Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Is An RS In Racing Trim

Motorsport

You generally have to have a lot of time on your hands to keep all of the different Porsche 911 variants straight. Fortunately, this one is a bit easier to tell apart from the rest, since the 911 GT3 Cup isn't a street car, but a pure race car. Porsche has been building the GT3 Cup since 1998, but this generation is the first to actually be based on the GT3 road car.This shows how much faith Porsche has in the 911 GT3 RS, and Porsche knows it will drive sales of what is already the best selling race car of all time.

Porsche tells us that the 3.8 liter flat six in the GT3 Cup is "largely identical" to the one in the RS, although they don't elaborate on what keeps it from being completely identical.
