Further expanding the 911 line-up in India, Porsche today launched the all-new Porsche 911 GT3 sports car in the country priced at Rs.2.31 crore. Powering the new Porsche 911 GT3 is a 4-litre six-cylinder boxer engine which has been tuned to churn out 493 bhp of power and develop 540 Nm of peak torque. Transmission wise, you have the option of choosing either the 7-speed PDK automatic transmission or the more exciting 6-speed manual gearbox.
With a near power-to-weight ratio, the 911 GT3 can hit 0-100 kmph in 3.4 seconds on the automatic with a top speed of 318 kmph. The 911 GT3 manual, on other hand, takes 0.5 seconds more to do the 0-100 kmph sprint, but has a higher top speed of 320 kmph.
Visually, the GT3 has the DNA of the 911 all around, with the imposing stance, sharp sloping roof and other signature design elements. The Porsche 911 GT3 comes with a standard aero package, larger wheels and smoked headlamps with the distinctive four-point LED DRLs. The biggest addition though is the massive rear wing that provides tonnes of downforce, which is needed for a car of this stature. The chassis has been revised with rear-axle steering and the lightweight construction aids in improved driving dynamics.
The cabin, on the other hand, also comes with a familiar layout, similar to the standard 911, but with a host of customisation options including leather and Alcantara, apart from carbon fibre and aluminium inserts as optional. Customers also have the option to choose from three seat options – electrically adjustable adaptive sport seats, bucket seats with foldable backrest and bucket seats made out of carbon fibre reinforced plastic
