For additional protection on the racetrack, a Clubsport package (page 68) is available as a no-cost option. The latest in communication technology is also included with the standard CDR-30 audio system or the optional Porsche Communication Management (PCM, page 77). The 911 GT3. Developed from the heart so that you do not have to make compromises.
Along ideal lines. The aerodynamics and design of the 911 GT3.
In motorsport there are clear rules. One of these is to push the boundaries of performance. An attribute that is clearly reflected in the exterior of the 911 GT3 with a design that follows function in every respect.

At the rear, distinctive LED lights are drawn right into the wing and taper outwards. Unmistakable just like the fixed bi-plane wing. This provides aerodynamic downforce and greater driving stability, even at the highest speeds. It is made from light-weight synthetic material and the angle of incidence on the upper wing profile can be adjusted for use on the racetrack. Embossed on the side plates of the rear wing: 3.8. A
reference to the engine size and a clear indication of its power. As the cars speed increases, two ram-air collector intakes on the engine lid help to force additional air into the intake manifold and engine compartment. Another distinctive feature of the 911 GT3 is the central, black dual-tube tailpipe of the sports exhaust system.
The combined effect of all of these aerodynamic refinements is a low drag coefficient of just 0.32. Also, greater downforce, better aerodynamic balance, excellent road-holding characteristics, better directional stability and improved driving safety. Our core motorsport values can be both felt and seen in the new 911 GT3.
The result: higher levels of power and torque over a wider engine speed range.
Sports exhaust system.
The lightweight sports exhaust system in the 911 GT3 models consists of two front silencers, two catalytic converters and one rear silencer. The exhaust on the
911 GT3 intake manifold 911 GT3 sports exhaust system
911 GT3 is painted black, whereas on the 911 GT3 RS it is made from reduces exhaust back pressure to increase power. Each of the two banks of cylinders has its own separate exhaust tract. The position and design of the catalytic converters enable rapid warm-up to ensure effective emissions control.
Thanks to its advanced exhaust technology, both 911 GT3 models international emissions standards such as Euro 5 in Europe and LEV II in the USA. An oxygen sensor system monitors the composition of the exhaust gas individually for each bank of cylinders. An additional oxygen sensor in each exhaust section monitors the conversion of pollutants in each catalytic converter.*
What that means for you is more power but not at the expense of the environment.
Rule no. 1 on the racetrack: Dont lose time unnecessarily. Transmission.
We have certainly kept to that rule, as the six-speed manual gearbox in the 911 GT3 models has been designed especially for the high demands of motorsport. This lightweight gearbox is highly efficient and the gear-lever throw is short and precise, enabling fast and accurate gearshifts. In conjunction with the friction-optimised cable pull shift, the gearbox provides an extremely high level of precision and capacity. Unlike the 911 GT3, which has a dualmass flywheel, the new 911 GT3 RS uses a single-mass flywheel. It is lighter and therefore increases engine dynamics. The engine turns even more easily in its upper speed ranges with a somewhat higher noise level.

The gear ratios are perfectly matched to the two 3.8-litre engines. In the new 911 GT3 RS the ratio of gears 1 to 5 is about 13 % shorter than in the 911 GT3, for an even more dynamic power development. Maximum speed is reached in 6th gear.
Robust steel heat-resistant baulk rings on gears three to five enable a precise gearshift action even under extreme loads. Cooling is provided by an additional oil-towater heat exchanger and spray lubrication. Both of these features are essential for durability in endurance racing conditions.

The new 911 GT3 RS and the 911 GT3 | Chassis
Magnetorheological fluid in an unmagnetised state
We've always considered the laws of physics a challenge. Thankfully our engineers havent. The new dynamic engine mount system.
Adding to driving dynamics: the dynamic engine mount system is available as an option in the 911 GT3 and is standard in the 911 GT3 RS. This electronically controlled system minimises noticeable oscillations and vibrations in the whole drive system, particularly the engine. The engines in the 911 GT3 models are bolted to the body using two mounts. According to Newtons law of inertia, a body will continue to move in a uniform straight line unless it is made to change its direction by a force acting upon it. Put more simply: when you are driving into a bend, the vehicle will follow your steering The dynamic engine mount system minimises this effect. The steering angle, longitudinal and lateral but, at first, the mass of the engine wont. This means that the rear of the vehicle is pushed outwards after a time lag because of the inert forces from the engines mass acting on it.
Magnetorheological fluid in a magnetised state
Dynamic engine mount system
acceleration values are constantly recorded by sensors and the stiffness of the two engine mounts is changed automatically according to the driving style. This is achieved using a magnetisable (magnetorheological) fluid and an electrically generated magnetic field. The magnetisable particles align with each other and the fluids viscosity changes. This alters the stiffness and absorption of the engine mounts: softer for greater
comfort and less vibration when driving normally, harder for a more direct driving feel when driving more sportily. Similar characteristics to those of the 911 GT3 race cars where the engine is bolted directly to the body. The dynamic engine mount system also reduces the vertical oscillations of the engine when accelerating under full load. The result: greater and more uniform
force on the rear axle, increased traction and better acceleration. In everyday driving and on the racetrack, this means more stability in all driving situations.
Thanks to the very stiff connection between the chassis and body, there is more exact wheel location, so better handling and turn-in.

