Greatness in the Rearview

Before we explore the specifications of the 2021 Porsche 911 GT3, let’s take a moment to catch up the newcomers on this nameplate’s storied past.

  • 1950 – Porsche introduces its first production vehicle known as the 356. Lightweight, RWD, and precision dynamics would soon be tested in various races, mainly the Carrera Panamericana.
  • 1964 – Porsche transforms the raw 356 into a more palatable road machine. The Porsche 911 is born but retains the silhouette of its predecessor.
  • 1973 – The Porsche 911 RS opens the door to raceway dominance and a series generated especially for the model known as the GT3 Cup.
  • 2021 – The latest homologation is reintroduced, showcasing the latest capabilities from Porsche.

Many Porsche enthusiasts are already familiar with the marque’s penchant for “Alphabet Soup” nomenclature. The single, double, and triple prefix/suffix designations are enough to keep the most discerning Porsche historian on their toes. For the purpose of this model page, just know that GT stands for “Grand Touring,” the 3 indicates the FIA series regulations, and RS comes from “Racing Sport” (“RennSport” in German). Now that we’re all caught up, let’s continue.

Attacking the Road Ahead

The 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 introduces a first for the 911 family. The all-new double-wishbone front suspension allows for an increased spring rate while maximizing comfort in all applications. A heroic seven-speed PDK automatic allows for potent acceleration with both hands white-knuckling (ahem, gripping) the steering wheel. A six-speed manual transmission is available for those who want it. Either unit enjoys a partnership with a hypnotic 502-hp flat-six 4.0L engine. What will the Porsche 911 GT3 RS horsepower be? We’ll reveal that secret as soon as Porsche allows us to do so.

Don’t expect much in the way of superfluous creature comforts, as they add weight and reduce performance at the track (you are planning to track yours, yeah?). However, you’ll enjoy menacing four-point LED headlights that show you the way. An intuitive 10.9” touchscreen infotainment system allows for smartphone integration, and paddle shifters are mounted at the wheel (on PDK examples).

Custom exterior colors, extended leather interior packs, carbon packs, and deviated coachwork allow for personalization that is anything but typical.

To assist you with your research, we’ve put together some FAQs that many of our collectors have found useful.

How much does a 911 GT3 cost?

This world-class race machine is yours starting at about $161,000.1 Configure her as you will, and you can find a delta on pricing only matched by the GT3’s top speed.

How many Porsche 911 GT3 RS models have been made?

That would depend on which series you were referring to. If you, like many others, are referring to the inaugural liquid-cooled examples from 2003–2005, then 682 units were produced.

How fast is a Porsche 911 GT3?

There are two answers to this question. The first is that Porsche states the top speed for the GT3 is 197 MPH. The second answer is related to the speed at which your nerves get the better of you.

Which is faster: the 911 Turbo or GT3?

The Porsche 911 Turbo has a top speed of 199 MPH, with the Turbo S clocking 205 MPH. The GT3 gets you to 197 MPH. The 911 Turbo family also delivers a slightly quicker 0-60 time than the GT3 (with the Porsche 911 GT3 0-60 being 3.2 seconds). The GT3 RS is on the way soon, and the company claims that revised acceleration times will be the signature of the nameplate.
