Porsche releases 2018 911 GT3 official online configurator

Article by Christian A., on July 17, 2017

Right after holding the premiere of the new 911 GT3 in Geneva, Porsche introduced an updated online configurator for the vehicle.

The Porsche exclusive configurator provides a Paint to Sample scheme with 15 various shades to choose from. This includes the very stunning Miami Blue that costs 4,220 USD. In the US, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 has a starting price of 143,600 USD. The price will go up once the special paint is selected by the client.

Porsche’s official configurator also gives its customers a choice between four different wheel finishes for the new 911 GT3. For its cabin, the configurator lets the owner opt for a new set of bucket seats for the price of 5,200 USD aside from the available standard Sports Seats. The Adaptive Sports Seats on the other hand costs around 2,640 USD.

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is also offered with several choices of carbon fiber trims for an additional price. Other optional features include painted air vents, white instrument dials, a fire extinguisher, heated seats and automatic dimming mirrors.

Porsche is also offering the 6-speed manual transmission option without extra cost despite the online configurator not having it included initially.

It was reported earlier that the 911 GT3 will not come with a manual model. Quite expectedly, this has caused quite a stir especially among manual car enthusiasts. Porsche has quickly resolved the issue by coming up with the latest 911.2 GT3. This offers their customers a choice between a 7-speed dual clutch and a 6-speed manual.

Porsche usually charges separately for a PDK transmission but not on the GT3 since both manual and PDK come as “no cost options”. As far as we know, the PDK models will begin production soon. The rest however will have to wait until Porsche commences the production of the manual in September. That means, the only cost involved for getting the manual is the hassle of waiting.

Rob Ferreti, a YouTuber also known as SuperSpeedersRob, has actually planned on selling his 997 GT3 to get the new 911 GT3 in time for his European trip this September. But since he’s opting for the manual, he might also need a little dose of patience. Nonetheless, Ferreti is using Porsche’s official configurator to specify the color of his choice—the Sapphire Blue Metallic Neunelfer. We think the gorgeous body paint plus the manual gear knobs will be truly worth the wait.
