Last week, Porsche released a video in which some features of the 2014 911 GT3 were detailed. Coming right after its Geneva Motor Show debut, the 911 GT3 showcases its aggressive new look that features extended side skirts, a different rear bumper, optional LED headlights, a fixed rear wing and bigger spoilers. It also packs a set of 20-inch forged alloys wrapped in performance tires and a center-mounted dual exhaust system.
Under the bonnet, the car has a six-cylinder 3.8-liter boxer engine that develops 475 HP – 349 kW and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. It sends all that power to the wheels via a dual-clutch, 7-speed gearbox. On the performance side, the Porsche 911 GT3 sprints from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in only 3.5 seconds and is able to reach a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph).
The most important feature on the new 911 GT3 is the active rear wheel steering system which can steer the rear wheels in the same or opposite direction of the front wheels for better agility on track.
The interior of the ride hasn’t been changed that much over the standard 911 except for the Alcantara steering wheel, leather/Alcantara seats with contrasting stitching. The 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 is scheduled to go on sale this August in Germany and it has a base price of 137,303 EUR (VAT included).
