iRacing’s digital Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is now available to sim racers the world over. Raced in more than 20 race series around the world, including the Porsche GT3 Cup in the United States and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in support of the FIA Formula One World Championship, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the world’s most produced and most used GT race car. As such the Porsche GT3 Cup has been the vehicle that launched the professional careers of sports car champions like Sven Müller, Philipp Eng, Richard Westbrook, René Rast, Nicki Thiim, Earl Bamber and Jörg Bergmeister.
The rear-engined Porsche 911 GT3 Cup features a 4 liter, flat six cylinder engine, together with a six speed semi-automatic transmission, rack and pinion steering and aluminum piston brakes on all four corners. Weighing-in at 2878 lb (1305 kg) and with its rear engine producing 485 hp, the Porsche 911 GT3 figures to be a potent and popular addition to an iRacing lineup that includes more than 50 stock, open wheel and sports cars along with laser-scanned versions of more than 70 of the world’s legendary speedways and road courses.
