Report: Porsche stops selling GT3s, as more of them catch fire

Temporarily at least, the Germans have halted the sale of their street legal track day car, the GT3. After 5 copies caught fire, the automaker suggested that they were launching an investigation into what appeared to be engine fire issues.

The current car comes with a 3.8 liter, naturally-aspirated flat six chucking out 475 horsepower and can be mated to Porsche’s 7-speed PDK automated manual transmission. 0-60 happens in 3.5 seconds and the top speed is just a hair under 200 at 195. Until then, one will have to get their $130,000 rear engined goodness on the lightly used market, or just watch this video.
