PORSCHE’S 911 GT3 is legendary. The brand properly snaffled the licence exclusively for highway cars and then failed to go totally bonkers and plaster it on what it pleased to tick around a handful of far more income. It is a badge that means a thing to even everyday fans of rapid cars and means a thing exceptionally particular to Porsche enthusiasts.
If you stick a GT3 badge on the back again of a 911, signify it. It has to be a thing person-pleasant – as almost all modern day 911s are. It has to evoke the wild accomplishment Porsche has loved in motorsport – it has to glance the element but far more importantly, really feel the element.

The fourth remains on screen within the pit garage, to be termed into action ought to the unthinkable happen.
Wish us luck!
