2014 Porsche 911 GT3 [w/video]

The Bearable Lightness Of Being Start with a standard Porsche 911 Carrera and its 350-horsepower, 3.6-liter flat six-cylinder engine. Bore a crepe-thin slice of aluminum from each cylinder to get to 3.8 liters, add a wider track out back and two extra exhaust pipes and voila, you can append an S to the Carrera's name. Hang two sets of wet, multi-disc clutches along its spine and you can make that a 4, or a 4S. Bolt on two forced-induction compressors and piping, add two fender vents and comically wide rear tires and you've redeemed your ticket to a Turbo. Increase the boost pressure and... Read More

    Spy Shots: Porsche 911 GT2 facelift caught 'Ring running
    1271790060

    Our spies have just captured the slightly revised Porsche 911 GT2 doing what it does best – storming around a track (the Nürburgring, specifically). The removal of foglamps and a more pronounced chin spoiler set the hardcore 911 apart from its lesser Turbo brethren, and rest assured, the big GT2 wing is still intact. Official details haven't ...

    The latest round of Porsche 911 spy shots showed the coupe undergoing cold weather testing, and now our frost-bitten shooters have caught the convertible ahead of its reveal later this year. Being a 911, the stylistic changes won't be revolutionary, but we've gotten word from insiders that active aerodynamics are part of the package (think the Ferrari ...

    1264543080

    No other automaker subscribes to the "evolution, not revolution" idiom more than Porsche, and the next generation 911 will benefit from yet another styling refresh later this year in the form of some subtly tweaked sheetmetal and a new set of LED indicators that join the current model's daytime running lights. Although the front-mounted LEDs are the ...

Even Porsche has gotten into the green game with both diesel and hybrid options for its Cayenne along with an expected hybrid powertrain for its Panamara range. Could that fuel-saving technology make a move closer to Porsche's sportscar roots? ...

    It must be slightly frustrating buying a new Porsche 911 these days, because there always seems to be something newer and better coming around the corner. Buy a new Carrera, and within a couple of months there's a new Turbo or GT3 you want more. Wait for the Turbo or GT3 and there's a new GT2 coming out. Wait for the GT2 and already it's outdated because ...

    With the coupe, cabrio, targa and turbo variants of the latest Porsche 911 already out on the road, Zuffenhausen is preparing similar updates for its flyweight road rocket, the GT3 RS. Test mules have been spotted roaming the French alps, which in this season would probably be the last place we'd want to drive a rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive track car. But ...

    The next Porsche 911, the 998, is doing the rounds on German public roads. By the looks of it, the headlights are more vertical than the current model, and based on what's covered, the front and rear bumpers and valances will see the majority of the work. Intriguingly, the side mirrors on the car are from the 993, which we imagine are for testing purposes ...

    Coming to the meaty part of the 911 model line revamp, the 2010 GT3 RS has been spotted after some time in wardrobe wearing slightly different clothes. These are subtle alterations, with LED daytime running lights, bigger intakes, a new air dam lip up front and revised taillights out back.

    Hardcore Porschephiles rejoice, for Stuttgart is preparing a new 911 GT3. It should come as no big surprise since the entire 911 range has once again received a facelift, so following the Carrera, Carrera 4 and Targa models, we can expect a new Turbo, a new GT3 and a new GT2. Apparently the naturally-aspirated hardcore model is the next up to bat, if these ...

As is often the case with Porsche, it's hard to discern any substantive differences between this newest version of the GT3 RS and the current model, but when ...

    Porsche's über 911, the 2008 GT2, has been spotted by spy photographers undergoing testing ahead of its launch at September's Frankfurt Auto Show, and this time on U.S. soil. The near-complete test mule was totally undisguised and has revealed important clues as to what the final car will look like. A key difference of the GT2 over the lesser Turbo is ...

    While "Porsche" and "Nürburgring" seem to go hand-in-hand, "911 Turbo Cabrio" and "Sweden in March" don't necessarily seem to be as good a match. They're more like the odd couple, really. However, if said Porsche is still not quite ready for prime time, then doing some winter weather testing in REALLY cold weather makes sense. Plus, it doesn't hurt ...

    It hasn't been very long since we last brought you some spy shots of the freshened 911, but when another pic popped up, we felt we had to share. After all, this is our favorite rear-engined sports car. Returning even closer to its roots, the two-beam round headlamps and larger air inlets look very 993 Turbo. The cleaner look should be an improvement that ...

However, World Car Fans have procured a half-dozen shots of the 997 GT2 in action and after looking at the photos and reading the specs, we can't imagine a reason not to bring this newest 911 to market.
