The first photos of Porsche’s new GT3 and GT4 machinery have been revealed, following a multi-day test for the German manufacturer at Monza.

Both the soon-to-be-launched 2019-spec Porsche 911 GT3 R and new Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR appear to have been testing at the Italian circuit, alongside Porsche’s current-generation 911 RSR GTE car and another unidentified car, which could be the 911 GT2 RS. 

The images, courtesy of monzamotorsport.com, shows noticeable aero changes to the GT3 model, including a re-profiled nose, increased cooling ducts on the side and a larger rear diffuser. 

Porsche’s second-generation GT4 car, meanwhile, is understood to feature a 4.0-liter flat-six engine compared to its current 3.8-liter powerplant.

Sportscar365 believes that the new GT3 car could be formally launched next month ahead of its race debut later this year, likely in VLN competition. A similar timeline for the GT4 model could also be possible, as part of Porsche’s all-new customer GT lineup offering for 2019.

    Hope it will sound like the 911 RSR.

      It will not sound like the RSR as the GT3 spec cars run a catalyst/ muffler and the RSR is wide open.

      God I hope it doesn’t, a field of GT3Rs sounding like the RSR and I’ll need to get a better camper to hide in. That’s the worst noise ever from a car.

        Andrew, if it’s to loud you’re…

        How does that go again? I don’t know. I forget.

        Anyway, you kids get off of my dang lawn!

    It’s good to see that all of the Porsche teams will be forced into buying brand new cars soon. There should be some current machinery that’ll be going for 50% off soon.

    I’m curious how they address the lack of rear diffuser space on the GT3 car since they’re not going mid-engine like the GTLM car.

    Wait the GT3 R had an Evo after VLN 8 last year… surely they can’t be doing another so soon??

      the evo is a small change. what I see and hear: a different exit duct on the front cover for the water cooler. flicks. a flywheel and some other small shit. the car in this article is a completely new car.
