Listen To The Porsche 911 GT3 Shift Into Seventh Gear At 190 MPH

Yes, you can watch this Porsche 911 GT3 hit 197 mph (an indicated 318 kp/h), but the best part is to hear the thing shift into seventh under power. Just...listen to it.


Take in the full glory of this lovely blue 991 GT3 charging forward with the so-fast-you-will-probably-never-experience-it-in-your-life sixth to seventh gear powershift.

I’ve ridden shotgun in a 991 GTS doing about a buck eighty on the Autobahn. It was, hm, disconcerting. The front end bobbed around “like a Boston Whaler,” as my driver, Chris Kippenberger, put it.

What a difference a big front splitter and a rear wing make.

This is pretty sweet... ‘buck-seventy is all I could muster on an empty oval...

Good thing his front tire pressures evened out before he shifted into 7th... I don’t want to think of the calamity that might have transpired with 0.1 bar front tire pressure differential...
