911 GT3

Engine

Located just above the tarmac and positioned low down in the rear is the newly developed water-cooled six-cylinder aluminum engine with four valves per cylinder, VarioCam and a separate engine oil tank.

This high-revving concept promises exceptional power. The engine has a maximum speed of 9,000...

VarioCam Plus System

The upgraded VarioCam system is an engine timing concept that distinguishes between various engine speeds and load states so that timing can be adapted to suit the current power demand. It regulates not only the adjustment of the intake camshafts but also the exhaust camshafts in order to deliver...

Dry-sump lubrication

The engine oil supply is vital at the limits of sporty performance, especially in the presence of the powerful lateral and longitudinal forces that can be experienced on the racetrack.

Two oil scavenge pumps per cylinder head and two scavenge pumps in the crankcase return the engine oil quickly and...

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Today, Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) is setting standards on the road, with gear changes that take place in milliseconds and with no perceptable interruption in the flow of power to provide faster acceleration and low fuel consumption.

And yet our engineers still were not satisfied – at least, not...

Sport exhaust system

The sport exhaust system of the new 911 GT3 has two front silencers, two catalytic converters and one rear silencer, which discharges into the central twin-tract tailpipes. The large volume of the exhaust system reduces exhaust backpressure and thus increases power output.

The two Lambda sensors of...

Intake manifold

In interaction with the sport exhaust system, the plastic variable intake manifold with two resonance flaps helps to ensure efficient gas cycles and high throughput.

To guarantee high torque and power across a broad engine speed range, the conventional distributor pipe in the new 911 GT3 is...

Idea

The limit is apparently the most exhilarating place to be these days. The final square centimeters have yet to be explored here. This may be where others turn back but, for us, it is only just the beginning – the start of a journey towards new sporty destinations. Indeed, two hundredths of a second...

Aerodynamics and design

Clear rules apply at the limit. One of them being that a sporty design alone is not enough. Each detail must also serve a particular function.

The new front end has further improved the aerodynamics of the center radiator. This is revealed to the eye by the customary 911 GT3 air outlet to the front...
