Porsche has published a teaser for a new generation of powerful 911 GT3January 27, 2020
In its promotional video, which is dedicated to the 54th U.S. Football Super Cup, the German brand Porsche caught a glimpse of the new generation 911 sports coupe in the GT3 track version.
Back in 1997, the German brand used the U.S. Football Super Cup as an excuse to advertise its new model. This year, for the 54th in a row of this grandiose game, the automaker published a video, which also has a place for advertising. The video called The Heist (translated as table of contents, theft) “dazzles” the most popular Porsche models, both old and new – but it also has an “Easter egg”, which we almost missed. Almost.
Pause the video at 0:44 and you’ll notice a blue Porsche 911 with a chunky rear wing and large rims.
This car was at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart (Germany), this place is shown in the background in the video. The car really looks like a high-performance GT3 generation 992, judging by the taillights, the stocky wing and its front. An interesting car stays on the screen for several seconds, disappears, and then reappears at 0:49, where the camera “runs” onto the car even closer to better show us the design of the disks and a little front of the car.
Despite the fact that we do not see the car in full, we believe that this “Easter egg” is a way for Porsche to say that the official presentation of the new 911 GT3 will take place during the week of the US Super Bowl. If our assumptions are correct, this means that there are only a few days left to see the performance of the sports coupe 991 (generation 992), which is intended for the racing track.
The new GT3 will feature an improved 4.0-liter naturally aspirated in-line six-cylinder engine. This motor will be modernized – its power will rise from 494 to 550 horsepower.
