Porsche 911 GT3 R Racer Details Revealed

By Auto News Log • January 14th, 2010

Porsche celebrated the world debut of its new 911 GT3 R racing car at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, UK today. As a further development of the 911 GT3 Cup that was presented in September for one-make cup racing, the new ‘R’ model replaces the 911 GT3 Cup S in Porsche Motorsports’ model range fully complying with the FIA GT3 regulations.

The GT3 R features a larger 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine delivering 480 horsepower and other technical developments designed to improve the performance of the 911. Additional modifications will include an anti-lock braking system, traction control and an electronic throttle with ‘blip’ function on gearbox down-changes that are said to make it much easier for drivers to get used to the GT3 R race car than the prior Cup S model.
