2014 Porsche 911 (991) GT3 makes its North American debut in New York

Article by Christian A., on March 28, 2013

Making its North American debut at the New York Auto Show is the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 – the fifth generation model. This totally redeveloped model is the sportiest ever in the 911 range. The 911 GT3 is capable of completing a lap on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in less than 7 minutes and 30 seconds due to its new engine, transmission, body and chassis.

The car is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and is capable of reaching a top track speed of 195 mph. The new GT3 may have been developed and fine-tuned on the track, carrying the excitement over from the track to everyday driving. The 911 GT3 comes with the first active rear-wheel steering in a production Porsche as well as optional full LED headlights.

Its powertrain consists of a 3.8-liter boxer engine with an output of 475 hp (125hp/liter) and a 9,000 rpm redline. The six-cylinder engine is based on the same engine as the 911 Carrera S. However, they only have a few parts in common.

All the other parts like the crankshaft, valve gear and Porsche-designed titanium connecting rods and forged pistons were either developed or adapted for the GT3. Furthermore, the rear of the 911 GT3 is 1.7 inches wider than that of the 911 Carrera S.

It has a big fixed rear wing that aids in achieving excellent aerodynamics. The 2014 911 GT3 will start selling later this year in the U.S. It has a starting price of $130,400 (excluding a $950 destination cost).
