Porsche 911 GT3 (992) Coupe 2021

NEX score 96%

Product Overview

Porsche 992 911 GT3 is a high-performance homologation model of the 992-generation Porsche 911 sports car. It retains the 4.0L naturally-aspirated H6 engine and rear-engine, RWD layout: unlike the 991-gen model, the 992 GT3 is launched with both a 7-speed PDK and a 6-speed manual option for driving enthusiasts.
The 992 GT3 enjoys a completely re-engineered suspension setup. Unlike the base 992-gen 911 models, the GT3 uses double wishbone in the front. The chassis is lowered by 20mm for even better handling on the race track.
The flat-6 engine continues to produce the unique sound track at up to 9000rpm redline.
Outside, the 992-generation has a bolder design that nonetheless retains much of the signature elements of vintage 911 from the 1970s. Inside, convenient technology features of this generation is kept in the GT3.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The GT3 has a monster front end: sharper, more incisive and far grippier than before. When I saw it was 18 seconds quicker around the Nürburgring than the last one, I put a lot of it down to the optional Cup 2Rs. The PDK dual-clutch automatic gearbox is beyond serious criticism too, unless you count the shifter now looking too much like a stick.

Pros
  • Bigger and sharper than the last GT3
  • Faster than ever before
Cons
  • Slightly heavier than the previous GT3 RS

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Porsche's 992 generation is a more focused 911 GT3 than before. Handling backs up its looks, making it a supremely fast and confidence-inspiring track day tool. At £127,820 the GT3 remains something of a bargain when compared with rivals. Its biggest problem is the fact that demand will undoubtedly outstrip supply.

Pros
  • Gorgeous looks

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
On road and track – we've driven it on both – this car is in a league of its own. At £127,820 it's also a bargain – if you can get on the list to buy one. At its peak power of 503bhp the GT3's water-cooled flat six spins at an ear-splitting 8,400rpm.

Pros
  • Impossibly fast and exciting to drive
  • Powerful engine
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • No Clubsport pack
  • Not the most fun to drive

carmagazine[4]

Sentiment Score 93%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The new 992 platform means overall dimensions have inflated too. It's a bigger car than before, yet the new GT3 weighs the same as the last one. The new platform brings its own benefits in extra stiffness, wider tracks and larger wheel wells. 21-inch rear tyres are now standard (they had to be engineered into the previous GT3 RS). The flat-six engine is a development of the existing GT3's 4.0-litre unit.

Pros
  • Bigger, lighter and more agile
  • Bigger and lighter than before
  • More fun to drive
Cons
  • No turbocharger
  • More expensive than before
