According to the German based automaker, the brand new Porsche 911 GT America has been designed to compete in the USCR (United Sports Car Racing) GT Daytona class and the model has been recently unveiled, over-seas. The new Porsche 911 GT America is actually based on the GT3 Coup and it’s coming with tweaks like the unique rear wing, the carbon fiber underbody and much more.
“We are hopeful that our current American Le Mans Series GTC customers, along with our Rolex Grand-Am competitors and new teams, will want to take advantage of this early availability”, said Jens Walther, the president of Porsche Motorsport North America.
The new Porsche 911 GT America has been also fitted with the 380 mm slotted and internally vented steel rotors with four- and six-piston aluminum calipers, with a roof rescue hatch and a Cosworth digital dash. Power is being provided by a 470 HP (345 kW) 4.0 liter flat six-cylinder engine, mated to a six-speed sequential transmission. Prices for the Porsche 911 GT America start at 269,000 USD. Deliveries will begin in October.
