The new Porsche 911 GT3 has proved to be fairly controversial. Gone is the involving manual transmission, replaced by a rapid-changing PDK. And the electric power steering has purists weeping into their race suits. But jump in the driver’s seat with an open mind and you’ll be richly rewarded.
That’s the opinion of Andreas Preuninger, the man responsible for the team that developed the new GT3. In this video you get an insight into his thought processes on the car’s development, and can hear that 3.8-litre flat six rev all the way to 9,000, as he reassures us that the car will still invoke emotion and feed your senses.
Forget about all the purist nonsense, the new GT3 is a beast.
