“The cumulative case it makes is this: When a driver unloads aggression into its controls, it doesn’t balk. It doesn’t plead for mechanical mercy. From its perspective, driving with purpose differs not at all from driving for pleasure. When much is asked of the GT3, it simply goes faster. It goes faster and then, like a bitterly defiant teenager, it doubles down, betting that what it can endure exceeds what you can supply. That is a profoundly fantastic thing for a sports car to do”.
You might think hanging a 420-pound, 500-hp 4.0-liter hunk of flat-six over the back wheels of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 would make it hard to handle at speed (or otherwise). You might also think adding rear-wheel steering would accentuate that skittishness. You, and probably some physicists, would be wrong on both accounts. Sure, on cold tires, in the morning around a roundabout, the race-bred GT3 can, and will, slide its tail sideways without warning. It is still for the hard-core. But exiting a sweeper at 80 mph with foot to floor? It’s planted like an old oak tree, even over the shiny, red-and-white curbing at Circuit Guadix in southern Spain.
The GT3 is the track car from the track car brand. It’s been 20 years since the first 911 GT3 premiered, and since then, it’s gone from hiding a 355-hp 3.6-liter flat-six to today’s 500-hp, 911 GT3 Cup-derived 4.0. It’s the only naturally aspirated 911 you can buy right now along the RS variant.
Peak power is at a screaming 8,250 rpm while all 339 lb-ft of twist are available at 6,000 rpm. The seven-speed PDK-equipped GT3 is faster than the stick, with a sprint time of 3.2 seconds using launch control; The PDK car takes 11 seconds flat to get to 124 mph, which Autoweek journalists can basically verify after hammering down arrow-straight, desolate back roads near Granada. Terminal velocities (197 mph, PDK; 198 mph, 6MT) are achieved in top gear for both.
The GT3 gets redesigned front and rear bumpers made of lightweight polyurethane and carbon fiber. New front air blades force air to the brakes, and the fixed rear wing is about an inch higher, which puts it right on the horizon line when on a flat road, unfortunately. The total package makes 20 percent more downforce than the outgoing model while keeping the same coefficient of drag. It’s about 2 inches wider and 1 inch lower than the 911 Carrera. A straked rear diffuser hides just under the back end, cleaning airflow underneath.
Porsche’s Active Stability Management system is standard and controls the damping on the MacPherson strut front and multilink rear suspension. Auxiliary springs help keep tension on the main springs in back, helping the car stay composed “after rapid and complete deflection,” like when flying over the crest of a hill. The rear steering system works like similar systems from other manufacturers: It uses actuators to angle the wheels up to 1.5 degrees depending on speed. Below 31 mph, the rears turn opposite the fronts; above 50 mph, they turn the same way for quick lane-change maneuvers, on the track or off.
