The first production Porsche to come with an active rear-wheel steering system is the latest 911 GT3 and in this video we get the chance to see how it works. At speeds of up to 31 mph (50 km/h), the rear wheels will turn in the opposite direction of the front ones while after hitting 50 mph (80 km/h) the rear wheels are going to turn in the same direction to improve stability. Porsche's engineers have installed two actuators which are in charge of steering the rear wheels up to 1.5 degrees.

As a reminder, motorization is provided by a six-cylinder 3.8-liter boxer engine developing 475 HP (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque sent to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox and a locking differential. It will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and can achieve a maximum speed of 195 mph (315 km/h).

Porsche is currently having some serious issues with the 911 GT3 as they have halted deliveries after five cars caught fire in recent months.
