The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is your answer to motorsport-like performance, remarkable design and an unfiltered driving experience.
Porsche is back in business, and by business, we mean its legendary 911 GT3 model has been resurrected, and with a manual transmission to boot.
Yes, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. The 2018 model will still come with the brilliant 7-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox ‚Äî considered one of the industry‚Äôs best‚Äî but purists who put priority in the vehicle-driver connection over fastest possible shift times, will rejoice at Porsche‚Äôs latest decision.
Link that to a naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six from the R and GT3 RS models, and you‚Äôll get a car that revs with very impressive tenacity. With the 500hp and 460Nm of torque produced, you‚Äôll be flying to 100kph in only 3.8 seconds and eventually hit a top speed of 318kph ‚Äî even with that large rear tail.
Top speed might be down by 1.6kph in the PDK version, but the dual-clutch is still faster in just about every other way. Expect acceleration to 100kph in only 3.2 seconds. That‚Äôs very fast, and creeping into the McLaren 570S‚Äô territory.
