New 911 GT3 spied


The new 991-generation 911 might have only just been launched, but already spy shots of the hardcore GT3 variant have surfaced on the netweb.

The pictures, taken by German mag Auto Motor und Sport clearly show bespoke bumpers front and rear, as well as a fixed rear spoiler and twin central exhaust pipes.

Other details for the new GT3 are sketchy, but expect power to be close to the 450hp achieved by the 997 GT3 RS, and a weight reduction over its predecessor of around 40kg.

PH also talked to a senior engineer on the 991 project, who confirmed that Porsche will use the Carrera's electric power steering set-up on the GT3.

We're pretty sure that will prove a controversial move for such a 'purist' machine, but we shall no doubt find out whether it works or not when the car hits the streets in 2013...

    Hard to see too much difference in black but it still looks cool.

    I'm lost how many variants are there now?

    Should have phrased this differently what I really meant was how many 991 vaiants are there going to be at any one time. Carrera 4S, GT2, GT3, GT3 RS...