The connection between the heart and the mind. Transferred to the car and the road. Chassis.
The chassis of the 911 GT3 and the new 911 GT3 RS is designed to meet the high demands of motorsport. The cars are therefore approximately 30 mm lower than the 911 Carrera. Their lightweight construction offers major weight savings, not least in terms of unsprung mass, for exceptional agility, a high level of safety and inherent stability, especially when cornering. The front axle has McPhersontype struts with the wheels mounted individually on trailing arms and wishbones. The springs and shock absorbers have been individually adapted for the two 911 GT3 models to ensure precise wheel location, good directional stability and excellent handling. The rear axle has subframemounted LSA (Light, Stable, Agile) multi-link suspension, as well as special shock absorber coordination. Ride height, camber, toe angle and anti-roll bar settings can be adapted individually for the racetrack. A special feature of the new 911 GT3 RS is that the wishbone on the rear axle is split. So camber can be adjusted even more precisely to the demands of motorsport.
ments, the vehicle can now also be controlled with the throttle to drive very dynamically around bends. Traction Control (TC) is still active in this mode. Stage 2 disables Traction Control as well via the separate SC+TC OFF switch. In this mode both lateral dynamic control and the traction control functions are deactivated. The driver now has full command of the vehicle. In both stage 1 (SC OFF) and stage 2 (SC + TC OFF), the lateral dynamic control is not reactivated again even when there is hard braking within the ABS range. This strategy enables motorsportderived dynamics for personalised performance on the racetrack. Compared to the 911 GT3, the PSM in the new 911 GT3 RS is set for even higher performance.
The anti-lock braking system integrated in PSM (ABS 8.0) remains active in all of these settings. ABS ensures that the braking distance is as short as possible for greater safety.
A real paradox: The lower the intervention, the more dynamic the drive. Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
To contribute towards safety and driving stability within the dynamic range, the 911 GT3 and new 911 GT3 RS are fitted for the first time with Porsche Stability Management (PSM). In addition to the anti-lock braking system (ABS), it includes two automatic control systems: Stability Control (SC) and Traction Control (TC). Stability Control (SC) stabilises the lateral dynamics using sensors which constantly monitor the vehicles speed, yaw velocity and lateral acceleration. From this information it is possible to calculate the actual direction of travel. If the vehicle deviates from its course, Stability Control (SC) might initiate selective braking on Traction Control (TC), with its integrated automatic brake differential (ABD), anti-slip regulation (ASR) and engine drag-torque control (EDC), regulates the longitudinal dynamics of the car. This sportsindividual wheels to stabilise the vehicle within the limits of its driving dynamics.
OFF switch in the centre console. In SC OFF mode, the system does not intervene if the car goes offcourse in the lateral direction. In addition to specific steering move-
Normal mode? A very subjective question. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
Both 911 GT3 models have Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), an electronic damper adjustment system, fitted as standard. PASM actively and continuously controls the individual damping forces for each wheel according to current road At the press of a button, the driver can choose between two setup modes. Normal mode is designed for sporty driving on general roads conditions and driving style. Both models are also 30 mm lower than the standard 911 Carrera. and on the racetrack in wet conditions. Sport mode is especially for maximum lateral acceleration and the best possible traction on the racetrack.
Porsche brakes are renowned for their high level of efficiency. They set the benchmark for deceleration and stability and are designed for extreme conditions.
The new 911 GT3 RS and the 911 GT3 have a particularly powerful yet lightweight braking system with a specially adapted booster. The red-painted six-piston aluminium monobloc calipers on the front axle and the four-piston units at the rear provide a high level of rigidity and a consistent bite point, even under heavy braking.
The composite brake discs are large, with a diameter of 380 mm at the front and 350 mm at the back. Thanks to their two-piece design with newly developed standard brake discs and aluminium monobloc calipers, the weight is reduced and therefore the unsprung and rotating masses.
They are cross-drilled and internally vented for optimum performance in the wet. Brake spoiler elements on the front axle, plus the new brake ducts on the rear ensure that the braking system is effectively ventilated.
Also designed for high performance is the four-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS 8.0) which is fast and precise, ensuring consistent deceleration and excellent overall brake performance.
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).
Optional for the 911 GT3 and the new 911 GT3 RS is brake technology that has already had to withstand the harshest requirements of motorsport: the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). To enhance braking performance, the ceramic composite brake discs in PCCB have a diameter of 380 mm at the front and 350 mm at the back. They are
made from a specially treated carbon-fibre compound that is silicated in a high-vacuum process at around 1,700 C. The resulting brake discs are much harder and more resistant to heat than standard discs. PCCB is characterised by its low thermal expansion which prevents deformation under heavy braking. Furthermore, the ceramic brake discs are totally resistant to corrosion and offer better noisedamping properties.
The use of six-piston aluminium monobloc brake calipers at the front and four-piston units at the rear ensures extremely high brake forces which, crucially, are exceptionally consistent. The pedal response is fast and precise with only moderate input required. All the prerequisites are there for a short braking distance, even in the toughest conditions. Moreover, safety when braking from high speeds is increased thanks to PCCBs excellent fade resistance.
The key advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the brake discs which are about 50 % lighter than standard discs of similar design and size. In addition, the monobloc calipers for the 911 GT3 models on the front and rear axle are made from aluminium, saving around 4.8 kg per vehicle compared to standard calipers. These factors not only have an impact on performance and fuel consumption, but also reduce unsprung and rotating masses.
The result: better road-holding and increased comfort, especially on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and even better handling. Please note that circuit racing or other forms of performance driving can significantly reduce the service life of even the most durable brake pads and discs. As with conventional highperformance braking systems, we recommend that all brake
components be professionally inspected and replaced where necessary after every track event.
It is important that the structure is well prepared too. Passive safety.
The reinforced bodyshell structure of the 911 GT3 models offers exceptional crash protection and an extremely resilient passenger cell.This protection is well within the statutory limits required by legislation for front, side and rear impact.
At the front of the car, longitudinal and transverse members (1) distribute the forces from an impact and minimise deformation of the passenger cell. A patented Porsche superstructure with a highly rigid bulkhead crossmember (2) made from super high-strength steel also absorbs
the forces from the front longitudinal members to protect both footwells. The reinforced doors (3) help increase the overall rigidity of the vehicle. In a frontal impact, this upper load path (4) helps to channel energy into the side structure and thus further protect the passenger cell. In the event of a
minor collision, a system of easily replaceable impact absorbers (5) prevents more serious damage.
Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP).
POSIP comes as standard and
in side impacts. Additional safety features are the headrests integrated in the backrest, a safety steering column, three-point seat belts with height adjustment, seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters and energy-absorbing elements in the dashboard.

