Porsche 911 GT3

The new generationPorsche 911 has started to show its new lines with the unveiling of the standard Carrera models. And Porsche will continue with the unveiling, until we will finally see the top versions if the 911 line-up. The GT3 version, set to be unveiled in 2013, is the first one that comes with a sad news: the company will only offer a PDK gearbox for it.

Porsche is currently testing both both manual and PDK versions, but according to August Achleitner, the 911 project chief, only one model will be offered in the production version and the PDK is the favorite one.

This decision has inspired by the launch of thePorsche Turbo S : "When we launched the 911 Turbo S, we did not offer a manual, but we have not had a single complaint," and the GT3 is the next logical step.

Also, Achleitner confirmed that both GT2 and GT3 will be offered with the new electromechanical steering system that has been seriously criticized for offering less driver feedback than a traditional hydraulic setup. According to him all their race drivers prefer it and the company decided to offer it.

It is Porsche so whether it has a gearbox or not, I’m expecting a great and sleek performance from it. All this installments of unveiling makes me really anticipated with each innovation.

Porsche 911 GT3 has been very busy with unveiling of their models. Why was the next GT3 was offered with a dual-clutch transmission? I think it was the breaking news for this month. smiley

Whether it has a manual gearbox of none, it’ll be still the best of its kind. Porsche 911 was powerful on the road. Try to look at the outputs.

This model appears to be strong on the road. It started to show its line-up of being a standard concept. It could have a lot of features to look up, and that’s on a high-tech mode.
