Most pictures here are a link you can click on, that will take you to the picture, and related pictures in the same set.
My take on John Sinkgraven’s frame 13a (of 13a-15a) from a pit facility with 1996 or 1997 Mobil 1 Porsche Factory GT1 team:
I made this derived work from John’s original. I’d link to it but its not up anywhere at the moment. I’m trying to convince him to post it. But this gets the gist. He’s given me permission to share my derivative work non-commercially. Sharing non-commercially is what I’m all about. Thank you, John!
My derivative of one of the original photos offered as references by Renaissance Models in France. With their kind permission: https://flic.kr/p/2jeCftD
My picture above is based on the lower right image of this set of 4:
Renaissance Models GT1 1996 photos: They have 5 individual frames and 2 sets of 4.

A clear view looking straight back at the passenger side firewall, Note TAG 3.8 electronics use a big, central, grommet for the 2 big and 2 little cables, and additional cables come through at other places
Renaissance’s Detail 2 set: My picture is after the lower left:
The photos of their 1996 911 GT1 kits, built and unbuilt, the instructions in PDF form and the other two years (1997 ‘evo’, 1998 overall winner) are well worth your time as well.
John Wiley’s photos:
John Wiley’s front view of a customer car engine, circa 1997, as removed from a working race car. All the fiddly bits are present or at least were once attached. Thanks for putting this one up, John!
Mr. Wiley’s *other* 911 (993) GT1 engine picture- the back end of an engine still attached to a car, Chassis 101, in “G-Force” markings, before “Blue Coral”. All the coils, cables, brake calipers, etc, that the mechanics would prefer NOT to disconnect are… NOT disconnected! My kind of detail photo! Thank you for this one too!
Art And Revs, the Fine Automobiles Gallery had the FATurbo car:

One pretty good photo from my set of the Rohr 1996 car:
And here’s the picture by Kahmed79 that inspired me:
The rest of my contribution, ROHR 993/1996-style customer car photos are here, from RennSport IV, Laguna Seca:

Here’s where I found the links above, and a translation of the first half of the magazine article. Anyone up for translating the second half? http://www.theautounion.net/index.php?topic=11.0
Here’s a nice article on SpeedHunters about the #38 Champion Porsche 1997 evo car.
I had links to a set of 5, second-hand, customer spare GT1 engines that were for sale from GMG Racing in Southern California. The shop eventually took them down, but kindly sent copies of the 5 photos and permission to post them, so they’re in my Flickr account:
Here are the 3 I think are most useful for building the Tamiya kit:
GMG Racing #002 customer engine:

GMG Racing #006 customer engine:

GMG also had what looked like a disassembled engine:a and a 1998 engine (with carbon fiber intake manifold, tidy wiring, etc.)

They have 88 images for customer cars, 101, 104 and 109.
A nice site from the Netherlands illustrating 911 GT1 colors from their various owners and appearances. There’s some really cool stuff here, not just the shark marking, though obviously that’s a keeper in my favorite colors of gray and white… http://www.lemans-models.nl/MERKEN/porsche_GT1.htm
Broken links that need to e fixed:
There’s also the spare engine that went with the 1997 factory car that sold at Gooding’s auction at Amelia Island some time ago.
Andial, the independent US Porsche race car shop, have a web site, and that web site has a photo gallery of a street 911 GT1 getting an overhaul: Lots of pictures here of things you won’t see anywhere else – underside of the engine, intercooler removed from a complete engine. Unfortunately, since this is a street version, the intake is slightly different, possibly 959 derived, so there’s a single throttle body with 6 runners to the cylinders, rather than 6 individual throttle butterflys. Still…
