Porsche decided to put the final touches on the updated 911 GT3 without any sort of camouflage on the test car, giving us a first proper look on the refreshed bodywork.
As expected, the changes are really subtle, with Porsche just wanting to bring the 911 GT3 in line with the rest of the range – at least visually. A pair of new bumpers front and rear along with a set of the latest lights, complete with LED indicators and daytime running lights, all around is really the main new features.
These features were became known a few months ago, when a series of 3D drawings were leaked from an official Porsche configurator in Holland, showing us a digital representation of the new 991.2 GT3.
The main news are under the skin, as Porsche decided it’s time to bring back the manual gearbox option. Specifically the six-speed unit that debuted in the limited 911R which is a new gearbox and likely to be offered also in the updated GT3 RS. The normally aspirated 3.8-litre flat six will remain in its place, making the GT3 the only non-turbo model in the range while power is expected to be increased slightly from the current 468hp.
Since this is Porsche we’re talking about, expect to see minor chassis updates and changes, just to make the new 991.2 GT3 ever more desirable and, well, faster. With the test car now running around without any camouflage, Porsche is going to officially reveal the whole thing in the coming days, so stay tuned.
