At the Rolex 24 at Daytona last month Porsche killed the competition in the GT Daytona (GTD) class with the rip-roaring 911 GT3 R. Now that same race-winning competition is making its way into the marque's latest (barely) street legal sports car, the 2018 911 GT3.
Just unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the stunning speedster features a new naturally aspirated, i.e. non-turbo, high-reving 4.0 liter flat-six engine good for 500 hp and 339 lb.-ft. of torque based on the one now used in all 911 race cars, including the GT3 R and 911 RSR.
That kicks it from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 197 mph with a PDK transmission as standard, though for purists Porsche will also offer the GT3 with a six-speed manual transmission.
Want one? It'll run you $143,000 and change and you'll have to wait until fall. But that's a small price to pay for owning the road....
