The “Gadar” movie superstar, Sunny Deol, is one of the very few true-blooded automotive enthusiasts from Bollywood. The actor has, over the years, expressed his love for the German supercar and luxury car manufacturer, Porsche, in interviews. He owns several different models from the brand, including a few 911 supercars. Most recently, earlier this year, he took delivery of a brand new 992 911 GT3 Touring, and a picture of it with his father, Dharmendra, was shared online. After that, it was not seen for a long time until very recently. Just a few days ago, a few pictures of Sunny Deol’s 911 GT3 have now surfaced online.
Sunny Deol’s Porsche 911 GT3 Touring
The pictures of Sunny Deol’s Porsche 911 GT3 Touring have been shared on Facebook by Car Crazy India on their page. The caption of the post stated, “@iamsunnydeol and his passion for Porsches, the latest in his garage is this 992 GT3 Touring. Having owned several 911s in the past, he had acquired the Touring a couple of months back. It finally got spotted today while getting refueled.” In the pictures, a front and a rear shot of the actor’s 911 GT3 were seen.
From the pictures, we can note that Sunny Deol was not behind the steering wheel of this car while it was refueling. Most likely, the person driving the supercar was his staff member, and he was getting it refueled for the actor to take on a joyride. At the moment, we have seen Sunny Deol only once with his supercar, and that picture was from the day of the delivery. In the picture, the actor was seen standing next to the 911 GT3 Touring with his father Dharmendra on the other side. It was noted that the actor has gone with a very classy color of Gentian Blue with black alloy wheels and red calipers.
Porsche 992 911 GT3 Touring
For those who are unaware of the Porsche 911 GT3 supercar, it is regarded as one of the most precisely handling supercars, known for its ability to destroy lap times across various race tracks. Sunny Deol, however, has gone with a slightly more toned-down version of the extreme GT3, and it is the Touring version. This version of the GT3 has been designed with comfort in mind. The main highlights of the GT3 Touring are the rear wing delete and the presence of a six-speed gated manual transmission.
Under the hood, or shall we say the rear decklid (the engine is on the back of a 911), the 992 GT3 Touring boasts a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine. This engine is capable of delivering an impressive 502 horsepower and 470 Nm of torque. This powerplant propels the car from 0 to 100 kmph in a blistering 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of around 317 kmph. As mentioned, the GT3 misses out on the massive wing seen in the standard GT3 and offers a more understated appearance for weekend driving on twisty canyon roads.
Sunny Deol’s other cars
Apart from the latest 992 911 GT3, the actor also owns a few other 911s. According to reports, Sunny Deol also owns a 993-generation Porsche 911 and a classic 964 Porsche. It has been reported that he keeps these cars at his residence in the United Kingdom and drives them when he visits his family over there. The actor also owns a Land Rover Defender luxury SUV and a Jeep Meridian SUV as well.
