Porshe is pushing the limits of the Porshe 911 GT3 Cup by adding a bigger engine to boost more horsepower. The Porshe 911 GT3 Cup will be used for a variety of national Porsche Carrera Cup championships and the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup, which facilitates the F1 competitions as well. 

Though the outgoing Porshe 911 GT3 Cup racer was centered on the 911 GT3 street version, the 2011 Porshe 911 GT3 Cup is based on a much tougher, faster and agile GT3 RS version. This suggests that a wider body GT3 RS version will be able to accommodate bigger wheels and brakes. Moreover, it comes with a larger sized 3.8-liter flat-six producing 450 horsepower, which is about 30 more horsepower than the outgoing model. To help keep the Porshe 911 GT3 Cup at bay, Porshe offers a competitive aero package and LED lighting just in case tracks go dark.

The 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup will make its track debut at the beginning round of next season’s Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship.¬†Since 1998, over 1,400 Porshe 911 GT3 Cup has been distributed for these competitions, and Porsche maintains its position for the best-selling racing car of all time.
