Porsche Of The Day: 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 In Paint-To-Sample Sepia Brown

Porsche’s 911 GT3 of the 991.2 generation incorporated several improvements over its predecessor. Responding to the demands of its loyal customers, Porsche not only offered the PDK transmission but also introduced a manual gearbox at no additional cost.

The new 4.0-liter engine was derived from GT3 Cup cars, boasting a power output of 500 bhp – matching the 991.1 GT3 RS – due to a newly designed crankshaft and valve gear. Opting for a Porsche 911 GT3 type 991.2 with 6-speed manual gearbox decreases its acceleration reaching 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds but manages to increase its top speed to 320km/h.

With slightly revised aerodynamics, including a brand-new diffuser, the downforce produced is equal to that of the 997-generation GT3 RS. The vehicle’s track-day credentials are enhanced with standard equipment such as active engine mounts, rear axle, steering, and a limited-slip differential.
