The GT3 is obviously a specialist 911, designed to go fast with few compromises – yet it works phenomenally well on the road.
Unsurprisingly the ride is firm, but it’s not the compromise you may expect. Leave the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) on its standard setting and the GT3 smooths out road imperfections remarkably well, all the while not detaching the driver from what’s going on. Press the button with a damper icon on it and the GT3 stiffens up like a track machine, although it’s far too taut for the road and transmits every little bump throughout the entire car.
It’s the GT3’s feel and feedback that really stand out. A standard 911’s steering is beautifully weighted and full of information, but the clarity of the content, the consistency of weighting, speed, accuracy and the confidence of the GT3’s Alcantara rimmed wheel brings is just sensational. Suspension and aerodynamic revisions make the GT3’s nose feel more planted too, allowing you to turn it into corners ever faster with the knowledge that it’ll go exactly where you want it to go.
