The new generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 will be officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

Good news for Porsche fans who won’t have to wait a long time before seeing the brand new 911 GT3, because the sports car will be officially presented to the public next March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. While the new 911 (991) is getting 350 HP in the base Carrera version, and 400 HP in the Carrera S variant, the new generation of the GT3 is expected to send 450 HP to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch transmission, which will be a first for the GT3.

Downsizing is the key these days and rather than using the old 4.0 liter unit in the 997 GT3 RS 4.0, the new generation of the GT3 will get a naturally aspirated 3.8 liter flat six-cylinder engine under its hood, which will produce a total output of 450 HP, just like we said above. This should translate into a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration of approximately 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (200 mph). Additional details on the sports car are limited and will be announced during the Swiss automotive event next year.
