The car’s slimmer driving lights and tail-lights ensure the GT3 will be in-line with the rest of the new 991 Porsche 911 range.

Other changes over the previous 997 GT3 include the wider haunches, restyled front and rear bumpers and new side skirts, while the centrally located twin exhaust pipes are carried over from the last of the 997s, the GT3 RS 4.0.

Expected to be lighter and more powerful than model it replaces, the new Porsche GT3’s transmission, bolted to Porsche’s renowned flat-six boxer engine, is still up for speculation with rumours of a six-speed manual, seven-speed manual, or seven-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic transmission.

The 991-generation GT3 is due to be revealed at next month’s 2012 Paris motor show.
