Porsche Motorsport North America, Inc. has announced that production on the 911 GT America has begun in Germany.
The Porsche 911 GT America is a race car based on the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, but designed exclusively for the new United Sports Car Racing (USCR) Series GT Daytona class for next season. Deliveries on the new race car will begin in October this year and will be available for teams committed to running the entire 2014 USCR season.
With the race cars being delivered in October, teams will have plenty of time to prepare and test ahead of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the first race of the season. Powered by a Porsche flat-six, 4.0-liter engine, the 911 GT America has 470 horsepower and a six-speed sequential gearbox. In addition, it will feature a newly-developed braking system to improve endurance qualities compared to its predecessor.
Retail pricing on the 911 GT America is set at $269,000 not including shipping and parts packaging.
