Updated coupe Porsche 911 GT3 Touring “spotted” on tests

November 11, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The journalists have published a video showing the prototype of the updated Porsche 911 GT3 Touring. The car sounded like a real Formula 1 car.

Porsche is currently preparing a revamped GT3 coupe in several versions for the presentation, and we believe that the prototype of the novelty, which is shown in these pictures and videos, is the Touring model. It lacks a crazy body kit that would consist of a huge rear spoiler and ventilated fenders, but it does have a powerful engine that sounds great on top of that.

Apparently, the captured novelty received an updated version of the 4.0-liter engine, which can reach 550 horsepower in the case of the next generation GT3. Even without additional aerodynamic body components, the car feels pretty confident when cornering at fairly high speeds.

The Touring was popular with the previous generation GT3, offering a naturally aspirated engine.

Despite the absence of a large rear wing, the GT3 still boasts significant downforce – an effect achieved by an active spoiler at the rear and a splitter at the front. The car also has hood vents and a center exhaust pipe. Apart from small pieces of black tape hiding tiny details of the updated exterior, it looks like we have a completely production-ready version of the car.

We expect the revamped GT3 to debut soon, but the exact timeline is still unknown. According to insider reports, the debut should be expected in early 2021, and we can be shown as many as three variants of the GT3. There is a standard model with a large fixed rear wing, a Touring version shown here, and possibly a Classic version with a duck tail spoiler.
