New hardcore 911 variant will appear next year after 992-gen 911 makes debut at Los Angeles motor show
A new Porsche 911 is just around the corner and is likely to be revealed at the Los Angeles motor show in November, and now our spy photogrraphers have caught what is likely the GT3 variant of the new 992 generation 911 on camera for the very first time.
The car spied here wears the same full-width LED taillight we’ve spotted previously on almost completely undisguised next-generation 911 mules, though with some quite obvious differences.
Chief among which is the huge wing equipped on the rear of this 911 mule, openly flaunting this particular model’s track intent. It’s joined by a pair of huge scoops underneath the rear window too, both ramming air towards the car’s rear-mounted engine. Underneath it all sits a huge pair of central exit tailpipes.
There’s little to pick out elsewhere, but at the front, the bonnet features new ventilation, while the wheelarches look flared compared to the regular 911 mules we’ve already seen plenty of, suggesting a wider track is equipped under this development car for the next 911 GT3.
As for what’s likely to power the car, it could continue to make use of a naturally aspirated flat-six, using a modified version of the 4.0-litre, 493bhp unit equipped in the current GT3.
We got the chance to ride in the passenger seat of a 992 Porsche 911 prototype, read our review about it here…
