Due to the breadth of the Porsche 911 portfolio, it appears that the engineers in Zuffenhausen are always testing new or revised models. Although the GT3 was just released a few years ago, it appears that modifications are already being tried in northern Europe. The same holds true for the GT3 Touring, as our spies have also spotted a prototype testing without a rear wing.
Facelifted Porsche 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 Touring seen
Both retained unmodified front fascia from the current vehicles. It does not necessarily imply that the facelifted models will retain the same appearance. Porsche may not have installed new components on these prototypes. For instance, the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 Touring may have the new HD matrix LED headlights with a strong high beam that illuminates the road up to 600 meters ahead (nearly 2,000 feet).
For the time being, the German sports car manufacturer is just concealing modifications made to the rear bumper corners with camouflage. The license plate looks to be seated in a deeper recess, and our spies reported that the diffuser seemed to be altered. In classic Porsche form, the alterations will be so subtle that likely only enthusiasts will notice them immediately.
Our spies were unable to view the inside, although previous 911 (992.2) variants have been observed with an all-digital instrument cluster. The analog center-mounted tachometer will presumably be removed from the GT3 pair. Hopefully, traditionalists will continue to have the option of reinstalling the dial and needle. Given that Porsche offers alternatives for virtually everything, perhaps the conventional rev counter will survive.
If there will be modifications to the engine is anyone’s guess, but we wouldn’t necessarily bank on it. The 911 GT3 and GT3 Touring share a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine with 502 horsepower (374 kilowatts) and 346 pound-feet of torque (454 newton-meters). You may use a six-speed manual transmission or let the PDK handle all the work.
The revamped 911 lineup will also include a new GT2 RS, rumored to debut in 2026 with a hybrid powertrain producing over 700 horsepower. Porsche has stated that a totally electric 911 will not be released in this decade.
