2021 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Driving in London Tunnel Looks Sharp in Hypnotic Render

February is a big month for fans of the Porsche 911 GT3, and there might be quite a few of those around. This is the month when motorsport teams will start receiving the 992 GT3 Cup racer that was introduced last fall, while the rumor mill talks about the 2021 GT3 street-legal car making its official debut in two weeks from now. Meanwhile, we can enjoy the charms of the race car in the independent rendering that sits on our screens.

We'll be feasting our eyes on a short video that portrays the new GT3 Cup, glorious wing included, haunting a tunnel like some sort of checkered flag ghost. And, thanks to the sky-high (no pun intended) quality of the work, it all looks like one of those pre-release appetizers that briefly show the car doing its thing. After all, the Zuffenhausen-based automaker pulled such a stunt with the upcoming road car, showcasing it in a Porsche Museum stunt, remember?

The soundtrack is a key part of the immersive experience, bringing us the "voice" of London, traffic and all; as Khyzyl Saleem, the digital artist responsible for the work, reminds us in the description of the Instagram post below, he's used this tunnel underneath the British capital city for many scenes.

While we're talking about the mind behind the pixels, you should know Saleem is in the first line of the digital revolution, with his efforts ranging from renderings that create small universes to designing vehicles for the real world.

As for the GT3 Cup, we can't wait to see this being unleashed on the track, since the power bump that pushes its 4.0-liter N/A boxer, an engine that can now run on synthetic fuels to lower its CO2 emissions, to 510 hp is just the tip of the iceberg.

In a first for the badge, the racer features the widebody approach of the 911 Turbo, which allows for wider wheels and tires to be installed.

And while the cockpit was completely revised, Porsche also focused on making the car most cost-effective to run, so small teams can rival the big names on the grid.
