Porsche takes its track learnings and puts it directly onto the 911 sportscar with the global reveal of the newest 911 GT3.

The 911 GT3 packs Porsche’s racing technology such as the double wishbone front suspension, swan neck rear wing and diffuser from the 911 RSR, and combines it with a normally-aspirated 510 horsepower, 4.0-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine practically unchanged from the 911 GT3 Cup car to create a high precision machine that’s perfect for the circuit, yet superb for everyday use.

With a top speed of 320 km/h (318 km/h with the dual clutch PDK) it’s even faster than the previous 911 GT3 RS. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.

Moreover, the sophisticated aerodynamics enable the GT3 to generate more downforce without noticeably affecting drag. In the “performance” position, the manually set wing and diffuser elements significantly increase the aerodynamic pressure for high cornering speeds. Thus, during its final testing, it lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife, traditionally the ultimate proving ground for all sports cars developed by Porsche, over 17 seconds quicker than its predecessor.

Despite a wider body, larger wheels and additional features, the weight of the new GT3 is on a par with its predecessor. With manual gearbox it weighs 1,418 kilograms, with the PDK 1,435 kilograms. The front hood is made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), with other weight saving measures coming from the lightweight glass windows, optimized brake discs, and forged alloy wheels. The lightweight sports exhaust system alone reduces the weight by no less than ten kilograms. For those who want to go on a more extreme level, the roof can be optioned to be made of exposed carbon fiber.

The cockpit is in line with the current model generation. A new feature is the track screen: at the touch of a button, it reduces the digital displays to the left and right of the central rev counter, which reaches up to 10,000 revs, to information such as tire pressure indicator, oil pressure, oil temperature, fuel tank level and water temperature, which are essential when driving on the circuit. It also includes a visual shift assistant with colored bars to the left and right of the rev counter and a shift light derived from motorsports.

Hurray for the naturally aspirated high revving formula in this day and age of hybrids, EVs and turbos! 

And the manual option.
