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?
