New motorsport inspired accessories for 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS
Porsche Tequipment is offering new product line of motorsport accessories on all Type 997 models in the GT3 and GT3 RS range. Starting from September, the new line is targeted to Porsche enthusiasts which now are able to further enhance the exterior of his car with weight-optimised materials such as titanium and carbon also used in motorsport. All optional accessories have been inspired from the race track and developed by the Porsche Motorsport Division engineers.
The new double tailpipe made of titanium, for example, reduces the weight of the car at the rear, the white-metallic patina of the tailpipe turning blue when exposed to high exhaust temperatures, like on many racing cars.
The spoiler lip at the rear (Gurney flap) and the ram air scoop on the rear lid provide a further reduction of weight and add a striking look to the car. Both are made of super-light but extra-stable carbon.
The front air outlet above the bumper and the rear-view mirrors are also available in carbon which, being a very stiff material, enabled Porsche's engineers to choose an even more open structure on the air outlet, this special motorsport component now coming with just one middle bar instead of the usual three reinforcement bars. Yet a further point is that the carbon elements add additional optical highlights particularly on cars finished in a light exterior colour.
The titanium-coloured second-generation 19-inch GT3 wheels complete with central locking are likewise a new feature in the range. The wheel bolts are made of forged aluminium and finished in red eloxy-plating. To customise the first generation of the 911 GT3 and GT3 RS (Type 997), there is also special a model designation in various colours extending round the wheel. The special trim film used for this purpose is made of the same highly resistant material as the starter numbers on racing cars for lasting quality.
