With the annual Geneva Motor Show getting underway today, we continue to be lavished with pure, unadulterated automobile porn. Hot on the heels of McLaren’s 720S supercar, Porsche has upped the ante even further with its 2018 911 GT3.
Notably, the updated model comes with a choice of transmissions: seven-speed PDK or — praise the Lord — manual. The racer’s beastly engine is capable of producing 500HP and 339 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to go from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and on to a 198 mph top speed. Making the vehicle even faster is a redesigned chassis, carbon fiber wings, and Rear Axle Steering that can turn the rear wheels in (or out of) sync with the fronts.
Inside, the whip comes with two carbon-backed bucket seats in the front — the option of conventional sports seats also available. Porsche’s latest infotainment system supports Apple Car Play and syncs with Porsche’s Track Precision App, allowing drivers to track data from their mobile phone.
Such a work of art doesn’t come cheap, however. The car arrives at U.S. dealers by fall and is priced at $143,600.
Staying with speedy rides, Mercedes-AMG has just introduced its 4-door, 805HP GT Concept.
