The Porsche 911 GT3 is back. The revised 991.2 GT3 is a stripped-out, track-ready, ultra-focused 911 with a new, 4.0-litre flat-six engine making 493bhp in the back of it.

It might look quite similar to its predecessor but there are thousands of changes under the skin to make one of the best sports cars in the world even better, including lessons it learned from the 911 GT3 RS and 911 R

The biggest news of all, though, is that the new GT3 can be had with a manual gearbox! Guess what? This is not it! Argh. 

But join us as we explain why not, and all that is fabulous, about Porsche's latest GT3, as we test it flat out at Anglesey Circuit, North Wales.

Great review Matt Prior. Like

Great review Matt Prior. Like your no nonsense, factual approach. Sometimes it's nice to see the car just going quick around a circuit though, not showboating sideways, although that was possibly more for your own fun than anything else.

No doubt this is a great track car and is apparently noisy inside now to save weight, does this mean the RS version destined for dealers wanting to hold them for profit will be unpleasant on the road? £110k may be steep but sounds a bargain compared to an R version which is now running at half a million because of the manual box, a four litre engine and less downforce. If I had just paid £500k for one of those I would be worried about this new car with a better higher revving engine.

I Remember the 997 GT3 costing £78k

Or was it my imagination? So £110k entry for something undeniably great for the track. You could say its had its "greatness" priced in.
