Porsche 911 GT3 - Aerodynamics and design

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 of the luggage compartment lid. Together with the wider front spoiler lip, it provides much more downforce at the front axle. All cooling air openings are protected by titanium-colored air intake griles. These are an indication of what lies at the center of the concept: motorsport.

The mirror base of the SportDesign exterior mirrors reflects the v-shaped styling of the wheel spokes and air intake opening in the front end.

Three words sum up the rear: wider, sleeker, sharper. LED taillights emphasise the horizontal contouring of the rear. The central twin tailpipe of the sport exhaust system is painted black.

From afar, the fixed rear wing visibly distinguishes the 911 GT3 from a 911. The wing, wing uprights and rear lid are made of a lightweight synthetic material. The ram-air collector intake is now a single unit.

That’s the downforce and engine air induction prerequisites fulfilled. The aerodynamics have also been enhanced by the new underbody panelling with diffuser function at the rear. The result is considerable downforce for considerable driving stability and a drag coefficient of 0.33.

The new 911 GT3 has an even sturdier and safer stance on the tarmac. Nowhere does it feel more at home than at the limit.
