The new Porsche 911 GT3 is set for release in late 2017, and we couldn’t be more excited to see the new, powerful sportscar. The vehicle boasts 500 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of torque. Check out what Porsche had to say about the new 911 GT3!
Thanks to a power-to-weight ratio of 6.4 pounds per hp, the 911 GT3 feels very much at home on the test track. With the standard seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) – specifically constructed and tuned for the GT3 – the 3,153 pound two-seater accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds with a top track speed of 197 miles per hour. For purists, Porsche will also offer the 911 GT3 with a six-speed manual transmission. With this transmission, the 911 GT3 weighs in at 3,116 pounds, allowing it to achieve a top track speed of 198 miles per hour and hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds.
The 2018 911 GT3 is scheduled to reach U.S. dealers in fall 2017. Visit indiGO Auto Group’s Porsche of Rancho Mirage on the Desert European Motorcars Campus, Porsche St. Louis, or Porsche of North Houston.
