Feast your eyes on the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3

2022 Porsche 911 GT3

Let me introduce you to the newest track weapon from the German automaker Porsche, here is the 2022 911 GT3. Now the Porsche 911 GT3 is developed with big inputs from the Porsche Motorsports division and it clearly showcases that by lapping the famous Nuerburgring-Nordschleife, over 17 seconds quicker than its predecessor. Development driver Lars Kern took just 6:59.927 minutes for a full 20.8-kilometre lap. The shorter 20.6-kilometre track was completed by the 911 GT3 in 6:55.2 minutes.

With that out of the equation, let us talk about what powers the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3, it is a four-liter six-cylinder boxer engine which is based on the 911 GT3 R and produces 503bhp. The 0 to 100km/h time is a claimed 3.4 seconds and can it a top speed of 318km/h. While the 911 GT3 can be had with the famous PDK automatic gearbox, true petrolheads will be pleased to know that Porsche will offer a six-speed manual transmission too (#savethemanuals).

Under skin, Porsche claims that they have managed to keep the weight of the 2022 911 GT3 at par as its previous generation by adding lightweight components such as a front bonnet made of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), lightweight glass windows, light-alloy wheels and a sports exhaust system which reduces the weight by no less than ten kilograms. The overall weight of the 911 GT3 with its manual gearbox is 1,418 kilograms, while the PDK version comes in at 1,435 kilograms.

So to answer the most important question you might have in your mind, will it be coming to India? Um, frankly Porsche haven’t indicated as to when can we expect to see the 2022 911 GT3 on Indian soil, but looking at how quite a few units of the previous generation sold in India and how plenty of supercar owners are tracking their vehicles, it wouldn’t be surprising if we do see Porsche bring the 911 GT3 to India.
