THE 911 GT3 with Touring Package will be unveiled at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA), which is taking place until September 24, in Frankfurt.

Instead of the fixed rear wing, when equipped with the optional Touring Package, the GT3 will have an adaptive rear spoiler similar to that of the 911 Carrera models. Beneath its understated exterior is pure motorsport-derived technology: The four-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine develops 500 horsepower and generates 339 lb.-ft. of torque.

The 911 GT3 with Touring Package sprints from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top track speed of 196 miles per hour. The Touring Package will be available exclusively in combination with the six-speed manual transmission.

The name “Touring Package” harkens back to a variant of the 911 Carrera RS from 1973. The very pure 911 design and classic interior features were key elements of this model. The new 911 GT3 when equipped with the Touring Package follows the same concept, and retains the two-seater arrangement of the 911 GT3.

Apart from certain Alcantara-covered interior fittings, almost all 911 GT3 options are also available in combination with the Touring Package. This includes all available exterior colours, wheel choices, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system, the front axle lift system, LED headlights, three seat options, and the Sport Chrono Package.
