- Text originally from the Porsche 911 GT1's Wikipedia page.
Towards the end of the 1996 season, Porsche made revisions to the 911 GT1 in preparation for the 1997 season. The front end of the car was revised including new bodywork which featured headlamps that previewed the all-new generation of the (996) Porsche 911 which would be unveiled in 1997. The revised car was known as the 911 GT1 Evo (or Evolution). As far as performance goes, the car had the same engine as the previous version, but new aerodynamic elements allowed the 1997 version to be considerably faster than the 1996 version - acceleration was better, although the top speed was still around 330 km/h (205 mph) on the La Sarthe Circuit (in the race, the GT1-Evo attained a top speed of 326 km/h). At Le Mans the works cars led the race but did not last the full distance; a privately entered 1996 specification GT1 managed 5th overall and third in its class.
The Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution was added in the Porsche Season Update as a low Class B car with the following statistics:
The 911 GT1 Evolution has an average top speed, mediocre acceleration and handling, and decent nitro. Similar to the Italdesign Zerouno, it holds little use in the game as it can struggle to compete with similar ranked and more popular cars like the Lamborghini Asterion.
