Like white lightning, you shift seamlessly as the road evaporates under the wheels; yet at the same time, you are one with the road with an interconnection that yields complete control regardless of the speed. In the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3, the best in racing heritage has been placed in your grasp. From its 3.6 liter engine with 415 HP and a redline at 8400 RPM, to an enhanced electronic traction control system, all the necessary tools are in place for you to own the road the way you want. The GT3 even has “zero lift” as its aerodynamic features create its own downforce enabling you to hug the road at every turn.

Originally designed in 1999 as the first water-cooled high performance racing car, the 996 platform Porsche 911 was indeed impressive. In 2006, the 997 platform took things a step further with upgraded suspension, a lighter chassis, and installation of a short shifter for smoother shifting ability. Even the tachometer illuminates to signal optimal shifting timing for the driver at relevant engine speeds. Everything is geared to maximize performance. And while Porsche reports a 0-60mph time of 4.1 seconds and a maximum speed of 193 mph, independent performance testing has suggested these to be modest with suspected specs below 4 seconds and above 200 mph respectively.
With a white exterior and ebony interior garnished with Alcantera-lined steering wheel and seats, the GT3’s classic look compliments its classic performance. From inside out, the GT3 is an expression of luxury and style. Take a dose of adrenalin by strapping yourself into the Porsche 911 GT3. Its performance and elegance is clearly unmatched.
