ATLANTA --- January 29, 2009 --- Porsche will launch the fastest, most powerful 911 GT3 to-date at
the Geneva Motor Show on March 3, 2009. The high performance GT3 is the latest in the new
generation 911 series and carries over a wide range of expertise learned from motorsports -
resulting is superb capabilities both on road and on track.

New Engine

The 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 raises the performance bar thanks to an increase in engine size to 3.8
liters and VarioCam technology now on both the intake and exhaust. The naturally aspirated six-
cylinder boxer engine develops 435 bhp, 20 bhp more than its predecessor.

The new, larger engine offers a significant increase in torque at medium engine speeds, which is
particularly important for everyday driving. Track performance is also improved; the new GT3
accelerates to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and reaches a top track speed of 194 mph.

Improved Suspension

Driving dynamics have also been enhanced, and the new GT3 offers even better grip and stability.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) has enabled Porsche's engineers to make the
springs and anti-roll bars stiffer, thus ensuring even more precise handling in sport mode, while
retaining a level of comfort suitable for everyday use in normal mode. For the first time, the 911 GT3
comes standard with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), with suspension mapping mirroring that
of the GT2. The driver can disengage both stability control and traction control in separate steps.

Refined Aerodynamics

At high speeds, aerodynamic improvements have increased downforce at both the front and rear,
more than doubling the effect of the previous GT3. At the same time, the new aerodynamics
package, with larger vents in the front and rear bumpers gives the GT3 a brand-new look,
accentuated by standard bi-xenon headlights, LED rear light clusters and modified air intakes and
outlets.
