The Manic 992 Porsche 911 GT3, GT3 Touring Arrives In India At Rs 2.5 Crore


Brings motorsport DNA to the road helped by a high-revving 4-litre NA flat-six boxer engine

 

Those longing for a hardcore Porsche 992 911 in India have had their prayers answered,  as Porsche has silently brought in the manic 992 911 GT3 at a price tag of Rs 2.5 crore (ex-showroom, India). It first debuted back in February 2021, and brings over bonkers performance from Porsche Motorsport to the road. It slots in between the 911 Carrera S and the top of the line 911 Turbo S in India. The Touring Package is also available in India for the same price.  

So what makes the 992 911 GT3 manic? For starters, it's got a 4-litre naturally aspirated flat-six boxer motor, borrowed from the GT3 Cup car, making a meaty 510PS and 470Nm, and screams up to 9,000 rpm. You get the option of a 6-speed stick shifter or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Sure, it's a little bit down on the Turbo S’ twin-turbo unit (650PS and 800Nm), but the GT3 can do the 0-100kmph in 3.4 seconds and top out at 318kmph.

 

Power ain’t everything as the 992 911 GT3 also gets performance wizardry such as the 911 RSR racecars’s double-wishbone front suspension racy wheels (20-inch front, 21-inch rear), an adjustable front diffuser and a prominent rear wing.  

It also goes on a heavy diet over the standard model with carbon fibre elements on the dual-scoop hood, rear wing, and the ORVM mirror caps, lighter windows, and a 20kg lighter exhaust. All this combined makes the 991 911 GT3 quite the handy beast on a racetrack, with the track-focused 911 lapping the legendary Nurburgring circuit in 6 minutes and 59.927 seconds, a whopping 17 seconds quicker than before. 

The cabin also gets some motorsport influence with a revised rev counter, and a track screen function where you can keep an eye on the tire pressure, oil pressure, oil temperature, fuel tank level, and water temperature.

 

If the 992 911 GT3 is a tad too extreme, Porsche is also offering the optional Touring package that replaces the gigantic rear wing for a smaller automatic spoiler, and gets a more civilised front bumper. The cabin features a dark theme, with leather wrapped around the steering wheel, gear lever, central armrest, and door pads. The Touring pack does slightly affect performance despite using the same 4-litre flat-six boxer motor, with a 0-100kmph sprint in 3.9 seconds. (0.5 seconds slower). There is no difference in price though.

Sure, the 992 Porsche 911 GT3 belongs in a niche category amongst performance models, but it is as close as you can get to a road-legal 911 racer.
