Like most major multi-million dollar companies do every year, Porsche has released a fancy new Super Bowl commercial. The piece titled “The Heist” is a pretty fun ad featuring members of the Porsche Museum security team engaging in some Fast & Furious car chase scenes attempting to catch a thief. There’s also a neat twist at the end. Here’s the official synopsis.
“Starring the all new Taycan, The Heist takes you on a heart-pounding chase with an all-star cast of cars from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany – home to the global headquarters of Porsche – and through the backdrop of beautiful German locations like Heidelberg, Heppenheim and the Black Forest.”
“Alongside the storied 917K, Carrera GT, 918 Spyder, 911 RSR, 718 Cayman GT4, 911 Carrera 4S, 930 Turbo, and 911 GT2 RS, the story gives a visual history of iconic Porsche cars that share a common sports car soul – now including the all new fully-electric Taycan.”
It’s a cute piece of advertising. However, eagle-eyed Porsche fans are more interested in what pops up on the screen at the 00:44 second mark. As the security detail argue over who gets to drive the most coveted models, we see a blue 911 hoisted up in the background. Porsche experts think the taillights, chunky wing, and the side profile indicate it’s the 2021 911 GT3. For those unaware, that model hasn’t officially been announced yet.
What to Expect From the 911 GT3
The brief Easter egg from Porsche might mean they are ready to introduce the new 911 GT3 to the public. Assuming they follow traditional releases, it could be available in both coupe and convertible models. Rumors are that the track-focused car will have a 4.0 liter engine with a flat-six. It could boast up to 550 horsepower.
We’ll have to wait for an official announcement from Porsche to be sure. In the meantime, you can check out the extended version of the commercial below. Watch closely at the 44 and 49 second marks for a (potential) glimpse at the new 911 GT3.
