Porsche has released a new video that highlights the 911 GT3.
In the clip, GT3 project leader Andreas Preuninger reveals the car is not about raw speed but rather the "puristic, rewarding driving experience." As he explains, "a sports car has to offer an emotional driving experience, you have to feel exactly what the car is doing."
Preuninger also revealed that he decided the car should be offered exclusively with a PDK transmission following a four hour drive through the Black Forest. While the prototype was equipped with an early PDK gearbox, Preuninger felt confident the company was able to offer the best dual-clutch transmission in the world.
As we have previously reported, the 911 GT3 is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer engine that develops 475 HP (349 kW) and 324 lb-ft (438 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph).
The Porsche 911 GT3 is currently on sale in Germany and pricing starts at €137,303.
