Facelifted Porsche 911 GT3 Leaks Online, Manual ‘Box Looks Likely

A number of images of the facelifted Porsche 911 GT3 have leaked online, giving us a view of the updated model set to resurrect the manual transmission.

These images came courtesy of Autoforum.cz and were picked up from an official Porsche configurator on their Dutch website. Immediately, it is obvious that we are looking at the 991.2 generation GT3.

Up front, the car sports the slightly reshaped headlights of lesser 991.2 models as well as the more subtle and sleeker LED daytime running lights. Additionally, the new taillights from the 991.2 range are featured, making the rear end of the iconic German sports car that little more aggressive.

As with the current GT3, the updated model will feature a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six engine, rather than the larger 4.0-liter unit of the GT3 RS. Even still, power should rise moderately from the 475PS (468hp) mark closer to the 500hp mark.

Beyond the improved engine and new exterior components, the key talking point about the new car is its inclusion of a six-speed manual transmission. According to reports, Porsche has been prompted to reintroduce a stick shift after dissatisfaction among owners after the firm decided to ditch this option for the 991 GT3.

In all likelihood, the facelifted 911 GT3 will be unveiled in the coming 12 months.
