Have Porsche gone soft with the 911 GT3 Touring?

Porsche has revealed the GT3 Touring at the Frankfurt Motor Show that it's touting as 'the purist's 911' (whatever that means). It sits alongside the regular GT3 and GT2 RS at the track-focused brow of the hill of the 911 range However, the GT3 Touring is a toned down, more basic version of the latest 991.2-generation 911 GT3.

Under that more subtle engine cover (the rear wing has gone) is the same 493bhp 4.0-litre flat-six as the regular GT3. But like the 911R, the Touring will only be available with a six-speed manual gearbox, with no dual-clutch automatic PDK option.  0-62 in 3.9 seconds, if you can shift quick enough, which we know you can, Top speed of 196mph.
