The aggressive new 2020 Porsche 911 GT3 has been spotted testing, almost undisguised, at the Nürburgring.
Spy-shots of the highly-anticipated next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 reveals a vehicle testing with hardly any camouflage at the Nürburgring. Set to be launched in late 2020, this is the first model from the Porsche GT division to be running on the 992-generation of 911s.
The lack of any heavy camouflage allows us a decent look at Porsche's latest sports car. The nose carries a front-bumper with a large intake for the front-mounted radiators, in line with its motorsport-inspired forefathers. The bonnet too carries through the GT3 lineage, with two vents near the front and two ridges running up to the windscreen.
The back reveals a top-mounted rear wing sitting above a crafty, vented ducktail, although the lack of visible intakes to help the engine breathe are conspicuous. Below the boot lid sits a bumper housing the centrally mounted exhausts, while an aggressive diffuser rounds off the look.
As we already know, the GT3 will share the same wide body as the rest of the 911 family and will be used for both rear- and all-wheel-drive models.
Although many may have seen a few other details in an earlier promotional video released by Porsche, these pics show us the centre-lock wheel design better.
We can only speculate at this point about what will power the new Porsche 911 GT3, but it will most likely be a tuned version of its predecessors 4-litre naturally aspirated flat-six driving the rear wheels.
It is also unclear what transmission will be used from launch, with some suspecting both a six-speed manual and a dual-clutch auto, while others suggesting the manual will only make an appearance later.
As per the previous model range, we're expecting both a GT3 Touring and RS derivative to be launched in due course.
The 911 GT3 is an important model for Porsche, so we eagerly await more information and driving impressions of this vehicle. We're sure it will be worth the wait.
