Since the Nurburgring Nordschleife reopened to tourist drives (touristenfahrten) earlier in the month, more and more people are now going to the Nordschleife.
This is good news for those hoping to spy a car or two out there quietly, or in this case, not so quietly, doing testing and validation runs.
YouTuber Automotive Mike was able, over a day and with some hiking around the track, to capture the sound of the new Type 992 911 GT3.
The first thing that is readily apparent from the video is that this thing is loud. Really loud. You-can-hear-it-miles-away loud. Which we approve of wholeheartedly!
What point is there in having a super-sport spec Porsche without it making its presence known? It appears as well that previous recordings of the 992 GT3, such as when it was testing at Monza, had baffled exhausts, as the car has gotten a lot louder since then.
The second thing that is readily apparent from the video, especially going through the Quiddelbacher Hohe turn at 42 seconds in, and down the Dottinger Hohe at 1 minute and 50 seconds, is that this thing is fast. The green car in front of it on the Dottinger Hohe is a 991.2 911 GT3 and it easily keeps up with it, almost getting alongside before disappearing behind some trees.
And best of all, the only camouflage on this version appears to be a slight rear bumper shroud, so the fully centralized exhausts, massive spoiler, huge front air intake, and underbody aerodynamics are on full display!
