Porsche will reveal the new 911 GT3 soon


Last year, Porsche specialists were very active with the presentation of the all-new 911 Coupe and Convertible in Carrera and Carrera S trims. These models are actually the just the beginning of a new family of 911 derivatives and new special edition versions. In the future, the carmaker plans to be just as active as it is now.



One of the expected models is the new 911 GT3. The model was spied during some tests in Germany, on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. A lot of fans think the GT3 is an amazing car as it is more powerful, but in the same time lighter than others. In the end, it is more suited for the track than the regular variants of the 911 series. Under the hood it will not have the 4.0-liter engine that powers the current model, but it will receive power from the 3.8-liter unit, a high revving and normally aspirated flat six, that has been modified by the division of Porsche Motorsport. This way, it is capable of producing somewhere between 450 and 500 horsepower. When it comes to the transmission, nothing is for sure. It might keep the same 6-speed manual one, or replace it with a 7-speed stick shift. Different sources even suggest a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic gearbox. Bottom line is that the next Porsche 911 GT3 will be available with rear-wheel drive only.



The weight was saved from the chassis and the body of the 911, but it seems that the new GT3 will also give up some of the luxury features to obtain an even lighter kerbweight. For the exterior, the specialists provided a double-edge rear wing, larger, but lighter alloy wheels covered in more powerful tires, a new redesigned front bumper with a splitter, central exhaust outlets and also side skirts. The new Porsche 911 GT3 will also be available with bespoke interior trim. The ones interested should know the car will be available for purchase starting the middle of next year. carscoop.blogspot
