Porsche GT3 Cup
One could be forgiven for contemplating Porsche’s future into the sports-car business, exactly what with all the development of vehicles including the Cayenne as well as the Panamera, followed closely by the unceremonious deviation of previous CEO Wendelin Wiedeking under the watchful eyes of Volkswagen and Ferdinand Piëch. Also to people who sign up to the idea the presence of Cayenne as well as the Panamera tend to be heresy, we’d want to direct your awareness of the 2013 911 GT3 Cup racer—proof that Porsche is as intent on sports-car racing as ever.
The GT3 Cup provides us with an excellent notion of exactly what the series-production type of the 911 GT3 will look like. It will make utilization of the clean lines with this 991-generation and it is relatively quickly differentiated from the 997-based forerunner. The competition car is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six that creates 460 hp at 7500 rpm. Power is sent towards the back tires through Porsche's own six-speed handbook transmission, that will be run by paddle shifters rather than the old-fashioned stick. Does this signify the roadgoing, series-production GT3 are certain to get a similar transmission? No. Our intelligence informs us that it'll get a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic alternatively; the 911 Carrera’s seven-speed handbook could be provided too, but no six-speed stick.
For the GT3 Cup, Porsche is rolling out brand-new 18-inch aluminum rims with a central-locking system, that are shod in Michelin battle plastic. You can find six-piston brakes up front and four-piston brake system inside back, with four sides utilizing steel disks in place of carbon ceramics. The chassis is modified, with Porsche saying that drivability within limitation ended up being a stronger focus associated with development.
