbury Press is GREAT! Ease of ordering, the speedy order confirmations, prompt tracking info provided, to even the packaging of their products. It’s top notch and it’s evident this company does not cut corners. Highly recommended!
Marc. Denver Co Porsche 992 owner
This is a good company, they have been quick in delivery and honest in what they have advertised. I am well pleased with them and will do business with them again. Very Happy. Thanks
Michael R. Greenwich Conn. Porsche 356 owner.
I am a beginning art collector and I am well pleased with Newbury Press. They have been professional and patient, helping me through the ordering process. They did everything just as they said . The order even arrived a few days early. I have another order on the way and I have no worries that the process will have any problems. The order I received was made to be signed for and I truly believe that they have good security measures to make sure there are no snafus. And equally important, my product was in very good shape. Overall I would recommend this company to anyone looking to buy Porsche art. I can't wait to get my next package because I truly believe that I will be just as pleased.. I look forward to doing more business with them in the future. I would say they deserve an A+ rating.

Newbury Press has been one of the most impressive companies I have ever worked with. I have transacted multi million dollar collectibles and have received worse support, than the few thousand dollars I have spent with Newbury. This is a true rarity in today’s business world. Big or small purchases it doesn't matter Newbury Press, Alfred in particular is great to work with.

I started collecting Newbury Prints for over a year now and am pleased every time I receive my order.
The unique products, and steady private releases make Newbury Press a great up and coming company for me to get excited about.

Review by Andy H, Delaware
I will start this review by admitting that I love this company and it should come as no surprise that I wanted to share my enthusiasm and experience about this company with fellow car lovers that are always looking for great companies to buy their memorabilia or gifts from.
Just by looking at these prints you will know how desirable and different they are. You will also not need anyone to tell you, how well made and affordable these prints are, you will already know that having read the reviews of the other customers.
What I can tell you from my own experience is this, these are not run of the mill hangings, they are meticulously crafted over time with the best paper and care. They should not be confused with bedroom posters. These are for people that respect the car and the history they represent. These images cut out all the fluff you would normally see in average prints. These striking minimalist pieces focus entirely on the car and add a contrasting color strip which I think is very unique, compared to prints that feature small cars swallowed up by big backgrounds and trees etc.
Don't know, but when your paying for a top dollar steak should the steak be the biggest thing on the plate, or the veggies?
When dealing with Newbury Press, I like you, have not been spared having had some of my packages destroyed by mail carriers during Covid, but thankfully Alfred and his team took care of replacing everything very fast and at significant expense to them to make sure I was happy. This happened not once but twice during the height of the pandemic where packages were delayed or destroyed left and right if you remember. Both times they took care of everything quickly and efficiently.
I can honestly say that I am very happy with the product, the people and the great service Newbury Press provides which is more than I can say about some other more established outfits that completely dropped the ball repeatedly.
I am also happy that they believe in their product so strongly, that they offer a double money back guarantee. Fortunately I never needed it but it's nice to know it's there.
In my opinion as a customer, I believe and know that Newbury Press cares about their customer and will go the extra mile for them. They are really interested in a long term relationship and it shows. As a lifetime collector these are highly collectable, priced below what they should be going for, and will most definitely gain in popularity.
You will be pleased with this product, the company and it's solid traditional values.
