The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is one of the fastest 911s the company has ever built. With a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine capable of 502 horsepower (374 kilowatts) and 346 pound-feet (469 newton-meters), the latest GT3 will hit 60 in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 197 miles per hour peak.
And now you can get everything going without the show – fenders, vents, etc. – with the introduction of the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring. This is the second time that Porsche has offered a Touring version of its GT3 model, after the previous 991.2. And just like its predecessor, this one has all the power of the GT3, but with a more understated style.
The biggest visual difference between the traditional 911 GT3 and the Touring model is the rear spoiler, or lack thereof, opting for an auto-extending rear spoiler instead of the oversized static fender. The front fairing also receives a custom grille, the window surrounds now carry a silver trim, the exhaust is available in a standard silver finish (with satin black as an option) and there is an elegant GT3 Touring badge located on the rear bumper.
The same 20- and 21-inch offset wheels of the normal GT3 are retained, as are the many exterior paint and interior leather options. Only now the Touring model offers extended leather upholstery as standard, with black leather on the top of the dashboard and a handful of alternate color options available for the lower section of the dashboard.
Under the hood is the GT3’s naturally aspirated flat-six engine, only now can buyers opt for a six-speed manual or a PDK gearbox. The previous GT3 Touring only offered a six-speed manual transmission. But there is one condition: If you live in California, you will only be able to purchase the PDK due to state noise regulations.
The GT3 Touring goes on sale later this year with a starting price of $ 161,000 (not including $ 1,350 in handling fees). The standard GT3, on the other hand, charges $ 161,100 for the 2022 model year.
