If you like to make power without turbochargers, Porsche’s new 911 GT3 is a naturally aspirated monster. The 4.0 liter flat-six is essentially the same engine found in the 2016 GT3 RS and 911R. It may not be as wild as the RS model, but it does offer a manual transmission. To see if the new car is worthy of performance tires, Dunlop invited Archie Hamilton Racing to take a few laps on their test track. Goodyear and Dunlop use the Mireval Proving Grounds to ensure their tires are up to any challenge.
We had a 2016 GT3 RS in our showroom for a year, and you can’t deny that it is a street legal race car. In order to appeal to a wider audience, the new GT3 has comfortable seats, more insulation, and real interior door handles instead of pull straps. The GT3 is a daily driver while the RS will always be an automotive axe murderer. The predecessor left the factory wearing Michelin PS Cup 2 tires which are as close to racing rubber as you can legally get. That is why Dunlop bet everything on their new Sport Maxx Race 2. After extensive testing on the ‘Ring by Porsche, they have become the factory supplier for the new GT3. It sends 500 horsepower to the rear wheels only, which produces a top speed of 198 mph. If you are undecided over the new GT3 or a pre-owned GT3 RS for sale, our dealers will be happy to find the right car for you.
