Porsche has recently revealed the 911 GT3 Cup, which is essentially a track-ready Porsche based on the 911 GT3 RS. Powered by the same 450HP 3.8 litre 6-cylinder motivator used in the GT3 RS, the Cup version is treated to a wider body (by 44 mm) and flared wheel arches at the rear, wider wheel arches at the front as well as a fully controlled catalytic converter. It also comes with an all-new exhaust system and better stopping power thanks to Porsche’s Ceramic Composite Brakes system, which is actually 20 kilograms lighter than the composite cast brake discs featured on the Carrera Cup cars.
The 1,200 kg sports car also features improved downforce with a lower front spoiler lip and wider rear wing that is mounted higher as well. Sitting on light-alloy wheels, measuring 9.5 J x 18 and wrapped with 4/64-18 Michelin racing tires (rear wheels are wider by an inch), the GT3 Cup also comes with additional Unibal joints that are featured on the track control arms, adjustable sword-shaped anti-roll bars front and rear (adjustable to seven different positions on both sides), repositioned controls for the Info Display, height adjustment for the steering wheel and an additional vent in the upper part of the front lid to help provide the driver with an even better supply of fresh air.
Potential buyers can expected deliveries by October and you would have to part with 149,850 Euros. The Porsche 911 GT3 is exclusively available in Carrera White and is expected to compete in the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup, Porsche Carrera Cup and the GT3 Cup Challenge.
