When Porsche says they have made a new car, 9 out of 10 times the chances are it is a 911. The German carmaker took to the Frankfurt Motor Show stage to unveil the 911 GT3 Touring Package with a manual gearbox.
In essence, the 911 GT3 Touring Package is a variant of the 911 GT3 lineup, that will be sold with a manual box only, and the large, fixed spoiler is now replaced by a variable rear spoiler.
What this translates to is for those Porsche fans who missed out the 911R (which Porsche claimed will be the last manual gearbox 911) can buy the GT3 Touring Package variant. The car will not be a limited edition, but a standard production car.
Under the hood, rather under the boot, is a 4.0-litre straight six engine that makes 500bhp and 460Nm of torque, enough to propel the 911 GT3 Touring Package from 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and help reach a top speed of 316km/h.
Regarding equipment, customers can choose all the options specified in the GT3 spec, including Alcantara interior, ceramic brakes, and LED lights, apart from the rear spoiler.
Porsche at the moment has an extensive 911 range that suits almost every customer. With the addition of the 911 GT3 Touring Package, Porsche has filled in the non-existing gaps too, to ensure there is a 911 in every form.
