New special edition 911 GT3 celebrates 30 years of Porsche Supercup

The Porsche Supercup has been one of the best-known and toughest customer racing series in the world for 30 years. In celebrating the 30th anniversary of the series, the organisers of this one-make series have decided to mark this special anniversary with a treat for themselves.

The project managers at Porsche Motorsport had asked the specialists at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to build a roadgoing 911 GT3 based on the 911 GT3 Cup in the 30th-anniversary livery. The unique model was completed in less than six months.

Highlights include a spectacular eight-colour paintwork design with the anniversary logo and a multicolour pixel mesh around the rear wheel arches. To add a touch more exclusivity to the model, the names of all 29 previous Porsche Supercup champions are painted (yes, painted) in gold on the rear bumper.

The project began with a standard Porsche 911 GT3 – the roadgoing version of the racing car used in the Porsche Supercup – before it was disassembled and rebuilt. If you’ve assumed that the multicolour paintwork is merely a wrap, the eight colours – GT Silver Metallic, Agate Grey Metallic, high-gloss Black, Meteorgreymetallic, Parliamentgreymetallic, Volcanogreymetallic, Grigiogranitometallic and Diamondblackmetallic – are all painted.

According to Porsche, the greatest challenge in the painting process was to precisely apply the multicoloured pixel mesh to several points on the dynamically shaped body. The number ’30’ painted in gold and finished with high gloss clear lacquer is another indication of exclusivity.

After the paintwork, the vehicle was reassembled by hand at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur and further customised with embossed anniversary logo on the headrests, centre console in Black/Aurum along with seat piping, and door panel stitching finished in Mojave Beige.

To recap, the 911 GT3, now sold in Malaysia, produces 510 hp and 470 Nm from a rear-mounted 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine to drive the rear wheels. With the quick-shifting PDK gearbox, it can do 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and flat out, the 911 GT3 will hit 320 km/h.
