Welcome to the 911 GT3 Touring Package, hold on Euan it looks exactly the same as the current GT3? Yes it does with the spoiler deleted, well it’s exactly like a 911 R? Yes! actually it is, as it comes with no spoiler, a 6 speed manual gearbox and rear wheel drive, but unlike the 911 R this isn’t limited and is a bit heavier.
It even has the same 4.0litre flat 6 as the R and the same 500bhp but it reaches 62mph 0.2 seconds slower at 3.9, but if your one of the lucky owners of a 911 R then i would be pretty worried and angry at porsche because why would anyone fork out what is now around half a million pounds when you can get this for £150,000! the value of the 911R may take some damaging.
The touring package also comes with a slightly stiffer chassis setup for more high speed cornering stability and comes with a new improved rear wheel steering making this GT3 an absolute blast around a track, it’s basically a purists dream! and everyone knows that porsche have the best manual gearboxes in the business! I just feel sorry for all those 911 R owners.
