Since the Porsche 911 lineup is incredibly generous, holding in excess of twenty derivatives at a time, it's only normal for the Neunelfer prototype fleet to be rich. In fact, the current list of Porsche 911 testers includes at least one 991.2 model, namely the Speedster, along with well over three derivatives of the 992. The latter include the Carrera, Turbo (these two come in multiple forms) and the GT3.
Well, we are now here to focus on the 2020 Porsche 911 GT3, which has recently been spotted in traffic.

Compared to the 992 Carrera test cars, the GT Division animal showcases fatter wheel arches, which are here to hold the traditional center-lock wheels.

As for the all-important posterior of the machine, the typical central exhaust layout of the GT3 is here, but we can't say the same thing about the fixed wing.

Sure, the aero element adorning the rear end of this prototype might be generous. but we're looking at the active wing showcased by the Carrera prototype, while the GT3 will receive its dedicated goodie.

Then again, the most important change will take place under that wing. In fact, what matters is that we're expecting the German to not change the heart of the GT3 too much.

Porsche's Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser all but confirmed the atmospheric aura of the 992 GT3 and GT3 RS earlier this year. The man helming the GT motorsport and GT road car divisions stated that the naturally aspirated flat-six would be held in production for as long as possible. The executive also mentioned the special place of the manual gearbox, which means the newcomer has serious chances of offering a six-speed, three-pedal setup alongside the obvious PDK.

Until the next incarnation of the GT3 lands, we'll remind you that Porsche is about to introduce the 2019 718 Cayman GT4 and 718 Boxster Spyder. And yes, the two will pack downtuned versions of the current 911 GT3's 4.0-liter atmospheric boxer motor.
