Chris Harris reveals bits and pieces of the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3


A few days ago, Motor1.com was invited by Porsche to board a prototype of the next-generation 911 GT3. But the “tested” car was still partially camouflaged. It didn’t take long for us to discover the final, standard version.

In his latest video for Top Gear, Chris Harris is allowed by Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger to take a quick look at the front and rear parts of the car.

Not only can we see the final design of both shields, but we can also see the front air intakes and the rear spoiler. This pretty blue hue is probably the launch color we’ll see when the 911 GT3 is unveiled in the near future. Note color-matched rim flange, and contrasting red brake calipers.

If you’re not a big fan of the somewhat “did you see me” rear wing, you’ll be happy to hear that Porsche will be releasing a Touring version again. Spy photos have shown prototypes with a simpler rear, and there could also be a “duck tail” spoiler for a more retro-looking derivative possibly bearing the suffix “Classic”.

Power will come from the naturally aspirated flat-six with a displacement of 4.0 liters and an output of 510 hp. That’s a 10bhp increase over the older 911 GT3, while the car will be available with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed, dual-clutch PDK. Go for the automatic model and the car will be equipped with a manual type shifter on the transmission tunnel. Why ? Because that’s how Preuninger likes to change gears on Porsches equipped with PDK.

We already know that the brakes will be bigger than before and an optional ceramic composite package is going to be offered for more stopping power.

Now we have to wait for the 911 GT3 to reveal all its secrets during its official presentation. But as we now know that she is ready, it should not be long!
