    new GT3 Cup "S"

    Porsche GT3 Cup S

    Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, adds another member of
    the 911 family to its range of products. The new GT3 Cup S, based on the
    road-going GT3 RS sportscar, is created exclusively for racing purposes.
    The Weissach-developed and built vehicle will race in international
    champion-ships which run in accordance with FIA GT3 regulations.

    To a large extent, the 3.6-litre boxer engine is identical to the power
    unit used in the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup and the international Carrera Cup
    championships. Power output has increased by 20 horsepower to now 440 hp
    (324 kW) at 8,000 rpm. Maximum torque is up by ten Nm to 430 at 7,250 revs
    per minute. The power increase results from optimised engine electronics
    and a modified exhaust system.

    In contrast to the GT3 Cup, the body of the Cup S is not based on the
    road-going GT3 but on the GT3 RS. In the wider wheel arches, considerably
    larger wheels can now be mounted. At the front, the rims measure 10.5
    inches in width with 12 inch wheels fitted at the rear. The front section
    and flares are significantly different to the GT3 Cup components. An
    adjustable front-splitter generates more downforce at the front axle. The
    rear-wing is wider and positioned higher than the Cup version and provides
    more downforce at the rear axle.

    Several suspension components for the GT3 Cup S have been taken from the
    more powerful GT3 RSR which races in the GT2 class at international
    long-distance championships. The braking system of the GT3 Cup S was
    adjusted to the increased power compared to the GT3 Cup. At the rear the
    diameter of the brake discs has grown by five millimetres to now measure
    355mm.

    The new GT3 Cup S costs 250,000 Euro plus national VAT and is scheduled for
    delivery to customer teams from April. Additionally, Porsche offers a kit
    to upgrade the 2007 Cup models to the GT3 Cup S standard.

    So what do all the racers in the same category do with regular Cup cars? This car seems to be a nice step towards a full-out RSR.

    Re: new GT3 Cup "S"

    and when i think that i had a chance to drive it this year in the GT Master.

    Re: new GT3 Cup "S"

    I hope those fenders find their way onto the MkII RS!

    Re: new GT3 Cup "S"

    Still not as light or powerful as an 18 year old Ferrari F40... but Porsche are getting closer!

    Neither are Ferrari's of today...it's not the same company since il commendatore passed...

    But you're right on...they need to get lighter while keeping or increasing current power outputs.

    Re: new GT3 Cup "S"

    I hope its street legal , right?

    Re: new GT3 Cup "S"

    Sure. On any "road to hell" that is
