The 1998 GT1 futured Porsches first carbon fibre chassis as a monocoque, which safed a lot weight compared to the 1997 GT1 (over 100kg)... next to that they had build only a single 1998 GT1 spec street version... the 1998 LeMans rules required only one street legal production model which was not more like a race car with street tires and licens plate... the engine delivered normaly 700hp but the race rules ordered a 33.91mm air restrictor which reduced the power to 550PS..I don´t know it the street version was without restrictor..

BTW why the 1998 version is 300 kg lighter than the 1997 version?

Thanks! I thought they are the same, because they both have 544 PS and both have 996 front lights.

look at the pictures... the 1998 GT1 has a completely redesigned front and the chassie was lower to reduce frontal surface area to increase topspeed for LeMans...

look at the frontal/side view of both cars and you easy see that the 1998 GT1 recived a huge makeover... and they needed to produce street versions of it to be allowed to race it at LeMans
