    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    while I respect and love a gt3 for what it represents I feel the wing is getting more and more out of place....

    Maybe the new one does. This can't be the RS, because the wing is too huge.

    Porsche Secretly Testing New 911 GT3 Cup Racecar, Swan Neck Wing Is Huge

    (19 May 2020)

    “While we're all focusing on the street car prototypes doing their thing on the Nurburgring Nordschleife, Porsche has recently taken to the GP course of the infamous German circuit to test what should be its next racecar, the 911 GT3 Cup (yes, this is the motorsport incarnation of the GT3 road model).

    Just to be clear, three are three tiers of Neunelfer racecars, listed here in the order of their sharpness: the said GT3 Cup, the GT3 R, which is based on the 911 GT3 RS street car and, of course, the see-me-at-Le-Mans 911 RSR, which has embraced a bonkers (for the Neunelfer) mid-engined configuration by switching the position of the engine and the gearbox.

    Now, the air intakes on the rear fenders of the prototype spied here would suggest this is an R or and RSR. However, the clues in favor of the Cup can't be ignored. 

    For one thing, the front apron displayed here appears identical to the one displayed by the latest 911 GT3 road car prototypes. Then there are the "civilian" mirrors of the tester - both the R and the RSR feature sleeker racecar mirrors.

    Oh, and let's not forget the timing - having already been teased via an ad and expected to launch within the next twelve months, the 992 Porsche 911 GT3 street car is almost here, so it would make sense for the German automaker to test its Cup circuit incarnation.

    Body width is also an indicator (the Cup is the narrowest), but this seems hard to distinguish without the possibility to compare the machines.

    For the record, Porsche explains that the GT3 Cup is built on the same Zuffenhausen factory production line as its road-going counterpart, while pro drivers set up the vehicle at the company's Motorsport Center in Weissach. 

    Regardless, our spy shooters mentioned that engineers from the Porsche-owned Manthey Racing teams were on site, along with Porsche factory drivers, as you would expect for such a development.

    As far as the tech side is concerned, you can expect a naturally aspirated flat-six delivering around 500 hp and a sequential transmission. So, gentlemen racers should be prepared for the upcoming adventure.”

    It's too narrow to be anything else. Both the 911R and the RSR are much wider due to the regulations.

    All the Cup cars before had their air intakes on the rear deck. It would seems for the up coming one they moved it to the side.

    But at first glance I think the front bumper does't quite have enough openings for cooling though,

    cup shape = road GT3 shape. this is something else unless it is a first for Porsche to  differentiate the street GT3 from the GT3 cup...non sense. this is copying the shape of the 3RS so probably a 3RS ClubSport Smiley

    Damn...that new style GT3 rear wing is hideous...enlightened 


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    The wing doesn't look good, indeed.

    However, I think that people who want the GT3 for tracking won't mind. The rest who choose a GT3 for other reasons will opt for the wing-less Touring version, most probably.

    Why not? They are already milking the GT4 Clubsport and the GT2RS Clubsport brand. GT3RS Clubsport is just the missing piece right in between.

    Once the GT4RS comes out, they can change the offering to a GT4RS Clubsport and complete the whole lineup.

    Moves very well. Compare it with how slow slow and ponderous the BMW (4 series?) looks at  1:03-1:20

    Also the mounts of the swan neck wing look slimmer and hence better than in previous videos. Probably they dropped the camouflage.
