Review: Chris Harris drives the new Porsche 911 GT3 | Top Gear

Petrolheads, assemble: it’s a new Porsche 911 GT3. Which is basically like saying ‘it’s a new Bowie album’ to the music nerds. This is benchmark sports car, the one by which the steering feel, chassis composure and engine response of every other supposed supercar on the market is measured against. The 992 GT3 gets a racecar engine, a ginormous wing and a rather special new knob. And this is what happens when Chris Harris is tasked with running that glorious 4.0-litre flat-six engine in, just so he can open the taps and spank it around a track.

  • Is not like that, isn't the best car money can buy, if you want the car really sing buy a Ferrari v12, or a Lambo v10. And yes, all these things double or triple the actual value in 10, 15 years than everything is going electric or ....

  • I had a 996 GT3 and was Newley thrown off the road on the A82 in Scotland because the suspension was that firm. Too firm a ride can ruin a car for the UK. I suppose if you live in London and can only stretch the gt3 legs at a track then fine. I live in Scotland have have unbelievable roads on my doorstep and therefore desire a better road car. Please Porsche can you make a 992 Carter’s T with N/A engine from Gt4 and manual. 🙏

  • It's only when a new model is released that reviewers point to shortcomings in the previous model. Then "Can get a bit busy on bumpy B roads" . Well let me tell you that when those same roads are wet and greasy a 4WD Focus RS will take the smile off the Porsche pilot's face.

I got the car at 45k and that engine would sing with power and lasted well over 200k leaving must cars in the dust with a top speed of 115 m.p.h. . Break in periods on gas engines should be a lot longer in my opinion.

  • 14:46 - you might be able to drive home from the 'Ring if you don't bin it, but I'm guessing you might have to replace the rear tyres first. :) I reckon anyone but a bloody legend couldn't drive a GT3 all weekend at the 'ring without crashing the hell out of it. I think I have wrecked about 1.5 billion pounds worth of GT3 RSRs at the 'ring. And died about 127 times, while doing it. :)

  • Yeah but it weighs 1.5 tons! How would a little all-carbon 911 body with a 2-litre turbo flat six go against this monstrosity? Say, something under 900 kilos all up, and with around 400 horses, and a red-line north of 10-grand? Because, you know what? I reckon such a car, based loosely on the 1972 RSR bodyshell, would spank this thing. And if you did that, you'd also be able to whack 20KwH of batteries in the front , add two electric motors, each with 100 BHP, and turn it into a hybrid rocketship with on-demand AWD, a sub-3-second 100km/h time, and it could also pootle around as a front-drive electric town car with about 40km of range. THAT is the 911 I dream of. It's a function of technology to make things better. And I am sorry to say it, but a 911 that weighs 1.5 tons is worse than a 911 that weighs 1-ton. Period. End of story. Lightness is efficient. Weight is the enemy. Herr Porsche would be spinning in his grave if he knew how fat and luxurious the 911 is. It does not need any of that garbage. Screw luxury. That is not what driving is about. Driving is about connecting the driver to the road in the best way possible, and the best way possible is to make your car lightweight.

  • Watched this video must be 5 times the whole way through. As an avid car fan, I well up every single time. These cars are the last of an era and its going to be a great great shame to no longer have them being produced. The sound, the driving enjoyment the overall experience, the way it makes you feel will be no more. Fantastic review but also an upsetting reality for all petrol heads for what's coming in the future. I'm 24 years old and dream to one day afford one of these things, unfortunately it'll all be electric when/if that day ever arrives. We all need N/A engine's and manual gear boxes in our lives!!
