Supercar, also known as exotic car, is high-performance car with an, well, exotic (read: kind of out-of-this-world look). The new 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 does not have that kind of look, but it does the high-performance and the classic look of the Porsche 911 everyone has come to know and love. Perhaps, even more importantly for petrol heads, it is the result of a close collaboration with the marque’s motorsport division.
Power is derived by a naturally-aspirated 4.0L six-cylinder boxer engine based on the revered 911 GT3 R that develops a very desirable 503 horsepower. The power is put to good use through a 6-speed manual gearbox that enables it to rocket from naught to 1000 (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and sending it on its way to a top speed of 320 km/h, or 318 km/h with PDK).
This bred-for-track car further boasts double wishbone front axle layout, sophisticated aerodynamics with swan neck rear wing and striking diffuser originate from the GT race car 911 RSR, carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) hood, lightweight glass windows, optimized brake discs, forged light-alloy wheels, light weight sports exhaust system, infinitely electrically adjustable exhaust flaps, and a high-tech racing cockpit outfitted with a track screen that, at the touch of a button, reduces the digital displays with essential parameters to the left and right of the central rev counter.
The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Sports Coupe is expected to roll into the dealership in May 2021. Pricing is to be advised.
