New Porsche 911 GT3 Or GT3 RS Caught Out In The Open On Stuttgart Highway [Video]

A Porsche 911 GT3 Or GT3 RS has been spotted (and taped) out in the open near Stuttgart, Germany.

The company is currently testing future versions of their new 911. And a driver recently recorded the car being driven on a highway late in the evening.

As a result of the poor lighting, it was hard to determine whether the auto was the GT3 or the GT3 RS. But, given the positioning of the rear wing and tailpipes, as well as the fact that the non-RS version is due to be revealed first, it's sort of safe to assume that it's the former.

Prior spy photos have displayed the features that will set the 911 GT3 apart from the Carrera and Carrera S, with the distinctive front and rear bumpers, flared wheel arches and different wheels with a single central lock nut.

Porshe fans likely already know what the interior of the vehicle will look like, even without the luxury of spy images. This new product should boast a totally redesigned dashboard and center console, native to the 992-models. An instrument binnacle with a traditional rev counter will have digital screens on either side.

There should be a few changes to bring about a sportier feel, including sports seats with trim updates.

While it has not yet been confirmed, it is thought that the 911 GT3 will feature the flat-six, naturally aspirated engine as Porshe has said they'll keep it for the RS model. The exact displacement is still unknown but it is said to sound like the same one running the outgoing GT3 which hits 493 horsepower and 338 pound-feet of torque.

Traditional fans are likely to go for the six-speed manual model but if you don't care for changing gears, there's the option of a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch.

The 911 GT3 will likely drop in 2020, while the Carrera-based models - the turbo and GTS - are expected to debut during the second half of this year.
