The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the most popular race car in the world with 3,031 sold since the start of this millenium. It comes with a completely new engine: 4.0 direct injection six cylinder naturally aspirated engine producing 485hp. The new GT3 Cup weighs 1,200kg.
It is fully homologated for the GT3 class and it is built on the same production line as the Porsche 911 road cars. The new Porsche 991.2 GT3 Cup cost 189,900 excl tax. First teams can take delivery of their GT3 Cup prior to the start of the 2017 Season in March.
The new GT3 Cup has an even more aggressive look including a new front and rear inspired by the 911 facelift. The eye catching rear wing is carried over from its predecessor. The new engine and aerodynamic optimizations should make the new cup car 2 seconds per lap faster on the average race track.
