2021 Porsche 911 GT3 revealed

Porsche has finally pulled the wraps off the all-new 911 GT3 that is known to be the most fun-to-drive car from Porsche out there. However, there are a lot more things to know about this new car, which has been co-developed by Porsche Motorsport. And to the extreme excitement of the enthusiasts, the car does get the DNA from the motorsport world.

To begin with, Porsche has tried to replicate the feel of the 911 RSR motorsport model as much as possible. The double-wishbone suspension provides agility on twisties on mountain roads or even a race track. The rear wing and the front diffuser are now larger to bring extra stability and downforce at high speeds.

And now comes the fun part. Porsche hasn’t gone the turbocharged engine route for this mad GT3. Instead, it persists with the naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre, 6-cylinder engine which makes 10 PS and 10 Nm more than before. This takes the total power figures to 510 PS and 470 Nm. Plus, the character and feel is enormous, and you get the same from the throttle that revs up to 9,000 RPM.

The Porsche 911 GT3 will be made available in both 7-speed dual-clutch and 6-speed manual transmission options, the latter getting rev-matching as standard. And if you want to know what you get from this combination; the car can complete the 0-100 kmph acceleration test in just 3.4 seconds.

Aesthetically too, there has been a good use of carbon fibre, which helped the 911 GT3 lose a lot of weight. A lot of additions, including the roof, the hood, rear wing, have taken the carbon fibre route. The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels get a single centre-locking nut, just like a race car. The exhaust system has also shed around 20 kgs from the standard model; all this to enhance the performance to the peak. Practically, this new Porsche does a lap of the ring in 6 minutes and 59.927 seconds, roughly 17 seconds quicker.

This insane Porsche 911 GT3 will go on sale in May 2021, and the Singapore launch is expected to be sometime later in that timeline. Enthusiasts are already waiting for this insane and fun Porsche to take the stage soon. And very rightly so, it has truly the most happening Porsche to have been built, ever.
