Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cup

The 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cup is the first near-standard nine-eleven that Porsche develops to campaign in one-make series like the Carrera Cup. A modern race car with the purity of a classic GT, the Carrera 2 Cup is based on the 911 Carrera 2 of 1989, and later on the Carrera RS from 1992. Thanks to its pared-down cockpit equipped with just a race seat and fire extinguisher as well as forgoing all sound insulation and comfort features, the 911 Carrera 2 Cup weighs in at just 1,120 kgs. The variable ride-height is 40 to 55 millimetres lower than that of its production counterpart. Stiffer springs, special shock absorbers, adjustable anti-roll bars and 911 Turbo brakes with specially-adjusted ABS make this Carrera a true racer. The 3.6-litre engine with catalytic converter initially delivers 265 hp, increasing to 275 horsepower in 1992. Via a race clutch and five-speed gearbox, torque is delivered to the rear axle. All race cars in the Porsche one-make cups are technically identical, they all run on a control tyre and identical fuel. Only the suspension may be setup for each race track within the framework of the regulations. From 1990 to 1993, Porsche builds 342 units of the 911 Carrera 2 Cup.
