Who’s ready for an almighty Porsche 911 showdown?!

We’ve got the entry-level Porsche 911 992 going up against Porsche’s latest track monster, the GT3!

Now at first glance, you’re probably thinking this is a pointless drag race. But when you consider the two cars here have a £55,000 price difference, we thought it would be interesting to see how much more performance you get for £55k!

So how do they compare? Well starting with the 911 Carrera, it’s powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo flat-six which can deliver 385hp and 450Nm. It also weighs in at 1,505kg.

Then we have the GT3, which houses a 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six under the bonnet which can put down 510hp & 470Nm of torque. It’s also lighter than the Carrera, at 1,435kg.

So should you choose the £85k Carrera or the £140k GT3? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

  • Complete this sentence: The greatest sports car in the world is... ?

    • Lexus LFA

    • SLS AMG

    • The 1958 W198 Mercedes SL300 Gullwing, as everything after it was just history…

    • Cayman GT4

    • @mohannad qaddoumi has to be a version of the 911s..

  • I'd still go with the turbo s. If I'm paying that much I want the fastest period. Not to worried about the Rev limit personally

  • It was not boring to listen about Carbon Ceramics, it’s boring to look at this stupid irrelevant brake test over and over again, Matt! Do 10 runs record 60 to 5 time by race logic in the same strip. You can film first and last runs side by side *for entertainment purposes* if you will.

  • Hey mat we need a gt2rs in a drag race

  • To all people: A Porsche mustn't sound good to be fast ;)

  • I bet that the base 911 with a different exhaust, intake and ecu tune will get pretty close to the gt3?

  • Can you race a 911 Rsr and model s

  • Can we get a Porsche 911 Turbo S VS Porsche 911 GT3

  • 12.1 is quite slow right? (For a car at that level in price point)

  • That 911 Gt3 it's just a masterpiece. The engine performance is amazing, would like to see a race between that Gt3 aside with the 911 Turbo S.

  • We ALL know the stats on the GT3 Mat ;)

  • Can’t wait to see 992 Gt3 touring here

  • Ineos.

  • Better than Shmee dribbling over echo.

  • More Porsche in Germany, with German Carwow bloke. Converse around the "NurbRing" Makes awesome vid. One lap each as passenger, one German, one English. Lols Max. Whom is faster on the 'kick butt'

  • 12.1 seconds for that power is impressive. Basically could keep up with many cars in the 450-500 hp range

  • Bring back the third pedal for Gods sake

  • How cool would it be to have them all side-to-side in one Drag Race: 911 Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera GTS, Turbo, Turbo S and GT3!

  • The torque on both of these engines is almost identical. In the real world, almost unnoticeable.

  • The base model still looks better

  • Is What ever you drive

  • The spoiler on the GT3 is hideous. It looks like a self assembly job and you put it on upside down.

    • It serves a certain purpose, which is not looks

  • Would rather have the Carrera tbh.

  • Porsche best cars in the world

  • "Drag race".....lol

  • add just sport chrono and the porsche factory exhaust option and the base 911 will run sub 12 in the 1/4 and 0-60 in the mid to low 3's

  • Hey man is there any chance at all you will finally race the best Porsche in the Porsche family or do we have to wait another year for that? Guess... Of course it is the GT 2 RS!! I am so keen to see the time also please get rid of the 911 Turbo S... Try the GT 2 RS for once in your live... Thanks

  • You got nailed …

  • Would love if you add Porsche Turbo S, Taycan Turbo S & Cayenne Turbo S to this mix.

  • Good race boring but good.

  • You should have the new GTS against GT3. Carrera is a joke against GT3.

  • if you can go for the turbo s or gt3 (or gt2 rs lol)

  • Do a 911 gt3 vs 911 turbo s

    • BRUH, I was playing forza and was thinking about who would win between these two cars 😂

  • That standard 911 is really impressive. It would have great to try the break test with warmed carbon ceramic breaks. Nex time Matt :-)

  • ID TAKE THE OLD 4.0L straight 6 carerra !!!! THE NEW ONE IS 1000cc less with two plastic turbos

    • Straight 6? It's a flat 6 bruv

  • Why make the comparison "which one you'd buy? " No one, apart from favored customers and wanker influencers, can actually buy a GT3, so stock car therefore is the best (only) choice. Unless you puff up more for a Turbo. GTS will be sweet spot for road useres with a spare £90K folding.... lol.

  • I bet he wont race this to a stock GTR track edition. 🤣🤪

  • Can you make a video of GT3 vs GT4?

  • This shows me one more reason to be very happy with my base 992 with chrono package...Thanks


    • @The Zig Maybe you just don't know how to drive

    • @Main Man Ok caveman, not surprised your tribe died and you're scared of modern reality

    • @The Zig So what? Might as well play a PlayStation

    • PDK you muppet, no manual can keep up with them

  • hi mat, you shoud compare the gt3 with the new m4 since they god the same hp

  • Is…the one you like?🤥

  • Someone please teach that knob how to fuel up without spilling on the bodywork?

  • You’re definitely the next Jeremy Clarkson with that tech yawn…. Lol

  • Tune that Carrera!

  • 1M race pleaseeeee!

  • Comet s2 and comet growler

  • Do a race where you have each one of the 911 models, from the standard Carrera all the way up to the Turbo and Turbo S as well as the GT3!!

