Porsche revealed this week in Geneva the 2014 911 GT3 which borrows a lot of styling cues from the standard 911 but brings a more aggressive front fascia with optional LED headlights and a different spoiler. The more potent GT3 version has gained extended side skirts, widened rear fenders, as well as a fixed rear wing. Porsche’s engineers have also installed 20-inch forged rims with central locking hubs, plus a dual exhaust system mounted in the center and a revised rear bumper. Inside it gains an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, leather/Alcantara seats and red contrasting stitching.
The heart and soul of the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 is a 6-cylinder, 3.8-liter engine featuring direct injection, variable valve timing, forged pistons and titanium connecting rods. The mill is capable of putting out 475 HP and a maximum torque of 438 Nm (324 lb-ft). It’s connected to a dual-clutch, 7-speed gearbox transferring the power to the rear wheels with the help of a locking differential.
The 911 GT3 needs 3.5 seconds from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) and will keep on accelerating until it reaches 195 mph (315 km/h). According to Porsche, the car will complete a lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than 7:30.
Expected to go on sale in Germany this August, the Porsche 911 GT3 has a starting price of 137,303 euros.
