The Porsche 911 is one of the most successful sports cars ever constructed and, for over 50 years, is the industry’s standard when it comes to fast automobiles. However, the 911 saga is not just about lap times or championship wins. It is a story about relentless improvement and constant evolution against all odds. To be honest, from an engineering standpoint, having an engine in the rear of the vehicle and less than ideal weight distribution is a recipe for disaster. But somehow, Porsche engineers made it work. And it works incredibly well, as you will see.

The 911 range has numerous models, but none is more desirable than GT3. Designed as a direct derivate of Porsche’s race cars, the GT3 has very specific technology, engine, performance, and feel. To start, let’s look at its engine. The 4.0-liter, naturally-aspirated flat-six is not sheered with any other model in the lineup. It is high revving piece of art that delivers 503 hp and 347 lb-ft and can rev over 8,500 rpm.
The numbers are equally impressive, and the newest GT3 can sprint to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and top 198 mph. Since this is the purist’s car, Porsche decided to offer it with a 6-speed manual as well as with a 7-speed PDK automatic, which is one of the best in business. Furthermore, GT3 comes with a particular body package, aerodynamic enhancements, different wheels, a spoiler, more powerful brakes, lightweight seats, and roll-cage. All of that makes driving GT3 a unique and mind-altering experience which starts with starting the thoroughbred engine and taking the first curve at speeds you never thought were possible.
