Latest Porsche 911 GT3 promises 500 hp
Porsche’s latest 911 GT3 is good for the road and track with 500 hp and a 0-100 km/h time of 3.4 seconds.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 delivers motorsport-like performance, a systematic lightweight construction and an unfiltered driving experience.
The 911 GT3 is available to order now and are scheduled to arrive at dealerships in Canada in the third quarter of 2017. The pricing starts at $163,300.
In the new generation of the radical 911, the connection between everyday driving and the racetrack is even more intense.
At the heart of the latest enhancement beats a 4.0-litre flat engine. The extremely high-revving naturally aspirated 500 hp engine remains virtually unchanged from the thoroughbred 911 GT3 Cup racing car.
The redesigned chassis with rear-axle steering and the systematic lightweight construction are specifically tuned for superior driving dynamics.
Developed on the same test track and manufactured on the same production line as the racing cars, Porsche’s motorsport technology has once again been incorporated into a road- approved sports car.

The majority of Porsche GT drivers also like to take their sports cars for a spin on the racetrack, which is where the new 911 GT3 really comes into its own thanks to its weight-to-power ratio of 2.86 kg/hp.
With a seven-speed double-clutch transmission (PDK) as standard, which has been specifically tuned for use in the GT, the two-seater weighs in at 1,430 kg with a full fuel tank and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
It boasts a top speed of 318 km/h. Porsche also offers the 911 GT3 with a six-speed sports manual gearbox.
This allows the high-performance 911 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h.
