The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup embodies Porsche Motorsport’s unwavering pursuit of racing supremacy. With a lineage dating back to 1990, over 4,250 units of this iconic cup car have been produced and sold. Its seventh-generation iteration introduces notable upgrades, including a robust 510 hp engine, optimized intake manifold, electronic gearshift, power steering, and a fully digital cockpit. Enhanced aerodynamics, courtesy of a larger rear wing and a double-wishbone front axle widening the front toe, ensure superior performance on the track. The interior features ergonomic enhancements such as illuminated controls and a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) steering wheel. Versatility is a hallmark, allowing participation in novice competitions and prestigious international events like the Carrera Cups and Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
