[VIDEO] See Porsche 911 GT3’s active rear-wheel steering

A video posted on YouTube is proving that the new Porsche 911 GT3 has an active rear-wheel steering and it’s showing how this works.

The 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 may have had its “differences” with some fire incidents but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t one of the best vehicles produced by the company and ever since it was announced, fans of the brand were curious to see how the impressive active rear-wheel steering works. Well, the answer to that question can be partially answered by the video posted below and, if you’re one of the lucky few who own such a vehicle, you can always brag about it, especially because the 918 Spyder has it too.

The rear wheels will turn in the opposite direction of the front ones, at speeds up to 50 km/h (31 mph), and after 80 km/h (50 mph), the rear wheels will be turning in the same direction, in order to improve stability. Engineers working with Porsche have installed two actuators which have the job of steering the rear wheels up to 1.5 degrees. Power to the new Porsche 911 GT3 is provided by a 3.8 liter six-cylinder boxer engine, rated at 475 HP (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, and a locking differential, sending power to the rear wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 3.5 seconds and top speed stands at 315 km/h (195 mph).
