The new Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring package
A high-performance athlete that does not show off its talent, and loves understatement: that is the new Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package. The seventh edition of the powerful 375 kW (510 PS) GT car can now be ordered with the equipment package that was extremely popular for its predecessor. This purist 911 GT3 with a weight of just 1,418 kilograms is delivered with a 6-speed GT sports gearbox as standard. For the first time, the Touring package can also be combined with the 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission at no extra cost.
The most conspicuous difference on the exterior is the omission of the fixed rear wing of the 911 GT3. The necessary downforce at high speeds and even more understatement are guaranteed by an automatically extending rear spoiler. Silver-coloured trim strips made of high-gloss anodised aluminium on the side windows are another distinguishing feature that underlines the newcomer’s discreet appearance. The front end is painted completely in the exterior colour. The interior with extended leather items in Black is particularly elegant and is available exclusively for the GT3 with Touring Package. The front of the dashboard and the upper side sections of the door trim panels have special surface embossing.
The name “Touring Package” goes back to an equipment variant of the 911 Carrera RS from the model year 1973. Already then, the focus was on purist 911 design and elements of a classic interior. Porsche revived the idea again in 2017, and for the first time again offered a Touring package for the previous generation of the 911 GT3, the Type 991. Since then, this variant has appealed above all to lovers of top-class sports cars with a pronounced passion for understatement and classic driving pleasure.
The 911 GT3 with Touring package offers the atmosphere of a classic sports car in the interior. The steering wheel rim, gear/selector lever, the cover of the centre console, armrests in the door panels and the door handles are covered in black leather. The partial leather interior features black stitching. The seat centre panels are covered with black fabric, and the roofline is also black. The head restraints bear embossed Porsche Crests. The door entry guards and trim elements on the dashboard and centre console are made of brushed black aluminium.
Its racing genes are expressed in practically all the details of the new 911 GT3. The cockpit is equipped with a tracking screen for the first time: at the push of a button, the digital displays on the left and right of the central rev counter are reduced to the essential information on tyre and oil pressure, oil and coolant temperature and fuel tank fill level. The 911 GT3 has an easily accessible Mode switch on the steering wheel. This facilitates fast switching between Normal settings and the customisable Sport and Track modes.
