Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package

GT3 buyers are going to have a nice little option early next year as the company is introducing a new Touring Package for Porsche's discerning purists. The new package ditches the rear wing and swaps it out with an adaptive rear spoiler much like you'd find on the 911 Carrera. 

The naturally-aspirated 4.0L flat-six still pushes out 500-hp and can get from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and will hit a top speed of 196 mph. A six-speed transmission will also be standard in the Touring Package. 

Though the rear wing is gone, all the exterior elements in the new GT3 remain and that includes wider rear fenders, front fascia intakes, and an air intake below the trunk lid. Exclusive to this model is an aerodynamic lip that's finished in the exterior color, side window surrounds, Sport Exhaust tailpipes, and silver headlight washer system covers. These elements can also be finished in black with the "Exterior in Black" option."

The Touring Package option will be available in early 2018 and will be available with almost all the same options as the standard GT3.
