Porsche 911 GT3 review – interior and tech

The GT3’s interior doesn’t vary widely from the basic 911’s, which means the fundamentals are sound. Its bespoke elements are welcome, though, the main point being a very subtle selection of yellow touches around the gear selector, rev counter and badging. As mentioned above, the PDK’s selector is an old-school lever wrapped in Alcantara. Aside from the slightly off-centre placement, it looks identical to the manual, save for the shift pattern.

You can sit extremely low in the GT3, with a steering wheel that’s both smaller and slightly thicker than in a base 911. It comes out at you at a nearly 90-degree angle, if you sit low enough, and the pedals are absolutely perfectly placed in both PDK and manual set-ups.

All GT3s come with a black leather and fabric interior trim with silver stitching, but blue or red stitching can be added from the standard options list. Touring models take a slightly different direction, with extended use of leather on the dash and door cards in a pleated pattern. This is joined by a more understated dark-finish brushed aluminium trim, replacing the standard-fit matt carbon.

If you want to go off the beaten track inside, Porsche’s Exclusive department will allow you to finish the interior in any number of leather or fabric options, including a huge range of heritage fabric inserts. Build quality is typically superb, so you won’t feel short-changed inside.

The GT3’s tech is also pretty top-notch, with Porsche’s PCM system versatile, easy to use and nice to look at. CarPlay is available, if you so wish. As mentioned earlier, one recommendation we would make is to try to spec the upgraded BOSE sound system, as the basic unit is barely audible over the GT3’s fairly prominent road noise.
