Porsche Announced Its Track-Focused 911 GT3 Touring Package for Frankfurt

At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche announced to reveal its fabulous wingless 911 GT3, equipped with a stiff PASM suspension, a manual six-gear transmission and a naturally aspirated engine. The GT3 Touring Package is claimed to be the last such a naturally aspirated model Porsche says to produce. Moreover, the model with Touring Package will have the same pricing tag as the standard 911, kicking at $143,000. Featuring sporty aerodynamics, the Touring Package is considered to be a high-performance car with exceptional handling characteristics.

The track-focused vehicle lacks the huge rear wing; instead of it, a pure sports car will feature a compact, retractable, adaptive rear spoiler with a highly aerodynamic ‘Gurney flap’ edge’, finished in the body paint. The uniquely designed grille features the branded ‘GT3 touring’ logo. Among other noteworthy tidbits there are side window surrounds, ken-speckled sporty exhaust system tailpipes, the remarkable logo at the back and the dark-tinted rear-and-front lights. Mechanics remains still unchanged; it means the same 4.0L flat-six engine pumping out 339 lb-ft of torque and 500 horsepower and churning out 0-60mph in just a racing 3.8 seconds.
