The Porsche 911 GT3 is one of the most gorgeous and powerful car from Porsche. It was introduced in 1999 as a high performance version of the first water-cooled version of the Porsche 911.
The 2010 GT3 sees a couple of significant upgrades over the previous GT3, but significantly does not get the direct injection technology found on nearly every other new Porsche model. The powerplant in the 911 GT3 does displace 3.8 liters, up .2 liters over the former GT3, and produces 435 bhp, a jump of 20 horses over the outgoing model.
The newly designed front air vents, ahead of the front hood, channel cooling air to the radiator and, in combination with the front lip spoiler, provide even more front end downforce. As is typical in motorsport, all of the cooling air inlets are protected by new air inlet grilles with a dark grey powder-coated finish.
Now included for the first time is the Porsche Stability Management, which can be completely disabled in the hands of a professional driver but will probably save many a driver with the chips for a 2009 911 GT3 without necessarily carrying the skills to take a rear-engined supercar to its limits.
Stability and traction control systems can also be disabled seperately, giving a discerning driver the ability to only employ the nannies he or she needs for a specific situation.
The low-slung front end, featuring a slew of minor changes to the lip spoiler and lower dams, will lift upon driver command by a full inch for use on bad roads or over bumps.
The lights on the new 911 GT3 have also been completely redesigned, with Bi-Xenon™ headlights fitted as standard. Indicators and LED daytime running lights are harmoniously integrated into the separate front light units over the outer air intakes.
At the rear, distinctive LED lights are drawn right into the fascia and taper outwards. Unmistakable – just like the new fixed bi-plane wing.
