The Porsche 911 is one of the most anticipated and sought-after cars for racing enthusiasts and sports car fanatics worldwide. Now with its eighth-generation model running in the market for the past 2 years, its high time that Porsche unveils its latest model, the 911 Gt3, all set to be released in 2022.Reading Time: 2 minutes
Boasting of features such as the 4.0-litre flat-six, a seven-speed PKD dual-clutch and a manual gear option for accelerated speeds, let us dive in on some of the cool features this car has to offer:
A Race Car Engine
According to Porsche, the 911 GT3 engine is virtually similar to all of Porsches signature flagship cars but with revised pistons. The 4.0-litre flat-six offers 502 hp with a powerful revolution speed of 9000 RPM. The engine also has a dry-sump lubrication system that ensures maximum lubrication of the engine at slumps and corners throughout the race track. The powerful PKD clutch system can take the 911 GT3 at speeds of 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, perfect for the racecourse, you might say.
Bespoke Race Car Derived Suspension
As of now, the suspension system is unique to any other system ever used in previous 911 cars. Porsche claims that the double-wishbone suspension system aims to provide more stability and control to the drivers on nooks and edges encountered at the race track, especially on rougher surfaces.
Aerodynamic Settings not intended for Street use
When it comes to race car track usage, the Porsche 911 GT3 has some of the best aerodynamic features to offer that promise driver control and stability even at lightning speeds. The GT3 comes with an adjustable front spoiler lip and diffuser. The swan neck shaped rear wing is also adjustable for both race track and street modes, which significantly increases the downforce to at least 3-fold, creating blazing speeds while providing the best race car experience to its driver.
Street Legal Track Tires
One look close up, and the new 911 GT3 seems to be heavily inspired by the previous GT3 RS models but with reinforcements. The tires aren’t an exception as the new Porsche has the same Pilot sport Cup 2 RS spec tires. In the unique model, they are sized as 255/35 R20 on the front and 315/30 R19 on the rear, capable of handling any kinds of speeds you put them through.
High-level Light Weighting
Yes, light-weighting is officially a term now. You can’t expect enormous speeds from a race car unless the chassis and the suspension shed significant amounts of weight. The GT3 tires are bigger and stronger than before but are surprisingly 3.5 lbs. lighter. On the other hand, the hood, the spoiler and the adjustable rear wing are made of reinforced carbon plastic fibre.
Overall, the New Porsche 911 GT3 is a reinforced version of its more successful previous models. Expectations soar to an all-time high, as enthusiasts have their eyes set on the innovations and features this new car is yet to bring.