Universal audio interface for PCM and CDR-30.
In conjunction with PCM, you can have, as an option, up to three connections for your iPod, a USB stick/MP3 player or any audio source as an AUX interface. The iPod or a USB stick can be operated conveniently and safely via PCM. The USB connection can also be used to download data from the performance display of the Chrono Package Plus or the electronic logbook. In conjunction with the standard CDR-30 radio, you can use any audio source via an AUX connection. In this case, you use the controls on the device itself.
Chrono Package for CDR-30.
A useful option when driving the 911 GT3 models on the racetrack, the Chrono Package is available for the CDR-30 audio system and includes a swivelling, dashboardmounted analogue and digital timer. It is operated via the steering column stalk for the on-board computer. The analogue display shows the elapsed hours, minutes and seconds. Seconds, tenths of seconds and hundredths of seconds appear on one display, while at the same time there is a digital display on the instrument cluster.
Chrono Package Plus for PCM.
The Chrono Package Plus option is only available in conjunction with PCM. The system combines an analogue and digital timer unit with a range of useful functions. Lap or journey times can be viewed, stored and analysed using the performance display in PCM. The driver can use it to find out the time and distance travelled on the current lap, as well as the number of laps completed and their respective times. The fastest lap and remaining range till empty can also be viewed. Any section of road can be recorded, as well as benchmark sections. The Chrono Package Plus personal memory function, also controlled via PCM, stores personal settings for lights, wipers, air conditioning and door locks.
Voice control system for PCM.
Almost all of the functions of PCM can be controlled using the optional voice control system. Each menu item is read aloud exactly as it is displayed on the screen and the voice control system recognises the commands or number sequences, irrespective of the speaker. It gives audible feedback and guides you through the functions. There is no need to train the system. Phone book entries can be retrieved, a radio station selected or the navigation destination entered directly by speaking whole words.
Todays Porsche sportscars are already designed to run on 10 % ethanol. Ethanol has a positive impact on the CO2 balance since the plants grown for the production of this biofuel also absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.
The 911 GT3 models comply with all valid noise requirements in the countries where they are sold. Noises are eliminated at source. It sounds paradoxical, but without any noise there is only one pure sound.
In the fuel system of the 911 GT3 models, the emission of hydrocarbons has been minimised. This is achieved through a large active carbon filter and a special coating on the fuel tank. All pipes that carry fuel are made from aluminium, while vapour-carrying lines are made from multi-layered plastic.
Long service intervals offer clear advantages. For you: lower costs and saved time. For the environment: the use of fewer consumables and replacement parts. For details of the service intervals for the 911 GT3 models, please refer to the separate price list.

