Porsche 911 GT3 with a PDK transmission in the making

Porsche 911 GT3 with a PDK transmission in the making

Porsche is preparing a lighter and faster version of the track ready 911 GT3 and might make it available in the second half of this year. The purpose-built track car will get a slew of upgrades over the standard 911 GT3 model.

The car will get a revised aerodynamic package and among the aero aids will be winglets planted on the front spoiler with wider wheel arches to accommodate the new tyres as the car will have a wider track. The new car will have 50 per cent more downforce over the standard car. It will shed its excess weight by using lighter panels, thin glass and a stripped out cabin.

The new variant might get the same six-cylinder 3.8-litre boxer engine which might be upgraded for more power. In breaking the tradition of the GT3, for the first time, the sports car will sport a PDK transmission that will have new gear ratios and a different shifting strategy.

While all these updates might aid further in taking the performance of the GT3 to a new level, purists and enthusiasts might frown over the introduction of an automatic transmission. The GT3’s current lap record of 7 min 25 sec at the Nurburgring track might be broken by the new car, we shall wait and see by how much.
