The current Porsche 911 GT3 has been a couple of years between us. This sports version of the nine eleven has even given rise to a variant even more radical, the 911 GT3 RS. As you well know these GT3 until now only offered with the automatic gearbox PDK, dual-clutch with seven speeds. But apparently, this fact could change the face of the next generation of the model.
The successor of the Porsche 911 GT3 is expected to come also with a manual gearbox six-speed. The automatic PDK will remain in the catalog, allowing the client to choose their preferred option. So let you see Andreas Preuninger, head of the department GT Porsche, stating that “it is our long-term goal for the client to decide between the two approaches.”
he Also said that “the GT3 is full of systems that have meaning in the track, but for the purists, I may have missed something“. This means that although the automatic change PDK is more sophisticated and faster than one manual, in the brand are willing to to provide this configuration to satisfy those most demanding customers and seek feelings over the performance.
there is Still the question yes the manual shift mode chosen for the next generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 will be the same seven-speed is equipped with the 911 normal or, on the contrary a more traditional six-speed. This last is the one that you have more ballots to be the chosen one. Before the arrival of this new model will come another, the Porsche 911 R, with the same boxer engine six-cylinder and 3.8-liter which fits the GT3. With 475 horsepower and 438 Nm of torque that is transferred to the wheels through a manual gearbox, which will be a delight for purists.