In an era of intensifying debate about CO2 emissions, every automotive manufacturer is being asked the question, What is your answer to the issue of fuel consumption? Our answer has long been the same: maximum efficiency. Over the last 15 years, Porsche has been reducing the CO2 emis-
sions of its vehicles annually by an average of around 1.7%. In relation to engine power, Porsche is already among those manufacturers achieving the lowest CO2 emissions. This has been achieved through a new efficient drive concept, optimum aerodynamics, low rolling resistance and lightweight construction. This high level of environmental responsibility

Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0: Biggest 911 Engine Ever Offered
Limited-edition car is packed with motorsport technology
ATLANTA April 28, 2011 --- The 911 GT3 RS, one of Porsches most popular, coveted and successful track-inspired production cars, has been given a final, thrilling injection of thoroughbred motorsport technology resulting in the 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0. Limited to 600 vehicles worldwide, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 brings together in a sports car the attributes that have made the Porsche 911 GT3 a consistent winner on the race track. The motorsport-derived 4.0-liter engine, already the highest displacement 911 engine ever, also features the highest per-liter output -- 125 horsepower (hp) per liter -- from a naturally aspirated Porsche flat-six engine. The engine uses forged pistons, the connecting rods are fashioned from titanium, and the crankshaft has been lifted unchanged from the 911 GT3 RSR race car. It achieves its maximum power of 500 hp at 8,250 rpm. Maximum torque of 339 ft/lbs is reached at 5,750 rpm. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0 offers truly impressive performance, lapping the famed NrburgringNordschleife in 7 minutes and 27 seconds. Available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 sprints from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.8 seconds, and with its gearing designed for the race circuit it reaches the 124 mph mark on the race track in under 12 seconds. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0s outstanding driving dynamics come from numerous, meticulously coordinated details. In addition to using suspension components typically encountered in motor racing, weight reduction is also of supreme importance. Equipped as standard with lightweight components such as light but strong carbon fiber sport bucket seats, carbon fiber front fenders and luggage compartment lid, and weight-optimized carpets, the two-seaters ready-for-action weight is just 2,998 lbs with a full fuel tank. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0s power-to-weight ratio is 5.99 lbs/hp. This limited edition 911 is painted Carrara White as standard and emphasizes its proximity to motor racing by its dynamic appearance. Signature characteristics are the wide track, the low vehicle position, the large rear wing with side plates, central twin tailpipe, and the aerodynamically optimized body. Air deflection vanes mounted on either side of the front bumper called flics or dive planes make their first appearance on a production Porsche. They create increased downforce on the front axle, and together with the steeply inclined rear wing, provide aerodynamics on par with its
performance capabilities. As a result, at the 193 mph top track speed, aerodynamic forces exert an additional 426 lbs of downforce, thus pushing the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 onto the road. With a manufacturers suggested retail price starting at $185,000 (excluding destination), the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 goes on sale in the United States in late 2011.
