The interior of the new generation Weissach circuit weapon leaks, revealing a red line at 9000 rpm and a swan neck wing.
The interior of the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 has leaked online, ahead of its expected unveiling in the coming months.
Two images posted on the Spanish forum Carspias shows the dashboard of the new generation GT3, which looks largely identical to that of the smaller 911 Carrera and Turbo models.
However, take a closer look and you’ll notice a number of GT3-specific details: GT3 branding on the instrument cluster displays, a ‘Race-Tex’ suede-covered steering wheel (a $ 350 option on Turbo S models, but probably standard on the track-focused GT3) and a graphic of the car’s side profile.
Although blurry in these leaked images, the graphics appear to show the large “gooseneck” rear wing sported by the GT3 prototypes spotted during testing on the Nurburgring in recent months.

The presence of a yellow accent tachometer with a red line of 9000 rpm, plus a trio of pedals and a manual gearshift lever between the seats, seem to confirm what many already expected: powering the new GT3 will be a high number. of turns six dishes sucked, possibly an upgraded version of the 718 Spyder and 4.0-liter ‘9A2 Evo’ unit of the Cayman GT4, paired with a six-speed manual adapter.
A dual-clutch automatic transmission should also be available for buyers.
Given the new generation 911 GT3 991.2 developed 368 kW / 460 Nm from its 4.0-liter flat-six, we’d expect outputs closer to 390kW and 500Nm for the new model, complemented by a series of chassis and suspension upgrades to improve the already rapid performance of minor 911 vehicles on the track.

The spy shots also reveal a full styling and track-focused aerodynamic package to match the blistering performance of the GT3, including the aforementioned ‘gooseneck’ spoiler, more aggressive bumpers, a functional rear diffuser, dual tailpipes central and hood vents to improve airflow.
The “gooseneck” rear spoiler design helps remove turbulence under the wing – where much of the downforce is produced – and creates cleaner airflow from the rear of the vehicle, which also reduces drag .
The Porsche 911 GT3 of 2021 should do his official debut in early 2021 – with a recent auction listing hinting at a January presentation – with a view to a possible launch in Australia by the end of next year.
