Porsche could not miss the avalanche of car news we have for today, as the manufacturer from Stuttgart unveiled Porsche 911 GT3. It is the most powerful version of the current 911 generation and it will soon be derived in a dedicated racing version. The new variant includes some aesthetic changes, a number of technical improvements and a more powerful engine, making Porsche 911 GT3 the hottest street version of the iconic German model.

The first changes seen at GT3 version compared to existing versions of the 911 are the new bumpers and a massive rear spoiler. We also see central mounted vents, 20-inch wheels in diameter and yellow brake calipers. Engine found on Porsche 911 GT3 is a 3.8-liter boxer unit developing 475 hp at 8250 rpm pushing the acceleration 0-60 (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds. Unlike official images presented so far featuring a bright red 911 GT3, the Porsche stand at Geneva Motor Show presented a white model.

Moreover, the German model needs less than 12 seconds for 124 mph (0-200 km/h) reaching a maximum speed of 196 mph (315 km/h). To improve roadholding, Porsche has – for the first time in the history of Porsche – added an active steering system, rear wheels slightly changing the angle depending on speed cornering. Prices for Porsche 911 GT3 start at just over £100,000, with the first customer deliveries later this year.
