Porsche 911 GT3

Street word has it that Porsche is working on a 480bhp Porsche 911 GT3 with PDK transmission. Bring it on!

According to a forum member on Rennlist, the next-generation (991) version of the GT3 will adopt a larger engine, a dual-clutch gearbox and several even more significant changes.

Member, named ‘rosenbergendo’, says he received the information from a Porsche Motorsport exec while attending the recent Daytona 24 Hour race. The source revealed that 991 GT3 will get a 480hp motor – an increase of 45hp – from a larger 4.0 liter flat-six. It will also offer an optional PDK dual-clutch transmission, which is referred to as PDK-S.
