this sports car is the ultimate combination of pure racing emotion and road driving pleasure. That's why here at Autoviva we decided to gather four reasons why you will love the new 2017 Porsche 911 GT3911 GT3Porsche 911 GT3Germany, 2017 > present6 photos
.

Reason 1 – Faster than ever at Nürburgring

 at the Green Hell however it is still not enough to beat rivals such as the Dodge Viper ACR (7.12,13), the Mercedes AMG GT-R (7.10,92), the Nissan GT-R (7.08,67), the Lamborghini Aventador SV (6.59,73) and the Lamborghini Huracán Performante (6.52,01).

Reason 2 – Perfect for the road and track

If it can drive so fast in Nordschleife, then it is ready to be driven fast in any other road on the planet. That's why we believe that the 911 GT3911 GT3Porsche 911 GT3Germany, 2017 > present6 photos
is yet another proof of Porsche's ability to create an amazing car that can be taken to the limits but that can also be used on a daily basis.

has refined the chassis of the GT3911 GT3Porsche 911 GT3Germany, 2017 > present6 photos
to boost its handling characteristics. Depending on the speed, it steers either in the opposite or the same direction as the front wheels, thereby improving the vehicle’s agility and stability, making it fast on the corners and stable on the straights. 

Reason 3 – More Powerful

The new 911 GT3911 GT3Porsche 911 GT3Germany, 2017 > present6 photos
 is more powerful than before thanks to a 4.0 direct-injection flat-six engine which gets a rigid valvetrain system taken from the GT3 Cup911 GT3 CupPorsche 911 GT3 CupGermany, 2016 > present6 photos
. It also gets new pistons, rings, crank and bearings, as well as a more slippery cylinder liner coating to reduce friction and provide more mid-range torque. It comes with a 500hp output, 460Nm of torque and a 9000rpm redline.
 
With its standard seven-speed double-clutch transmission (PDK) it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 318km/h.

Reason 4 – Six-speed manual transmission is back

GT3 fans weren't very happy when the last 911 GT3911 GT3Porsche 911 GT3Germany, 2017 > present6 photos
dropped the manual transmission option. But with the new model the German brand brings back a six-speed manual transmission option. However, it will only be available until October, when the transmission goes into full production.
 
The new option will allow the high-performance 911 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h.
