While most of us are preparing for the Holidays, Porsche never stops innovating. Despite social distancing procedures at their Weissach proving grounds, the 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is ready to race. As the 7th-generation 911 Cup car, it was necessary to test it in every possible condition. The project began with a bare shell during the summer of last year, with a prototype hitting the track in only 10 days.
The latest race car from Stuttgart embarked on a tour of Europe. From Monza, the team headed to Lausitzring and the Nürburgring with feedback from Porsche drivers young and old. The most intense testing came at Oschersleben when the GT Racing program simulated a complete weekend of competition. Manager Christoph Werner said ““The idea was to simulate an entire race weekend from our customers’ perspective and to use the vehicle as the teams would – including deliberately inciting problems, incorrect operations, and damage scenarios.” Since 1990, Porsche has built 4,251 examples of the 911 that are ready to race.
