Porsche continues to create a “charged” new-generation 911 GT3 coupe (factory index 992) on the Nurburgring racetrack. The prototype depicted here, according to the authors of the images, is equipped with the Touring brand “package”, since it does not have a hefty rear wing.

Instead, the German novelty uses the same retractable spoiler that all members of the 911 family have. The car received new bumpers and a hood, other side skirts, a lower suspension, large rims with sticky tires and a set of high-performance brakes.

At the back of the spotted car is a diffuser, from which two exhaust pipes peep out. Judging by the shape of the diffuser, the machine receives a sufficient amount of downforce to maintain controllability even when passing the coolest turns. Interestingly, in the front of the hood on its lower part there is an unusual shape of the air intake – the Italian high-performance Ferrari 488 Pista has a similar S-duct.

 Andreas Preuninger, the head of the Porsche division that creates racing modifications to the company’s models, has already hinted that the GT3 series will have a naturally aspirated six-engine engine.

Moreover, it will be similar to the one that appeared in the powerful 718 Cayman GT4 and, according to rumors, will produce at least 527 hp.

 Another key feature of the 911 GT3 will return – a six-speed manual gearbox. We still don’t know whether the proprietary dual-clutch gearbox will be offered.
