    The 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 comes powered by a 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine churning out 493 BHP of power and 540 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are carried by a 6-speed manual transmission while a 7-speed PDK automatic gearbox is also present as an option. The time taken by the vehicle to reach the sprint of 100 kmph is within 4 seconds while the top speed is rated at 318 kmph for the automatic variant and it goes up to 320 kmph with the manual gearbox.

     

    The the two-seater receives subtle changes at the exterior and is now offered with larger rims and a huge rear spoiler making it better at handling and high speed stability. While the seats have been lowered by 25 mm for a better experience behind the wheel, Smoked headlamps with LED DRLs, a touchscreen infotainment unit along with Bose supplied sound system at the interior are the other changes.

     

    Sitting on a revamped chassis, the 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 also weights lesser than the other variants. The body shell is carved in a composite made from aluminium and steel, with the front and rear ends in lightweight polyurethane alongwith the rear lid, wing uprights and rear wing are made of carbon, with connecting rods made of titanium. Some of the weight shedding visible to the naked eye include the absence of rear seats and a dedicated luggage compartment. However, the rear spoiler on the GT3 is now more pronounced in order to gather more traction. Also, the automaker offers a lot of customization options available to the customer when it comes to upholstery, dashboard inserts and seats.

    Porsche India has launched the Porsche 911 in 2016 and the 911 GT3 broke its cover at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The newly launched Porsche 911 GT3 competes with the Mercedes AMG GT R, Nissan GT-R and Audi R8 in the country.
