    New GT3 Pictures and some description, enjoy

    TUESDAY MAY 7, 2002 -- courtesy of flat-6 --









    . Scoop images of coming 911 GT3
    . Scoop video of coming 911 GT3

    PORSCHE TEST DRIVERS are working with the next 911 GT3 these very weeks. Now we know and we thank Porsche, these are the first pictures of an undisguised prototype of the new Porsche 911 GT3.

    GT3 is the high-performance variant of the normally aspirated current 911 Carrera - not to be confused with the turbo charged GT2, which is based on the current 911 Turbo.

    When that 911 Turbo was first presented in 1999, it already had those newly shaped headlights the standard 911 Carrera received only about a year later. And also the GT2, based on the Turbo and presented in January 2001, got the more modern headlamps right from the start. The latest GT3 was based on the former 911 Carrera, but now Porsche brings the GT3 up to today's standard - the car on the images and the video - is based on the latest 911 Carrera.

    Equipped with a manual six-speed gearbox, the 3.6-litre flat six engine in the rear will pump a stunning 370 HP. Chassis and mechanics will be fine-tuned and should allow a top-speed of around 310 km/h. Traditionally, the interior will be quite Spartan compared to a standard Carrera.

    FACTS:

    Re: New GT3 Pictures and some description, enjoy

    Thanks Ron, pretty nice.
    BTW: the GT2's engine is based on the 996 Turbo engine but the car itself is based on the GT3, despite the usage of the Turbo body. The suspension setup is even almost the same with some mods.
    The car on the picture runs the GT3 RSR brake.

    Re: New GT3 Pictures and some description, enjoy

    Thanks for the info RC. I was kind of wondering what kind of brakes were on the car in the picture? I thought they were PCCB. Are the brakes on the car better than PCCB brakes or just a different kind?
    Would this car be available in the U.S. or not?

    Re: New GT3 Pictures and some description, enjoy

    I can't exclude that Porsche will offer the PCCB on a new GT3. Actually I'm pretty sure they will because of development cost and image. And not to forget earning money. I don't hide my torn feelings towards PCCB. If PCCB is such a performer, why doesn't Porsche use it in their GT3 race cars ? Maybe Porsche should have waited a year or two before putting PCCB on the market.

    Re: New GT3 Pictures and some description, enjoy

    ron,

    thank you!

    BTW: i'm glad to notice that porsche is not gonna use the sebring-style middle exhaust (like the 2002 cup carrera) -- ugly!! leave it to mini coopers and boxsters ;-))
