Video: Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Racecar Teaser


A few weeks ago we brought you the first teaser image of the upcoming 911 GT3 Cup car. Today Porsche has released the first teaser video for the upcoming racecar, which is set to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2013 and the World Endurance Championship.

The model will be based on the new generation Porsche 911, but it is believed to carry much of its design elements and technology from the current generation. Under the hood you will find the same 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine as found in the standard GT3, but with some extra ponies added in.

On the outside, the model will receive ultra-wide fenders, an aerodynamic package specially designed for racing and, of course, extra air intakes for better engine cooling. Just like with any other racecar, the GT3 Cup car will be equipped with a high-flow exhaust system, adjustable blade-type anti-roll bars, 18-inch wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes.

i’d be satisfied with the GT3. don’t need the cup version. it has the boot in place. and 2 seats are enough for me and my girlfriend. all other people can admire the rear end of my car!

it is the race version of a street car. it seems logic for it to be good at racing and not more. for anything else you have the street version of the car!

the 911 is great in any aspect. the 911 GT3 Cup is great for races! but otherwise, quite useless.

i am glad you added "justified" in there. because you do get a 100.000$ worth of car!

that is because it costs 100.000$!!! a high price (though justified) will keep lots of people away no matter what!

john, you are right about that. but the 911 is more exclusive!

for those attributes i would chose either a S5 or a M6. cheaper, quite as fast, but better for all day use.

911’s are great cars in general. fast, powerful, but they still have a boot and 4 seats. great!

although clarkson says this car is wrong, ugly and didn’t evolve since it’s first design, i say it is a great car!

the 911 has great handling and the 911 GT3 Cup is even better. so i think it will do great!
