The new-gen 911 GT3 high-performance coupe has been launched officially by Porsche. It is a part of the 992 Series and is the first GT model to be based on the new-generation 911. It’s the seventh-gen 911 GT3 which has been made in collaboration with Porsche Motorsport. The model now is wider with larger wheels but it weighs 1435 kg just like its predecessor. This is mainly due to the lightweight components made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), lightweight glass windows, light-alloy wheels and a sports exhaust system.
Porsche’s new 911 GT3 is designed using its racing technology, like the double-wishbone front axle layout, the aerodynamic swan-neck rear wing and a striking diffuser which originates from the successful GT race car 911 RSR. The 911 GT3 is powered by a 4.0-litre six-cylinder boxer engine which is based on the drivetrain of the 911 GT3 R, making about 503 bhp. Either a six-speed manual transmission or the company tried and tested Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) automatic transmission is equipped making it quicker than its predecessor-as claimed by the company. This new model takes just 3.4s to accelerate from 0-100 kmph before it hits 318 kmph top-speed.
The wheel rims of Porsche can be even painted red or shark blue to enhance the appearance of the black alloy wheels. It also has matching designed rear lights along with an exposed carbon fibre roof, exterior mirror tops and LED matrix main headlight.
It features a sporty all-black cabin highlighted by a new track screen. This is essential to reduce the digital displays to the left and right of the rev counter for information needed for track driving like tyre and oil pressure, fuel level and water temperature. It also has a coloured bar of visual shift assistant to the left and right of the rev counter and a shift light derived from Motorsport. The model’s signature timepiece is powered by an individual winding rotor reminiscent of the 911 GT3 wheels. The exterior paint of the owner’s car can be used for customizing the coloured dial ring of the car.
