Surprise! The Edition 992 of the Porsche 911 GT3 R comes to iRacing in the third season of 2023

The new build and content coming in the 2023 iRacing third season is scheduled to be released on June 6th. We have a new hypercar with the Cadillac GTP and a new prototype with the Ligier LMP3. Why not add a new GT car? That’s exactly what iRacing is doing and announcing the release of the Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) for this week.

Some people might be wondering what the difference is between this car and the other half dozen Porsches on iRacing. At least I was one of those wondering, so I did a little research. The simple answer is that this is the latest race machine in the GT class, debuting earlier this year, so it’s a pretty big deal in GT3 circles.

This is the latest car in the 992 range, for which we already have a car in the 911 GT3 Cup. This is the 911 GT3 R. There is a difference. Yes, there is already a 911 GT3 R. That’s the older one, released on iRacing two years ago. If you need a better picture, here’s what’s already available on iRacing by next week:

  • Porsche 911 GT3 R (the old one will probably be replaced by this new one)
  • Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992)
  • Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (991, legacy content since the release of the 992 Cup)
  • Porsche 911 RSR
  • Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR
  • Porsche Mission R

The livery of the presented Porsche 911 GT3 R 992 comes from Pfaff Motorsports, a team participating in the IMSA competition.

The Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup uses the 992 Cup. This 992 GT3 R is the same car currently used in the ESL R1 on the racing platform and has also been available on Assetto Corsa Competizione since April 2023. Also, this car will be available at RaceRoom in July when the content of the Porsche Pack is released.

Season 3 2023 starts on June 6th and alongside the new cars you will also see Willow Springs and MotorLand Aragón as well as a Dirt Refresh and other updates yet to be announced.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
