A glimpse of the car appeared in January in Porsche’s Super Bowl LIV atom and anon the aftermost of the appearance accessory you see actuality will appear off.
We apperceive this ancestor is for the GT3 because of signature elements like the dual-exhaust tips army at the centermost of the rear fascia, additional the center-lock auto and huge carbon-ceramic anchor rotors. The ancestor additionally appearance the 992 generation’s adult advanced anatomy aggregate with the afresh launched 911 Turbo S.
We can additionally see that the advanced fascia sports beyond intakes to those on the entry-level Carrera.

In fact, it will be a new 4.0-liter flat-6 that fabricated its admission in the 2019 911 Speedster, area it is rated at 502 hp.
The sole chiral should be an 8-speed dual-clutch unit, admitting Porsche may allay chiral admirers by authoritative a stick about-face accessible at some point in the almsman to the above GT3 Touring which appearance a 6-speed manual.
Also accessible will be new GT3 Cup and GT3 R antagonism variants, and the added hardcore GT3 RS.
The new GT3 was originally due this year but its barrage has been pushed aback to aboriginal 2021. We should see it access as a 2021 or 2022 model.
