At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This increases agility, especially when cornering. At high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This increases driving stability, above all at high speeds or when overtaking on the race track.
This electronic adjustment of the shock absorber system actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. PASM has two settings: ‘Normal’, which is a blend of performance and comfort, and ‘Sport’ where the set-up is much firmer.
PSM is an automatic control system for helping to maintain stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. The systems can be completely switched off in two stages. For intentionally sporty handling on the race track.
Available as an option, the lift system raises the 911 GT3 at the front axle by 1.1 in. To increase ground clearance at speeds of up to approximately 31 mph. A new feature is the automatic lift function which is based on personally stored position data.
When examining all measures taken to improve aerodynamics, the new 911 GT3 with fixed rear wing achieves approximately 60% more downforce than its predecessor. In the Performance position, which is not road-approved, it delivers more than twice as much downforce for use on the race track.
But before you start calculating now: get on the race track where you can experience the performance directly.
A battle cry against the headwind: the front fascia of the new 911 GT3 models with their large openings. The incoming air cools the brakes, the coated air intake grilles protect against foreign objects. The air outlets in the central radiator are now integrated into the carbon fiber hood and emphasize the motorsport look.
Downforce. Balance. Cooling. Everything must be in harmony. The wide front spoiler lip ensures additional downforce on the front axle. Thanks to the new front diffuser, downforce on the front axle and vehicle balance can now be adjusted in stages. Together with the aerodynamically improved underbody panelling, downforce on the front axle and vehicle balance can be optimally coordinated. The air control elements behind the front wheels have been completely revised and now deliver twice the amount of downforce with the same air resistance.
The rear of the new 911 GT3 is powerful. A powerful downforce is generated by the new wing attached to the top, as previously used on the 911 RSR. It is carried by two aluminum supports that are integral to the vehicle bodyshell. The so-called swan-neck connection ensures that there is a clean flow around the underside of the wing, leading to significantly less loss of downforce.
The completely new diffuser with large slats on the rear is aerodynamically efficient. It delivers up to four times more rear downforce than the rear diffuser of its predecessor.
High-tech: the high-resolution 7-inch TFT displays on the left and right of the tachometer which show configurable vehicle information on virtual instruments. In addition, the latest generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with 10.9-inch touchscreen display impresses with a completely revised display and control concept and clearly structured and individually selectable content.
At the sporting limit, it is always about being direct. Especially on the racetrack but also with ergonomics in the cockpit. In this sense, the interior of the new 911 GT3 models is leading the way. It reflects on classic 911 virtues and extends them to new technological possibilities. The principle: analog fascination meets digital integration.
The Sport Seats Plus with elevated side bolsters, electric seat height and backrest adjustment as well as the manual fore/aft adjustment are standard. The side bolsters are covered in leather, the seat centers in black Race-Tex, while the ‘GT3’ logo is embroidered on the headrests in Silver. The side bolsters on the cushion and backrest have a firm, sporty padding and offer excellent lateral support – even in the pelvis area. The backrest shell is finished in Dark Silver.
Adaptive Sport Seats Plus with 18-way electric adjustment of seat positions are available on request.
Full bucket seats made entirely of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) with carbon-weave finish and featuring integrated thorax airbag are available as an option. They offer particularly good lateral support at minimal weight. The fore/ aft adjustment is manual, the height adjustment is electric. The cover is made of black leather as standard, with a seat center in black perforated Race-Tex, lined in a contrasting color, with the ‘GT3’ logo embroidered in Silver on the headrests. Optional Shark Blue interior stitching shown here.
Child seats are not compatible with full bucket seats.
The GT3 Sport steering wheel with PDK gearshift paddles in Dark Silver enables short shift throws like in motorsport. The non-slip steering wheel rim in black Race-Tex sits comfortably in the hand, even during sporty driving. All materials are puristic and yet of high quality – in addition to the black Race-Tex, black leather and trim in Black with inlays in Anthracite Brushed Aluminum.
Time is precious? In all honesty, at this point we take it a little more precisely. Because here we are talking about tenths and hundredths of a second.
In addition to analog and digital stopwatches on the dashboard, the optional Chrono Package offers the following functions: PCM is upgraded to include a special performance display, enabling you to display, store and evaluate recorded lap times. In this way, the driver can view the current lap time and distance, number of laps completed and other times achieved so far – accurate to a hundredth of a second, of course. It is also possible to view the current fastest lap and range until empty. Any travelled distances can be recorded and benchmark times defined.
Porsche Connect provides assistance with helpful services. Through the Porsche Connect app, you can synchronize destinations and calendars with your Porsche, plan trips with Real-time Traffic Information from Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and use music services on your smartphone. Be navigated, informed and entertained by your Porsche. The Navigation & Infotainment package helps you to reach your destination faster, thanks to route calculation with up-to-date online maps. Using the voice recognition interface you can easily search for information, such as the weather at your destination, and have current news on the economy, politics and sport read aloud to you. Especially if you are not on the racetrack – or are just on your way there.

Traffic sign recognition uses a camera and navigation data to detect road signs, no overtaking zones (start and end), and infer local traffic codes (from boundary signs) and displays them in the instrument cluster.
Parking proximity sensors on the rear with audible proximity warning and distance graphic on the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) screen.
When a camera located inside the rear-view mirror detects the headlights of an oncoming vehicle, the high beams are automatically turned off at a distance of approximately 2,600 feet. If the taillights of a vehicle traveling in front are detected, the high beam is then turned off at a distance of approximately 1,300 feet.
