Porsche has unveiled the new 911 GT3 at the Geneva International Motor Show. The completely-redeveloped fifth generation of the 911 GT3 laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife in under 7:30 minutes, and benefits from a new engine, transmission, body and chassis.
Power comes from a 3.8-liter boxer engine with 475 hp mated to a specially developed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) which drives the rear wheels.
0-60 mph comes in 3.3 seconds and the top speed is 195 mph. The 2014 911 GT3 will go on sale in the United States late in 2013 and will be priced from $130,400.
As a technical highlight, the 911 GT3 features the first active rear-wheel steering in a production Porsche, as well as optional full LED headlights. The new GT3 brings to everyday driving many of the properties of a sports car developed on the track, and preserves the highly emotional fun factor.
The 911 GT3 is 1.7 inches wider than a 911 Carrera S in the rear. Another distinctive feature is the large, fixed rear wing, which contributes to the exemplary aerodynamics.
