In an exclusive coup of automotive espionage, Viknesh Vijayenthiran of High Gear Media has obtained a video of the new Porsche 911 GT3 racing around a track in Nürburgring, Germany.
Not expected to be unveiled until the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March, the 2013 911 GT3 is expected to boast a 3.8 liter V6 capable of 450 hp and a top speed of 200 mph. With an anticipated weight of 3,075 pounds, it will be 88 pounds lighter than the 2012. Traveling from 0-60 in four seconds, the transmission is expected to be a seven-speed, dual-clutch – the only option likely to be offered. Such a move will not likely anger Porsche owners, considering that over half of them like to relax by unleashing their cars on the track, according to the company.
The first GT version of the 911 debuted in 1999 and went on to dominate the American Le Mans Series, 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 24 Hours of Nürburgring six times. The first street legal GT hit the market in 2006. Design changes over the years include front dive planes which give additional downforce up front.
