Spotted: The New Porsche GT3 loses its camo

    The upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 bares (nearly) everything

    Having teased us with heavily-camouflaged prototypes for months on end, Porsche have finally let their new 911 GT3 out into the wild without much of a disguise. What we're seeing here is almost guaranteed to be identical to the production car, maintaining the now-familiar 992-era lines and width.

    The lack of camo means that the new air intakes and vents on the front and rear of the 911 are clear to see, along with the oversized rear quarters, complex top-mounted rear wing and aggressive rear diffuser, which houses the twin central-exit exhausts.

    Judging by the soundtrack of the prototype, the n/a flat-six is sticking around. With a new 4.0l motor being introduced for the previous-generation 991.2 GT3, it is likely a tweaked version of this unit will power the upcoming 992 GT3.

    In terms of transmission, the most likely option will be an eight-speed PDK unit, though with Porsche being justifiably proud of keeping the manual transmission alive, fans may yet be appeased with a six-speed manual option in the future.

    With the existence of the hardcore Rennsport (RS) variant confirmed by earlier spy photographs, it is only a matter of time before that too loses its disguise.

    • The rear end is getting a little to busy for me

    • Sorry, but in my eyes it has become a blob with a towel holder bolted to it

    • Is it bad that I just much prefer the aesthetic of the 991?

    • I like everything but the dual vents at the front of the hood.

    • As good as this will be we all know the RS version will look even more aggressive and ring ready.
