2010 Porsche 911 GT3

The revised GT3 is out - an enlarged 4L engine with 435 hp and hits 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 193 mph.

I think this one is a marked departure from the last in terms of looks although these shots are of horrible quality.

Why is Porsche destroying wonderful things? Those tail lights are hideous.

But it has improved in other areas.

Looks purposeful. Other than that we'll see.

Stop looking at me! Look at me! Stop looking at me!
Maybe its just the setting, but I feel like with the re-rounded lights and the toned down fascia, Porsche is trying to revive a certain look that served them well in decades (centuries?) past.

Bigger pics.

Porsche is definitely a weird company. They make the Cayenne and yet they insist with manuals for their most focused cars.

I love that interior. So unfussy and focused unlike all these ridiculous gadget filled ones you see these days. so refreshing seeing a plain manual in a high end car too.

By the way, there are sources which say it has a 3.8 litre engine, not a 4 litre.

I'm not a big Porsche fan (certainly not lately), but I've always loved the GT3 . . . until now. It's given up the sleek, assured look of the previous one for an overly aggressive, almost Tuner look.

I guess nothing is sacred at Porsche.

You´re right. German Testberichte, Tuning, Motorsport, PKW Reifen, KFZ Teile, Autos neu kaufen, Gebrauchtwagen verkaufen | auto motor und sport confirms that. The engine had a 200 ccm enlargement from 3.6 to 3.8 litres.

By the way, i really love that car - even in red.
