The latest generation of Porsche's ultimate performance car is the 911 991. This GT3 version has an all-new direct injection 3.8 litre flat 6 engine which produces 468 BHP and revs to 9,000 RPM. Interestingly, Porsche have not opted for a turbocharged setup, unlike many other rival manufacturers have in recent times. Instead, the engine is Naturally Aspirated and still manages to deliver thrilling performance figures, with the top speed a shade under 200mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.5 seconds. Porsche's 7-speed PDK gearbox is the only transmission option available, with reduced ratios and there is also a "Paddle Neutral" function, which is a basic form of Launch Control and can be used whilst the car is on the move, meaning power oversteer at low speeds can be achieved.
As well as the steering now being electrically assisted, the 991 GT3 benefits from unique computer software, a stiffened-up front end and at the back there is a new electro-mechanical rear wheel steering system. This turns the back wheels in the opposite direction, or in the same direction to those at the front, to either improve response or increase stability, depending on how fast you are travelling. With front-end grip in abundance, the recipe for this most recent instalment of Porsche's iconic sports car is one that is sure to thrill and excite.
