Porsche Malaysia today launched the seventh generation Porsche 911 GT3 at the Sepang International Circuit.
Now open for pre-order in Malaysia, the new 911 GT3’s price starts from RM1,766,244.00 with SST exemption.
Powering the all-new 911 GT3 is a naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine which develops 510 PS and 470 Nm of maximum torque.
Weighing only 1,435 kilograms when equipped with the standard 7-speed PDK, the 911 GT3 is capable of a top speed of 320 km/h, making it considerably faster than the previous 911 GT3 RS.
Additionally, enthusiasts can configure their 911 GT3 with a 6-speed manual GT sports gearbox, or opt for the GT3 Touring Package at no additional cost.
The most obvious difference with the Touring Package is the omission of the fixed rear wing of the 911 GT3. In its place is an automatically extending rear spoiler.
The silver-coloured trim strips made of high-gloss anodised aluminium on the side windows are another distinguishing feature, while the front end is painted completely in the exterior colour.
The rear lid grille features a unique ‘GT3 Touring” logo, which sits above the signature Porsche lettering, also finished in silver.
Almost all optional equipment available for the 911 GT3 can be specified in combination with the Touring Package, including all exterior and wheel colours, LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS), Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), lift system on the front axle, seat variations, assist systems, audio systems and the Sport Chrono package.
For the first time, the car features a double-wishbone front suspension layout taken from the Le Mans-winning 911 RSR race car, with specific geometry and calibration changing the car’s turn-in behaviour.
The aerodynamics with swan-neck rear wing mounting and striking diffuser are also from the 911 RSR, allowing for approximately 50% more downforce than before without affecting the drag coefficient.
The manually-adjustable rear wing and diffuser elements can also be set to increase aerodynamic downforce by up to 150% to assist drivers in managing higher cornering speeds.
Inside, the cockpit is designed in line with the current 992 generation, but the GT3-specific instrument cluster features a central rev counter, which goes up to 10,000rpm, flanked by two high-resolution 7.0-inch displays featuring the new track screen.
Like all 992 generation 911 models, infotainment in the 911 GT3 is centred on a high-resolution 10.9-inch touchscreen display featuring the latest Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with online navigation and Porsche Connect Plus. This system also supports the Porsche Track Precision App.
