There are models that have been designed to make history and succeed, to mark a before and after and above all, generate a unique user experience, regardless of whether you are going to dedicate yourself to competition and speed. Under this premise, there are many brands that have been working on it in recent years, one of them is Porsche, which has set out to take the maximum technology to the highest level and offer a renewed user an idyllic and dream moment. Now, the firm has taken a firm step and has presented the new Porsche 911 GT3 R, a model that has been designed for the most demanding customers.
Its development began in 2019. The priority was to improve the manageability of the car, both for professional drivers and for the so-called gentleman drivers, as well as to optimize the performance for different adjustments of the “Balance of Performance” (BoP). This model is intended to be the reference for those most exclusive customers of a brand that is destined to make history. To do this, they have incorporated top quality materials and its starting price is not especially economical with 511,000 euros, that is, not including the taxes of each region.
Among other elements, they have been working on a new and refurbished engine, to achieve a six-cylinder boxer engine with water cooling, four-valve technology and direct fuel injection. The main novelty is the displacement that, as in the 911 RSR, has increased by 5%, from 3,997 cc to 4,194 cc. This has allowed the power to reach around 565 hp (416 kW). Regarding its gearbox, we find a six-speed sequential with gears and electronic paddles on the steering wheel.
The new suspension has been completely revised, something that helps to enhance the driving, providing greater precision to the steering, reducing the wear of the rear tires and shortens the times of the configuration and set-up. On the front axle, the suspension is entrusted to a state-of-the-art double triangle; on the multi-link rear axle, the KW shock absorbers are now more precise and offer five adjustment settings.
