During Rennsport Reunion 7, Porsche announced the latest version of the Porsche 911 – the GT3 R rennsport. This new model follows the recently unveiled Porsche 911 S/T, which marks a milestone in the German automaker’s 75th anniversary celebrations.

The Porsche 911 GT3 R rennsport takes the 911 to a whole new level, defying conventional thinking about the iconic sports car. It’s impressive, considering the capabilities of the latest 911 GT3 RS as a production car and the advancements made with the aforementioned S/T.

This version of the GT3 R rennsport is not street legal as it is based on the GT3 R race car. With only 77 units available and a price tag of $1,046,000 each, it is mostly suitable for private collectors.

However, there is still a chance for car enthusiasts to witness the GT3 R rennsport in action. Some lucky owners may bring their cars to events, meets, or even motorsport venues for unofficial races where the car would dominate on the track. It would be a dream come true to see this car in action.

“The new Porsche 911 GT3 R rennsport offers the experience of driving a nine-eleven-based racing car in what is probably the most primal form.”

– Thomas Laudenbach, Head of Motorsports

Performance & Chassis

The GT3 R rennsport is powered by a special 4.2L flat-6 engine, previously exclusive to the race car it is based on. This naturally-aspirated boxer engine now produces 612 bhp and has a redline of 9,400 rpm. The car features a 6-speed sequential dog-type transmission and carries over most of the chassis components from the race car. It has a 5-way KW suspension system, AP Racing brakes, and Michelin Pilot Sport M S9 slicks.

Body & Styling

The GT3 R rennsport pays homage to the Porsche 935 with its Martini Racing colorways, angular wheel arches, and rear wing. The front fascia has unique ducts and intakes, and the car features specially designed 18″ BBS wheels. The rear apron is more streamlined and seamlessly integrates with the rear wing assembly. Inside, the car has a single driver’s seat, race gadgetry, and a competition-grade roll cage. The entire car weighs only 1,240 kg.

Pricing & Availability

The Porsche 911 GT3 R rennsport is priced at over a million dollars. The final price may vary depending on options and customizations. Only 77 units will be produced, with deliveries starting early next year.
