The new 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 has been revealed overnight ahead of an Australian arrival in the second half of the year.
 
Power in the track-focussed GT3 comes from a 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine producing 375kW and 470Nm. Drive goes to the rear wheel through a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic or optional six-speed manual transmission.
 
In terms of performance, Porsche claims PDK equipped cars can sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 318km/h. With a manual gearbox, the GT3 can hit triple figures in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 320km/h.
 
Despite a larger body and wheels when compared to its predecessor with a manual gearbox it weighs 1418kg while PDK models tip the scales at 1435kg.
 
To keep the weight down, there’s a carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) front bonnet, lightweight glass windows, forged light-alloy wheels and a lightweight sports exhaust system.
 
The double-wishbone front axle layout, swan neck rear wing and diffuser originate from the 911 RSR race car.
 
On the inside, the GT3 is in line with the current 911 992 model generation. It features a new track screen function that displays tyre pressure, oil pressure, oil temperature, fuel tank level and water temperature. It also includes a visual shift assistant with coloured bars to the left and right of the rev counter and a shift light derived from motorsport.
 
Buyers can option an exposed carbon fibre roof, carbon exterior mirror tops, darkened LED matrix headlights, unique rear lights with an arc of light without red components, and ‘Guards Red’ or ‘Shark Blue’ painted wheel rims.
 
Porsche’s Australian arm will confirm local pricing and specifications in the lead up to the car’s local launch in the second half of 2021.
