Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package deletes the rear wing

Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package deletes the rear wing

The new Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Pack was unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show, adding a new, broader - whisper it - less extrovert vibe to the benchmark sports auto.

Instead of a fixed rear-wing, the 911 GT3 Touring will have an adaptive rear spoiler with a subtle gurney flap similar to the one featured on the standard 911 Carrera.

Porsche has unveiled a cheaper but no less powerful alternative to the rare and now discontinued 911 R in the form of a new 911 GT3 model featuring a so-called Touring Package. Unlike the GT3, the Touring won't be available with Porsche's seven-speed PDK automatic - only the six-speed manual will be offered. The rear-drive vehicle is capable of 0-60 miles per hour acceleration of 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 196 miles per hour. Apart from certain Alcantara®-covered interior fittings, nearly all 911 GT3 options are also available in combination with the Touring Package. This includes all available exterior colors and wheel choices, along with carbon ceramic brakes, the front axle lift system, LED headlamps, seat options and the Sport Chrono package. The headrests feature embossed Porsche crests and all seams in the partial leather interior are sewn in black thread. In the "Black Exterior Touring Package" equipment option, these elements are in black, as with the 911 GT3.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. (DAL) Forming A Pattern Of Major Movements
Trexquant Invest LP stated it has 0.07% in Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL) during the third quarter, Holdings Channel reports. The hedge funds in our partner's database now have: 26.04 million shares, down from 26.45 million shares in 2016Q3.

In 2016, Porsche introduced the limited edition 911R with a naturally aspirated engine sending power to the rear wheels through a manual transmission. Inside, the interior is swaddled in leather rather than Alcantara, lending a more classic appeal and comfortable personality. The naturally aspirated six-cylinder flat engine with four-litre displacement is taken from racing cars such as the 911 RSR and 911 GT3 Cup. This function is activated via the "Sport" button on the centre console, delivering dynamic shift processes from faster synchronisation of the gears.

The 991 911R production cars soon became harder to come by than Porsche's multi-million dollar 918 hypercar, leaving numerous brand's fans high and dry.

The chassis of the 911 GT3 is a testament to Porsche's experience in motorsport. It steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction as the front wheels for added agility at lower speeds and in the same direction as the front wheels for greater longitudinal stability at higher speeds.
