The first road-oriented 911 GT3 Touring Edition was introduced in 2018. Now, nearly three years later, Porsche has revealed the 922 GT3 generation of the 911 with the Worldwide Touring Package and it will also be launched in India.Here’s everything about the upcoming 911 GT3 Touring.
Porsche is known for making great sports cars, while the iconic 911 series is the most popular car lineup around the world. The automaker makes several versions of the 911 and this year Porsche is on a spree.
The 992 generation 911 GT3 Touring was introduced last week as a different road-oriented version of the crushing 911 GT3. To make the Touring version, Porsche removed the curved-head rear spoiler and installed an adaptive spoiler in its place. Aside from the spoiler, there’s aluminum side window trim and bumpers painted in body color. Other than that, the GT3 Touring is still identical to the 911 GT3.
Inside, the cabin of the 911 GT3 Touring has more leather and is therefore luxurious: the steering wheel, central armrest, gear lever and door armrests are now upholstered in dark leather. But the rest of everything is the same as the standard 911 GT3.
Although the 911 GT3 Touring is a sports car for the road, it’s still a full-fledged performance car, thanks to the jewel in the crown. This GT3 Touring has the same 3,996 cc flat-packed petrol mill that makes 503 horsepower and 470 Nm of torque. Unlike the 911.2-generation GT3 Touring, which was only available with a manual gearbox, the 922 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring can be selected for a sporty six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed PDK automatic transmission.
Interestingly, the acceleration numbers on this tour are indistinguishable from those of the 911 GT3. It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds with the manual gearbox, while the same time can be achieved in 3.9 seconds with the PDK Automatic.
The 911 GT3 has been added on the Porsche India website along with the 911 GT3 and this is an indication that both sports cars will be launched in the country soon.
