  10. 10. 2010 Porsche GT3 Cup Cars American Spirit Racing campaigns new 2010 Porsche GT3 Cup cars in the IMSA American Le Mans Series. The all new 2010 GT3 Cup Car features numerous technological advancements beyond previous year models.
  11. 11. Porsche 997 GT3 Cup Racecars The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 997) racecars were introduced for the 2006 Carrera Cup. The previous model (Type 996) was used in the Carrera Cup GB since the championship was introduced in 2003. The combination of evocative sports coupe styling and characteristic rear-engine design makes the Porsche 911 a favorite for drivers seeking a precisely engineered, powerful race car, and one that is immediately recognizable by spectators and sponsors alike. The Engine The 2010 engine is 3.8 liter version of the well-known six-cylinder boxer that has been the base for successful motorsport with near-standard vehicles for the last six years. It is an extremely free-revving unit that develops 450 HP at 7500 rpm. An air-collector located under the rear wing uses pressure built up there to supply extra intake air to the engine at high speeds, so that it reaches its maximum power output quicker and easier. Bodywork High downforce, low weight and the best possible cooling had priority when the classical body silhouette of the 911 was modified for racing. The 2010 GT3 Cup car is wider, stronger and faster than its predecessors. The adjustable rear wing of the new GT3 Cup gives a clear indication of the purpose of this vehicle. The carbon fiber wing is 2.34 inches wider and 1.37 inches higher than the wing of the 2009 911 GT3 Cup model. It increases downforce at the rear significantly. An intake on the carbon fiber rear lid directs air through a filter directly to the throttle.
  12. 12. Porsche 997 GT3 Cup Racecars (cont.) The cockpit and dashboard feature a new layout with a central information display which informs the driver about all important functions. The light and ignition switches as well as the data recording control are positioned on the centre console with the starter button left of the steering wheel. The fuse-box can now be found in the place of the glove-box instead in the legroom area of the driver's side. Sequential 6-speed gearbox The sequential six-speed dog-type box of the latest 911 GT3 Cup features a power shift system with ignition cut for very quick up shifting at full throttle. Very close ratios ensure that the engine is used in its optimum rev range with the transmission being considerably shorter than in the road-going 911 GT3 RS. Top speed is reached at approx. 169 mph. Thanks to tailor-made gears, a single mass flywheel and the use of a 5.5 inch triple-disc sintered metal clutch, the rotating masses of the transmission are reduced. An oil-water- heat exchanger provides the reliable cooling of the system.
