The next-generation Porsche 911 GT3, due in 2020, has been spotted testing on public roads in near-production bodywork.
Previous test mules had greater amounts of camouflage, making this the first time the upcoming car's front end has been seen almost entirely undisguised - revealing an extra air intake between the headlights. This latest prototype also reveals the sizeable signature rear wing, and a similar rear LED light bar to the new 992-series 911 due to be shown at this year's Los Angeles motor show.
The next GT3 is expected to resign an illustrious line of race-bred naturally aspirated performance engines to the history books, according to sources close to the German car maker, who suggest it is due to adopt a twin-turbocharged powerplant.
The move, not yet officially confirmed by Porsche, would bring the 2020 911 GT3 and its more heavily focused 911 GT3 RS sibling into line with other models in the new 992-series 911 line-up, which are already confirmed to received updated versions of today’s turbocharged 3.0-litre and 3.8-litre units.
