2022 Porsche 911 GT3: Street-Legal Track Weapon

2022 Porsche 911 GT3: Street-Legal Track Weapon

Published: March 4, 2021 | By: American Luxury Staff

The news from Porsche recently looks ahead to the 2022 model year. The company has revealed the redesigned 911 GT3, which is scheduled for first deliveries in the final quarter of the year.

The car is something of a harbinger, then. It looks the part of one. Its redesigned rear wing is driver-adjustable, and the car’s front and rear aero has been revised. The model’s newly designed double-wishbone front suspension is borrowed from the 911 RSR. Dry-sump lubrication and extensive use of lightweight materials also distinguish the model for 2022.

The R-designation 4L flat six carries over into this new version of the street-legal track-inspired daily driver and, in keeping with the spirit of this road-legal model’s lineage, it’s the same engine used in the GT3 Cup.

The horsepower is up a token amount over the last generation—it has progressed from 500 to 502, a modicum—but the boxer’s 346 pound-feet of torque remains generationally stable. The six-speed manual transmission remains an option, thankfully; the default continues to be the seven-speed PDK with its 3.2-second 0-60. The 2022 911 GT3 can hit 60 in 3.7 seconds with a stick, a .2-second improvement over the elder version, respectively. The top speed is 197 MPH for PDK transmission, 199 MPH for manual.

Pricing information has not yet been revealed.
