DRAG RACE: Porsche 911 GT3 vs Turbo S vs Turbo S Cabriolet

It's an all Porsche affair.

This should be interesting. Two turbocharged Porsche 911 Turbo S’s vs the screaming naturally aspirated GT3.

Some power figures. The Porsche 911 GT3 is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six engine that produces 368 kW and 460 Nm of torque. The GT3 revs all the way to a glorious 9000 rpm, and it sounds magnificent.

The Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe and Cabriolet are both powered by a 3.8-litre turbocharged flat-six engine that produces 478 kW and 800 Nm of torque. It’s good to point out that the Coupe weighs in at 1,640 kg and the Cabriolet is a bit heavier weighing in at 1,710 kg. The 911 Turbo S is still Carwow’s drag race king with a blistering time of 10.1 seconds.

carwow puts these through a drag race, rolling race, and brake test.
