Technical Analysis On The 2014 Porsche 911 GT3: Video

Follow Viknesh

Regarded by many as the purest of the Porsche 911s, the GT3 is something of a sacred cow to many.

Here, we get a glimpse at the reason why.

When it comes to race cars you can drive on the street, few come close to matching the overall package of the Porsche 911 GT3.

The fifth generation of the car, which made its debut last week at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, is a completely new development in terms of engine, body, chassis, and of course, transmission.

The last change hasn’t settled well with all fans, though as the video explains, a move to Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch transmission makes perfect sense from a lap time perspective, and given that the GT3 is essentially a homologation car, bought and raced with class-specific modifications by myriad race teams, the move might make even more sense.

The rest of the car’s performance, meanwhile, speaks for itself. Peak output from its 3.8-liter flat-six engine stands at 475 horsepower, and is generated at a lofty 9,000 rpm. This will see the car accelerate from 0-60 in just 3.3 seconds, pass 124 mph in less than 12 seconds and reach a top speed of 195 mph.

Pricing starts at $130,400 plus $950 in destination fees.

  1. I am hoping Porsche will offer a manuel gear box for the 991 GT3. If not I would consider buying an older GT3. However, I bought a Merc G55 with auto since they do not offer a manuel so who knows...
