Review: Chris Harris drives the new Porsche 911 GT3 | Top Gear

Dipublikasikan tanggal 20 Apr 2021
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.

  • Yes petrol engine symphony, STOP Electric Car nobody love

  • I inherited my Grandpa's 1972 Delta 88 Royale with a 350 rocket engine. He never drove it over the current 55 m.p.h. speed limit at the time. I got the car at 45k and that engine would sing with power and lasted well over 200k leaving must cars in the dust with a top speed of 115 m.p.h. . Break in periods on gas engines should be a lot longer in my opinion.

  • how many cup holders does it have?

  • I cant even imagine how it must feel to drive something that can handle so well. Ive got a dumb bumbly 5th gen camaro and I think it handles wonderfully haha

  • So the pdk "Harris approved" or does it need to be the manual?

  • Porfection!

  • 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.

  • "It's still the Master." Maybe that is a Doctor Who reference.

  • Chris Harris bringing a bit of mental health awareness into a car review. One of the reasons why he’s one of the best

  • I never look things this way...but this time I must say it. It makes me sad that I won't be able to own or drive, or probably even see such gt3 :(( What nice car!

  • More please, same recipe :)

  • Do you have to change the oil after break in??

  • 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!!

  • Amazing car!

  • Why do ppl lean or sit on cars? Esp with jeans that have studs on them. I know ur a driving god Chris but come on get off the car.

  • 👍💜💙

  • Chris is back🔥🔥🔥

  • Передачу теперь ведёт какой-то бомж

  • We heard you the first ten times Chris - there are double wishbones at the front....

  • the new top gear is rubbish , its pretty much over when clarkson , may and hammond left , give it up BBC its finished

  • Never been a Porche fan but now they’re starting to grow on me

    • You will learn to love them as you grow older. Its a piece of art on wheels

    • Porsche is a religion or you’re in or out.

  • Why go all electric. Thats not good

  • Those jeans need carrots with the massive turnups?

  • Bloody good work to the lads and lasses who made this.

  • Just needs jcr exhaust system it’s fully complete

  • "Nitty gritty car journalism. I LOVE it!" So do we Chris, so do we.

    • Si ma di quel colore non si può guardare, è un insulto alla bellezza di questa macchina.

  • Why? Whyyy? I don’t want to buy it and now you say two times i should buy it if i can...

  • Unless we start mining lithium from the moon or invent some revolutionary electric battery technology that uses abundant resources we won't go ALL electric any time soon

  • Sports car engineering has peaked. This is it. You can't go any higher than this. Thank you, Porsche.

  • Gorgeous automotive journalism. Thank you!

  • Are they really going to force-meme electric cars to the point we don’t see cars like the GT3 anymore? Doubtful.

  • What's it like to drive on the average pot-holed road, though?

    • So, it's like everyone other Porsche from the last 10 years and more removed from the raw driving experience of yesteryear.

  • I’m waiting for a Manual review

  • i will own this soonj

  • That belt disturbs my OCD

  • Chris got that Pep Guardiola vibe going

  • Just got the notification: “Chris Harris drives the new Porsche 911 GT3” - CLICK!

  • Truly a masterpiece.

  • 13:46 damnnnnn that's not easy

  • I wonder if a gt2 or 911 turbo takes bumps better than the gt3. Does anyone know the answer to that question?

  • Si ma di quel colore non si può guardare, è un insulto alla bellezza di questa macchina.

  • Chris with his rolled up jeans and kicks is always so into his videos/reviews.....he's brilliant....Never get rid of that child in you! And I need to win the lotto as this car is smashing.

  • perfect

  • Your seatbelt Chris!!!!!

  • Seatbelts are driving me nuts

  • It’s actually not a flat 6 haha

  • So, it's like everyone other Porsche from the last 10 years and more removed from the raw driving experience of yesteryear.

  • What a weapon! You sounded out of breath after that lap, pulling a few G 😉

  • Simply Porsche is the best sports car !! Of all times !!!

  • defeatist propaganda. might as well be saying "you will eat the bugs."

