Fifth Generation Porsche 911 GT3 Makes Debut at Goodwood

2013 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Porsche 911.

In celebration, the team at Porsche are now presenting the new 911 GT3 in its fifth iteration, rolling it out alongside seven generations of 911 cousins.

Powered by a purpose-built normally-aspirated 3.8-litre flat six engine developing 475 hp that revs to 9,000rpm, the new GT3 drives its rear wheels via a seven-speed PDK double-clutch transmission with a unique steering wheel paddle-shift. Further innovations include active rear-wheel steering for increased cornering agility and enhanced high speed stability.

Acceleration from 0-62 mph takes 3.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 196 mph. A sub-7 min 30 secs lap time around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife underlines the phenomenal potential of the latest GT3, and opens a new chapter in the history of this modern classic.
