Porsche India have silently introduced the all-new 991.II 911 GT3 in India. Bookings are now open.

The all-new 911 GT3 from Porsche is a landmark moment for most automotive enthusiasts as, in the age of downsizing and turbos, with even the 911 Carrera not spared, Porsche have introduced a larger 4.0-litre six-cylinder boxer – naturally aspirated, of course – revving all the way to 9,000 rpm, no less.

The new 991.II model is sleeker, lighter and looks even faster standing still than the outgoing model. Accompanied by the large rear wing, much needed for downforce, the GT3 is unmistakably spotted. The overall length is 4,546 mm with the height of the new car down to 1,271 mm. The car, as always, is inspired by racing and there are more than several clues to its heritage. This is the one for the purist.

Under the skin is the new 3,996-cc dry-sumped naturally-aspirated boxer-six developed for their Cup racer that makes 500 PS at 8,250 rpm, with a peak 460 Nm of torque coming in at 6,000 rpm. While a six-speed manual transmission is available, the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) twin-clutch automatic box is standard, driving the rear wheels. The GT3 sports 20-inch alloy wheels with centre-locking wheel-nuts, wrapped in 245/35 ZR20 front and 305/30 ZR20 rear specially-developed Michelin rubber. The GT3 will do 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and go on to a top speed of 318 km/h (with the PDK; 3.9 seconds and 320 km/h with the manual transmission, respectively).

The new 911 GT3 is available to order with prices start at Rs 2.2 crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai, without any customisation of accessories). And, no, there’s nothing extra charged for the manual transmission.
