    you remove the wing, you put a cheap black part and you pretend it is a special car... not sure how good is the market for these 991.1 but in some places...it is a disaster.

    It might not be "extraspecial", and agree on the cheap plastic part, but d@mn, does the wingless RS look GOOD!

    Porsche 911 GT3

    Technical fine-tuning for enhanced performance

    Stuttgart. The new Porsche 911 GT3 is packed with technical highlights. During development, the engineers pursued one aim in particular: to further enhance the performance of the high-performance sports car without compromising on everyday usability. The cooperation between the technicians from series development and the specialists from the Motorsport department played an immensely important role here. “When we have the same engineers who develop our race cars also working on the design of a new GT car for the road, that is the most direct technology transfer I can imagine,” explains Andreas Preuninger, Director GT Model Line.

    More than 160 hours of fine-tuning in the wind tunnel
    The technological progress in the area of aerodynamics is particularly apparent. It is the first time that a suspended rear wing has been fitted on a Porsche series production car. Its swan-neck mounting is used in a similar form in the GT racing car 911 RSR and the one-make cup racing car 911 GT3 Cup. Since two aluminium brackets now hold the wing element from above, the airflow can pass undisturbed across the underside, which is aerodynamically more sensitive. This new design led to a reduction in the flow losses and not only increased the downforce, but also resulted in well-balanced negative lift conditions together with many other detailed measures. “We developed the aerodynamics of the new 911 GT3 in around 700 simulations. We spent more than 160 hours fine-tuning the car in the wind tunnel,” explains aerodynamics engineer Mathias Roll. The angle of attack of the new rear wing can be set to four different positions. Correspondingly, the front diffusor can also be adjusted to four positions. “The new 911 GT3 generates 50 per cent more downforce than its predecessor at 200 km/h just in the ex-works setting. In the setting with maximum downforce, the increase is as much as over 150 per cent,” adds Roll. Similarly to motor racing situations, the aerodynamic balance of the new 911 GT3 can be individually adapted to track conditions and individual driving style. “Not only are the components very similar to those used in our race cars, the development methods are also similar,” explains the aerodynamics engineer. “In our ultra-modern wind tunnel in Weissach, we do not just drive straight ahead, we simulate every conceivable driving situation. We make the car roll, pitch and yaw in order to simulate the physical influences on the track.”

    High-revving engine with motorsport DNA
    Testing on the test rig during the development of the 4.0-litre high-revving naturally aspirated engine was even more time-consuming. “In total, the engine in the new GT3 ran for more than 22,000 hours on the test rig. During testing, we repeatedly simulated typical circuit profiles and ran the engine at full throttle for a very high proportion of the time,” explains Thomas Mader, Project Manager GT Road Car Engines. The engine, which responds eagerly when the accelerator is pressed, is based on the racing engine of the GT3 race car 911 GT3 R, and is also used virtually unchanged in the 911 GT3 Cup. At 375 kW (510 PS), its output is 10 PS higher than in the GT3 predecessor model. It delivers its maximum power at 8,400 rpm and the electronic limiter only cuts in on this outstanding revving ability at 9,000 rpm. Maximum torque has been increased from 460 to 470 Nm. 

    As in motorsport, precise valve actuation at high revs is delivered via rigid rocker arms. The proven VarioCam technology ensures camshaft control adapted precisely to engine speed and load condition. A crankshaft with large bearing diameters, wide connecting-rod bearings and plasma-coated cylinder liners ensure lower friction losses and reduce wear. “The individual throttle valve system is taken straight from motorsport and significantly improves responsiveness,” says engine specialist Mader.

    The high longitudinal and lateral acceleration forces produced by the new 911 GT3 on race tracks mean that the oil supply for the high-revving engine is of particular importance. Like in motorsport, this is performed by a dry-sump lubrication system with separate oil tank. With a total of seven suction stages, this routes the engine oil back into the external reservoir quickly and efficiently, while lubrication of the highly loaded connecting-rod bearings takes place directly via the oil pump through the crankshaft. “The engine in our 911 GT3 Cup race car essentially differs in respect of just two components: the exhaust system and the engine control unit. Everything else is identical,” explains Mader. 

    The engine of the new 911 GT3 was also put through its paces by the engineers and test drivers off the test rig. “We conducted 600 emissions tests during development in order to meet the strict standards,” says Thomas Mader. Very strict standards were also applied in terms of the engine's endurance: it had to perform flawlessly on a continuous stretch of more than 5,000 kilometres on the oval at Nardo in Italy at a constant speed of 300 km/h, stopping only to refuel. 

    Porsche is offering the new 911 GT3 at a starting price of 170,969 euros including VAT and country-specific equipment*. Delivery is set for May 2021.

    *Change in the equipment options and price as a result of the change in the model year.

    The consumption and CO2 emission values were determined in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The NEDC values derived from this should continue to be specified for the time being. These values cannot be compared to the values determined in accordance with the NEDC measuring procedure used up to now.

    Further information on the official fuel consumption and official, specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is available in the publication entitled ‘Guidelines on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger cars’, which is available free of charge from all sales outlets and from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT).

    I posted sometime ago that Porsche’s development of synthetic fuel may be the savior of the 911 and other ICE’ cars.. kiss

    Also, he confirms what most of us already knew. The 992 GT3 isn’t a major change from the 991.2 GT3.

    Re: 992 GT3

    Depends on what do you think change is. The double wishbone struts and the aerodynamic advantages, are quite significant. And do I remember correctly that the new GT3 is 17 seconds faster on the NBRG?


    Re: 992 GT3

    The 17 sec improvement was done by one of the top Porsche drivers. Other professionals have improved by only 7 sec. An amateur may get a one second improvement depending on the track configuration.

    That said, I believe the suspension change is significant for track junkies. But for 95% of the drivers, the improvement amounts to very little considering the significant price increase of the car over the 991 GT3.kiss

    Re: 992 GT3

    Thanks for the pics. I think darker colors suit the new GT3 better. On the orange car, you can barely see the design elements. Maybe it is just the exposure of the photos?!

    Re: 992 GT3

    I too thought the Signal Yellow version looked better than the blue.  


    Re: 992 GT3

    Blue for me all the way, and I’m leaning more and more towards that color for my December build... although signal yellow is very cool, but just over the top for me. Blue is the limit of my extravagance lol

    Looks a lot like Bahama Yellow. Doesn't look bad on the pudgy GT3angry

    Re: 992 GT3

    Those of us who had a glimmer of hope for rear seats in the touring package, will most likely be disappointed. My dealers reply from regional office when asking about the touring package...

    “The SoS for GT3 Touring Package is planned for 05th May 2021
    I do not have the final specification however I believe it will only come as a 2-seater (also there is no option to delete the rear seats) hence my assumption”


    Re: 992 GT3

    This mystifies me. Every people carrier on the planet has removable seats. Why wouldn’t Porsche just make them removable and let people decide? Is it really to keep people with kids buying Carreras or Turbos?

    For those with a long memory, Porsche marketing always denies their next move until it is launched, so that customers are focused on what is available now... Smiley

    The Porsche 997 Carrera was only to be available in 2-wheel drive, until they launched the 4-wheel drive version... Smiley

    The Porsche 991 GT3 would only have a PDK gearbox, until they also offered an optional Manual gearbox...  E0F26BDD-E91B-4EF4-964B-7C4204B9E420.gif

    The Porsche 911 GT3 would only be available with a Rear Wing, until they offered the 991 GT3 Touring... Smiley

    It’s worth keeping in mind that there are no technical issues with rear seats, as yosee in the Porsche 992 Turbo S... Smiley
