    Porsche GT3 - Wikipedia

    The Porsche GT3 is a high performance version of the Porsche sports car primarily intended for racing. It is a line of high-performance models, which began with the Carrera RS. A number of variations, designed for road and track duty, have been introduced since its launch in More than 14, cars have been produced. The "GT3" nameplate was introduced in as part of the first generation of the Porsche model range commonly known as As with Porsche's previous RS models, the GT3 was focused on racing, and so was devoid of items that added unnecessary weight to the car.

    The engine of the GT3 set it apart from most of the other Porsche models, although it shared the same basic design of the standard so-called "integrated dry sump " flat-six engine. The engine is naturally aspirated and based on the unit used in the Porsche and Porsche GT1 race cars. That engine was known as the 'Mezger' engine, after its designer Hans Mezger. The engine uses the original air-cooled 's versatile dry-sump crankcase, with an external oil reservoir. In GT3 configuration, this so-called "split" crankcase meaning the parting line of crankcase is on the crankshaft centreline uses, instead of a fan and finned cylinders , separate water jackets added onto each side of the crankcase to cool banks of three cylinders with water pumped through a radiator.

    Thus, the GT3 engine is very similar to the completely water-cooled Porsche racing car's engine, which is based on the same crankcase. The GT3 engine could thus also be thought of as similar to a engine, but with water-cooled cylinders. Up to early model year GT3 production, the basic casting used for the crankcase of the GT3 was the same as the air-cooled engine.

    The "" casting number was visible on the bottom of the crankcase, and on areas normally machined in air-cooled applications, but not in water-cooled ones.

    The crankcase casting was changed in mid to a "" casting number crankcase to eliminate these external air-cooled remnants, but internally it was the same. Because the air-cooled crankcase uses the Porsche engine to transmission mounting flange configuration, the GT3 used a manual gearbox also of air-cooled heritage.

    This gearbox has interchangeable gear ratios and is more durable making it more suitable for racing than the standard type gearbox. To bring the vehicle's track-prowess to the maximum level, Porsche endowed the GT3 with enlarged brakes , a lowered, re-tuned suspension system, lighter-weight wheels and a new front bumper with matched rear spoiler to help increase downforce , thereby increasing grip.

    Porsche offered a no-cost option for the GT3 called the 'Clubsport' package. This option replaced the standard electrically adjustable leather front seats with manually adjustable racing buckets finished in fire-retardant fabric, single mass flywheel , bolt-in half- roll cage , 6-point drivers racing harness also replacing the standard side airbags , fire extinguisher mounted in the front passenger footwell and preparation for a battery master switch.

    The Clubsport option was never offered to US customers, ostensibly due to the additional DOT crash testing that would have been required to allow US sales. Porsche made significant updates to the GT3 for the first year the car was offered to US customers , using the facelift including headlights that were differentiated from the Porsche Boxster.

    The version is commonly known as the The braking setup was upgraded, now featuring 6-piston calipers on the front rears remained 4-piston , and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system was offered as an option.
