In Naturally Aspirated form the engine is still good for an impressive 105 horsepower per liter. To handle this increased performance, the 911 GT3's transmission is fitted with transmission oil cooling and injection oil lubrication and has undergone some additional reinforcements.

The most striking visual feature of the new 911 GT3 is its unique rear wing that is largely responsible for excellent directional stability at high speeds and increased downforce for fast corning. Combining a redesigned front apron, the GT3 achieves an outstanding drag coefficient (Cd=0.30) for a car in its class.

Brakes on the GT3 have been improved as well. Front brakes feature six-piston, rather than the previous four-piston monobloc brake calipers and larger discs fitted with Porsche-patented cooling ducts. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) discs, standard on the 911 GT2, can be fitted on request.
