WATCH: The Porsche 911 GT3, Andy Pilgrim, and a Rip-Roaring Good Time on the Track


If you follow Pro Racer’s Take, you know we never wait to put Porsches into the evaluation around our home foundation of NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. And for good reason: Stuttgart makes a number of the best automobiles in the company, from sports cars to both performance SUVs and sedans into (soon) the all-electric Taycan, although we’ll have to get some more seat time in the latter to know whether it finally fulfills expectations.

Nevertheless, when it comes to performance sports cars rsquo & there;s no denying Porsche’s provenance and got credibility. Really, the 911 GT2 RS we ran retains the production-car lap list in NCM Motorsports Park having a shocking period of two minutes, 3.75 seconds. Other Porsche times on our board include the 911 Turbo S at 2:11.05 as well as the 718 Cayman GTS in 2:16.49.

911 GT3, however, is what most men and women tend to think of if it comes to track-oriented Porsches. Its motorsports-derived character doesn’t come cheap–$143,600 to begin, and $151,200 as tested here–but as our designated car flogger Andy Pilgrim demonstrates in this episode, it’s tough to argue from the GT3 as soon as you feel what it could do on a challenging racetrack, even if a big moment of oversteer rears its head. And should you’re more inclined to care about straight-line stride, the GT3 does a fine job in that section as well, with zero to 60 mph carrying only 3.2 seconds, while top speed is really still a hair under 200 mph.

Can Porsche’monitor that is s baby do against its in-house offerings rsquo, we now all &;t run previously? Hit play to ride over to the end.
