2013 Porsche 911 GT3 R
Porsche has revealed its 2013-spec 911 GT3 R race car, which is based on the 997 model for another season.

The augmented carbon fibre kevlar aero package has been fine-tuned in the wind tunnel, with the front bumper, all fenders, sill covers, diffuser and under-body panelling all revised for 2013. The rear wing has also been repositioned and stretched to match the width of the body.

Beneath the 911’s skin the suspension has been modified, with the track of the front and rear axles growing by 50 mm, the wheelbase stretching by 10 mm and width of the front wheels increasing from 10.9 to 12-inches. Saucy.

The outgoing car‘s 368 kW (500 hp) 4.0-litre six-cylinder flat engine has been retained, which sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential dog-type gearbox operated via flappy-paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

Porsche is offering kits for €45,500 (plus taxes) to customer teams wanting convert their cars to the latest specification.
