The Porsche 911 is a synonym for uncompromising sportiness. Each one was developed for superlative performance. Now, the latest incarnation of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is based on the seventh generation of this sports car icon.

Both originate from the same production line. In the main factory in Zuffenhausen. It is only once they are fully assembled that their paths diverge. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup receives its finishing touches in Flacht. Our Motorsport Manufaktur in Weissach. So that, ultimately, it lives up to its calling: uncompromising performance on the race track.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is a precision instrument for the race track, optimised for customer motorsports. Power, aerodynamics, longevity, safety, cost efficiency – we've improved every aspect. On principle. But, above all, for our customers.

The revamped appearance of the 911 GT3 Cup is distinguished by new front and rear aprons for optimised airflow, four-point LED headlights and taillights in contemporary design.

Even the control concept is new: the revised software enables vehicle diagnostics to be performed on the steering wheel display. Extra sensors on the car augment the information content of acquired vehicle data. This, in turn, increases the data evaluation potential.

Developed from scratch, the new engine offers even greater power output than before. This four-liter six-cylinder boxer unit delivers up to 485 hp (357 kW) at 7,250 – 8,000 rpm. Drive force is transmitted to the rear axle by a racing clutch and a Porsche six-speed sequential dog-type transmission. Gears are changed manually by means of paddle shifts with electropneumatic assistance.

A key advantage of the new drive system: we've managed to double the engine and transmission run times before the first rebuild is due (engine: from 50 to 100 hours; transmission: from 30 to 60 hours). For reduced operating costs.

The fate of the 911 GT3 Cup is played out in our one-make championships. What sets these apart? Equal opportunities by means of technically identical cars. All teams compete with the 911 GT3 Cup. This makes the races even more exciting. What counts is the performance of the individual, from the driver to every member of the team.

Fierce challenges on the track are not the only things that await our customers. The races attract a large audience. That's because Porsche one-make championships are almost always staged as part of the world's most important racing series.
