This Porsche 911 GT3 changes its third engineOctober 19, 2020
One of the owners of the German Porsche 911 GT3 sports coupe was able to drive it 300,000 kilometers, most of which was covered on the race track. The car has already received its third engine.
Nick, owner of the 996 generation 911 GT3 sports coupe, has driven his car for 950 laps on the Nürburgring and an astonishing 3,000 laps on similar circuits. According to some mathematical calculations, this amounts to a total of 40,000 kilometers on track alone. As you know, you have to pay for everything – this car has its third engine. The latter was the 4.0-liter V6, which was borrowed from the later 911 GT3 generation 997. The transmission is installed from the 997.2 GT3 model.
The redesigned powerplant and gearbox work in tandem with a suspension designed specifically for track riding.
The car also features a carbon fiber hood, roof and rear bumper to reduce weight, as well as Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R racing tires. This Porsche 911 GT3 even boasts a fire suppression system that sits on the passenger floor.
Nick had already planned to see the car fly the 300,000 km mark, although the coronavirus pandemic has delayed that goal. However, he still hopes to “succeed” in the coming months. At the beginning of the video, the car’s odometer showed a mark of 292,984 km, and the car drove 293,000 km. while on the track. A few more laps, and Nick will easily achieve his goal.
