See The New Porsche 911 GT3 And GT3 Touring In Action At The ‘Ring

The Porsche 992 Carrera has been around for almost a year now, but GT3 models remain ripe for an upgrade. Test mules for the duo have been spied on at race tracks around the world, but most recently at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

First thing to note: 911 purists can rejoice as the moaning engine note associated with the models endures. The exact details are still unknown, but we’re betting the new model has an updated version of the German automaker’s naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six. Who knows how long he’ll be unstimulated, but it’s great to know he’ll live for at least another generation.

In the looks department, it looks like Porsche isn’t afraid to leave their mules unscathed. Both vehicles have black paintwork graced with an incredible amount of bugs from all the miles of tough testing they endured.

We also couldn’t help but notice that the GT3’s gooseneck rear wing is much larger than its 991 predecessor – it also features the same design as the RSR race car. Even the tamer Touring model features a smaller ducktail spoiler that appears to be an active part of the aero package. Up front, we also noticed a new aggro front fascia, fitted with scoops and vents to keep the new beast cool under pressure.

We can’t wait for Porsche to put its test driver Lars kern in the hot seat and see where the 992 models fit alongside the 991 GT3’s 7:12 lap around the Green Hell. We’ll have to wait and see what the two look like on the road, but things look promising on the track.
