The new Porsche GT3 Cup is up by 30bhp over the old version
27 October 2010

Porsche has announced that its 2011 911 GT3 Cup race car will be based on the harder and faster 911 GT3 RS.

This replaces the current GT3, and features a wider body to accommodate bigger wheels and also houses the slightly larger 3.8-litre flat-six engine with 444bhp: up by 30bhp on the outgoing version.

Changes to the new car for the Cup racer include a weight reduction of 170kgs to 1200kgs and bigger front and rear spoilers for increased down-force on track. LED lights are directly carried over from the road car, as are the front body panels.

The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup will cost just over £111,000 and deliveries to customers will begin in early 2011.

Over 1,400 911 GT3 Cups have been sold since 1998, making it the best selling race car of all time, Porsche claims.
