Not long after their series debut recently at Circuit Paul Richard, Porsche’s new 992 Cup car is eligible for competition and will now join the 911 class in the up and coming 24H Series.
The new Porsche 992 cup car will race for the first time from the Hankook 12H Hockenheimring and will then continue on into the season. Initially this non-homologated Porsche model was expected to race in the special prototype GTX class at the Paul Richard Circuit; however Creventic have maximised their efforts to further increase competition in the 911 class. The qualification now stands that all 992-gen Porsche 911 models that are entered for Hockenheim will now qualify to be eligible to race in the 911 class – even with an adjusted balance of their performance.
Although the new 992 cup car is eligible for competition, their latest 911 GT3 cup has been described as being more spectacular, faster and stronger than ever. Their latest 911 class comes with more destructive bodywork that is equally aerodynamic and proficient, along with an upgraded rear spoiler and a broader front neck on the car. These changes were made to create more stable handling. The driver will also be able to enjoy full electromechanical steering which has now been deemed as a standard for the first time.
Not to mention the additional upgrades that have also been made within the cabin including a new console mounted instrument cluster that was inspired by the Porsche’s 911 Hybrid LMP1 model. The driver will also get to experience a new 10.3 inch digital screen that is mounted directly in front of the driver’s seat which will allow them to receive information from the pit with ease.
The new 911 GT3 Cup car is also equipped with increased power going from 25hp to 510hp also now available with higher revs. The increase of the power in this model alongside the aerodynamics means that lap times should see a reduction of at least one percent. This is an exciting advantage for Porsche and has already achieved equivalent results on the track.
As Porsches new 992 cup car is eligible for competition this is very important for the brand as it gives them a great opportunity for the season ahead. Last year at Hankook 16H Hockenheimring, a Porsche 911 vehicle claimed the overall victory for the first time ever in the 24H Series. There is a great level of excitement for Porsche ahead of the upcoming series.
