“Is this a wingless Porsche 911 GT3? Technically you’re correct, but there’s more to the GT3 Touring than meets the eye. For instance, did you know the ‘Touring’ name was first used on the 2.7 Carrera RS from 1973? This is a less extreme makeover, but one that definitely tries to channel the analog 911s of a bygone era with all the latest trickery from Zuffenhausen at a stratospheric redline of 9,000 rpm”.
Losing the rear wing of the standard GT3 gives back the 911’s classic swept profile, while only being quickly recognized — met with the nod of respect — as the Touring model by those with a keen eye for Porsches.
Giving the GT3 Touring a thorough thrashing, it will keep finding ways to push harder than expected through fast sweepers, thanks to the trick rear-wheel steering and mechanical differential. It is sublime. With a redline of 9,000 RPMs, it is easy to leave Porsche’s super crisp and short throw shifter in 3rd gear, and use that huge, and hugely flexible, powerband. The GT3’s manual transmission is said to be developed and equipped extremely similar to the famous 911 R gearbox, which is a good thing.
The GT3 is Porsche’s more track-focused version of its 911 model, that you can also drive around without breaking your back. What makes the Touring package option cool is that it loses the big rear wing spoiler, gets a splash more leather on the dash, door panels, and steering wheel, has a unique mesh engine cover grill, and only comes with a 6-speed manual transmission with a dual-mass flywheel. It’s the setup for those who love moving quickly without demanding a giant wing on the back so that everyone knows you’re the Race Car Wanker. It’s the setup that doesn’t attract every single cop within a 50-mile radius.
Combining a naturally-aspirated engine with a manual transmission is a dying breed in the Porsche world, and indulging the enthusiast with this option is heaven-sent. The model also arrived as part of the 991.2 update, and almost feels like a big middle finger to all the speculative 911 R investors who were trying to make a buck off of the marketplace created by Porsche offering a wickedly perfect 6-speed manual transmission hooked up to their brilliant 4.0-liter 500 horsepower flat-6, with only 991 “R” units produced.
Powering the GT3 is Porsche’s 4.0 liter flat-six, kicking out 500 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque, while revving to an astounding redline of 9,000 RPM. All those revs and horsepower figures are put to the pavement via a 6-speed manual transmission with a side of Porsche’s torque vectoring system coupled to a mechanical limited slip rear differential. As far as the efficiency of the engine – and its power output – is concerned, direct fuel injection (DFI) makes a decisive contribution. It does so with millisecond precision and a pressure of up to 200 bar. For optimum mixture formation and combustion in the combustion chamber. And, relative to the engine’s high power output, it helps to achieve favorable fuel consumption and comparatively low CO2 emissions.
For a further improvement to driving dynamics, the new 911 GT3 benefits from a new chassis setup. The results: excellent pitch, roll and directional stability and extraordinary steering precision. Long-distance comfort wasn’t ignored either. Toe angle, camber and anti-roll bars can also be adjusted individually for racetrack use.
Acceleration figures are 3.8 seconds from 0-60, 7.6 seconds from 0-100, and 11.6 to scream through the quarter mile. Sure those times are all just slightly slower than the PDK equivalent GT3, but this is a purist’s car. A couple tenths mean nothing to the driver who wants to row their own gears, and knows they’re not trying to set the lap record at Laguna Seca. The Porsche GT3 Touring weighs in at a scant 3,116 pounds, but that figure is actually slightly lighter due to the carbon seats and PCCBs, giving it a respectable 6.3 pounds per horsepower.
