In the anniversary year of the Porsche Elfers now proposes a new chapter for some distance driving high performance sports cars. The fifth generation of the 911 GT3 does a complete redevelopment of the pole position among the thoroughbred Porsche sports cars with naturally aspirated series.
Boxer engine and transmission, body and chassis are completely new and introduce the concept of the 911 GT3 continues with an impressive performance leap. Power: 475 hp. Power to weight ratio: 3.0 kg / hp. Acceleration from zero to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. Maximum speed: 315 km / h.
To as technical highlight the first active rear comes in a production Porsche. And the optional full-LED headlights. The new 911 GT3 all remain successful properties of suitable sports car racing get more dynamic, more sophisticated practicality - and hochemotionalem fun.
The powertrain of the new 911 GT3 is composed of a 3.8-liter boxer engine that develops 475 hp (350 kW) at 8.250/min, a Porsche double-clutch transmission (PDK) and the high-traction rear-wheel drive. The six-cylinder engine is based on the aggregate of the 911 Carrera S, but this has only a few common parts.
All other components, particularly the crankshaft and valve gear are specially adapted for the GT3 or developed. Shall suspend Porsche a titanium connecting rods and forged pistons. The basic modifications set the stage for an extreme high-speed engine that reaches up to 9000/min. Even the Porsche double-clutch gearbox has been specially developed with properties be based directly on a sequential gearbox from motor racing and the driver thereby provide other benefits to performance and dynamics.
Porsche is the first time an active rear in order to achieve an even better precision and lateral dynamics. Depending on the speed it directs towards the same direction and one to the front wheels, improving stability and agility. Other new dynamics modules are the electronically controlled, fully variable rear differential lock and the dynamic engine mounts. The newly developed all-aluminum chassis is how far to adjust in height, toe and camber. The road pads new 20-inch forged alloy wheels with central locking ago.
The 911 GT3 is based on the light yet torsionally stiff body of the current 911 Carrera generation in steel / aluminum hybrid design, but has a respective independent front and rear part. In addition, the 911 GT3 in the area of the rear axle by 44 millimeters wider than a 911 Carrera S.
Distinct identifying feature is again the large, fixed rear wing. He combines a decisive role in the aerodynamics of the new 911 GT3, the low air resistance with further increased output values.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 comes to the market in August 2013
