Fuel economy and recycling 911 GT3

Porsche 911 GT3 - Fuel economy and recycling

Fuel economy and recycling

Intelligent lightweight construction has been part of Porsche DNA since 1948 – for both technological and ecological reasons. And, of course, with competitive advantages in mind. In motorsport, weight is increasingly the number one factor of success. Lightweight construction is therefore the basis for low consumption values combined with outstanding performance.

On the technical side, various components are made with a high proportion of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steel. The materials used have been selected for their ability to withstand load, yet they are considerably lighter overall than conventional steel.

On the ecological side, all materials used are meticulously selected. Each lightweight material is easily recyclable and all plastic components are labelled to facilitate separation for recycling. The reduction in the number of plastic variants helps to ensure more efficient recycling. Recycled plastics are used where they meet our exacting technical requirements.

In short, the new 911 GT3 is around 95% recoverable. In addition, Porsche uses a high proportion of environmentally friendly water-based paints. For us, environmental protection does not begin at the end of a vehicle’s life. It starts at the planning and development stage.
