Porsche introduces new 911 GT3 with Touring package; drops fixed rear wing
Porsche has introduced the new 911 GT3 sports car with Touring package as a no-cost equipment package. The most interesting highlight of the sports car's exterior is the omission of the fixed rear wing. Porsche says that the high-performance vehicle has understated features which do not show off its talents outright.
The 911 GT3 Touring weighs only 1,418 kilograms, produces power of 375 kW and comes with a six-speed GT sports gearbox as standard. For the first time, the Touring package can also be combined with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission at no extra cost. To make up for the absence of the rear wing, necessary downforce at high speeds is guaranteed by an automatically extending rear spoiler.

The front light modules are dark-tinted.
