Porsche India has announced the arrival of the first 911 GT3 in the country. Boasting more power, more precision and a systematic lightweight construction, the radical two-seater promises the perfect combination of racetrack and road driving. Equipped with a redesigned chassis featuring rear-axle steering, the new model benefits from Porsche's unrivalled motorsport heritage and is built on the same production line as other thoroughbred racing cars. For the first time, Porsche offers two transmission variants of the manufacturer's most successful GT sports car.

Its 500-hp four-litre flat engine is a carbon version of that found in the 911 GT3 Cup, and produces 460 Nm of torque. When equipped with the standard seven-speed double-clutch transmission (PDK), the model reaches 100 kmph in 3.4 seconds, achieving the fastest-possible lap times and a top speed of 318 kmph. Motorsport purists can opt for a lighter six-speed manual transmission at no extra costs. The new GT sports gearbox with dual-mass flywheel features a shorter shift lever, short shift paths and precisely engaging gears.

Commenting on the new model, Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, said, "We have noticed a rising demand for sports cars in our market, and with the 911 GT3 blurring the line between racetrack and road more than ever before, we have no doubt it will meet that demand and offer a thrilling driving experience to our customers both on the road and the track."

The 911 GT3 model is now available at all Porsche Centres across the country with a basic retail price of Rs 2,31,21,000.
