Drag race with Porsche 911's bare Carrera and GT3 ... Well, compare the two

Posted: October 10, 2021 Updated:

I have watched many videos of drag racing various Porsche models and cars of other manufacturers, but this video is about drag racing Porsche 911 base model Carrera and Porsche 911 GT3.

It seems that the result is known even before you see it.

Porsche 911 GT3 992 type.

And the Porsche 911 Carrera is also 992 type.

It is the latest 911 of the same 992 type, and after all it is too different to compare these two units, and by any chance "Carrera wins overwhelmingly! If it becomes something like that, it feels like Porsche is also bad ... ^ ^

Because GT3 is overwhelmingly better in terms of specs ...

The weight of the GT3 is also lighter.

But of course, there is a difference in price (?), So GT3 is overwhelmingly more expensive in terms of price.

The GT3 (992) is the main vehicle price in Japan: 22.96 million yen.

The main vehicle price of the bare Carrera (992) is 14.29 million yen in Japan.

In other words, there is a price difference of 8.67 million yen even if you compare it with the main unit without any options.

Therefore, in this drag race, rather than "which is faster" or "which wins", it is possible to confirm "how great the carrera is by competing with GT3 with such a different price and different level".

If you write the results first, GT3 is faster in all 1/4 mile drag races.

Well, this is a result that I know as I wrote many times.

GT3 is 11.4 seconds.

Carrera is 12.1 seconds.

Next, I will try the same drag race at the rolling start from 50 mph (about 80 km), but the result is still GT3 win.

However, as you can see from the video, it doesn't feel like "Wow, it's really separated !!!".

If anything, it feels like "I'm doing my best for Carrera!"

And what impressed me most was the last braking test.

GT3 is PCCB.

* PCCB is an abbreviation of "Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake", which is said to be the highest grade among Porsche brakes, which is said to be the best in the universe, and the ceramic brake disc used is extremely light and lightweight. (About half of a normal iron rotor).


On the other hand, the bare carrera is a so-called base normal brake.

Compare the performance of accelerating the two cars in the same way and applying full braking all at once on the same line to "stop" the car.

As a result, this also resulted in "there is no difference than I expected!"

Of course, this small difference is actually big, and even if you compare the speed by just accelerating 400m in a straight line, it does not mean that it shows all the performance difference of the car. I also understand.

However, considering the price difference of the vehicle body, if you usually use it instead of the circuit, even a bare carrera is not enough! I thought it was a video that made me think that the performance of the bare carrera was "awesome".

Well, in my case, both of my beloved carrera are bare carrera, so I may have been more fond of them and just watched the video thinking "Mr. bare carrera, don't do it ^^!" But (laughs). ← Maybe this.
