Porsche 911 GT3 Touring – The Ultimate Sleeper Porsche

This is a rare case of all go and no show, and we love it

LISTEN 03:41

The Porsche 911 GT3 looks just as brutal as it drives, but maybe it looks a little too brutal to you. If you’re not a fan of the GT3’s massive rear spoiler but want all of the other GT3 goodness, then the 911 GT3 Touring is exactly what the doctor ordered. This is technically a second-gen 911 GT3 Touring, as the first GT3 Touring was offered as part of the 991.2-gen lineup. And, just like its predecessor, this GT3 touring comes with all the power and tech, but in a more subdued, humble package.

The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is one of the fastest 911’s the company has ever made, and one could argue that it’s also the most aggressive. If you see a GT3 on the street, there’s no mistaking it for anything else. Well, that was true until now, as Porsche has brought back the GT3 Touring for the 992-gen 911. At a glance, it’s pretty obvious what has changed – that big spoiler is gone, with an automatically extending rear spoiler taking its place. Without the rear wing, the GT3 looks a little more normal, but so, so sleek at the same time. The front end also benefits from a new grille mesh while the window trim and exhaust outlets are finished in a standard silver trim. You can opt for Satin black, however, if the silver look doesn’t vibe with your personality.

Outside of these few changes, this is a GT3 through and through. You’ll have the same long list of exterior paint and interior finish options to choose from at the time of ordering, and you’ll ride on the same staggered 20- and 21-inch wheels. On the inside, you will find standard extended leather upholstery (it is a touring model, after all) with black leather on the upper dash. You’ll be able to pick from a few different color options for the lower portion of the dash, so you can customize the GT3 Touring a bit more to your liking.

Despite the lack of the rear wing, power is still derived from the same 4.0-liter flat-six that’s good for 502 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.

Porsche hasn’t said how deletion of the rear wing affects on-road performance, but with the lack of extra resistance from the rear spoiler you might be able to get to 60 mph a little faster than the normal GT3’s 3.2-second sprint. Top speed of the normal GT3 is also 197 mph, and we suspect the Touring model will offer the same.

Porsche hasn’t given performance specs, but expect the same 3.2-second sprint to 60 mph

Engine 4.0-litre six-cylinder boxer
Horsepower 502 HP
Torque 346 LB-FT
Transmission seven-speed PDK
0 to 60 mph 3.2 seconds
Top Speed 197 mph

This time around, the six-speed manual transmission is still the standard offering, but unlike the 991.2-gen GT3 touring, you can also opt for Porsche’s PDK gearbox. On that note, if you live in California, you’re actually stuck with the PDK, as California noise regulations prohibit the 911 GT3 Touring with the manual transmission.

The biggest difference is the lack of a rear spoiler, which has been replaced with a smaller automatic spoiler.

Pricing for the GT3 Touring is set at $161,000 plus $1,350 in delivery and processing fees. Apparently, ditching the wing will save you $100, as the normal 911 GT3 will set you back $161,100. Be sure to make the right choice at the dealership, though, as adding the normal GT3 wing after that fact will be expensive if not impossible.
