The 2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup's 3.8-liter engine is a naturally aspirated. Porsche has managed to squeeze and extra 10 horsepower from this engine, bringing the horsepower up to 460.
Drive power is delivered via the six-speed manual transmission from Porsche Motorsport. For the first time in a Porsche racing car, the gearshift is controlled by paddles mounted on the steering wheel.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is instantly recognizable as a 911. The bonnet sweeps down to the grille, which is very low to the ground. The curving roof slopes down towards the rear, which is dominated by the huge spoiler. The twin exhausts outlets are mounted in the center.
The goal of the designers was to take driver safety to a new level. The driver cage is a totally new design that provides greater protection should the car be involved in a collision. The special racing seat is also newly designed, and is contoured to fit around the driver's head and shoulders. Adjustable padding makes the seat adaptable for any driver.
Improved traction is evident by using a larger tire size. The front tire width has been increased to 27 centimeters (10.6 inches), and the rear to 31 centimeters (12.2 inches.)
The designers have fine-tuned the 2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, and redesigned the axle geometry. The net result of the redesigns and improvements is that the car is much easier to handle at top speed and in challenging conditions.
