New GT3 looks lean and mean with production-ready body work

The next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 has been spied again, but this time much more clearly and in greater detail.

Unlike the previous set of photographs captured at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, this latest prototype was snapped up close and at much lower velocities than the previous car.

Despite the abundance of false body panels, especially around the front air intakes, tail-lights and rear bumper, as well as the non-production version of the large rear wing, we now have a much clearer view of the next 911 GT3.

Although the styling is evolutionary, the GT3's generously flared wheel arches, full-width LED tail-lights, and twin central exhausts give it a menacing presence that's hard to ignore.

Although rumours persist the GT3 will shift to a turbocharged engine, our spy photography agency still believes this car is powered by a naturally-aspirated flat-six engine.

If so, we expect it to feature around 410kW of power, a jump up from today's current GT3 RS, which has a mere 383kW at its disposal.

Naturally, Porsche will introduce the more sedate members of the new 911 family, codenamed 992, first. Talk suggests the new GT3 might be introduced as early as the 2019 Frankfurt motor show in September.
