Now developing 435 horsepower from a 3.8L boxer six-cylinder, the Porsche 911 GT3 accelerates to 62mph in 4.1 seconds. That is less than half the GT3 story, of course. If you want straight line speed, similar money buys a Porsche 911 Turbo with more power and all-wheel drive for amazing standing starts.
