The Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package Doesn't Have Time For Massive Wings
The 911 GT3 has lost its rear wing for this new, more subtle 'Touring Package' option, making its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
Although the 991.2 911 GT3‘s rear wing isn’t quite as substantial as the one found on the RS, it’s still a rather overt chunk of carbonfibre. Happily, if you find it a bit much, you can now have it taken off your GT3 as part of the new ‘Touring Package’.
Referencing a pack originally available on the 1973 911 Carrera RS, it’s a no-cost option for the manual gearbox GT3 only that replaces the fixed wing with a lower, retractable version (no word on how much downforce the change costs you). And that’s it, really. The rest of the bodywork is unchanged, as is the glorious, 493bhp 4.0-litre flat-six.
There are a few changes on the inside to make the car a little more luxurious though, mostly centred around ditching the lashings ofbecause racecar Alcantara in favour of leather. As such, the GT3’s super-focused ‘Clubsport’ pack can’t be combined with the Touring, nor can any Alcantara-based option. Other than that though, Porsche says: “Virtually all 911 GT3 options are also available in combination with the Touring Package.”
So, what will it be for you? A regular GT3, or the more subtle Touring Package?
