The completely redeveloped Porsche 911 GT3 shows off its sporty design, benefiting from a new engine, transmission, body, and chassis. When tested on the Nurburgring, the 911 GT3 had an impressive lap time of less than 7 minutes and 30 seconds around the 17-mile track. As an everyday driver the GT3 has active rear-wheel steering for the first time and a direct-injected 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer engine, delivering 475 horsepower. Another change Porsche made for the new GT3 is the switch from three pedals to two. There will still be paddle shifters on the steering wheel for those who want to shift, but Porsche has completely dropped the manual transmission from this model to make room for the dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. Expect the Porsche 911 GT3 to have a starting price of $131,350 when it hits showroom floors later in the year.
