Next-Gen Porsche 911 GT3 to Use Michelin Tires
The seventh generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 will be fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R Connect tires will be available as an option for the car.
"Developed for drivers who want the ultimate performance during days on track, the Pilot Sport Cup 2 R Connect tires combine the casing design based on that of the Pilot Sport Cup 2 with motorsport rubber compounds, plus they are ready to be fitted with Michelin Track Connect sensors that enable them to be used with the MichelinTrack Connect smartphone application," say Michelin officials.
"This application allows drivers to constantly monitor tire pressures in real time, so that they can be adjusted to achieve optimum performance when circuit driving."
Michelin says the OE Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires "have been designed specifically for the new 911 GT3 and these tires feature newly developed dual rubber compounds front and rear.
"The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires feature technologies developed at the highest levels of global motorsport and following Michelin’s ‘track to street’ philosophy, these technologies are now available to road drivers – enabling them to benefit from the highest levels of durability, grip, handling and safety during everyday road use, as well as in very demanding conditions on the racetrack."
