2020 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Pounds The Tarmac On The Nordschleife

Earlier this year we stumbled upon a video of a 911 GT3 prototype that lacked the typical, for the model, massive rear wing. At the time, we speculated that the car was the upcoming GT3 Touring Package, and now came across yet another test mule that fits the same description.

Unlike others, this one featured the standard rear spoiler of the regular 911 from the latest 992 generation. It also sports a new rear diffuser and lacks the GT3 air vents behind the rear window for engine cooling.

That said, it does feature other typical GT3 identification marks such as the center lock wheels, oversized brakes, and central double exhaust pipes. This leads us to believe Porsche has already started working on the new 992-based GT3 Touring Package much earlier in the model’s life cycle than it did with the 991.2-based version.

Given the absence of interior photos, we can’t tell if this prototype features a manual transmission like its predecessor, but we sure hope it does, even as an option. In any case, the engine will still be a naturally aspirated flat-six, in all likelihood displacing 4.0 liters. Power should increase compared to the previous 911 GT3, with some reports talking of 520 HP (527 PS), which should be more than enough to satisfy prospective customers.

Logically, the production car will launch after the “regular” 911 GT3 that is expected to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, which means some time in 2020.

    Oh I like that spoiler.

  • SteersUright

    Despite the fact that I think the Panamera-styled rear-end looks awful and not very 911 at all, this car’s overall appearance is mean, low slung, and very, very desirable. That said, I would like to see the next-gen 911 look more like the original and get a bit smaller and lighter. And do not ever put another SUV or Sedan rear end on a 911. That high-mounted tail lamp looks so bad I’d find a way to replace the entire rear end with the previous generation’s if I could.

    Cool, another same old 911 shape.

      That’s what we all love!
