The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is ridiculously beautiful and powerful
Porsche has unveiled the 2018 991 GT3, a naturally-aspirated beast and – in red – arguably one of the best-looking 911 models of recent times. The car features a 4.0-litre flat six engine which produces 372kW, which is based on the engine used in 911 race cars. The new 911 GT3 comes standard with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK), letting the car accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds.
Top speed comes in at 317km/h. “For purists, Porsche will also offer the 911 GT3 with a six-speed manual transmission,” said Porsche. The manual version takes 3.8 seconds to reach 100km/h, and tops out at just under 320km/h.
Porsche said it has improved the handling and chassis of the GT3, with dynamic engine mounts and rear locking differential boosting the car’s “driving dynamics”. The 2018 911 GT3 is scheduled to reach the US before the end of 2017. The base MSRP will be £143,600.
