Some official information about the new GT3 has surfaced ahead of its official debut in early 2021 after Porsche gave passenger rides to international publications in a prototype GT3.
The new GT3 will be powered by the previous generation 4.0 litre naturally aspirated flat six updated to meet strict European emissions regulations. It will produce 375 kW (around 500 horsepower) with no official torque figure yet released.
As a buyer, you will be given a choice of either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed ‘PDK’ dual clutch automatic gearbox. Again, no official 0-100 km/h figures have been released yet but considering that the last generation did the 0-100 run in 3.9s and 3.4s respectively for the manual and automatic. So, you can expect shorter run times of one or two tenths of a second.
Good news is that to meet the emission reductions, Porsche was able to keep the feature loved by many: the 9,000 rpm redline.
They’ve also managed to keep the weight the same as its predecessor at 1374 kg despite the new generation having a larger body.
The new GT3 will be fitted with a double-wishbone front suspension design derived from Porsche 991-gen 911 RSR race car – the first road legal 911 to get this!
The 992-generation will get upgraded aerodynamic package which features a swan-neck rear wing allowing a smoother flow of air, dual bonnet vents, wide front air intake and a deep front splitter.
Featured on the new GT3 will be 20-inch front and 21-inch centre locking rear alloy wheels with 255/35 front and 315/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.
As standard the car will get steel brakes, carbon ceramic will most likely be offered as a pricy option.
More information about the car will be available once it is officially unveiled in 2021! Stay tuned until then!
