Porsche has taken the new 911 GT3 off the leash. The seventh edition of this high-performance sports car was also developed in close collaboration with Porsche Motorsport. It transfers pure racing technology into a production model even more consistently than ever before: the double wishbone front axle layout and sophisticated aerodynamics with swan neck rear wing and striking diffuser originate from the successful GT race car 911 RSR and the 375 kW (510 PS) four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine is based on the drivetrain of the 911 GT3 R. The acoustically impressive, high-revving engine is also used practically unchanged in the new 911 GT3 Cup. The distinctive strength of the Porsche 911 GT3 lies in the sum of its characteristics. With a top speed of 320 km/h (318 km/h with PDK) it is even faster than the previous 911 GT3 RS. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. Porsche also offers the new model with a six-speed manual transmission for a particularly puristic driving experience. During final testing, it lapped the Nuerburgring-Nordschleife, traditionally the ultimate proving ground for all sports cars developed by Porsche, over 17 seconds quicker than its predecessor. The result is a brilliant driving machine: efficient and emotional, precise and high-performance – perfect for the circuit and superb for everyday use.
Its racing genes are expressed in practically all the details of the new Porsche 911 GT3. 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 tyre 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 coloured bars to the left and right of the rev counter and a shift light derived from Motorsport. Despite a wider body, larger wheels and additional technical features, the weight of the new GT3 is on a par with its predecessor. With manual gearbox it weighs 1.418 kilograms, with PDK 1.435 kilograms. The front bonnet made of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), lightweight glass windows, optimised brake discs and forged light-alloy wheels ensure weight discipline, as does the cover for the rear seat compartment. The lightweight sports exhaust system reduces the weight by no less than ten kilograms. With infinitely electrically adjustable exhaust flaps, it harmonises a highly emotional sound experience with the Euro 6d ISC FCM (EU6 AP) emissions standard. The combined consumption of the 911 GT3 is 13.3 litres/100 km (PDK 12.4).
As exclusive as the Porsche 911 GT3 itself is the individual chronograph that Porsche Design offers exclusively to customers of the high-performance sports car. Like its motorised role model, it boasts a dynamic design, consistent performance and high-quality workmanship. Its housing reflects its Motorsport genes. Just like the connecting rods of the GT3 engine, it consists of robust, lightweight titanium. The timepiece is powered by an individual winding rotor reminiscent of the wheels of the 911 GT3. The coloured ring of the dial can be customised in the paint colours of the 911 GT3. Especially for the Porsche GT models, customers are increasingly requesting customised equipment. For this reason, the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur range is also available for the new 911 GT3 and is supplemented by GT 3-specific options such as a lightweight roof made of exposed carbon fibre. Other highlights include exterior mirror tops made of carbon, darkened LED matrix main headlights and matching Exclusive design rear lights with an arc of light with no red components. Guards Red or Shark Blue painted wheel rims enhance the black alloy wheels. In the interior, equipment details such as the dials for the rev counter and Sport Chrono stopwatch, seatbelts and trim strips set elegant accents in the body colour or other desired colour.
In addition to a six-speed GT manual transmission with auto-blip function, a seven-speed Sport PDK transmission is also available. This allows gear changes within milliseconds without interrupting drive to the wheels. It therefore provides the basis for breathtaking acceleration: the new Porsche 911 GT3 catapults from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, reaching 200 km/h in 10.8 seconds. Porsche also offers the seventh edition of the 911 GT3 exclusively with rear-wheel drive. The 4.0-litre, 375 kW (510 PS), high-revving GT boxer engine lends the new Porsche 911 GT3 a thoroughbred temperament and accentuates this with an emotive sound. It delivers 10 PS more than the previous model and, like its predecessor, has a maximum engine speed of 9,000 rpm The maximum torque of the naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine has increased from 460 to 470 Nm. As in motorsport versions, the intake system features six individual throttle valves. Despite having two gasoline particulate filters, the lightweight sports exhaust system weighs less than the one fitted to the previous 911 GT3.
With a diameter of 408 millimetres instead of 380 mm, the lightweight brake discs on the front axle are considerably larger than on the previous 911 GT3. In addition to high-performance sports tyres, road-approved race track tyres are also now available as an option for the first time. The front-axle lift system features a Smart Lift memory function. It is the first time that the intensively redeveloped double-wishbone front axle, already known from the successful Le Mans-winning 911 RSR, has been used in a series-production Porsche model. Among other things, this offers higher camber stiffness and eliminates disturbing lateral forces acting on the shock absorbers. The result is extraordinarily agile turn-in behaviour and a high level of driveability at the limit of grip. The tried-and-tested five-link rear axle based on the ‘LSA’ concept (lightweight, stable, agile) guides the wheels with even greater precision thanks to additional ball joints for the lower wishbones, which are subject to particularly high stress. Special shock absorbers combine greater driving comfort with improved race track performance. Rear-axle steering is also equipped as standard: it turns the rear wheels by up to two degrees in the direction of or contrary to the steering direction of the front axle, depending on the driving speed.
