According to Sportscarcup.com:

The car made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show last year and featured a 435-horsepower, six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that can rev up to 8,400 rpm. The new car featured shortened gear ratios which combined with the high-revving engine pushes the GT3 to an acceleration of 60mph from zero in just 4 seconds. Dunn’s Porsche’ engine was fuel efficient and provided consistent torque.

The GT3 sports coupe, clocking in at price tag of $100,000, boasted of a standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) that provided the sports car firmer damping which allowed for superior performance and comfort when being driven on the tracks or on uneven roads or terrain, giving it a definite advantage over the Porsche Carrera.

The anti-roll bars remain similar to the Carrera but the PASM gives it a wider control range. This allows the GT3 to speed up even on bumpy roads and improves turning stability. The responsive steering and the six-speed manual transmission provide precise control and stellar response. Aside from the acceleration, the GT3 has better handling than the Carrera.
