A Porsche 911 GT3 from the new generation has recently burned down in Switzerland for no obvious reason.
If you thought that buying a Porsche instead of a Lamborghini or a Ferrari will save you from spontaneous combustion, you’re wrong, because the German sports car is apparently very flammable. According to police reports, the Porsche 911 GT3 pictured above, from the new generation, has been driven on the highway when a strange noise was heard from the engine compartment. The driver has seen smoke and oil ran out of the engine. Moments later, flames ate up the Porsche. Happily no one was injured in the incident.
The Porsche 911 GT3 has been officially unveiled almost a year ago, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model in question has extended side skirts, big spoilers, a fixed rear wing, a new rear bumper, LED headlights, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, a center mounted dual exhaust system and much more. The sports car is powered by a 475 HP (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque 3.8 liter boxer engine. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.5 seconds and top speed of the vehicle stands at 315 km/h (195 mph).