  • Chris' excitement clearly on display....picked up a brand new GT3, drove it all throughout the night and tracked it the next day......all with the same set of clothes he had on the day before...

  • "Music instrument"....

  • How the hell does double wishbones negate the stiffer spring rate?

  • Orgasmic!

  • "We're going to miss them when their gone."- Chris Harris. Helluva endnote by far.

  • Keeping it real with Chris and a GT3!

  • Piece of art

  • this guy needs a stylist lol

  • There will never be another Chris Harris

    • Agree with Chris's comment on black wheels. Let's move on from this trend.

  • Chris! You seem to be eating GOOD. A GOOD POWER Walk in the morning and evening will keep you in check.

  • Sports car engineering has peaked. This is it. You can't go any higher than this. Thank you, Porsche.

  • I loved watching this video, but just couldn’t get past your twisted up seat belt… lol 😂

  • Who is this guy?

  • chris the type of guy to still wear the same jeans from high school, and we love him for it

  • My order is in Chris..! Magnificent cornering and very impressive driving..!! You have sold me.!! Wow.!! what a play machine...Pure Porsche Perfection.!! I have been fixated on getting a 2016 Lagonda Taraf for $500,000 and i think my youth has caught up with me.! ....Bring on the 911 GT3...

  • OMG, Trillions like and best comment for you because you are best on Earth and follower respect you, we need videos in Real 120fps or 240fps 8K HDR10+ Dolby Vision IQ resolution clarity quality and Sound in FullHD Surrounded 3D Dolby Atmos

  • Always a pleasure watching Chris thrash on the latest 911. 💪

  • You are getting fat Chris, makes no sense now does it riding in a gt3 :p

  • luv it !!

  • Exhaust note is just a level below what the Le Mans spec GTE-Pro car sounds like, and that is most excellent.

  • Electric wont work

  • My favorite car and my favorite car reviewer, instantly clicked the video. Great video Chris

  • Agree with Chris's comment on black wheels. Let's move on from this trend.

  • "We're going to miss them when their gone."- Chris Harris. Helluva endnote by far.

  • Truly amazing car I’m just more hooked on Porsche, Henry C and Chris H would be an amazing duo.

  • 🇺🇸WWG1WGA🇺🇸 Gratitude!!!🙏🍀👍

  • *THE BEST IS YET TO COME* " 🙏🙏 🇺🇸WWG1WGA🇺🇸 Thank U *PATRIOTS* 4 your DEDICATION 2 Love, Life, *Liberty,* *Freedom* & The *Pursuit Of Happiness!!!* 😄XRP_mo🌝n Pa$$🍀

  • Hopefully this synthetic fuel product they're working on works out, and we can continue to have mechanical engines like this long into the future.

  • Superb vid, supreme track machine but I would be to worried about getting it pranged or worse!

  • This was fantastic!

  • 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...

    • Electricity is for toasters, not cars. Never give in to the madness! Long live internal combustion!

  • Chris Harris is the best

  • I'd love to see an oil analysis after that break-in and track drive. Chris, I love your skills and insight but please demonstrate those skills more professionally and stay off the bloody candy stripes on track! Sheesh!

  • Been watching Chris for 10+ years now.... best journalist, never dissapoints

  • Such a beautiful car

  • Man that transition @ 13:50 was top notch! I love how Chris can articulate all of the feelings and aspects of a car while running it flat out.

  • 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.

  • Only car journalist that I'll tune in for instead of the car

  • it's a bit overweight and overpriced

  • No one could ever keep up with you Chris, if it's 911.

  • pinstripes on wheels should be a crime amazing car tho

  • when GME & AMC go to the moon, I shall sign myself up for one.

  • C'mon they didn't change the oil/filter after the run in? That should've been done...

  • Looks up prices of used GT3s. Yup still out of my price range.

  • Chris Harris needs to move on to other things. His reviews are all the same.

  • Electricity is for toasters, not cars. Never give in to the madness! Long live internal combustion!

  • 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
