Porsche has finally taken the wraps off the new 992 911 GT3. The new Porsche 911 GT3 is developed in collaboration with Porsche Motorsport, and the car gives a taste of motorsports to everyday drivers! The car also gets the high-revving naturally aspirated engine.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 draws power from a 4-litre naturally aspirated, four-cylinder boxer engine producing 503bhp and 470Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Porsche also offers a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Other highlights of the Porsche 911 GT3 include an adjustable front diffuser, larger rear wing and one centre locking nut for the wheel, similar to a race car. The double-wishbone front suspension is adapted from the 911 RSR race car, and it should improve the handling of the car.
The new 911 GT3 is lighter when compared to previous iterations, thanks to the carbon-fibre bonnet, roof, rear wing and ORVM caps. Porsche has shaved off the weight even more with lighter windows and 20kg lighter exhaust system, which sounds amazing!
The car is wider, longer and lower than the previous models. The result — lapped the Nurburgring-Nordschleife aka ‘Green Hell’ a massive 17 seconds faster than the previous model. To be precise, in 6 minutes, 59.927 seconds.
The interior of the new Porsche 911 GT3 is similar to the standard 911, except for few details. The rev counter goes all the way up to 10,000rpm, and the displays on either side of the dials come with a track screen function which can be activated by a press of a button. The displays provide vital information such as tyre pressure, fuel level, oil temperature and much more.
The Porsche 911 GT3 will go on sale in May 2021 in the global markets. Porsche is expected to offer the sporty 911 in India later this year.
