Porsche has provided an update on their upcoming motorsport-focused 911 GT3 (992-generation) model. The highly revered sports car will be officially unveiled on the 16th of February.
The latest teaser image shows the upcoming all-new 911 GT3 fitted with a rear wing stand dubbed the “swan neck”, due to its heavily curved shape.
This “swan neck” wing was also seen in the latest 911 GT3 Cup racer that was launched last December. Porsche says this configuration allows uninterrupted under-wing airflow, delivering more downforce.
Automotive portals who have access to prototype versions of the all-new 911 GT3 happily revealed that the new model will retain the naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six engine, with an output of close to 510 hp and 470 Nm found in the 911 Speedster.
Headlining the development work on the chassis is the double-wishbone front suspension layout as seen in the latest 911 GT3 Cup racer. The new architecture is derived from the 911 RSR racing car, while previous generations (even the old Cup racer) adopted the proven McPherson strut setup.
Other GT3-specific items such as two full-sized bucket seats, instrumentation, and central exhaust will be featured too. The link to the video presentation of the all-new Porsche 911 GT3, scheduled to only go live on the 16th of February, can be found here.
While we wait, watch how the fully electric Taycan fares against a regular 911 GT3 RS and a Cup racing car at a race track!
