Porsche 911 GT3

Industry News / Comments

Originally introduced in 1999, the GT3 is a high-performance version of the Porsche 911. The latest model was introduced in 2006 and features a new 3.8 liter flat-6 with 435 horsepower. It goes from zero to 60 in only 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 193 mph. The concept of the GT3 is to make it a lightweight track version of the regular 911. It also has no direct-injection and uses a standard six-speed manual gearbox, instead of the PDK.

Designed to be for the track enthusiast, the GT3 also offers dynamic engine mounts and a hydraulically lifting front axle to compensate for the low ground clearance. With a base price starting at $112,200, the GT3 certainly doesn't come cheap, but that's the price to pay when you're driving a machine that take on other supercars such as the Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborghini Gallardo.
