Porsche has teased its new 911 GT3 R ahead of the car’s formal unveiling at the Nürburgring.

The German manufacturer will take the wraps off its fourth-generation model built to FIA GT3 regulations on Friday morning during a launch event at the Ring Boulevard, adjacent to the start/finish straight.

It comes ahead of this weekend’s Nürburgring 24, where eight of the current-generation Porsche GT3 cars are taking part in, including several full-factory crewed entries.

The teaser image, provided to Sportscar365, shows a distinctly different nose, as well as a green-colored stripe instead of the manufacturer’s traditional red. 

The car, based on the new 911 GT3 RS production car, is expected to feature several technical innovations, including developments from Porsche’s mid-engined 911 RSR.

It’s unclear if it features the same 4.0-liter normally aspirated flat-six engine from the road car or a much-rumored move to a turbocharged powerplant, which is believed to be within the GT3 regulations.

Sportscar365 understands that the GT3 car that was caught testing at Monza last month was not in final specification.
