2009 911 GT2

The fastest road-going 911 of its time keeps climbing

The 997.1 GT2 stood as a landmark of its time as it was the fastest road-going 911 to ever hit the streets. Equipped with a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six, it delivered an incredible 530 horsepower and 505 lb-ft of torque. This powerhouse accelerated from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, reaching a top speed of 204 mph, making it a true marvel of automotive engineering.

This 2009 911 GT2 is one of just 194 units brought to the US for the model year and shows just 3,800 miles on the odometer. Finished in Basalt Black Metallic over a Black leather & Alcantara interior, this example features extended leather with Red stitching along with Guards Red dials behind the steering wheel.

With only 3,800 miles on the odometer, the Basalt Black Metallic paint is in excellent condition, as you would expect, and shows even paint meter readings in the gallery. The interior is flawless as well with touch points, seat bolsters, and sills in very good condition.

The car appears to be well serviced early on with records included with the sale and some in the CarFax up to 2019. Unfortunately there aren’t many post-2018, but the car has only seen ~200 miles since then.

With so few cars sold, we’ve only seen eight examples cross the block here in the US over the last twelve months. Our Spotlight car is the second lowest mileage example we’ve seen, and likewise sold for the second highest price we’ve seen at a final bid of $343,000. Fair deal for a rare and powerful car, that in my opinion, will only go up from here.

Two things that go hand-in-hand? Porsche and watches. Every Porschephile I know is also a watch nerd. And like Porsches, watches can be enjoyed at all price points. 

On a recent visit to Pittsburgh, SML subscriber Allan S. tossed me his new Sheffield Allsport watch. Sheffield Watches is a reboot of an old dive watch brand founded in New York in the ‘50s that was synonymous with producing low-price point, quality watches. The weight of the stainless steel case felt robust, as did the feel of the screw-down crown and unidirectional bezel—definitely quality. As for price point, the Sheffield diver punches way above its weight at $108. You can’t buy more watch for the money, period. 

And that’s what Sheffield Watches’ founder Jay Turkbas set out to accomplish, reviving the brand's ethos and creating a watch synonymous with quality, technology, and affordability. Taking inspiration from his original Sheffield watch from the ’70s and his 30-plus years of experience in product development and innovation, he knocked it out of the park with a durable watch capable of exploring the depths of the ocean one day and cars & coffee the next. And all at a price point equivalent to the $13 the watch originally cost back then. Take a moment to give Sheffield Watches a look. I know you’ll be just as impressed as I am.
