Porsche Brings Back Wingless Touring Package for 2022 911 GT3

No show, all go for 911 GT3 Touring

  • It’s the GT3 bits without all of the showiness

  • A six-speed stick and seven-speed dual-clutch will be offered


It’s the GT3 that puts the emphasis on GT and goes a bit more softly on the 3. Porsche is adding a Touring package to the latest version of its 911 GT3 model that makes the sports car a bit more subtle while maintaining nearly all of the performance.

The last-generation Porsche 911 GT3 was the first in the GT line to get a Touring package. It came with most of the GT3’s high-performance changes but went with less is more on the body kit. This latest model does the same thing, dropping the massive fixed rear wing of the standard GT3. Instead, the car gets its downforce from an extending rear spoiler that retracts back into the boot lid when not needed.

In place of a front end covered with highly visible vents and ducts, the nose of the GT3 Touring is painted all in body colour. Combine those changes with the shiny gloss anodised aluminum window trim and at first glance, this is just another 911.

Inside, a leather interior is standard. It gets Porsche’s extended leather treatment and the exact spec is Touring only. That includes special embossing for the front of the dash and the upper door trims as well as fabric inserts for the seats. More interior finish options will be offered, with the car getting “almost all” of the options available on the standard GT3.

The mechanical bits are the same, starting with the 510 hp 4.0L naturally-aspirated flat-six. The dampers are a touch softer, but it gets the rest of the 911 GT3’s suspension. Including the double-wishbone front. Like the last 911 GT3 Touring, this one will offer a six-speed automatic. Unlike the last one, a seven-speed dual-clutch box is also available.

The Touring package comes at no extra charge on the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 model, which will surely be of comfort to its buyers. Expect deliveries early next year.
