The new Porsche 911 GT3 has been revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The update sees the GT3 produce more power, receive new styling and finally get a manual transmission. The naturally-aspirated, motor-sport derived 4.0-liter flat-six engine now delivers 500 hp and 338 lb-ft of torque.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 tips the scales at just 1,430 kg. Equipped with the standard seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission, the new GT3 will accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h in an eye popping 3.2 seconds before topping out at 317 km/h.

Should you opt for the six-speed manual transmission (and its highly recommended that you do), the new GT’s weight drops to 1,413 kg. But it also adds 0.1 seconds to the 0-96 km/h sprint (like you care), before topping out at 318 km/h.

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 also receives a tuned chassis aimed at improving handling and driving dynamics. It gets Rear Axle Steering, a new lightweight carbon fiber rear wing and an updated front fascia for optimised airflow. The rear end gets a new diffuser and new tailpipes.

Inside, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 gets the same steering wheel as seen on the 918 Spyder, sports seats with 18-way electric adjustment and the option of full bucket seats with fixed carbon fiber backrests. The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) also comes standard.
