The excitement from a naturally-aspirated Porsche is unlike any other. In fact, the 991-generation 911 GT3, in manual of course, delivered a driving experience that was beyond our expectations. It left us wondering whether or not it’s the greatest Porsche ever made. Well, that’s until we heard about the possibility of the 992-generation GT3.
From being spotted on the Nurburgring to a sneak peek in Porsche’s 2020 Super Bowl advertisement; with more details about the GT3’s design. From what we see, it features dual hood vents on the hood, center-lock wheels that were similar to ones in the Super Bowl ad, a rear diffuser that looks like it’s directly from factory, as well as dual center-exit exhaust tips.
In addition, there’s a fixed rear wing, similar to previous GT3s, that is more than likely not the production GT3’s wing. If anything, we are hoping that a ducktail spoiler will be installed instead.
Beyond the exterior looks, we have information about what’s under the hood, rear-hood that is. The 992-generation will be powered by Porsche’s high-revving, naturally-aspirated 4.0L flat-six engine. From its predecessor, the 991 GT3 produced 500 hp while the GT3 RS produced 520 hp. Yes, it’s only 20 more horses, but even that small bump in power means noticeable performance. With that said, we expect the 992 GT3 to include slightly more horsepower.
Before I forget, the 992 will be available in a six-speed manual and a PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Now, is the waiting game as we expect the 992-generation GT3 to debut later this year. While the race-ready GT3 RS variant to follow closely behind. Pricing should be near the 991.2 GT3 of $144,650 (base model).
