Porsche is gearing up for the launch of its “most powerful, fastest and most refined 911 GT3 ever” at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The 2010 911 GT3 has an increased engine capacity to 3.8 litres and the naturally-aspirated six-cylinder power unit develops 435 bhp, up 20 bhp over its predecessor.

The boxer engine also offers a significant increase in torque at medium engine speeds, which is particularly significant in everyday motoring.

Performance is accordingly improved; the new GT3 accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and reaches 160 km/h in just 8.2 seconds. Top track speed is 312 km/h.

The car’s driving dynamics are also significantly improved; the new GT3 offers even better grip and stability.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) has enabled Porsche’s engineers to make the springs and anti-roll bars stiffer, thus ensuring even more precise handling in sport mode, while retaining appropriate roll comfort suitable for everyday use in normal mode.

The 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 goes on sale in Canadian dealerships in October. Pricing starts at $138,100.
