  • 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 pricing and specification
  • Available to order now, ahead of second-half 2021 deliveries

  • Priced from $369,700 before on-road costs

The 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 is now available to order in Australia, ahead of first local deliveries in the second half of the year.

Priced from $369,700 before on-road costs, the new 911 GT3 slots into the Porsche coupe range between the $291,800 Carrera 4S, and the $396,500 Turbo (all quoted prices exclude on-road costs).

Standard features on Australian models – many of which are optional in Europe – include tinted LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Lighting Plus, auto-dimming mirrors with rain sensors, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, a front axle lift system, tyre sealant, an onboard electric air compressor, DAB+ digital radio and metallic paint.

Other standard inclusions comprise four-way power-adjustable 'sport seats plus', 20-inch front and 21-inch rear centre-locking alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, a 10.9-inch central infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and satellite navigation, dual digital instrument displays, and push-button start.

Powering the 911 GT3 is a 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six petrol engine, sending 375kW and 470Nm to the rear wheels through a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmissions – with either gearbox option available for no additional cost.

Porsche claims 0-100km/h sprint times of 3.4 and 3.9 seconds for the PDK and manual, towards top speed of 318km/h and 320km/h respectively. Peak power is achieved at 8400rpm, ahead of a 9000rpm redline.

A full adjustable aerodynamics package including a front splitter, rear diffuser and swan-neck rear wing is standard – which claims to develop up to 150 per cent more downforce at 200km/h than the old GT3 – while the front axle now features race-derived double-wishbone suspension for the first time.

408mm front and 380mm rear steel brakes are standard-fit, with 410mm six-piston front and 390mm four-piston rear carbon-ceramic brakes available as a $19,290 option when fitted with yellow callipers, or $21,020 with black callipers.

Other options include the $1000 Chrono package, no-cost Club Sport Package (which adds a half roll-cage and six-point driver's seat harnesses), and a lightweight carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic roof for $7470.

Alongside the Australian pricing announcement, Porsche has released details of how the new 911 GT3 was designed and developed.

Milestones and achievements across the multi-year development process including 700 aerodynamic simulations, over 160 hours in the wind tunnel, 600 emissions tests in order to meet strict WLTP regulations and 22,000 hours on the engine test rig.

Test drivers also covered 5000km around the Nardo test track at a constant speed of 300km/h, stopping only for fuel.

The 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 will reach the first Australian customers' driveways in the second half of this year.
