Porsche 911 GT3 (type 997)

The model improvements of the 911 GT3 of the 997 generation appeared in 2006. Compared to its predecessors, many pieces of equipment were included as standard, such as the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sports chassis. The GT3 was also available with a Clubsport Package for use in motorsport.

From MY 2009, the revised high-performance naturally aspirated engine delivered 320 kW (435 PS) instead of the previous 305 kW (415 PS).
