Porsche has priced the high performance 911 GT3 in India at Rs 2.1 crores and will be launched here officially on October 9. This is the most extreme 911 made in this generation and combines the German automaker’s racing experience along with luxury features.
This 911 is powered by a rear mounted 4.0-litre six-cylinder boxer engine producing 500bhp/540Nm, thus giving it a near perfect power-to-weight ratio. The India-spec GT3 can be had with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed PDK automatic.
Visual cues that separate the 911 GT3 from the standard car include a complete aero package, bigger wheels and smoked head lamps. The highlight is, of course, a massive rear wing to hold the car down in place as you corner at neck breaking speeds.
Unlike the olden days where less meant more cash, this 911 GT3 gets all the creature comforts like a leather and alacantera trim package. You have a whole load of interior customisation options which vary on the lines of aluminium or carbon fibre at a significant extra cost. There is a large Bose touchscreen system with surround sound as well as climate control adding to the interior design.
At 2.1 crores, the 911 GT3 is almost in a league of its own when it comes to performance and price. However, you do now have the Mercedes AMG GT R which is not as track focused, but is capable of offering a similar adrenaline pumping driving experience. Like the other vehicles in the Porsche range in India, this too will arrive here via the CBU route.
