Porsche Unleashes A Track-Focused 500+HP, 197MPH 911 With The 2022 GT3

In 1999 Porsche unleashed its first GT3 with the first-gen version of the 996, which for the last two decades has represented the pinnacle of 911 performance. And for 2022 that tradition continues with the Stuttgart brand’s newest racetrack-ready 992 Series 911 GT3.

The seventh generation of the car, the 2022 GT3 was developed closely in collaboration with the Porsche Motorsport race team. Mated to a PDK gear selector (and offered with an optional manual transmission) and generating 502hp and 346ft-lbs of torque, the 911 GT3’s naturally aspirated, 4.0L flat-six allows for 3.2 second 0-60mph runs and a top speed of 197mph. And while those numbers are nothing to scoff at, the new GT3’s real strong suit is handling, thanks to a new wider axle that’s equipped with a new multilink suspension configuration. Other upgrades include a carbon fiber hood and carbon-backed racing seats, a full roll cage, a new front fascia and large rear diffuser setup, and an all-new swan-neck-mounted rear wing. Collectively, these tweaks reportedly enabled the 2022 GT3 to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in just 6:59.927 — a whopping 17 seconds faster than the “991.2” GT3. Sold with a special matching “Shark Blue” Porsche Design Chronograph, the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is steeled for release in May of 2021.
