Porsche Completely Redevelops Fifth-generation 911 GT3 Sports Car

For the first time, Porsche is employing active rear wheel steering in the 911 GT3 to achieve even higher steering precision and improved lateral dynamics.
For the first time, Porsche is employing active rear wheel steering in the 911 GT3 to achieve even higher steering precision and improved lateral dynamics.

The fifth generation of the 911 GT3 occupies the top position among Porsche sports cars with naturally-aspirated engines. Following the total production of 14,145 GT3 cars since 1999, the fifth generation of the 911 GT3 is a new car from the ground up. Both engine and transmission, as well as body and chassis, are entirely new, and extend the 911 GT3 concept with an impressive performance made possible with new active rear-wheel steering, as well as other features. This ensures that all successful characteristics of this track-developed sports car are preserved, with improved dynamic capability while preserving day-to-day drivability and most importantly, a highly emotional fun factor.

The powertrain of the new 911 GT3 is composed of a 3.8-liter boxer engine yielding 475 hp featuring a 9,000 rpm redline and a specially developed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) which drives the rear wheels. The six-cylinder engine is based on the 911 Carrera S engine, but shares only a few common parts. All other components, particularly the crank-shaft and valve train, were specially adapted or developed for the GT3. For example, Porsche is once again using titanium connecting rods and forged pistons.

The 2014 911 GT3 is based on the light yet stiff body of the current generation 911 Carrera, which employs a hybrid steel and aluminum construction; however, it comes with unique front and rear parts specific to the GT3.

At full acceleration from standstill, the 60 mph mark is reached after just 3.3 seconds, and 124 mph is reached in less than twelve seconds. The top speed is 195 mph. The lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife is even more impressive: the new 911 GT3 is capable of lapping this track, commonly regarded as the most difficult in the world, in less than 7:30 minutes.

Unique Appearance, Optional Full-LED Headlights

The wide body, the special front and rear design with a large wing, and the large wheels make the new Porsche 911 GT3 unmistakable at first glance. In addition, the new high-performance sports car is now also available optionally with a new generation of headlights that exclusively consist of LED light sources, giving the coupé a special appearance.

The body of the new 911 GT3 is a development based on the latest 911 Carrera. The extensive use of aluminum in the front and rear body, as well as the floor assembly, reduces the shell weight by around 13 percent over the previous model. Roof and wings, rear boot lid and doors are also made of aluminum alloy. In addition, the torsional rigidity was increased by about 25 percent.

The front apron was newly designed for the new 911 GT3. In addition to the integration of the new front lights, the larger holes improve air supply to the radiator compared to the 911 Carrera. The conspicuous element of the particularly pronounced spoiler lip is the laterally raised spoiler contour.

The distinctive identifying feature of the rear of the new 911 GT3 is its fixed wing. The completely newly developed decklid is made of a composite material consisting of glass and carbon fiber. Spoiler supports, the large ram-air intake for the air supply of the engine, and the spoiler lip are all integral components of the design. The rear spoiler is mounted on supports, which remains individually adjustable for use on the track. Further characteristic features of the 911 GT3 rear are the exhaust vents in the rear bodywork, with two on the side and one under the rear boot lid.
