Porsche Of The Day: 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R

Based on the 911 GT3 RS production sports car, Porsche has designed a customer sport race car for GT3 series around the world: the 911 GT3 R. In developing the more than 368 kW (500 hp) racing nine-eleven, special attention was paid to lightweight design, better aerodynamic efficiency, reducing consumption, improved handling and optimised safety. The 911 GT3 R features the distinctive double-bubble roof, and the wheelbase which had been lengthened compared to the prior generation.

Powering the new 911 GT3 R is a cutting-edge four-litre flat-six unit which is largely identical to the high-performance production engine of the road-legal 911 GT3 RS. The engine is factory rated at 550 horsepower without restrictors. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a sequential six-speed constant-mesh transaxle with a mechanical limited-slip differential.

This 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R participated in three SRO World Challenge Series races and is equipped with carbon-fiber composite body panels covering a race-prepared cabin. It also comes with additional features such as a mechanical limited-slip differential, a rear wing, 18-inch BBS center-lock wheels, a roof escape hatch, AP Racing brakes, an air jack system, an adjustable pedal box, a Racetech seat, an in-car camera system, an FT3 safety fuel cell, air conditioning, and a motorsport steering wheel.
