Porsche introduced today the new 2013 911 GT3 R based on the 997 model generation. Featuring widened fender flares on the front and rear, the new 911 GT3 R looks brawnier than its predecessor. The car comes with a wider track and adapted wheels in order to provide additional improvement in traction.
For the 2013MY, the 911 GT3 R comes with upgraded aerodynamics such as fine-tuned front bumper panels, front and rear fenders, sill covers, rear panel and underbody with rear diffuser.
Furthermore, the rear wing was enlarged to the width of the vehicle and repositioned to work optimally with the redesigned body.
The suspension was also modified and the track of both the front and rear axle grew by 50 millimetres. As a result, the width of the front rims is now twelve instead of 10.9 inches, while the wheelbase of the latest 911 GT3 R grew by ten millimetres. Just like the outgoing version, the new 911 GT3 R comes with the same four-litre, six-cylinder flat engine capable to deliver 368 kW (500 hp).
The engine is bolted to the Porsche six-speed sequential dog-type gearbox with pneumatic shift system operated via shift paddles on the steering wheel. An array of electronic driver assistance systems adopted from the predecessor helps turn fast and safe laps.
The E-gas features a throttle-blip function. Customer teams can also convert their older model years of the 911 GT3 R to the 2013-spec. The kit is available from Porsche Motor-sport at the price of 45,500 Euros plus country-specific value added tax.
