it is true that most people think of Porsche when the words ‘sports car’ is mentioned. this is the extend of the image of Porsche and it is not just impression, it is true – as exemplified by the marque’s most iconic ride: the Porsche 911. while this icon of modern-day performance ride has both the performance and looks, it is however, more of a docile ride – well, docile in the German automobile maker’s book – and that’s why we have the GT3. so, if you in for an everyday ride with track-ready performance, then do not miss the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3. officially unwrapped at the Geneva Auto Show 2013, the GT3 sits among the top of the Porsche food chain with its 475 hp naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter Boxer engine. the torque peaks at 324 lb-ft (439 Nm). mated to a seven-speed double-clutch aka PDK automatic transmission, the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 zips from zero to 60 mph (97 km/h) in mere 3.3 seconds. keep the metal to the pedal and 124 mph (200 km/h) is less than 12 seconds away, topping out at 195 mph (about 314 km/h). a noteworthy thing about its gearbox: it is a unit specially developed for this vehicle, featuring shorter gear ratios with closer spacing, fast shifting, shift paddles with shorter travel and increase tactile feedback (interesting point: pulling both paddles back simultaneously quickly puts the car into neutral). other notables include, active rear-wheel steering, optional full LED headlights, electronically controlled driving dynamics, fully variable rear differential lock, dynamic engine mounts, a hybrid steel and aluminum construction, the unmissable large, fixed rear wing, and the 2014 GT3 rolls on huge 20-inch forced alloy wheels with center-locking hubs – just like those found on the track-going cars. the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 is slated to reach the dealership in the U.S. with a price starting from $130,400.
