► Porsche 911 GT3

By YouCar

The most sporting 911 with a naturally-aspirated power unit is all set and ready to take up new challenges: Even more powerful, faster and more dynamic than ever before, the new 911 GT3 is about to prove its enhanced potential as of May 2009. As usual, a wide range of know-how gained in motorsport has gone directly into the develop - ment of this outstanding sports car, making the new GT3 a supreme performer not only on the road, but also on the track. The Porsche 911 GT3 now reaches an even higher standard in its two main qualities: power and driving dynamics. Maximum output of the naturally-aspirated six-cylinder now increased in size to 3.8 litres is 435 bhp (320 kW), up 20 bhp over the previous model. In particular, the flat-six power unit carefully upgraded for even more muscle and performance offers a signi - ficant increase in torque at medium engine speeds very noticeable above all in everyday use. Road performance of the new GT3 has also been enhanced once again, with the car acce - lerating to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and reaching 160 km/h in 8.2 seconds. Top speed is 312 km/h or 193 mph, and both fuel consumption as well as exhaust emissions have been further reduced. More news and videos on
