New Porsche 911 GT3 Touring

Porsche recently revealed the iconic 911 GT3 Touring, an ‘incognito mode’ take on the 911 GT3. The car shows no signs of its sheer power and abilities.

It looks like a normal Porsche 911, probably an entry-level model with no rear seats. However, under the bonnet, a high-revving 4-lt six-cylinder boxer engine can deliver 510 PS of power through a 6-speed manual or, for the first time, 7-speed PDK automatic transmission.

Go for the automatic option. Manual gearboxes are neither as quick nor efficient as PDK automatic gearboxes. For me, the manual gearbox is something unnecessary in today’s car world.

The 911 GT3 Touring is not for people who want to show off; it’s for people who would love to experience the raw Porsche 911 experience without any fixed-wing or aero kits. One of the best aspects of the GT3 Touring is its retractable rear wing – it appears when it should appear.

You won’t have so many toys with the GT3 Touring, and you’ll have less comfort compared to the original 911, but the GT3 Touring has a purpose! I’m not sure how many grand touring experiences you can have with this car, but it will still be a great car to drive on long journeys.

Is it worth buying? Yes, and as you expected, it’s more expensive with fewer features!

Autosport International 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS #asi18

I know it has been a long time since the Autosport International 2018; however, I kept the photos secret on purpose to give you a cool flashback.

Porsche revealed their hardcore monster, the 911 GT2 RS at the Autosport this year. Officially, this car managed to go around the Nürburgring in 6 min 47.3 sec! This figure will probably sound meaningless if you just drive the GT2 RS around town.

In case you haven’t realised, the 911 GT2 RS has 700 HP (3.8 lt turbo flat-six boxer engine) and sends all those horses to its rear wheels. Hopefully, the engine is on top of the rear wheels; you won’t have lots of wheel spin but you will have some!

The acceleration to 100 km/h is in 2.8 sec, thanks to the PDK. You can’t achieve this via manual gearbox. And the top speed is 340 km/h.

Inside, it is not the most comfortable Porsche you could ever experience. The GT2 RS is designed for the track; however, it is not as hardcore as the GT3, it does still have some daily driveability, and you have the air con, sat nav, Apple Car connectivity and so on.

However, it wouldn’t be the perfect car for doing a weekly shop at your local supermarket.

Despite this, deep inside you wish you had one and could drive all day :)

Porsche 911 Carrera T

Porsche recently announced the twenty-first Porsche 911 model to the market. Yes, there are 21 different Porsche 911s that you can buy. You name it, they have it in their vehicle range.

The latest addition to the range is the Porsche 911 Carrera T. It is based on the 911 T from 1968, and Porsche has decided to revive it! As you would expect, the 911 T follows the heritage of being a lightweight Porsche. Basically, you will pay more for less car. You can even remove the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system – aka your navigation and stereo system – to save weight.

It has a 3-lt flat six twin turbo 370 engine with only a rear wheel drive option (with a mechanical rear limited slip differential). You can either have a manual or PDK gearbox. To save cost, you will have literally no comfort at all.

It is not a super-fast car actually. 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 sec with the PDK gearbox with a top speed of 290 km/h.

Overall, you are getting a unique Porsche 911 that is not really fast. However, if you wish to experience the emotional appeal of the 911 T model, this would be your car.
