The Porsche 911 has always had a high performance version for every generation of its lineup, geared towards motorsports. And the first example of this for the Type 996 generation model, produced from 1997 to 2002, was the 911 GT3.
The GT3, announced in 1999, was based on the Carrera 4 chassis, which has a higher body rigidity more suited for circuit use. In addition to suspension upgrades, it utilises the powerful calipers and discs from the 911 Turbo to handle higher speed ranges.
The engine utilises what is called a GT1 crank case, a high strength crank case used for race cars for withstanding loads at high rpm. The cylinder head is equipped with the Variocam Plus, a 2 stage variable valve lift mechanism. The 3.6 litre naturally aspirated engine produces 355 BHP, which is 59 BHP higher than the standard 3.3 litre 911.
Initially the 911 GT3 was planned for a limited production run of 1400 cars, but a total of 1889 cars were built in the end as a result of high demand.
This car can be purchased in the Porsche section of Brand Central for 140,000 Credits.
- Long before its official debut in Gran Turismo Sport, this car was intended to appear in Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, but it was omitted due to licensing reasons. The car is still present the game files, but is only accessible with cheat devices.
- It should be noted that the car's body is only present in the NTSC versions of the game. If the player uses cheat codes to access this car in the PAL version, the car's body will default to a Daihatsu MIRA TR-XX Avanzato R '97.
