Porsche 911 GT3: Spotted before the official reveal
The 992 Porsche 911 GT3 was spotted testing at the Nurburgring recently, according to EVO. The car had practically no camouflage on it, and it will be the first 992-gen 911 from Porsche’s GT division. Because the previous-gen car was so good, this new model has a lot to live up to.
This new GT3 looks much like the cars of the past, but there are some noticeable differences as well. The car features a large double-skin intake for the radiators mounted up-front. The hood is vented in the car. The hood itself features some character lines that are almost exactly like the old car as well.
Around the back is where things look a bit different. The car gets a large wing. That wing sits above a ducktail that’s a bit more subtle than previous models. The underside of that ducktail has some venting and perforations as well.
Porsche 911 GT3 Engine
When it comes to the engine, EVO says it is likely a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine. Probably, the engine is similar to the engine in its predecessor. The engine is completely reworked. There has been considerable upgrade and tuning to the engine. It’s unclear what transmission Porsche will offer in this car. Many think it will get both a six-speed manual and a DCT. However, the car could launch with just the DCT and then offer the manual at a later date.
Porsche will reveal this car soon. Specs and Price information will be available during the reveal.
