2020 Porsche 911 GT3: Take A Look At That Rear Wing

Few cars get the heart thumping quite like the Porsche 911 GT3 and whenever a new one is around the corner, the hairs on the back of our necks stand up. The 992-generation 911 GT3 could very well be the best yet and fortunately for us (and you), it’s not far away.

Prototypes of the latest-generation GT3 first surfaced last year and initially, it was speculated that the sports car would, for the first time, adopt forced induction. However, we’ve seen since seen and heard prototypes testing at the Nurburgring and know that it will be powered by a naturally aspirated flat-six.

Like previous prototypes, the one our spy photographers snapped freezing its butt off is adorned with a towering rear wing featuring massive vertical uprights. Knowing what we know about the Porsche 911 GT3, we’re confident these ugly uprights won’t make it to production and the German company will instead develop a more aesthetically-appealing solution.

Now that the narrow body style of entry-level 911s has been abandoned by the 992-generation car, the new GT3’s stance won’t be massively different than lesser variants. However, the presence of the aforementioned rear wing, as well as a bespoke hood and new front air intakes, should give the sports car more than enough road presence.

Powering the new GT3 will be a naturally-aspirated six-cylinder engine. The displacement remains unknown but it will at least match the outgoing model’s 4.0-liter capacity and continue to rev to around 9000 rpm. Thanks to some Porsche magic, power could rise from 493 hp to 542 hp.

Porsche will probably sell most 992 911 GT3s with a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission but considering the outcry Porsche caused after eliminating a manual option for the 991, we anticipate customers being offered a stick shift with the new model.

The 2020 Porsche 911 GT3 is poised to premiere at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show before landing on streets in 2020.

    Gorgeous. Looks so mean. Love the huge wheels, brakes, rear end. Wish the 911 was more affordable. One of the most desirable cars out there.

    Notice how people criticize big rear wings on Japanese sports cars, but suddenly once the Germans start to use them everyone goes quiet.

    I think this car will once again surpass all expectations. With the recent unveiling of the 992 Aerokit and it’s resemblance to a baby brother 991 GT3, there will be even more to done to the 992 GT3 to differentiate that iconic rear wing. IMO, the rear wing on the 992 GT3 will be similar to the current IMSA RSR wing with the “goose/swan neck” integration with the vertical struts. No underside structural support can be seen in the spy shots,and the hideous vertical cladding has done a great job at masking the significant styling change. Question on the rear wing really is… will it be active a la DTM DRS? I sure hope so 😛
