2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Revealed

Sun, 09 Dec 2012

Porsche has revealed the latest version of the 911 GT3 Cup – the first track car from Porsche based on the 991 911 – in Weissach.

Porsche has built the new 911 GT3 Cup for its one-make racing series – the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup – and it comes with plenty of promise for more track success.

The GT3 Cup gets a 3.8 litre flat six which delivers 460 horses to the back wheels through a six-speed dog-type ‘box operated by paddles on the steering wheel.

Bigger Michelin slicks promise more grip and upgraded ventilated discs with six-piston calipers (four piston at the back) provide enough stopping power to reign the GT3 Cup in properly.

Porsche has pulled out the stops on driver safety with a new safety cage and a new seat which wraps round the driver’s head and shoulders and, even an escape hatch in the roof in case the worst happens.

Porsche driver Timo Bernhard said of the 2013 911 GT3 Cup:

The new 911 GT3 Cup is much easier to drive at the limit. The car is excellently balanced. The new axle geometry is enormously positive for the handling. Apart from that, the new Cup 911 is great fun to drive.

If you want to go play on track with the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup you’ll need a spare €181,200.
