Wow that sound is intoxicating. I don't think I have ever heard gears so fast in a production GT3.

I think that car is going to be amazing with PDK. Ditto GOLFFR...need to win lotto

^ Although the above CUP has a 991 chassis, it car has the venerable Mezger engine and 997 drive train, not the new 9A1 GT3 engine nor the dual clutch in the 991 GT3. It has a sequential gear box. It is not an indication of what is coming in Nov. Sounds great nonetheless.






This is what's coming to the USA in Nov:

Sounds great at high speeds. But I wonder what the M3 V8 would sound like in a 911 GT3.

I would shove the BMW V8 in the Porsche 911 GT3 rear seats since it so big.

A mid-engine V8 911 GT3. Yeah, that's the ticket.

As great as it is, the s65 doesn't hold a candle to this engine in any way shape or form. It didnt hold a candle to the 997.1/.2 GT3 engine by any stretch in any way shape or form either. Period. I'll take a porsche Motorsport engine any day over one made by m. The Porsche engine is a masterpiece only equalled by maybe the 458 Italia engine...maybe.

Ill challenge that statement. The S65 is one of the sweetest engines produced. I owned both the 996 GT2 and 997.1 GT3, I have a little experience with Porsches. When you consider value/performance the M3 is a wicked car. Driving a sc m3, I dont miss the P car

Don't mistake my statement by any means. The s65 is beyond a wonderful engine in any aspect: sound, power, delivery. It is particularly great in terms of value, but that is because bmw needs to give you that value because they don't command the prices porsche can.

Case in point, the m3 gts. It was meant to compete with the GT3 yet could barely do so with a 5 year old 997.1 when it came out. And do you think the s65 was a great value in te m3 gts when the gts was 150k?? I certainly do not.

And your comparison of a sc m3 doesn't quite make it apples to apples. The m3 will still no matter how much power you have NEVER equate to the connected and organic feeling of a porsche let alone a GTx porsche. And while the m3 sounds phenomenal, it doesn't match the pure mechanical symphony that the GT3 or f car v8 produces.
While the m3 may be one of the sweetest produced, the GT3 defines that statement and may be THE single sweetest engine at any given time. Only porsche can top themselves IMO.

Furthermore, the s65 that bmw uses in alms is very different than the one we have in our street cars...says a lot to me...

I hear you. The GT3 and F458 are examples of the epitome of sports cars. To make comparisons and relations of those cars to the M3 says something. In no way am I trying to take away anything from the cars you mentioned, just shedding light on how much respect I have for the M3.
