Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package deletes the rear wing

2018 Porsche 911 GT3 leaked

Just when you thought Porsche was obsessed about nothing other than its GT cars' fast laptimes or its SUVs' profit margins, it goes and launches a new, less extreme GT3 variant.

Porsche's latest release at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 is the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package.

The most significant distinction between the GT3 Touring and the regular vehicle is its lack of fixed rear wing. Other distinguishing features include the silver-coloured side window strips, sports exhaust system tailpipes and headlight washer system covers, as well as the Porsche logo at the rear.

The 911 GT3 Touring Package also receives the same rear bumper as the standard 911 GT3 with large air ducts to extract hot air from the engine bay.

A high-performance sports auto in every respectWith the exception of the rear, the body of the GT3 remains unchanged in the variant with Touring Package. In line with the character of a GT auto, leather is prevalent rather than Alcantara®, which is used in other GT3 models. The finishing touch to the interior is black brushed aluminum trim.

Inside, the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package features fine leather rather than Alcantara. It has the same 4.0-liter flat-6, making the same 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. Its top speed, however, is a paltry 196 miles per hour, down from 198 miles per hour, likely due to the change in spoiler. But, despite not having a big rear wing to create drag, the Touring can't match the standard manual GT3's top speed of 198mph.

Under the rear hatch sits a 4.0 litre naturally aspirated engine. The machine is the most powerful naturally aspirated direct-injection engine and has the greatest displacement that Porsche has ever developed for a six-cylinder flat engine on the road. This function is activated via the "Sport" button on the centre console, delivering dynamic shift processes from faster synchronisation of the gears.

Under the skin, the GT3 Touring receives a rear-wheel-steering system, a torque vectoring limited-slip differential, plus the same dampers and tweaked chassis as the GT3. In addition to the basic design, which is optimised for precision, the chassis also boasts superior handling characteristics, thanks predominantly to the active rear-axle steering. It steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction as the front wheels for added agility at lower speeds and in the same direction as the front wheels for greater longitudinal stability at higher speeds. Porsche's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is still standard. This app enables the driver to display, record, and analyze detailed driving data on their smartphone. (PCNA) is the exclusive US importer of Porsche 911, 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman sports cars, Macan and Cayenne SUVs, and Panamera sports sedans. PCNA employs over 300 people who provide parts, service, marketing, and training for 188 dealers.

That's down to the history of the name, Porsche suggests. PCNA is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Porsche AG, which is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany.
