2022 Porsche 911 GT3
Since the GT3’s debut in 1999, it has never been the fastest or most expensive vehicle in Porsche’s lineup yet in each generation, it continues to be the most coveted. The formula has always been simple- a high revving naturally aspirated flat-6 engine, the option of a stripped-out interior, and suspension setup for track use. In February of 2021, Porsche unveiled their newest GT3, based on the 992 generation 911. Powered by a 4.0-Liter Flat-6, this GT3 was the most powerful yet, producing 503 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque and able to rev all the way to 9,000RPM. Available with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed PDK gearbox, this GT3 utilized technology from Porsche’s 991 RSR race car to make it the most capable generation yet. Unequal-length control arms in front replace the McPherson Strut front suspension that has been present on 911s since 1963- this development from the RSR helps increase grip while also reducing weight in the front of the car. In the rear, a new spoiler design was also brought over from race cars- utilizing “swan-neck” pylons, the wing is suspended from above, allowing for greater downforce in a wider variety of situations. These combined with numerous other small modifications add up to a car that is notably faster around a track than the previous variant while gaining a relatively small amount of horsepower along the way.
This 2022 GT3 is essentially a brand new car, having been delivered to Porsche Fremont in Fremont, CA September 30th of this year and showing just 45 miles at the time of cataloging. This GT3 has been exceptionally well specified and the window sticker shows $46,800 in factory options throughout the car. The first question people will ask about a GT3 is the transmission choice- this car has been equipped with a traditional 3-pedal manual transmission which gives the ultimate in driver involvement and makes the car tremendous fun. Optioned in Paint to Sample, this GT3 wears a beautiful shade of dark non-metallic blue known as “Albert Blue” which is offset on the exterior by a set of silver wheels and dark exterior trim. The yellow brake calipers also offer a nice contrast and denote that this GT3 has been optioned with PCCB Carbon Ceramic brakes which offer fade-free stopping when on track while also producing minimal dust on the wheels. A unique option that was selected on this GT3 was a bare carbon fiber roof which looks great and reduces weight higher up on the vehicle. The interior is fitted with full carbon-backed bucket seats which have been upholstered in black leather with Race-Tex centers and silver stitching is present throughout the interior. With a low nose on the GT3, the optional front axle lift system is a crucial option on this car and rear park distance control is extremely useful when maneuvering the car around. What makes the GT3 such an ideal sports car is that it checks nearly every box on anybody’s list. It is fast and exciting to drive while also offering enough practicality around town that it could easily be a daily driver. This 2022 GT3 is ideally set up to be competent at both briefs and will provide its new owner with years of enjoyment in whatever way they choose to use it. Included with the sale of this car is a full set of books and manuals as well as the original window sticker and 2 keys.
