Porsche is finally lifting the veil off the new 992-based 911 GT3 during a special live-streamed event that will start at 9 AM ET.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 is going to be the first GT variant of the 992 model family, featuring a high-revving naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that will be available with a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK or a six-speed manual transmission.
A few months ago, Porsche GT division boss Andreas Preuninger also revealed that the new GT3 is going to be the first road-legal 911 with double wishbones at the front axle. That’s huge news, especially for those customers that actually use their GT3s on track, while the wider tracks of the 992 body are also going to play a role in extracting even more speed around the corners.
Thanks to our countless spy shots over the years of the 911 GT3’s development -and a revealing sneak peek on video a few months ago- we also know a few things about its very aggressive aero agenda, which includes the gooseneck-style rear wing and a huge rear diffuser. Preuninger admitted that when they picked the new wing’s shape, it was purely for aerodynamic purposes, as the specific design allows them to take advantage of the wing’s entire underside.
But the biggest reason to celebrate the arrival of the new Porsche 911 GT3 is that a carmaker will offer you a new driver’s car with a naturally aspirated engine and a manual transmission in 2021. The fact that it’s a Porsche makes it even better.
Stay tuned for the full details after the big reveal.
