New Porsche 911 GT3 And Touring Models Set The Ring Ablaze

Video / Comments

These are going to be epic cars.

The Porsche 911 GT3 is one of the fastest and best-handling cars ever made, yet every time a new model comes out, the people in Stuttgart somehow find a way to make it better than everything that came before. We've seen the new 992 version testing at the Nurburgring with its massive rear wing already and marveled at how incredible it sounds, and this new video of it and the GT3 Touring reinforces our belief that the new models will not only sound good but handle like they're on rails once again. Just watch this new video if you have any doubts.

Complete with aggressive new aero aids that will only get even more extreme when the next GT3 RS comes out, the latest 911 GT3 looks like it's going to move the goalposts once again. The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six returns to power the GT3 but we don't know exactly how much it will send to the rear wheels. We expect that it will be more powerful than the outgoing model's 500-odd horsepower and it should get to 60 mph in around three seconds flat. Fortunately, the existence of the GT3 Touring means that Porsche is sticking to its word and continuing to offer a manual gearbox.

With more and more spy shots and videos coming from the famous Nordschleife circuit, development on the new models is presumably nearing its end, which means that we should get to sample that exquisite chassis for ourselves fairly soon. Unfortunately, the pandemic has meant that this stage of development has arrived later than expected, which in turn means that the launch of the new models may only happen early next year, but we feel like the world has been through enough bad news this year already. Come on, Porsche. Finish these awesome cars in time for an early Christmas present.
