Porsche just released their new 911 GT3 for 2022, but an upgraded version was seen being tested. The changes that were noticed were quite minor and likely connected to the plan of updating the full 992-generation range. Different models from this generation, including the 911 Carrera and 911 Turbo, have already been spotted – some of these even include hybrid versions! We predict that the revised range (known as the 992.2 generation) should come in late 2021 or early 2022 as 2024 models.
The main changes the Porsche GT3 is getting are a brand-new digital instrument cluster, which looks similar to the one in their Taycan car, and a revised back end. The rear of the car is covered with camouflage material that also seems to be hiding something near the muffler tips.
Porsche hasn’t said what improvements they plan to make mechanically, but it often includes an increase in strength. The current GT3 has a 4.0-liter engine that produces 502 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque. It is powered either by a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. Before the updated GT3 comes out, Porsche will first release the 911 GT3 RS model which will be even more powerful than normal cars – like something you would usually find on the race track!
The Porsche 911 GT3 is similar to the company’s race car, called the GT3 Cup. The new GT3 RS looks even more awesome than that and it is inspired by the super-fast GT3 R racer. And recently, Porsche has been testing a brand new model of the track favorite – this time based on the 992-generation of its famous sports car! This likely means that what they learn from creating the new race car will be reflected in the future versions of their street-legal twin, the GT3 RS.
