New details on the eagerly awaited Porsche 911 GT3 991, the track ready variant of the rear engined Stuttgart coupé. According to the latest rumours, the new Porsche GT3 should be displayed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show: the German carmaker, however, should begin releasing the first teaser images as early as mid-February, roughly two weeks before the car’s official début at the Swiss event. The first deliveries are expected to begin in late Summer 2013 and the expected price will be around €145,000 (£117,500).
Porsche 911 GT3 991 should be powered by a naturally aspirated 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 450 horsepower with rear-wheel drive and mated to a double clutch PDK automatic transmission. The car should employ a new electric steering wheel and might also be coming with four-wheel steering system as optional (rumour circulating online, there are no official details about this feature).
The next generation of Porsche 911 GT3 should be lighter than the previous version, weighting around 1,355 kg. The new Porsche 991 GT3 should sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 4 seconds, reaching a top speed of 320 km / h. The car boasts true sports handling, thanks to rigid suspension and race features, such as the characteristic rear wing; the interior is more basic than other Porsche 911 luxury versions. The new Porsche 911 GT3 should be using new bumpers and carbon fibre components, to make the body of the car wider than the Porsche 911 4S 991.
