The Porsche 911 Gt3 Named 2014 World Performance Car
Total Articles: 5
Drivers looking for a sports car that has power, style and performance to boot, should take a look at the Porsche 911 GT3. This car was named the “2014's World Performance Car” by jurors at this year's New York Car Show. This show is one of the automotive industry's big events, and in order to win the prestigious "World Performance Car" award, a car must compete and win in four separate categories. Contestant vehicles compete in the areas of "Green Car", "Car Design", "Performance Car" and "Car of The Year". The jury panel is comprised of 69 journalists from 22 countries, who are considered to be experts in the field of automotive design and review. The car beat stiff competition in the form of the Chevy Corvette Stingray, and the Ferrari 458 Speciale. This is the fourth time a Porsche product has won the World Car Awards, and much of the appeal for the jurors this time seemed to lie in the redesign of the 911 GT3. The changes include a lighter body, rear wheel handling, and a revamped engine than can reach 60 MPH in just 3.3 seconds, reaching a top speed of 195 miles per hour.
Many critics at the New York Car Show commented on the car's speed and overall handling, deeming it "track ready", and "performance oriented". In its review in Car and Driver the reviewer also made much of its handling and speed, but also praised the car's "stupendous" braking. He also gave the vehicle's sleek appearance high marks, noting that "both its interior and exterior are both track and boulevard ready." Autoweek called the Porsche 911 GT 3 "a pure joy to drive". While the reviewer was drawn as well to the car's speed and handling, he praised its more aerodynamic design, which he felt created better road handling, and the car's fuel efficiency, an improvement over earlier generations of this vehicle. Road and Track pointed out that there had been some controversy over Porsche's decision to finally equip this model with an automatic transmission, but assured readers that they wouldn't notice the switchover from manual, and that the vehicle's new dual clutch was an improvement over the older model's stiffer one. He also had high praise for the car's new electrical steering system, noting that "the driver feels everything the tie rods do", and that in varying road conditions, "there's no chance of under steering".
And the love for this sporty new Porsche is being felt across the pond as well, with Great Britain's What Car praising the 911 GT 3 for its powerful motor and chassis. Like all the other reviewers, he felt that if you're headed for La Mans, the Porsche 911 GT 3 was the car to do it in. But if you're just looking for a fast, powerful vehicle that is safe, easy to drive, and stylish, you should be looking at 2014's World Car of the Year, the Porsche 911 GT 3.
