This special 2002 Porsche 911 GT2 was ordered new by one of the most prominent Porsche collectors in America who also happens to be one of the most successful comedians ever. Spec’d new in Paint-to-Sample Adriatic Blue (the only 996 GT2 to ever wear said color), it is a stunning example to behold. A number of other options included its interior in natural leather in black, the carbon interior package, black mats with Porsche lettering, and a host of Porsche Exclusive Programme/Special Wishes including: Aluminum instrument dials, A/B pillar and headliner in leather, Sport Seats backs painted in Adriatic Blue, and the Porsche crest on the headrests. In total, the original window sticker price was $198,115.00 in 2001. That is the equivalent of $286,980.00 in 2020 money.
The first owner kept the car for a few years, driving it sparingly according to vehicle reports. The car made its way through a few owners before finding a new owner in Texas, who went on to own the car for almost 10 years. During this time period is when most of the current mileage was added to the Porsche. In early 2019 the car was purchased by a Los Angeles collector who knew the first owner well. He kept it in his private garage among his other Porsche collector cars, taking it out sparingly and having it serviced at Beverly Hills Porsche in Los Angeles, California. After enjoying the car for a year, he decided that it was time to part ways with the special GT2.
