The latest Porsche 911 has been caught undergoing initial testing. Hot on the very brisk heels of the facelifted 997 – due on sale in July 2008 – comes Porsche’s track-biased 911.
At this stage it’s unclear whether the car snapped in our photos is the GT3, or the niche-within-a-niche GT3 RS. The front splitter, nose-mounted air vent and central exhausts are common to both models but that big rear wing is straight from the current RS.
Quite why the RS would appear on test before the ‘regular’ GT3 – which goes on sale in summer 2008 and has yet to be scooped – is unclear, unless the GT3 is getting said wing. From our pictures it’s unclear whether this car has the RS model’s wider rear track.
