Porsche GT3
28/02/06
The new Porsche GT3 sports coupe will go on sale in Europe in May 2006 and in the UK in August.

According to the company, GT3 stands for '�pure, unadulterated driving pleasure' and the car will impress '�not only in normal day-to-day driving but also on the racetrack'.

The 415-bhp 3.6-litre flat-twin engine produces a specific output of 115.3 bhp per litre, which, says the company, places the GT3 'at the pinnacle' of road-legal production sports cars with naturally aspirated engines. The impressive power-to-weight ratio translates into a 0-62 mph time of 4.3 seconds, en-route to a top speed of 194mph.

The new GT3 has a revised six-speed transmission, which has a very short gearlever travel and 'shorter'ratios. Also new for the GT3 is a change-up display, which lights up on the rev counter shortly before the relevant engine speed is reached.

The new 911 GT3 boasts an active chassis for the first time. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offers two chassis in one: the basic configuration is largely similar to that of the previous model and is suitable for driving on alternating road surfaces. In sport mode, the system switches to harder damping, thereby enabling even better dynamism on the racetrack.

The GT3's traction package includes 19-inch sports tyres along with a mechanical limited-slip differential and electronic traction control adapted from the Carrera GT. Th new system features traction-slip and drag-torque control functions, and can be switched off completely if required.

The Porsche 911 GT3 will go on sale in the UK on 26 August, 2006 with a basic price of £79,540.Speech Bubble
