The 2016 911 GT3 Cup car features a 3.8-liter, six-cylinder boxer engine capable of generating 460 horsepower at 7,500 RPM. The suspension has been heavily modified to handle the higher precision required to navigate the GT3 Cup car around challenging race circuits at high speeds. The wheelbase has been increased by 100 millimeters along with a redesigned single-piece 18 inch racing wheel with central locking. A McPherson suspension strut that is adjustable in height and camber is equipped at the front axle with the rear axle benefiting from a multilink suspension.
Braking responsibilities are being handled by aluminum six-piston racing calipers in mono-bloc design at the front and aluminum four-piston racing calipers in mono-bloc design at the rear. Safety features not found in the street-legal Porsche 911 GT3 include a welded-in roll cage along with a FT3 safety fuel tank and the very important fire extinguishing system.
