Porsche 911 GT3 (2021 – ) | Expert Rating – The Car Expert | CarTailz

summary


The Porsche 911 GT3 is a light and powerful version of the regular coupe 911 (992 generation). This is the fourth generation of the 911 GT3, launched in the UK in 2021.

The range consists of the standard GT3 as well as the GT3 Touring version, which replaces the coupe’s huge fixed rear wing with an automatically deployable rear spoiler.

Above these two is the even more powerful GT3 RS model, which joined the range in 2022. This comes with several body changes to improve aerodynamics and a slight increase in power. All models use the same 510hp (518hp for the GT3 RS) 4.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine as the previous GT3 range, delivering a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.4 seconds. Both manual and automatic transmissions are available.

As with previous GT3 generations, the current 911 GT3 range has been enthusiastically received by the British automotive media. top gear describes it as “phenomenal” while the Which car? Team concludes its review by stating that the coupe is “absolutely brilliant”.

“It’s married to one of the greatest engines on a car today,” says Alex Ingram of Auto Express. “In fact, compared to competing high-performance machines, it’s amazing value for money.” While the GT3’s six-figure price tag isn’t exactly affordable for the average UK buyer, the coupe is still cheaper than rivals with equivalent performance like the Aston Martin Vantage, the McLaren 765 LT and the Mercedes-AMG GT Pro.

Reliability data is provided solely for The Car Expert by MotorEasy

All data is based on the average MotorEasy workshop cost for extended automotive warranty claims

As of November 2022, the entire Porsche 911 family has a poor reliability rating of 34%, according to warranty data exclusively made available by our partner MotorEasy The Car Expert. This applies to both the current 911 range (including the GT3) and previous generations, although it is based on a relatively small number of data points.

Also worth noting is the very high average repair cost for 911 repairs of more than £2,000. Average repair bills are significantly higher than normal in every category, but most notably for engine repairs, where the average warranty claim for repairs on Porsche’s famous flat-six engine was over £8,000.

If you own or are considering a used Porsche 911, make sure your used car warranty covers all of these critical areas.
