We know that your time is precious. And every minute in the cockpit is valuable. So, we have once again intensified everything that makes a sports car: performance, tuning, aerodynamics.
Time flies. This is your time. Hop in.
Wheels and tires.
For the first time, the 911 GT3 has staggered wheels sizes: with 20-inch wheels on the front axle and 21-inch wheels on the rear axle. Wide wheels mean a large contact patch and, therefore, high dynamic performance.
The wheels are silver-colored as standard and made of forged alloy. The black central locking device with ‘GT3’ logo is typical of motorsport – and highly functional. Tire sizes: 255/35 ZR 20 on 9.5 J x 20 at the front, 315/30 ZR 21 on 12 J x 21 at the rear. Road-legal Ultra High Performance tires ensure the necessary grip¹. Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), fitted as standard, features a racetrack mode which accounts for the lower pressure of cold tires before an outing on the circuit.
¹ The lower tread depth leads to an increased risk of hydroplaning on wet roads.

A naturally aspirated engine, what else? With a full four liters of displacement and six cylinders. In a horizontally opposed layout. In the rear. Just as you would expect from a 911. Six individual throttle bodies ensure an even more direct engine responsiveness that is easier to control. With a high-revving concept that scratches the 9,000 mark. And with a maximum torque of 346 lb. ft. which has been increased by another 7 lb-ft compared with its predecessor. All this with a purebred sound that will blow you away in every direction.
On this technical basis, the engine of the new 911 GT3 draws a maximum power of 502 hp from exactly 3,996 cm³. With the standard 7-speed
The drive unit of the new 911 GT3 models was developed in the same place that we build our race cars: Flacht. It is modelled on the basic engine of the 911 GT3 Cup, and is particularly robust and high-performing. The oil supply principle, which uses a separate engine oil tank, and the concept of four valves per cylinder with cam followers and rigid valve control have been derived directly from motorsport.
The 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 with Touring Package use six individual valves instead of a central throttle valve. For optimum supply of air to each cylinder. This simultaneously improves the responsiveness, controllability and gas throughput – especially at high speeds. And, as a consequence, improves performance.
The more central position of the rear engine mounts is new. The resulting more streamlined tuning of the mounts reduces engine vibrations and also stabilizes the vehicle – especially during dynamic cornering with bumps.
In the new 911 GT3, the 7-speed PDK boasts an even sportier set-up. The shift throws on the gearshift paddles are crisp and short. Alternatively, you can also change gears directly with the PDK gear selector – in the new 911 GT3 it is based on a manual lever. No matter how you shift, with seven performance-oriented gears there's plenty of racing feel.
A new feature is gear selection during dynamic downshifting. If, for example, when braking before a corner, the driver pulls on the gearshift paddle before the correct engine speed is reached, the PDK 'remembers' this gear change and shifts back automatically as soon as the optimum engine speed is reached.
Optional in the 911 GT3 and standard in the 911 GT3 with Touring Package, it injects the pure and even more direct driving feeling back into the cockpit. With six performance oriented gears, extremely short shift throws and exceptionally precise, short gear changes. The focus is not on every tenth of a second, but on unconditional driving pleasure and unfiltered emotions. The manual gearbox also saves another 37 lb in weight.
Lightweight construction always goes into detail: every gram is filed down so as to fight for every weight saving. The proportion of lightweight components made of aluminum and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) has been increased once again, while maintaining the same stability. For even greater agility, typical of motorsport.
The front hood is made of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), previously a privilege of the 911 RS models. The rear wing is also made of Carbon Fiber, as is the roof on request.
The use of lightweight glass for the windshield, side windows and rear windshield is new on the 911 GT3 models. It is highly durable, scratch-resistant and particularly lightweight.
As a result, the new 911 GT3 achieves a power-to-weight ratio of just 6.3 lb/hp and a drag coefficient of 0.34. So you can set new records. Effortlessly. And, above all, lightly.
For the first time in a 911 GT3, a double wishbone front suspension has been installed. The system is derived directly from the 911 RSR – and brings you valuable seconds ahead:
The responsiveness of the front axle has been significantly improved once again through this axle principle – and the associated lower friction in the shock absorbers. In addition, the new axle geometry allows for a set-up that provides greater cornering stability and even more immediate steering response. For even faster cornering speeds.
