Porsche Of The Day: 2023 Porsche 911 (992) GT3 Manthey Racing
This 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 has been enhanced with the coveted Manthey Performance Kit, courtesy of Porsche Centre Gothenburg. It sports an Arctic Grey exterior with striking carbon-fiber Manthey rear wing, red ‘Porsche’ lettering, and various Manthey decals. Inside, the cabin features black leather and Alcantara with red stitching, a black roll cage, and a combination of gloss black and brushed aluminum inlays. This GT3 rides on lightweight Manthey 20-inch front and 21-inch rear Brilliant Silver center-lock alloy wheels with carbon-fiber aero discs and Michelin tires.
The Manthey Performance Kit offers various enhancements, including four-way adjustable shocks, lightweight center-lock alloy wheels in Brilliant Silver, carbon-fiber aero discs, high-performance brake pads, braided brake lines, front lip and flaps, air guide element, carbon-fiber rear wing with end plates, diffuser, front and rear tow lugs, illuminated carbon-fiber door sill guards, LED door projectors with Manthey logo, and a black Manthey decal set.
Additional features include rear parking sensors, switchable driving modes, cruise control, carbon-backed sports seats with Schroth Racing harnesses, front axle lift, dual-zone climate control, Sport Chrono, a Bose sound system, and Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with satellite navigation and smartphone connectivity.
Power comes from a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine that revs to 9,000 rpm and has little in common with the unit found elsewhere in the 992 range and a lot to do with the one used in Porsche’s GT3 Cup racing car. Power is up a modest 10bhp to 503 bhp, torque to 347 ft lbs. It’ll accelerate to 62mph in 3.4 seconds, and onto a top speed of 198mph.
