Hot of the press from testing at Sebring today, high quality images of the brand new Porsche 991 GTE from Nick Busato.
The car, which will make its debut in the 2013 season with a full World Endurance Championship GTE Pro campaign in the hands of a fully fledged works team, is a totally fresh design. Based on the new shape ’991′ 911, it is running at Sebring as part of a private test. It is believed that the car will not, however, race at Sebring’s 12 hour enduro.
Patrick Pilet has been behind the wheel doing the testing duties for Porsche, so far.
We’ll be adding more photos throughout the day as we receive them from Nick, who is at the track all day.
The test also sees the first proper public test of the Z4 GTE from BMW. ESM will run their new HPD, Level 5 are expected to be in attendance and Muscle Milk return after their appearance at the official test. Dyson Racing will turn laps, as will a number of GTC class cars including (our cover star, Patrick) Dempsey Del Piero’s new cars.
