First test in competition for the new Porsche 911 GT3 R


The Porsche 911 GT3 R based on the 992 generation will test itself against the competition for the first time. The German will thus be exploited by Manthey this weekend at the Nürburgring, for the seventh round of the Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie. It will be entered in the 24h-Special SP-X category with only one other car, a KTM X-Bow GT2 from the True Racing team. This class is reserved for cars still in development. Two Frenchmen will share the wheel of the new GT from the Stuttgart-based firm: Frédéric Makowiecki, accustomed to the development of the German manufacturer’s new racing cars, and Julien Andlauer.

This new challenger for GT3 series around the world is based on the current 992 generation and will be ready to race at the start of the 2023 season. Development began in 2019. Priority was given to improving handling for professional and gentleman drivers, as well as exploiting larger performance reserves for different Balance of Performance (BoP) classifications. Another goal was to streamline race car management for teams and reduce running costs.
