TALK TO ROMANS ON 01727 858000
When you are testing the mettle of genuine hardcore sports cars more at home on the track than on the road, few can go head-to-head with the revered Porsche 911 GT3. It's been that way since 1999, when the first example, based on the 996-series 911, rolled out of Porsche's Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen factory and became an instant icon, on and off the track. The GT3 has since enjoyed a hugely successful racing career, with dedicated track versions winning a slew of championship and endurance races, including six outright wins at the 24 Hours Nurburgring and seven wins in the GT class of the American Le Mans Series. Perhaps even more so than its predecessors, this latest-generation Porsche 911 GT3 road car is unlikely to be confused with any of its 911 brethren, including the range-topping Turbo S. For a start, there is that unmistakable, oversize fixed rear wing that generates increased downforce, along with a large ram-air intake for the rear-mounted engine. The signature GT3's can-size exhaust pipes - centrally mounted and a new rear bumper with vertical air ducts to help with the car's improved aerodynamics. There is also an all-new design up front, with a deeper front bumper incorporating triple air-ducts and a new headlight design and side mirrors. The 991 does not have the glorious Mezger engine its predecessors had. In its place is a reworked naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six the latest 911 Carrera S uses. This is a mighty engine, providing a sonorous 475 hp. Torque is up 7 lb-ft to 324 lb-ft at 6,250 rpm, although this figure is misleading because there is now significantly more midrange shove and thus greater flexibility throughout the rev range. Direct injection for the first time, along with special rocker-arm valve operation, also provides more smoothness than before. The exhaust note does not so much resonate through your body, it begins to assault your inner organs as you set sight on the dizzying 9,000-rpm limiter. The latest Porsche Doppelkupplung is no ordinary dual-clutch gearbox, but one developed specifically for racing. The shift quality is smooth, and there's impressive part-throttle finesse. Related to the Carrera S' trans, it receives unique ratios including a 3.97:1 final drive, as well as individual mapping. The revised gearing, described as 15 percent shorter than the old 911 GT3, combines with added shove, and frankly scary traction, away from the line. The official 0-60-mph time is 3.3 seconds, a half-second faster than the outgoing GT3. Top speed is 196 mph. Our Agate Grey example comes with black half leather/half Alcantara interior with optional Carbon Sport Seats. Long list of specification include Front Axle Lift System, PCCB (Carbon Ceramic Brakes) with Yellow Brake Callipers, 20 inch GT3 Platinum Coloured Wheels, Sport Exhaust System, PCM Satellite Navigation Module, Bluetooth Hands Free - see more details in 'Specification' section on the right.