On the rear axle, the proven multi-link axle in the LSA concept (lightweight, stable, agile) is used with an increased number of ball joints for even greater precision.
Ride height, camber and the stiffness of the anti-roll bars can be individually adjusted on both axles. Stiffer springs, together with the helper springs typical of motorsport, are used both front and rear. A new shock-absorber technology also allows more powerful driving characteristics, with simultaneously increased driving comfort.
Rear-axle steering with sporty set-up.
At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This increases agility, especially when cornering. At high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This increases driving stability, above all at high speeds or when overtaking on the race track.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM, –20mm).
This electronic adjustment of the shock absorber system actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. PASM has two settings: ‘Normal’, which is a blend of performance and comfort, and ‘Sport’ where the set-up is much firmer.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
PSM is an automatic control system for helping to maintain stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. The systems can be completely switched off in two stages. For intentionally sporty handling on the race track.
Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus).
In conjunction with the 7-speed PDK, the system operates with an electronically regulated and fully variable rear differential lock with fully variable torque distribution. For increased traction and improved lateral dynamics, as well as enhanced stability when cornering under load change conditions and when changing lanes.
‘Smart’ lift system.
Available as an option, the lift system raises the 911 GT3 at the front axle by 1.1 in. To increase ground clearance at speeds of up to approximately 31 mph. A new feature is the automatic lift function which is based on personally stored position data.
No time to lose – even when decelerating. A newly developed and particularly powerful brake system is the reliable basis for this. The standard cast-iron and aluminium composite brake discs now have a diameter of 408mm on the front axle – 28mm more than the predecessor – and 380mm on the rear axle. Thanks to the vacuum brake booster, which has also been re-engineered, the braking force can now be applied even more precisely and as required.
The red six-piston aluminium brake calipers on the front axle and the four-piston equivalents at the rear are designed as monobloc units. For greater inherent stability and faster response when applying and releasing the brake, even under extreme loads.
Six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – ensure extremely high brake forces which, crucially, are exceptionally consistent when decelerating. In addition, the safety when braking from high speed increases due to the high fade resistance of the PCCB.
Everything you love about
Porsche. But faster.
At the sporting limit, it is always about being direct. Especially on the racetrack but also with ergonomics in the cockpit. In this sense, the interior of the new 911 GT3 models is leading the way. It reflects on classic 911 virtues and extends them to new technological possibilities. The principle: analog fascination meets digital integration.
The GT3 Sport steering wheel with PDK gearshift paddles in Dark Silver enables short shift throws like in motorsport. The non-slip steering wheel rim in black Race-Tex sits comfortably in the hand, even during sporty driving. All materials are puristic and yet of high quality – in addition to the black Race-Tex, black leather and trim in Black with inlays in Anthracite Brushed Aluminum.
A new feature is the selectable track screen which displays the relevant driving data for the racetrack upon request, e.g. tire pressure, g-force, stopwatch, water temperature as well as oil temperature and oil pressure. So you have all information directly in front of you and can fully concentrate on the racetrack. In conjunction with the 6-speed GT Sport manual transmission (also with the PDK gear selector with the manual gate), the track screen also displays a shift assistant.
Cult: the central analog tachometer with illuminated ‘GT3’ logo, the heart of the interior both visually and technically. High-tech: the high-resolution 7-inch-WVGA TFT color displays on the left and right of the tachometer which show configurable vehicle information on virtual instruments.
The Sport Seats Plus with elevated side bolsters, electric seat height and backrest adjustment as well as the manual fore/aft adjustment are standard. The side bolsters are covered in leather, the seat centers in black Race-Tex, while the ‘GT3’ logo is embroidered on the headrests in Silver. The side bolsters on the cushion and backrest have a firm, sporty padding and offer excellent lateral support – even in the pelvis area. The backrest shell is finished in Dark Silver.
Adaptive Sport Seats Plus with 18-way electric adjustment of seat positions are available on request.
Full bucket seats made entirely of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) with carbon-weave finish and featuring integrated thorax airbag are available as an option. They offer particularly good lateral support at minimal weight. The fore/ aft adjustment is manual, the height adjustment is electric. The cover is made of black leather as standard, with a seat center in black perforated Race-Tex, lined in a contrasting color, with the ‘GT3’ logo embroidered in Silver on the headrests. Optional Shark Blue interior stitching shown here.
