If extreme is not enough for you and you believe the “ordinary” Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is too tame, then Porsche has a new toy for you, at least if you are a serious racer: the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup S. But you can also call it “the wing”.
The new S also gets a small 20hp advantage over the current GT3 Cup, developing a peak output of 440hp compared to the non-S model’s 420hp. The bump in power is courtesy of some ECU mods and a new exhaust system. Maximum torque remains the same 440Nm at 7,250rpm.
Several suspension components for the GT3 Cup S have been taken from the more powerful GT3 RSR which races in the GT2 class at international long-distance championships. The braking system of the GT3 Cup S was adjusted to the increased power compared to the GT3 Cup. At the rear the diameter of the brake discs has grown by 5mm to now measure 355mm.
Enthusiasts will have to front up the €250,000 asking price to get their hands on one and the first cars won’t be available until April.
