Porsche’s latest 911 GT3 only arrived for the 2022 model year, but an updated version has been tested.
The update appears to be light and likely coincides with the planned update for the full 992 generation lineup. Updated versions of the Carrera, Carrera Cabriolet, Carrera GTS, Targa, Turbo and Turbo S are also on the way. test. A new Heritage Design special with retro elements is also being tested, considered a modern 911 S/T.
We expect the updated 911 range, internally called the 992.2 generation, to start arriving late this year or early next. These should be 2024 models.
Key among the updates will be a revised dashboard featuring an all-digital instrument cluster, similar to what’s in the Taycan and also the updated 2024 Cayenne.
Adjustments to the front and rear fascias are also likely, judging by the camouflage equipment.
It’s unclear what Porsche has planned for mechanical parts, but a slight power boost is normally included with such updates. The GT3 currently comes with a 4.0-liter flat-6 that delivers a peak power of 502 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic or a 6-speed manual.

Hybrid technology will be available on some models, but probably not on the GT3. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said in 2022 that the 911’s hybrid system would be similar to the system in the old 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car, not a plug-in hybrid system like in the 918 Spyder hypercar. This means that there will be no plug and any electric motor-generator will only be used to support the internal combustion engine and recuperate braking energy.
Porsche Motorsports partner Manthey-Racing has just launched an upgrade package for the current GT3 in the US that cuts the car’s track times through aero and chassis mods. It’s likely the company will also have a similar kit in development for the updated GT3.
