Porsche 911 GT3 Spied Making A Glorious Noise On The Nurburgring
The Porsche 911 GT3 is back at the Nürburgring Nordschleife and the surrounding roads for a new spy video. The machine makes an impressive sound on the track.
Engineers haven’t changed the 911 GT3 much since the last time we saw it on the Ring. Compared to the standard Carrera model, the front end gains fascia with a large central opening and vertical entrances in the corners. The revised cap has a pair of vents at the tip of the nose.
At the other end, Porsche installs a massive wing on the rear deck. It has a gooseneck mounting which gives the room even more visual weight. There is also a duck tail spoiler at the back for a little more support. A pair of circular tailpipes emerge from below the center of the bumper, and there is a diffuser on each side of the pipes.
The new GT3 would have a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat six-cylinder engine. However, improvements to the engine would have pushed power to around 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts), compared to 520 hp (387 kW) compared to the previous 911 GT3 RS.
If the aggressive look of having a huge wing isn’t your style, then the more discreet 911 GT3 Touring (spy photos in the gallery above) is also under development. It has the same front fairing and the same ventilated hood as that of this video. However, the model uses the tail of the Carrera with an active spoiler that swings up at higher speeds.
We still don’t know when the new Porsche 911 GT3 will debut, but we expect an unveiling before the end of the year. Considering the coronavirus pandemic, search for the first one online.
