Porsche 911 GT3 Facelift Spied Hitting the Nurburgring

The Porsche 911 GT3 will be getting a facelift for the 991 generation.

Caught by spy photographers testing on the Nurburgring, the 991.2 GT3 is expected to arrive dealerships in 2017 and you can expect it to get a similar treatment that comes with all mid-cycle facelifts. The prototype spied testing is an early test mule based on the current version, but does sport a new front bumper with larger air intakes. Future test cars will likely receive the rest of the updates, especially changes in the rear.

One thing we know for sure is the updated 911 GT3 won’t get a turbocharged engine but it should still see a power upgrade compared to the current model. What is good news is that there’s a strong possibility the German automaker will give the facelifted model a manual transmission option, instead of waiting for the next-generation GT3 to arrive.
