Porsche has officially unveiled its 2023 911 GT3 R which will soon appear at GT3-compliant worldwide motorsports events such as the North American IMSA series, FIA WEC World Endurance Championship, and 24-Hour Le Mans in 2024. Based on the 992-generation 911, the new track-only coupe will feature a flat-six engine that’s five percent bigger than the last model, better aerodynamics, and optimized vehicle balance.

“The new 911 GT3 R has big shoes to fill,” says Michael Dreiser, Sales Director at Porsche Motorsport, in a press release. “Its forerunner has won almost everything there is to win in the GT3 scene in four seasons since 2019. Its stand-out successes include overall victories at the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and also here at Spa-Francorchamps. Raced by our customers, the predecessor scored class victories at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. The new model faces a massive workload in the hands of the Porsche customer racing teams.”

Development for the customer racing car first began in 2019, focusing on improving driveability, reducing running costs, and increasing overall performance. Major changes include increased engine capacity from 3,997 to 4,194cc, optimized torque and power curves, modified suspension, new racing brake calipers courtesy of the specialists at AP, a rear wing that features a swan-neck mount, and a revamped aluminum-steel composite body. The racecar is designed first and foremost to suit the driver with an adapted ergonomic seat position that’s shifted closer to the center, an improved roll cage, and an upgraded steering wheel design.

The 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 R is priced at $567,210 USD and is now on sale now through Porsche Motorsport North America. Take a first look at the vehicle above and catch its competition debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 scheduled for January 2023.
