Porsche’s GT3 is perhaps the most interesting car they make today, as it’s a very driver-focused experience and it’s available with a stick shift. Some folks are saying that the new 500 horsepower GT3 is basically a less expensive and less rare 911R, and while that’s not expressly true, it may as well be. Is it a road car that is comfortable on the race track, or a track car that you can drive to work on a regular basis? Do you think the GT3 has changed its ethos over the last few generations, or is it still built on the same basic ideals? All of these questions can be answered by George Notaras [MotoMan] in his two-part video review of the 991.2 version of the GT3.
In the first segment of the review, MotoMan takes a deep dive into the technology that helps the 991.2-generation Porsche 911 GT3 work as well as it does. The GT3’s suspension system is completely kitted out with all of the tech wizardry that you’ve come to expect, including the trick rear wheel steering system. This is a simple walk-around video of the car from within George’s garage. Driving comes later.
Unlike the first video, in the second one George actually takes the GT3 out for a spin, allowing us to listen to the thing fire up and run, and boy can it run. This video is accentuated with the glorious audio track supplied by the GT3’s 4-liter flat-six engine. Sadly, the car provided to make this video is a PDK dual-clutch model, rather than the newly reintroduced manual gearbox version, but it sure does sound incredible.
This is an extremely positive review, which doesn’t really come as much of a surprise. You’ll have to look really hard to find something to complain about while driving the GT3. The 991.2 GT3 has allegedly transcended from simply being a car to inspiring a sense of religion in Mr. Notaras. Do you worship at the altar of GT3?
