“Once again, the 911 GT3 uses a 4.0-liter inline-four with no turbocharger. Driving a naturally aspirated car these days is rare enough, let alone a revving car. to 9,000 rpm and peaks at 502 hp at 8,400 rpm. That’s right, not ruined. In fact,
Porsche says it’s “practically the same engine used in the new 911 GT3 Cup race car.” Adding to the sonic pleasure of listening to the engine for nine bucks is the GT3’s Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust System.
“The problem, however, is that the standard seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission rarely sees the need to get anywhere near that red line. Since I don’t drive on a track, it mostly shifts around 6,500 up to 7,000 rpm That’s still higher than the ceiling of most cars, but far from sheer beauty, the Pavarotti reaches heights you can max out. need to use the PDK’s paddle for fast going purposes (Sport mode + knows exactly when to shift and shift, thank you very much) you will would like to use them just to make things as fun as possible. You can also get free optional six-speed manual. Again, not ruined.
“The same cannot be said for driving routes. Mention ‘snake’ to any auto enthusiast in the Greater Los Angeles area, and they’ll immediately know you’re not referring to the snake.” mention a reptile or Jake Roberts It’s a wonderful, zigzag twist on the Mulholland Highway in the north. Malibu just east of Kanan Dume Road. While I used to drive it weekly as part of a routine car check-up, I haven’t done so since moving house in 2017. I have yet to do so. It is clear that the snake was ruined, not by Covid, but by the catastrophic wildfire in November 2018 that to this day makes it insurmountable. That’s not the only part of my old Malibu estate that’s still scorched and off-road.
“I knew I was going to go in, but instead of looking up which spots were closed, I decided to find out for myself. The worst that can happen is needing to turn around and rerun some twists and turns. In the new GT3 Oh no I started in Las Flores Gorge The road, an almost comical set of steep and narrow turns. Bigger, more powerful cars like the 911 don’t usually match it, but this GT3 really stands out.
“This is the first production 911 to feature a double-wishbone front suspension, with a design inspired by the award-winning 911 RSR race car Le Mans. Porsche says it delivers” agile turning behavior. usually.” Is not Surprisingly, it’s also accurate and communicates beautifully, but replacing the 911’s usual rubber suspension pins with ball joints increases response even more. If this is not the best way to drive, period, it could be Cayman GT4 or some weird that I haven’t driven. “
