    • Rocket - Watch the 2018 Porsche 911 (991.2) GT3 accelerate with launch control from 0-250 kph

      You need turbos? Really? Just look at how quickly the new 991.2 GT3 gets to 250 kph (155 mph) and how it just rockets through the gears in the video below. It is absolutely incredible Porsche gets 500 horsepower out of a naturally aspirated 4.0 liter motor and revs it to 9k rpm.


      This is a masterpiece of a motor. The PDK transmission certainly helps as well as the gear changes are practically instant. The 6800 rpm launch control doesn't hurt either.

      Plus that sound! That glorious, glorious sound as it sings toward 9k rpm.

      As for the performance it is obviously quick. We are likely going to see our first 10 second naturally aspirated Porsches with the 991.2 GT3 models.

        These cars are just incredible...this motor will have to go down as one of the all-time greats. Absolutely incredible. And even at 144k they're a bargain...nothing else drives like this, looks like this, goes like this, sounds like this, or is built to the same standard.

        It's hard to argue with any of that.

        $144k is not even bad. Maybe I'll get one next.

        I wish there was a way to mod them though. Just a teeny bit of boost...
