Porsche has officially unveiled the 911 GT3 at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The GT3 distinguishes itself from the standard 911 with a more aggressive front bumper and optional LED headlamps. Looking at the rear, the rear fenders are wider and the GT3 gets a new rear bumper featuring a centre-mounted dual exhaust system. The GT3 rides on 20-inch forged alloy wheels. The interior has the option of leather or Alcantara seats and an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel with red stitching.
Powering the GT3 is 3.8L 6-cylinder boxer engine which produces 475 bhp and 324 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This is enough to take it from 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 195 mph.
For the first time in a Porsche, the GT3 will feature a rear-wheel steering system, where the rear wheels move in the same direction or opposite direction to improve its handling agility.
