Inside the cabin, the Porsche 911 GT3 gets touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, and Bose sound system. Along with all this, the car also gets three types of seats - electrically adjustable adaptive sport seats, bucket seats with foldable backrest and bucket seats made out of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CRPF).
Under the hood, the new Porsche 911 GT3 gets a 4-litre six-cylinder boxer engine that churns out 493 bhp and 540 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed PDK automatic or 6-speed manual gearbox. The automatic transmission variant can reach the speed of 318 Km/h and can sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds while the manual variant has top speed of 320 Km/h and can hit 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds.
The new car by the German automaker will be going up against the likes of the Nissan GT-R, Audi R8 and Mercedes-AMG GT R in India.
