Petrolheads, assemble: it’s a new Porsche 911 GT3. Which is basically like saying ‘it’s a new Bowie album’ to the music nerds. This is benchmark sports car, the one by which the steering feel, chassis composure and engine response of every other supposed supercar on the market is measured against. The 992 GT3 gets a racecar engine, a ginormous wing and a rather special new knob. And this is what happens when Chris Harris is tasked with running that glorious 4.0-litre flat-six engine in, just so he can open the taps and spank it around a track.

14:46 - you might be able to drive home from the 'Ring if you don't bin it, but I'm guessing you might have to replace the rear tyres first. :) I reckon anyone but a bloody legend couldn't drive a GT3 all weekend at the 'ring without crashing the hell out of it. I think I have wrecked about 1.5 billion pounds worth of GT3 RSRs at the 'ring. And died about 127 times, while doing it. :)

Yeah but it weighs 1.5 tons! How would a little all-carbon 911 body with a 2-litre turbo flat six go against this monstrosity? Say, something under 900 kilos all up, and with around 400 horses, and a red-line north of 10-grand? Because, you know what? I reckon such a car, based loosely on the 1972 RSR bodyshell, would spank this thing. And if you did that, you'd also be able to whack 20KwH of batteries in the front , add two electric motors, each with 100 BHP, and turn it into a hybrid rocketship with on-demand AWD, a sub-3-second 100km/h time, and it could also pootle around as a front-drive electric town car with about 40km of range. THAT is the 911 I dream of. It's a function of technology to make things better. And I am sorry to say it, but a 911 that weighs 1.5 tons is worse than a 911 that weighs 1-ton. Period. End of story. Lightness is efficient. Weight is the enemy. Herr Porsche would be spinning in his grave if he knew how fat and luxurious the 911 is. It does not need any of that garbage. Screw luxury. That is not what driving is about. Driving is about connecting the driver to the road in the best way possible, and the best way possible is to make your car lightweight.

Watched this video must be 5 times the whole way through. As an avid car fan, I well up every single time. These cars are the last of an era and its going to be a great great shame to no longer have them being produced. The sound, the driving enjoyment the overall experience, the way it makes you feel will be no more. Fantastic review but also an upsetting reality for all petrol heads for what's coming in the future. I'm 24 years old and dream to one day afford one of these things, unfortunately it'll all be electric when/if that day ever arrives. We all need N/A engine's and manual gear boxes in our lives!!

The might be the last time he has the opportunity, because of electrics. Sad, sad. You know I am in favor of selling/buyingthem, But only if the market demands it. I take issue with the prevalence of electric incentives and puntive taxes penalties on internal combustion engines. Unfortunately the left doesn't agree with live and let live...

Can someone please tell me what exactly Chris Harris says at 18:10 about “black wheels should, of course, be banned from any kind of BLAH BLAH BLAH because they end up disappearing.” I really don’t understand the words he said there.

Quick beetle that

Technology always trickle down from F1 and Aeronautical. That trickle takes decades for refinement for durability and reliability. Currently electric vehicles require extremely expensive, hazardous and short shelf life cells. I know the political narrative is pushing electric so everyone just accepts it because they're afraid of cancel culture. Combustion engines won't be going anywhere, hybrid technology is the only path consumers would accept in the masses. Until a new technology that doesn't require a rare earth material that's not readily available, hazardous to develop. Electric is a city commute feel good idea, no more no less. When a Tesla can go from New York to California in a 24hr period, maybe I'll change my mind. Until then, don't be such a sheep. #PoliticalScienceHoax

I really don't understand why Chris Harris has to review a non manual GT3. It's atrocious. It's like okay everyone else is reviewing dual clutch GT3s but they are just automotive journalists. Surely Chris Harris will get to review a manual since he puts work on the track. Nope.

Finally, someone who agrees with me that black wheels are one of the dumbest things ever created for a car. I'd order this without the idiot wing too.

This is how you need to be on top gear! This is you back to your best rather than playing a character on tv! Also what a shame we are coming to the end of internal combustion we need to do more to stop the stupid electric revolution
