Limited-run Porsche 911 GT3 is firm’s hottest track car yet

The rest of the bodywork is entirely bespoke, with a stretched wheelbase and widened wheel arches, both of which sit on lowered springs and new 18in BBS alloys. 

The body itself is entirely made out of carbon fibre and is punctuated by aero-optimised fins and larger air intakes on the front wheel arches in the name of the track work for which it is intended. The exterior mirrors have also been ditched in lieu of electronic screens fed by a trio of cameras mounted on the body.

Towards the rear, it shares design elements with Porsche’s racers of the past. For example, the bumper-width rear wing takes influence from the seven-time Daytona-winning Brumos Porsche 935/77, and its vertical spoiler supports are said to be reminiscent of the Porsche 962 Le Mans racer. To reduce weight, it does without grille covers and certain panels, leaving components such as the exhaust open to the elements.

More weight-saving measures have been made inside, with the removal of the front and rear passenger seats and air conditioning system. 

It also gets a plaque denoting which model number the customer has chosen, two monitors to replace the door mirrors, colour-adjustable ambient lighting, and an FIA-spec roll cage.

It will be launched with a choice of seven colours, including Star Ruby, Signal Orange, and Agate Grey Metallic [brand new for the 911 range].
