2020 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Will Be Your Wingless Manual Dream Machine

Porsche continues the development of the 992-series 911 GT3 on its favorite testing ground, the Nurburgring, with the prototype pictured here by our spies believed to feature the much loved Touring package as it misses the iconic fixed rear wing.

Instead, the black 992 tester uses the same retractable spoiler with the rest of the range but features different bumpers and hood, deeper side skirts, a lower suspension, big wheels with sticky tires and a set of rather powerful brakes.

The rear end also gets a diffuser which appears to be unobstructed by the twin centrally mounted tailpipes for maximum downforce. What’s interesting is that the front bonnet appears to feature an air intake on its lowest section, indicating at a solution similar to the S-duct Ferrari used for the 488 Pista.

Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger  has already hinted that the 992 GT3 models will retain a naturally aspirated flat-six engine; that powertrain will be related to the one that debuted with the 718 Cayman GT4 and is rumored to produce at least 520 HP (527 PS).

One key feature of the 911 GT3 will return, and that is the six-speed manual transmission. We still don’t know if Porsche will offer the same deal to its customers, meaning a manual-only Touring package and a manual option to the ‘regular’ GT3 in addition to the dual-clutch transmission. Whichever way they choose to move forward, customers will still get to row their own gears and that’s what matters the most, at least for some of them.

The upcoming Porsche 992 GT3 Touring will continue to target those who want the purest performance for the road, leaving track addicts with the regular GT3. There are no naturally aspirated high-end sports cars left with a manual transmission and that will make the 2020 Porsche 992 GT3 Touring even more special when it’s finally launched.

    The stick gives a more visceral experience, but the automatics now out can shift faster.

      The Autos can be fun, but Porsche’s Manual is simply mechanical and being mechanical means it is engaging to row your own gears.

    Better yet the GT3 Touring is brilliance, emotive, and pretty much perfection. This is a beast with magnitudes of soul.

    Stop it. I can only get so erect.

    I believe that I want to get a 992 GT3 Touring with a fixed ducktail in brown/ bronze with black and white checkered cloth seats in a manual with 21 inch Fuchs. My inlays will be non-treated wood and I want a black Carrera sticker on the side of the car.
