This right here is some Friday vibes of the automotive type. The car shown in this video is a Porsche 997 GT3, it’s what we’d technically call a 997.1 because it’s the first iteration of the gnarly series of Porsches that put a lot of power into a really classic package. This is a 415hp car out of the box, capable of making 0-60 blasts in less than 4-seconds, and having the kind of handling characteristics that are normally reserved for full-pull race cars. Over the years the power output has risen along with the hardcore nature of the interior appointments and suspension.
If we had the money and were 997 GT3 shopping, we’d be looking for an OG one like this because we feel like (on paper) the car delivers that best of both worlds cross between hardcore track car and actual machine you can drive so well. As we’ll see people hot rod everything and they do it all over the world.
We’re gonna hear this car wail though a new all-titanium exhaust that shaves weight and sound freaking brilliant. Keep reading for more information.
(Here’s an excerpt from the caption posted with the video on YouTube) –
Just listen to this 2007 Porsche 997 GT3 with a Akrapovic ” Race Line ” Full Titanium Exhaust. Weight savings are incredible! The 3.6 Lt MEZGER engine stock exhaust is 40Kg , the “AKRA ” Titanium exhaust is only 14.5 Kg.
Yep, and the weight saving is over the rear of the car where is counts . Power is up with the McChips stage 2 “reflash” of the computer firmware. Porsche Factory output is 415 BHP.
Now lets see and hear 432.3 BHP @ 8010 RPM. The Dyno was a MAHA Dyno, certified by BMW Germany to be less than 1/4 BHP accurate.
