Idea 911 GT3

Idea

The limit is apparently the most exhilarating place to be these days. The final square centimeters have yet to be explored here. This may be where others turn back but, for us, it is only just the beginning – the start of a journey towards new sporty destinations. Indeed, two hundredths of a second are worlds apart. So let’s get going. In the new 911 GT3.

The first item on our journey checklist is an engine that delivers greater power, drives faster and maintains composure even in the red zone. The innovative high-revving flat-six engine of the new 911 GT3 peaks at 9,000 rpm and exploits its 3.8-liter capacity to generate a power output of 475 hp.

A glance at the stopwatch reveals 3.3 seconds from 0 to 60 mph. This makes the new 911 GT3 an even faster sprinter than its predecessor – by point seven of a second to be precise. In motorsport, that’s half an eternity. Top speed isn’t reached until 195 mph.

While speed can propel you to the limit, it isn’t enough to keep you there. There has to be plenty of potential kept in reserve for every corner. Direct with no detour. Safe with no hesitation.

The core competencies of Porsche were exactly what we needed, as well as the imaginativeness of our engineers. The result is a chassis that has been adapted specifically for the racetrack and, with rear-axle steering fitted as standard, delivers increased agility even on everyday journeys.

For the first time, 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) is fitted as standard, with short ratios designed exclusively for the 911 GT3. The shift throws of the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel are even shorter and gear changes are even more dynamic so as to provide even better acceleration.

The rear of the new 911 GT3 is 1.7 inches wider than that of the previous model. In addition, the track at the rear axle has been widened by 1.2 inches, which improves lateral dynamics. The addition of 3.9 inches to the wheelbase has significantly increased driving stability. Fitted as standard, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) helps to ensure even greater stability when cornering, while rear-axle steering provides extraordinary agility and more dynamic overtaking manoeuvres on the racetrack.

All in all, the new 911 GT3 is a precision instrument, giving you everything you could need to push your own boundaries. Indeed, part of the brief for our engineers was to build a manageable sports car that feels at home on the racetrack, yet can be taken to brand new sporty destinations by drivers who aren’t able to tackle the Northern Loop of the Nürburgring day in day out.

The new 911 GT3 preserves tradition for the future – a principle that the 911 has embodied for 50 years. It aims to push the boundaries of what is possible, on each new day.
