The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 seems like one of the most thoughtful versions of the track-focused 911 variant ever made, with a few setups available according to personal preferences. Moreover, improvements in terms of performance are minimal but consistent around the whole car, showing a certain dedication from Porsche to bring motorsport levels of performance and exhilaration to the general public. If you’re looking for a car to take to the track and have some real fun, look no further than the GT3 variant among the Porsche 911s. 

2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Engine and Performance

 The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is all set to thrill its owners and enthusiasts with a 4.0 L naturally aspirated flat-six engine that produces 502 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain is derived from the previous generation 911 GT3 and promises yet again to reach a 9,000 RPM redline. 

The powertrain is set to be mated with the famed Porsche 7-Speed automatic PDK unit, a revised version of the previous generation 911 GT3’s transmission. The new transmission is said to deliver even crisper shifts than before. The powertrain will also get an optional 6-speed manual transmission for the enthusiasts who want to get the best out of themselves as well as the GT3.

A drivetrain is a rear-wheel-drive unit that further enhances the driving experience with a nimble yet engaging drive. The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 will deliver quite decent performance figures compared to its counterparts. Most of the rivals cost more than the 911 GT3 and don’t even come with a manual. The closest rival in the segment is certainly the 2022 Aston Martin Vantage F1 edition considering the price, power figures, and the fact that it comes with a manual transmission option as well.

How does the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 handle?

If there’s one thing that Porsche doesn’t need any schooling for, it’s the handling. All 911s throughout generations have been the best handling cars of their eras. All thanks to the impeccable engineering and the rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout, the 911 boasts a perfect balance between traction and playfulness.

The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3, developed under the GT3 division of Porsche is all set to have one of the best handling abilities in Porsche’s history. The all-new GT3 comes with a control arm suspension setup instead of the strut-type suspension setup that was seen on all previous GT3 cars. The new upper and lower control arm setup in the front is said to reduce friction, thus, keeping longitudinal forces from affecting the dampers. This stabilizes the front tires under cornering pressure and adds stability while cornering. The 2022 GT3 is also wider than the previous generation GT3s which would definitely aid the cornering ability.

2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Fuel Economy

The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is expected to deliver a combined fuel economy of 17 miles per gallon. The fuel economy in the city and highway is expected to be 15 and 20 mpg respectively. The fuel economy isn’t going to be different from the previous generation GT3 but the power and torque figures seem to have increased by a tad bit. These changes might not look different on the spec sheet but the overall performance would have drastic changes. 

Especially when considering the fact that it is a newly developed project and is surely expected to stay for some years. The tank capacity hasn’t been announced by Porsche but it is certainly expected to be around 16.9 gallons just like the previous generation GT3. The new GT3 would go on to deliver a combined range of around 287.3 miles which is not bad for a GT3 inspired road car.

Considering the fact that the GT3 is basically a race car with headlights, the fuel economy it seems to deliver is pretty decent. But when compared to its rivals, the Aston Martin Vantage F1 edition seems to have an advantage, thanks to the twin-turbo setup.

2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Interior

An optional roll cage is also available to increase the body rigidity while making the 911 GT3 safer around tracks.

2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Exterior

 The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is going to get a complete overhaul when it comes to the exterior design. The exterior is going to follow the new 911 992 design cue but with a touch of GT3. The new exterior design is going to make the new GT3 sharper, more aggressive, and wider than ever before. All of this will add to the aesthetics as well as the performance of the all-new GT3 in a big way. The front end has the 992 inspired design cues but with a more aggressive and functional grille alongside vents to improve the 911 GT3’s aerodynamics.

The side profile is sleek, wider, and does carry the unmistakable 911 design silhouette which makes it hard to not stare at it. The rear is where the GT3 truly means business. The single LED taillight strip and the dual exhaust tips certainly add to the 911 GT3’s aesthetics. Furthermore, the ducktail louver and the gigantic swan neck wing distinguishes the GT3 from your run-of-the-mill 911s.

With a lesser wheelbase than all of the rivals and possibly larger track width compared to the previous generation 911 GT3, the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 is set to deliver the ultimate handling performance that any of the previous GT3 cars or its rivals. When compared, all the cars in the group are inarguably beautiful in their own right. Which one is the most appealing of the bunch? It depends on personal preference.

These exterior changes and highlights include:

  • Larger slats on the rear diffuser
  • Swan-neck connectors for the rear wing

2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Safety

Porsche vehicles aren’t necessarily known for being extremely safe, partly because cars that can go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds and achieve equally extreme speeds aren’t particularly safe, to begin with. Nevertheless, Porsche attempts to offer as much they can to make one’s racetrack experience safer. 

The Clubsport package is offered at no extra cost and installs a roll cage and a six-point racing harness, not to mention a fire extinguisher mount with the extinguisher included. That being said, the lightweight, aerodynamic construction of the 911 GT3 doesn’t leave much room for safety. Standout safety features in the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3:

  • Clubsport Package
  • Porsche Stability Management
  • Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus
