A 500hp, naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six mated to a proper manual transmission.
No, you’re not reading the specs to the sought after 911 R – Porsche has just released the 911.2 GT3 to the world, a refresh of the track-focused favorite that has driving enthusiasts twitching with excitement. A traditional manual gearbox will now be available alongside the machine gun-fast PDK dual-clutch (0-60mph in 3.2 seconds for the PDK, 3.8 seconds for the M/T).
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that this new and improved car won’t become an instant favorite again, but what about the 911 R? Hasn’t this new GT3 just completely killed the limelight the 911 R has been basking in ever since its announcement? 911 R owners aren’t going to care as their investment has probably tripled in value since they picked their cars up at the dealer, but that said, the model just became just a little less special today.
