Porsche looks likely to keep the less aggressive, less aero-focused Touring as a part of the 2020 911 GT3 line-up.

Porsche has been caught testing its more subtle 992-generation 911 GT3 Touring, ahead of a likely reveal in 2020.

Like the outgoing GT3 Touring, the 992 model wears an aggressive front splitter and air intakes, along with pumped-up guards. The biggest changes to the body – compared to the 991 GT3, and to the regular 911 – come at the rear.

Along with aggressively flared rear guards, there's a racy-looking diffuser and centrally mounted twin pipes. But the most notable design element is the rear wing, or lack thereof.

Like the previous GT3 Touring, expect the new model to instead feature a modified version of the pop-up rear spoiler from the regular 911 range to deliver a cleaner, more classical Porsche silhouette.

Although they mightn't be production-spec, the wheels on the GT3 Touring appear wider than those of the stock 911, and carry a more intricate design than those fitted to the current model.

Under the bonnet, expect to see an updated variant of the 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six used in the current GT3 line-up. The outgoing Touring outputs 368kW and 460Nm, with a 9000rpm redline.

It's currently mated with a manual transmission. Porsche hasn't confirmed what will be hooked up to the engine, but we're crossing our fingers it'll have three pedals again.

The new GT3 is expected to be revealed in 2020, while the GT3 Touring is likely to follow. Stay tuned for more in the coming months.
