The new Porsche 911 GT3 has
been launched in India for Rs 2.31 crore (ex showroom India). The car, powered by a 493 bhp flat-six engine made its
official debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier in 2017. The Porsche 911 GT3
offers the option of both a 7-speed PDK automatic and a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The car was launched in the presence of Pawan Shetty, Director of Porsche India.
In fact, Porsche India had started
accepting bookings for the new Porsche 911 GT3 early this year, right after the
car's global unveiling at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The new Porsche 911 GT3
is basically a performance car and will compete with the likes of the Mercedes-AMG
GT R, Nissan GT-R, and the Audi R8.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 is powered
by a 4-litre six-cylinder boxer engine which churns out 493 bhp and develops
540 Nm of peak torque. The 911 GT3 can hit 0-100 kmph in 3.4 seconds on the
automatic with a top speed of 318 kmph. The 911 GT3 manual, on other hand,
takes 0.5 seconds more to do the 0-100 kmph sprint, but has a higher top speed
of 320 kmph.
The cabin is similar to the
standard 911 but the company is offering a host of customisation options which
includes leather and Alcantara, apart from carbon fibre and aluminium inserts
as optional. There are also three seat options - electrically adjustable
adaptive sport seats, bucket seats with foldable backrest and bucket seats made
out of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CRPF). Other features of the car
include auto climate control, Bose surround sound system and a touchscreen
