Porsche’s are very well respected in the world of motorsport and if you’re a P-Car enthusiast but can’t race around in the big leagues with the top dogs, Porsche always offers high-strung track editions of their cars—most particularly the 911—so that anyone who has the wallet can purchase these souped up and squashed Volkswagen Beetles and take it to any motorsports event that they can. And to cater to a wider range of motorsport, Porsche has just unveiled their updated version of the competition-spec 911 GT3 Cup just before the all-new version comes out.
The new 911 GT3 Cup comes with a 100-litre FT3 safety fuel tank that’s filled through the front compartment. But that’s not all. The engine remains the same with the same 450hp output and 8,500RPM redline. A new racing exhaust system was too added to help keep emissions low.
The 911 GT3 Cup also comes with an option of new wheels, depending on the racing conditions. Additionally, the suspension is fully adjustable so that drivers can adapt to different racetracks. Porsche’s epic PCCB or Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes are also now available.
Prices for the new 911 GT3 Cup start at €161,750 or $232,000 at today’s exchange rates.
