Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2014)

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.

2.Has rear-wheel drive
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2014)

Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

3.Has four-wheel drive
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2014)

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2014)

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

5.Has fully independent suspension
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

6. longer basic warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

3. lower coefficient of drag

0.29Cd

0.31Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

1. larger engine size

3.4l

3.8l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.

2. higher maximum torque

440Nm

700Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.

3. more horsepower

475hp

560hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.

4.Has Stop-Start system
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)
Porsche 911 Turbo S (2014)

A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

5. better fuel economy (highway)

8.9l/100 km

11.8l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
