Porsche is opening the 911 GT3 Cup, the next 911-based race car to make the transition from the 997 to the 991 platform and a car that’s quite a bit bargain-determined to own and operate than its precursor. After the GT3 R, it’s the ordinal automobile with our brand-new era of motors as per Porsche’s motorsports chief Frank-Steffen Walliser.
In this case, “brand-new era” does not convey force-fed by a turbocharger. The 911 GT3 Cup is moved by a free-breathing, direct-injected 4.0-liter flat-six-cylinder engine to produce 485 horsepower, up from the precursor’s 460. Even more all-important, it offers far more torque at low revs, and this makes it a lot faster than before. We’ve never acted such a huge jump expressed Walliser.
He also oversaw to get running costs significantly. While the precursor needed a engine tuneup every 40 hrs and a transmission work every 30 hrs, now the motor can go 80 to 100 hrs, and the transmission needs attention only every 60 hrs. Sequential racing transmission supported by gearbox.
With 18 inch wheel, the whole car weighs a specified 2646 pounds. No artificial driving assists, but it is “ABS prepared,” expressed Walliser, which means that an anti-lock-braking system, where demanded, can use an existing device structure. The GT3 Cup is met with xenon HID lights, since LED governed units would be dense. The 911 GT3 Cup will be sprinting from 2017 onward, it is determined at 189,900 euros, or $213,000 at ongoing exchange rates, plus taxes.
For masses, the GT3 Cup will flow down to successions production cars.
