Premiere at the 2016 Paris Motor Show
In 2017, the 911 GT3 Cup 4.0 is used in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, which is held alongside the F1 races, and in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. From 2018 it will be available for other Porsche Cup series. In total, there are around 20 race series in the world exclusively for the Porsche GT3 Cup cars. Porsche racing cars are sold directly by Porsche Motorsport in Weissach.
For the 2018 season, 339 new GT3 Cup 4.0 cars were ordered. Never before have so many racing vehicles of one type been manufactured for one season - the 911 GT3 Cup remains the world’s top selling race car.
After winning the 2017 Porsche Carrera Cup France and taking 2018 Le Mans 24h class victory (youngest ever at 18), Julien Andlauer won the 2019 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. Before the last race, Andlauer was leading the championship with 15.5 points in front of his team mate Michael Ammermüller. In the race Andlauer made a driving mistake and finished 9th, but managed to win the championship with just 2.5 points ahead of Ammermüller.
Because of the coronavirus, the 2020 Porsche Carrera Cup Germany starts in September.
