Porsche says that the goal of this car was “to further enhance the performance of the high-performance sports car without compromising on everyday usability.” But things were made easier because the road car engineers and those from the Porsche Motorsport department worked together. Andreas Preuninger, the director of the brand’s GT cars, had this to say: “When we have the same engineers who develop our race cars also working on the design of a new GT car for the road, that is the most direct technology transfer I can imagine.”
With such competent minds working on the car, you can be sure that the stunning swan-neck wing on the back of the GT3 is not just there for show. Porsche says that the GT3 spent more than 160 hours in the wind tunnel getting its aerodynamic properties fine-tuned in over 700 simulations. As a result, the new GT3 develops 50 percent more downforce than its predecessor in its base setting and a whopping 150 percent more in max downforce setup.
