2017 Frankfurt Motor Show: Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package unveiled
German performance carmaker Porsche has unveiled the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package ahead of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package sure is a looker as its overall design harkens back to more traditional 911 models of the past. The car will debut officially at the International Motor Show in Germany. The GT3 Touring Package will be priced at $ 1,45,000 ( Rs 92.84 lakh approximately) on launch. The Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package caters to the demand for a Porsche 911 GT3 without a rear wing and will find buyers among purists as it is one of the last few models that house a traditional Porsche naturally-aspirated engine. Powered by a 4.0-litre flat six-cylinder engine, the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package produces 500PS / 459.6Nm, revving all the way to 9,000rpm, capable of a 315kmph top speed. Porsche fans can rejoice in the fact that the car will not a limited-production run, unlike its predecessor the Porsche 911 R, of which only 991 units were made.
Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package loses the rear wing for a more purist-friendly look
The flat-six is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with a mechanical locking differential The front on the Touring Package is akin to its 911 GT3 sibling, but rear has a more 911 Carrera-style understated look, with a unique grille insert of the GT3 Touring Package. The 911 GT3 Touring Package loses its rear wing and gets an automatically deploying spoiler which is tucked away when not in use. A small Gurney Flap at the lip of the spoiler completes the rear. The 2016 Porsche 911 R was a super rare, super expensive car to own, which is not the case with the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package as it will be made on an open-ended production run with no cap on the volume.
