Porsche Highlights GT3 Tech

Video

The GT3 may be the most hard-core of the new 911s to date, but that doesn't mean it's down to basics.

With its engine mass located all the way in the back, the Porsche 911 is one of the most nimble cars on the road or track. But to create the latest GT3, Porsche developed a raft of new technologies that make the whole package handle that much better. Chief among them is the new four-wheel steering system that varies according to speed: at low speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction from the front to minimize the turning circle. But at higher speeds, they all turn in the same direction to assist with lane changes.

Coupled with active engine mounts and torque vectoring, the rear-wheel steering system helps the 475-horsepower GT3 out-maneuver cars that cost significantly more and pack more power. Check out the highlights in the video below.
