Porsche 911 GT3 Fitted With New Engine, Sports Car Feels Like a Race Car

The new Porsche 911 GT3 sports car comes even fiercer with engine updates through long testing of performance on both racetracks and highways.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 is packed with technical highlights with one goal of improving yet another high-performance high-performance sports car without sacrificing everyday usability.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 engine is 4 liters long and has passed the long test of more than 22,000 hours on the test rig.

The engine responds excitedly when the gas pedal is pressed,” said Thomas Mader, Project Manager of GT Road Car Engines Porsche, in a statement quoted from Antara today, Saturday, April 10, 2021.

The engine is based on the GT3 911 GT3 R racing car racing engine and is also virtually unchanged in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. At 375 kW (510 PS), the outputis 10 PS higher than its predecessor GT3 model.

It delivers its maximum power at 8,400 rpm and the electronic limiter only cuts off outstanding rotation capability at 9,000 rpm. The maximum torque of the Porsche 911 GT3 street sports car has also been increased from 460 to 470 Nm.

Andreas Preuninger, Director of Porsche’s GT Model Line, explained that the engineer who designed the GT car for the highway also developed the Porsche race car.

Porsche is improving the aerodynamics of this latest 911 GT3 street sports car. For the first time, the hind wings are installed. The shape of the gooseneck mount used is the same as the GT 911 RSR race car and the 911 GT3 Cup race car.

“It’s the most direct transfer of technology,” he said

The new design on this Porsche 911 GT3 sports car leads to reduced flow loss. Not only does it increase downforce,but it also results in a balanced negative lifting condition along with a number of other detailed measurements.

Porsche Aerodynamics engineer Mathias Roll explained Porsche developed the new 911 GT3 aerodynamics in about 700 simulations and 160 hours in wind tunnels.

The angle of inclination of the hind wings can be adjusted in 4 positions. Dfront iffusor can also be set to four positions.

According to Roll, the new Porsche 911 GT3 sports car produces 50 percent more downforce than its predecessor at 200 km/h. In settings with maximum downforce, the increase reaches more than 150 percent.