  • The GT3 would be the better buy as it keeps its value or will go up, where the 911 base model is just a car that will depreciate. So financially the GT3 makes more sense even though entry costs are higher.

  • Hamilton could not with Checo 🤫

  • Gearbox is quicker, but also no turbos so response is instantaneous.

  • HP and Torque on the GT3 ?????????

  • I am toying with the idea of a base 992, the long delivery times are putting me off. The base is a stonking car.

  • Bro the porsches entry level re really impressive.(when I said entry level I meant the only the default Carrera , cause the Carrera Gts and the Carrera 4 Gts re not entry level.)

  • absolutely

  • 11.4 for 140,000 pounds? 12.1 for 120,000? Get an RS5 sportback, and a Macan GTs and still have money left for hookers.

  • I own a 997.1 base carrera. I dont regret a second for not having a S, 4S etc. Its a perfect daily car with human maintaince prices and its still a 911 with all the joy and smiles per gallon. It shares the same cylinder volume as the 997 turbo, and the weight is almost the same as the 997 GT3. I will keep this car forever. :) So dear future 911 buyers, try out the base model - it will not dissappoint you.

  • M8 ,M5 c's and m4 all wheel drive would be amazing.....

  • No mat, it's not allowed, but I'll allow it

  • Don’t think Matt was too pleased when the other guy said that carbon ceramics can be dangerous in the morning 😅

  • honestly i think the money difference aint worth it (unless you are god damn rich lol) that entry level is just damn impressive. And to be fair throw a stage 1//2 tune with a different exhaust for a couple grand and you are even closer to the gt3 times. Because it is turbo charged there is so much more to gain. (offcourse not counting track times, and that is what the gt3 actually is made for)

  • I am so interested in comparing 992 carrera 4 GTS vs. 992 GT3 this sohould be an amazing thrilling race

  • Would've been fun to also have the gt3rs

  • The bit that's worth it in the GT3 is not on a straight line anyway.

  • So your favourite 911s are the slowest from all 911s .. lol

  • Boxter or cayman 718 vs 911 Carrera

  • Can you bay 2 base models for the price of the gt3?

  • Gt3 sound makes me wetter than a rainy day at sea

  • I would get the base model and do downpipes, exhaust and a tune would probably be a rocket and still probably save some money

  • GT3 is overrated Only the Gt2 and turbo s are Real Porsche killers

  • Great Video!👍👏 Am Investing my time and money in crypto now, this new price is clear sign for new investors to come in 🤩....

    • Lol 😂😆

    • A friend that I referred to him just recivce $7,050 profit after 10 days investing.....I became jealous.....lol

    • I think i have gotten myself an expert here, i don't think trying him is a bad idea.

    • Sometimes it's to believe that things happen for a reason we lose to Learn now we gain when our mind is made up I gave him a try and He never failed me and my friend he's been investing with him for months now

    • He's great! I enjoy working with him.

  • I wonder if someone tuned the normal model and just upped the boost, nothing else........... how it'd fair. Twin Turbo v6 at 385HP seems awfully low. I'd say their is a lot of headroom on that motor.

  • This video doesn’t need to be 9 minutes long. It’s padded to give you ads.

  • I've checked carwow and they always workout more expensive then rivals

  • It would be good to see this GT3 take on the m4 xdrive

  • Obvious result, however, flash that 911 ECU and retest!! Cheap upgrade around 500hp from the 3.0! Going to be VERY similar then, especially in gear roll. Make it happen @carwow

  • Lada riva

  • We all know the more important comparison for these 2 are lap times around a circuit. But of course everyone likes to see a drag race.

  • Carrera sounds like a vacuum cleaner.

  • Nobody: Not the result I expected.

  • Its called PORSCHE NOT PORSCH 😭😭😭🤣

  • Make the intro longer next time

  • The best number plate for a 911 on the entry level car

  • Carbon brakes also save something like 10kg per corner, no? Not only is the resulting 40kg substantial, it's all unsprung weight at well. I had carbon on my F430 Spider and it felt really light, I think in part thx to the brakes. Performance wise, they make no sense whatsoever on a street car, but for good steering feel and light ride I'd TOTALLY recommend them if the crazy price is affordable to you.

  • For the sake of fairness for the Carrera you should turn around and race it against a Civic Si just to show the difference between Porsche and the rest of the world.

  • put Ford everest

  • I’m interested in a test between the GT3 and the 992 GTS …!!!!!

  • GT3 is such a great track day car but just not that fast down the straight line…. But, who cares?

  • 4:12 for those who just want to see the drag race and not the fluff in between

  • Now do a 911 vs Cayman GTS ! cs-tv.org/tv/video-1rbTL_Q09Xg.html

  • Depends how much money you have

  • My Dream Porsche is a 992 Targa 4 GTS🤤

  • That Base Carrera still MOVES.....No such thing as a slouch Porsche.

  • Mat: "Sorry guys if I offended you" We jerking off at home... ¬¬

  • no

  • So......Carrera is junk. Good to know.

  • Never straight pipe a Porsche 😂

  • Another Carwow drag race where the Porsche isn't ignored.

  • Would love to see you race the entry level taycan vs 4s vs turbo s

  • Can you test the gt3 against the gt3 Gran Tour package?
