Porsche has taunted our desires with two video trailers for its new track-focused GT3. Packing 475 horsepower from its 3.8-liter flat-6, the 911 GT3 sings through its 9,000-rpm engine range as it accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds on up to a 195-mph top speed. For the first time, the 911 GT3 eschews its former six-speed manual transmission for a new seven-speed PDK–Porsche Doppelkupplungs Getriebe, or dual-clutch gearbox–hitting shifts in the blink of an eye.
Its interior is as minimalistic as you’d expect in a $120,000 supercar. That is to say that it comes with suede-covered, power racing buckets and a navigation system. Standard is a 4.6-inch TFT display in the gauges.
More than the racy spoiler or the revised bumpers, we can’t help but listen to that wail coming from its engine and get a little weak in the knees. This car isn’t your normal South Beach Porsche; it’s a race-ready Goliath of velocity. After watching these two trailers for the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3, we’re creating a Kickstarter to get one. You should, too.
