Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package

2018 Porsche 911 GT3-based 'Touring' leaks online

Now, Porsche going back and doing its fans a solid. Now, the killing blow arrives with the much-rumored Touring Package for the new GT3, removing the rear wing and introducing optional leather touches for the interior.

The 911 GT3 Touring will start at $144,650 in the US including a $1,050 delivery, processing, and handling fee. The naturally aspirated four-liter flat-six engine is taken from the 911 RSR and 911 GT3 Cup race cars.

Even with its more toned down exterior, the 911 GT3 Touring Package is still powered by the same 500 horsepower naturally-aspirated 4.0L six-cylinder as the standard 911 GT3.

According to Porsche, the GT3 with Touring Package can do 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 196 miles per hour.

Inside, the Touring Package is less bare bones than the 911R, which was devoid of a radio and air conditioning. Inside, the interior is swaddled in leather rather than Alcantara, lending a more classic appeal and comfortable personality.

Porsche has unveiled a cheaper but no less powerful alternative to the rare and now discontinued 911 R in the form of a new 911 GT3 model featuring a so-called Touring Package.

The 911 GT3 Touring package costs the same as the standard GT3 - 152,416 euros including Value-Added Tax.

Confirming previous reports of a purist's 911, the Touring Pack is also reportedly only available with a manual gearbox - a first for GT3-based models since the limited run 911 R of a year ago. The Touring Package will be available exclusively in combination with the six-speed manual transmission. This function is activated via the "Sport" button on the centre console, delivering dynamic shift processes from faster synchronisation of the gears.

Still, the essential character of the GT3 remains since it features no rear seat, active rear steering, brake-based torque vectoring and a mechanical locking rear differential.

The chassis of the 911 GT3 is a testament to Porsche's experience in motorsport. Depending on the speed, it steers either in the opposite or the same direction as the front wheels, thereby improving the vehicle's agility and stability. Porsche's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is still standard. This 53-acre complex features a driver development track with eight educational modules totaling 4.1 miles, a business center, and Restaurant 917. PCNA is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Porsche AG, which is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany.
