A Porsche is a Porsche, is a high-tech marvel.
Both Project 1 racing series, Porsche Carrera Cup Germany and Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, run with the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Type 991.
Porsche manufactures more of these models than any other and most of them see use in the motorsport events mentioned previously. Buyers purchasing the model automatically agree to participate in one of the series as a driver. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup’s body – like the standard vehicles – rolls off the production line in Stuttgart. However, from there it ships immediately to Porsche Motorsport in Weissach. At Weissach, every Cup auto is carefully fitted with parts specifically designed and crafted for motorsport before its tyres touch the track.
Although the cars are equipped with state-of-the-art materials and components, parts, such as brakes and tyres, wear quickly, depending on the driver and track. As a rule, brake pad sets require replacement after three weekends of racing. Tyres wear even more quickly. Common is four sets of tyres for a weekend of racing.
