Here’s why investing in a 992 GT3 might be a good idea

By now we know that almost every manufacturer is heading in the direction of electrification. More and more internal combustion engine cars feature mild or plug-in hybrid technology in order to reduce the negative impact on the environment and cover the latest strictest emissions regulations. Porsche – a manufacturer set on tradition, at least when it comes to their 911 model – has also started down that road. They even introduced a fully-electric car – the Taycan. Moreover, the Panamera and 911 Turbo S now feature mild-hybrid technology. There is one Porsche, however, that stays true to its roots – the GT3 – and the YouTube channel MotorHeads does a good job of introducing you to the ins and outs of it.

In theory, a car like the normally-aspirated, high-revving, track-focused 911 shouldn’t be able to exist, especially now that everyone is going for smaller turbocharged engines and a hybrid powertrain. But there it is, with a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-six, revving up to 9,000 RPM and producing 502 horsepower (375 kW) and 346 pound-feet (470 Nm).

Moreover, it can be had with a manual gearbox, if you so choose. The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 will most likely be the last non-hybrid GT3, as the push for more eco-friendly vehicles does not leave the engineers with many options.

The 992 generation of the 911 GT3 will be a swan song for the naturally-aspirated flat-six, so it might be wise to invest in one while you can because this iteration of the track-focused rear-engine 911 will mark the end of a glorious era.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
