The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 boasts of its speed, feel, noise and design. The new GT3 is one hell of a genius monster car.

The sport car can over-perform because of its powerful engine. The supercar runs with 9A1.5 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine.

The monster sport car has a new valvetrain design, intake manifold, crankshaft, and lubrication system. It can rev 200 rpm higher, with a maximum of 6,000 rpm.

The previous engine's hydraulic lifters were replaced by solid valve lifters. The automaker boasts that these new valve lifters do not require any adjustments in less than 150,000 miles.

It comes with a redesigned plastic intake manifold which gives the second flap to pump up torque and can respond at low- and mid-range engine speeds. The new GT3 can deliver 500 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque.

The standard 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 comes with seven-speed PDK. In its first four gears, the PDK shares the manual's ratios.

The outstanding thing about the new Porsche 911 GT3 is that it accelerates with much ease. It simply just goes faster.

With regard to the body, the new GT3 sports the same fat-haunched body of the existing Carrera 4 and 4S. Compared to the existing Carrera, the rear fenders of the new sport car measure 1.7 inches wider and one inch lower. In addition, the carbon-fiber hinges used on the rear decklid has decreased the body weight by two pounds.

Furthermore, the new body design adds to the speedy personality of the new GT3. It has a larger front splitter, taller rear wing, and new underbody panels. All these new aspects result to an increase downforce to 342 pounds at top speed (199 for the manual, and 198 mph for the PDK).

In terms of driving, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 adjusts to driver's command. As the driver changes his driving, the new sport car also adjusts its personality. The new 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 has a starting price of $146,000.
