Porsche has revealed its seventh-gen 911 GT3 with Touring Package following the standard GT3’s reveal earlier this year. Getting to the numbers first, the 911 GT3 with Touring Package houses a 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine that pumps out 375 kW and 470 Nm of torque.
The power is channeled to the rear axle via a standard 6-speed manual transmission – a 7-speed ‘PDK’ dual-clutch automatic can be specified optionally at no extra cost.
The Stuttgart-based marque does not make mention of the 0-100 km/h sprint time but we conservatively speculate it could do the sprint in the low three-second region, while the top speed could also be capped at just over 300 km/h.
On the outside, the Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package ditches the standard GT3’s fixed rear wing for an automatically extending rear spoiler. It is further distinguished by silver-coloured trim strips that are made of high-gloss anodised aluminium on the side windows.
The front is entirely painted in the exterior colour while the front light modules boast a dark-tinted finish. The rear lid grille with the ‘GT3 Touring’ insignia in unique design is placed over the engine.
The trim strips of the side windows and the tailpipes of the sports exhaust system are silver-coloured, while these elements are finished in satin-gloss Black on the optional Touring Package.
Inside, the steering wheel rim, gear/selector lever, 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. Other features include seat centre panels and roof-line that are covered with black fabric.
The head restraints bear embossed Porsche Crests while the door entry guards and trim elements on the dashboard and centre console are made of brushed black aluminium. For the first time, there is a track screen.
Offered as optional equipment for the 911 GT3 in combination with the Touring Package are all exterior and wheel colours, LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System and Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, various assistance systems, PCCB ceramic braking system, the lift system on the front axle, all seat variants, the Chrono Package and the audio systems.
Tipping the scales at 1,418 kg for the manual and 1,435 for the PDK variant, the GT3 with Touring Package’s weight is on par with its predecessor, thanks to the carbon fibre-reinforced bonnet, lightweight glass windows, forged-alloy wheels and lightweight sports exhaust system.
