Recently, Porsche has been making lots of decisions that their fans don’t necessarily agree with. From changing engines in the 911 from air-cooled to water-cooled and moving to turbos from natural aspiration in some newer models, Porsche has been known to make out-of-the-box decisions. This is all about to change however, since Porsche has recently announced that the new 911 GT3 is to be more to their fans’ liking. Rumor has it that this new model will have the option of a six-speed manual and come with a naturally aspirated motor. For true Porsche fans, this is cause for rejoicing.
The 991-generation of the new 911 GT3 is set to have some major changes. The engine will differ from what’s available in the current 911 R and GT3 RS. It will have a 4.0 liter flat six engine. This engine is apparently being sourced from the 911 RSR race car that Porsche makes, as rumored back in November at the LA Auto Show.
This new model is focused on being durable, as the engine is claimed to have done thousands of kilometers with no problems. The rumor is that this car has been driven flat out for long distances to prove the power and safety of the engine.
With the new GT3 comes a choice – a seven speed dual clutch or a six speed manual for the transmission. Either one will be powerful and we’ll definitely keep an eye out for any new details to be released.
