Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Peeked With Cladding Covering The Rear Bumper

Porsche is updating its 911 lineup, and a new set of spy photos captures testing the Touring 911 GT3 in the snow. The car looks exposed, but the automaker used deceptively black cladding to hide the coupe’s styling changes.

New photos reveal that the 911 GT3 Touring will receive many of the same updates as the regular GT3 which is also in development. The front of the Touring is exposed, looking unchanged, but that doesn’t mean Porsche plans to leave it alone. The car is in the early stages of development, and front-end changes could come later.

Most of the camouflage on this test vehicle was rear. The car wears a black bumper cover which hides the design changes. Porsche will likely restyle its bumper, but it can’t hide a large rear diffuser with more prominent vertical elements than the current car. However, the rounded dual exhaust tips remain.

The new images don’t show the car’s interior, but we’ve got a look inside the revamped 911 Carrera. The car gets a new digital instrument cluster which is expected to proliferate across the range, including the GT3 Touring. However, it looks like the new screen will be the most significant change made to the cabin.

The GT3 Touring debuts in 2021 with a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six. The engine produces 502 horsepower (374 kilowatts) and 346 pound-feet (469 Newton-meters) of torque, and it’s unclear whether the current powertrain will carry over to the new car. We know the company has plans to introduce a performance-focused 911 hybrid, but the details are elusive. Porsche is offering the Touring currently with a six-speed manual or PDK gearbox.

The revamped Porsche 911 is in the early stages of development, so we’ll be waiting a while for its official debut. Porsche will likely start revealing models with the 911 Carrera before launching other variants, but the automaker could surprise us. We doubt we’ll see any new 911 break covers before the end of the year, so expect big things for the iconic 2023 model from the brand.
