The 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car, making its debut in the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship, is the latest edition of the best-selling racing car of all time, having been built in a production series of more than 1,400 units since 1998.
It has the same450 hp flat six 3.8-litre engine but it’s much lighter and edgier than the RS.
As a consequence of being based on the 911 GT3 RS, this is the first Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car to feature the 44-millimetre (1.73″) wider body at the rear, which provides increased space for even larger wheels and slick tyres. Wider front wheel arches also clearly show that the front wheels/tyres are likewise bigger which, combined with other evolutionary changes, has enabled the dynamic performance of the latest car to reach new heights.
Additionally, the cabin is now a more comfortable place for the driver, with a new vent in the upper part of the front lid being installed to provide a better supply of fresh air.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup costs £94,600 plus VAT and deliveries to customers will begin in early 2011.
