Chassis: WP0ZZZ99ZWS393002
The second 1998 specification 911 GT2 built, this car was sold new to French gentleman racer François Lafon. He had the car liveried by German pop-art painter Peter Klasen. The striking art-car was then raced by Lafon and Jean-Pierre Jarier in the FFSA French GT Championship with great success. Its racing career came to an abrupt halt due to an accident at the Le Mans round in September of 1998. The damage could be repaired but not in time for the final races of the season, so Lafon opted to get a brand new car. The second car was also painted in the Klasen livery with the understanding that the original would not use the art-car colours again after it was repaired.

Fully repaired and now painted plain white, chassis ZWS393002 returned to the track in May of 1999 and was raced in a couple of FIA GT races by Lafon and Jarier. That summer, it was sold on to Freisinger Motorsport, who fielded the car for Wolfgang Kaufmann and Michel Ligonnet at Oschersleben and Donington. At the end of the year, it was brought to the United States to race at the Petit Le Mans and in several more FIA GT rounds. In 2000, it continued to be raced by Freisinger, making appearances at Daytona and Le Mans. The best result came in the fall of that year when Kaufmann partnered with Hubert Haupt to win the Lausitzring round of the FIA GT Championship. At the end of that year, it was retired from contemporary racing.

Restored to its 2000 Freisinger Le Mans colours, it has more recently returned to the track for several outings in the Endurance Racing Legends series.
