The prestigious 2014 World Performance Car award has been won by the Porsche 911 GT3, this being the fourth time when the carmaker manages to snap it.
Despite the recall problems for the new Porsche 911 GT3, and the owners gathering up together in order to sue the German based automaker, the sports car is still one of the hottest one money can buy these days and it has been recently voted the 2014 World Performance Car. The jury was made from an international panel of 69 automotive journalists, from more than 20 countries, who picked the 911 GT3 based on their expertise, credibility, influence and experience.
Porsche has introduced the new 911 GT3 back in 2013 and the model has received extended side skirts, a new rear bumper, a fixed rear wing, LED headlights, a center mounted exhaust system and it’s riding on 20-inch forged alloy wheels.
