Porsche has unveiled a more subtle 911 GT3 if you aren’t a fan of that huge fixed rear wing. Called the 911 GT3 Touring Package loses the fixed rear wing and instead gets a variable rear spoiler like the 911 Carrera. With the exception of the rear, the body of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package remains unchanged.
The name “Touring Package” harks back to an equipment variant of the 1973 911 Carrera RS. “This variant is aimed at fans of high-quality sports cars who particularly value an understated appearance and classic driving enjoyment.”
Even with its more toned down exterior, the 911 GT3 Touring Package is still powered by the same 500 horsepower naturally-aspirated 4.0L six-cylinder as the standard 911 GT3. That power is sent to the ground via a six-speed manual transmission and a automatic intermediate acceleration function ensures an exciting sound when downshifting. The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package can reach 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 196 mph.
Besides the Clubsport Package and Alcantara equipment ranges all 911 GT3 options are also available in combination with the Touring Package. They include features such as all exterior and wheel colors, the PCCB ceramic brake, the lift system, LED headlights, all seat variants, the Chrono Package and the audio systems.
