Spy Shots: Porsche 911 GT3 gets closer to its official reveal
The new generation Porsche 911 GT3 is set to be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but we’ll be able to see plenty of pictures ahead of its debut thanks to our spy photographers. Our guys snagged up a few more images of the prototypes testing, this time with a clearer look at the future sports car.
The new 911 GT3 will feature the same exterior updates as all of the other models in the 911 line-up, but Porsche’s main focus will be to reduce the car’s overall weight. Rumors say that the car will be about 180-200 lbs lighter than the current model.
Under the hood, Porsche will be working with a normally aspirated 3.8-liter flat six engine with an output of 450 HP, a 15 HP increase over the current model. With the extra 15 HP and the decrease in weight, the upcoming 911 GT3 will get closer to a top speed of 200 mph. The model will also only be offered with a PDK seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic, no manual for this baby.
Sales for the new Porsche 911 GT3 will begin in late 2013.
