Porsche 911 GT3 Touring 2021: Touch of discretion


The more discreet GT3 has just seen the light, saying goodbye to the large fixed rear wing of the standard GT3. Lovers of sports driving in general and the Porsche 911, in particular, will be in luck with the arrival of the most special version of the iconic German sports car, that is, the GT3, and that is its naturally aspirated six-cylinder in-line engine, as well as its manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive are the perfect combination. Now, anyone who wants to enjoy it, but with a classic and more discreet touch will be able to do so thanks to the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring that has just seen the light of day.

The most discreet GT3

Obviously, the best way to distinguish this version is by the absence of the fixed rear wing that so characterizes the 911 GT3, replaced this time by another that unfolds automatically. This is not the only novelty detail on the exterior as the Touring sports silver-colored window frame moldings made of high-gloss anodized aluminum. Likewise, the front is painted entirely in body color, while the sports exhaust outlets use a silver tone. Porsche offers glossy satin black as an option as well as darkened headlamps.

A distinguishing feature of this version is the “GT3 Touring” emblem located on the rear hood grille. With regard to the interior, Porsche wanted to give this model a special touch and for this reason, we find a black leather upholstery that is accompanied by raised surfaces for both the dashboard and the upper part of the door panels. The black color also makes an appearance on the roof and on partially leather-upholstered seats that display a central part in black fabric, as well as black stitching and a headrest with the brand's crest in relief. The door sills, dashboard trim, and center console trim are made of brushed black aluminum.

The German brand also makes practically the same optional equipment as the 911 GT3 available to all customers who opt for this version. That is, LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System and with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, driving assistants, different seats, exterior, and wheel colors, various audio equipment, PCCB ceramic brakes, the Chrono pack, and an interesting lift system. of the front axle.

The same six-cylinder boxer engine of the standard GT3 is still present under the hood, that is, a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated mechanics that develops 510 horsepower and a maximum torque of 470 Nm, associated with a six-speed manual gearbox sends all the energy to the rear axle. However, the main novelty is a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission, at no additional cost, with which the GT3 Touring reaches 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds.

Another novel aspect is the view of the track instrumentation so that the driver with just a push of a button can see the essential information on the instrument panel, whether it is tire and oil pressure, oil and tire temperature. coolant, as well as the fuel level. To do this, the GT3 Touring has a quick access button on the steering wheel designed to facilitate switching between the different driving modes (Normal, Sport, and Track).
