Drag race Porsche 911: Turbo S vs GT2 RS and GT3


British YouTube channel carwow compared the dynamics of the hard-edged Porsche 911 – the new Turbo S supercar was pitted against the previous generation GT2 RS and the current 992 GT3. The six-cylinder coupes competed in quarter-mile starts, parallel races from 50 mph (80 kilometers per hour) for half a mile, and the final test was to evaluate the effectiveness of the brakes from a speed of 100 miles per hour (161 kilometers per hour).

Porsche 911 GT3 (992) debuted later than rivals; it is the lightest (1,435 kilograms) and cheapest (£ 128,000) supercar of the trinity. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine with 510 horsepower and 470 Nm of torque. Traction is transmitted to the rear axle through a 7-speed “robot”.

The current Porsche 911 Turbo S has a 3.75-liter boxer twin-turbo six with 650 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. The gearbox is an 8-speed “robot”, there is a four-wheel drive. The supercar weighs 1640 kilograms and will cost 165 thousand pounds.

The last generation of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS was produced for about two years, and at the moment the price of the coupe with the Weissach package has risen to 300 thousand pounds. The rear-wheel drive two-door is equipped with a 3.8-liter 700-horsepower (750 Nm) turbo engine and weighs 1470 kilograms.

At a distance of a quarter of a mile, the fastest “nine hundred and eleventh” was separated by 0.2 seconds, but it was not possible to determine the owner of the most effective brakes. But in half a mile off the run, the advantage of the rarest and most expensive supercar turned out to be undeniable.
