A six-speed manual transmission has returned to the Porsche 911 GT3.
The model continues to be as close to a street-legal race car as Porsche can muster, powered by a 4.0-liter flat-six engine that’s naturally aspirated. Cranking out 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque, buyers can also opt for a seven-speed PDK if they don’t want to row the gears themselves.
The latest 911 GT3 tips the scale at 3,153 pounds and can hit 60 mph from a standstill in 3.2 seconds. The manual-equipped model is lighter at 3,116 lbs and does the sprint a bit slower at 3.8 seconds.
Look for the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 to arrive dealerships in the U.S. this fall sporting a price tag of $144,650 including destination.
