Porsche conducts final tests of the refreshed 911 GT3

September 15, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A prototype of the new generation Porsche 911 GT3 sports coupe was spotted on tests. At this stage of testing, the new product was compared with the version of the model that is currently available on the market. The changes in appearance can already be seen.

The next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 is (hopefully) gradually approaching its official debut, but the German automaker has yet to complete all the necessary tests. In the current testing phase, the sports car is being compared to its direct predecessor.

Thanks to a new batch of “spy” photos, we can finally compare the 911 GT3 generations 991 and 992, as they say, side by side, and you can easily see that there are already significant differences in the front.

The side profile is largely unchanged, but we noticed that the new version of the sports coupe will not have massive air vents on the rear fenders.

Several details tell us that this is definitely the all-new 911 GT3. These include huge center-locking Y-spoke wheels, and a huge rear wing with a pair of round tailpipes. The rear bumper design doesn’t look final as it still has fake plastic panels.

Most likely, the new version of the model will receive the same power plant as the current 911 GT3. Porsche is expected to continue to use a version of its naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine, but its output will be increased to 550 horsepower from 520 hp. in the current 911 GT3 RS.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the iconic Porsche 959, which participated in the Paris-Dakar rally, appeared on sale. One of three examples of the Porsche 959, which was built for the legendary rally in 1985 and is kept in private collections, was put up for auction by Joe Macari Performance Cars on Friday 11 September. It was this instance that Jackie X was driving when he had an accident.
