Developed for the track and adopted by some of the most successful GT3 race teams, the first year 911 GT3 was a purpose-built track car that tolerates the street. The long list of victories its Cup model cousin has delivered to its owners is a testament to what you can expect from the GT3’s performance. Out of the box, the GT3 produces 380 horsepower and 285 foot-pounds of smooth and precise torque. That’s enough to make 0-60 in less than five seconds and 0-100 in just under ten. In the GT3, Porsche test driver Walter Rohrl lapped the Nürburgring in 7 minutes 56 seconds, setting the fastest lap for a production car in 2004. Some say this model is a return to a less sedate 911, or that it’s capable of more than the average driver can handle. But when a racing class is part of the car’s name, shouldn’t that be notice enough?
