iRacing Release Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car

One of the most popular race cars in the world is now available on iRacing, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup.  With a naturally aspirated 4-liter flat 6 engine producing 485 hp and just enough – but not too much – aero, the 911 GT3 Cup is a fan favorite among those of us who have the means to be weekend warrior racers in over 20 series around the world.

Gearbox: 6-speed semi-automatic (paddle shift), dog-type manual transmission

Fuel delivery: Fuel injection

Aspiration: Naturally-aspirated

Length: 4,564 mm (179 in)

Width: 1,980 mm (78 in)

The 911 GT3 Cup will take over duties from the Ruf RT 12R C-Spec that currently runs in the ‘Ruf Cup’.  Official ‘Porsche iRacing Cup’ races begin next week, and based off of initial response, including us making some laps in it, will be very popular.  Fingers crossed it’s open setups…

And speaking of racing it, we will be hosting an ‘ISRTV 911 GT3 Cup Fun Race’ with the car today (1/27) at 4 pm est / 9 pm gmt at Sebring (60 min practice, 10 min qual, 20 min race).  No password required, and who knows, maybe you’ll get to see yourselves in an upcoming Test Drive
