Porsche has unveiled the new GT3 Touring with a cleaner design and driving comfort rather than a track weapon. The Touring Package adopts the same features as the standard 911 GT3 and does not come with any mechanical changes. Porsche also reveals that the “Touring Package” terminology is in use since 1973 when Porsche used it on the 911 Carrera RS equivalent variant.
2021 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring – Design & Styling
Like the predecessor, the 911 GT3 Touring gets the same engine, transmission, suspension, wheels and tyres as the regular 911 GT3. But the most obvious difference is the omission of the fixed rear wing. Instead of the giant wing, a rear spoiler that automatically extends does the job of creating the downforce it requires to stay planted on the road.
The Touring model also gets silver trim strips on the side of the windows. This comes with high-gloss anodized aluminium that helps differentiate the Touring from the regular. The standard 911 GT3 comes with a black painted lower section. But the Touring model comes with a wholly painted front fascia. The car also gets dark-tinted lower front light modules and Satin Black in the optional exterior Touring Package.

On the inside, the Porsche 922 GT3 Touring comes with extended leather upholstery in black.

The steering wheel rim, gear/selector lever, centre console lid, door panel armrests, and door handles all come in black leather upholstery. The head restraints also get Porsche Crest embossing. The Touring Package also comes with plenty of other options on the inside.
