• Here is a preview of what the Porsche 991 GT3 will sound like with an aftermarket exhaust

      Some Porsche purists are worried that the switch from the GT1 race inspired flat-6 block in the GT3 will take away from the sound quality of the GT3. Porsche is using the same facility to produce all the direct injected blocks and is sharing them among 911 models (the GT3 also sharing the timing chains, head bolts, AC compressor, and alternator from the 991 Carrera) to cut down on costs leading to speculation that the aural quality of the GT3 would be impacted. The video below shows that there is no need to fret as the GT3 sounds as great if not better than ever.

      Keep in mind this a cell phone recorded video so it is not the best quality. That said, the GT3 is going to sound even more amazing than it already does once uncorked with an aftermarket exhaust.

        Yeah I'm sure its a lot stronger. I bet 9FF already has one under the knife as we speak. Maybe in the future the derivation in the GT3 will become the "neue Mezger", as eventually it will have to replace everything, including the race engines. Any factory engine that revs like that and builds power like that is something special, regardless.

        Agreed but I'm not sure how long it will be until we see direct injection in racing. I'd feel more optimistic if Porsche was racing it.

        Same. I think they just want to get their money's worth, so to speak, from the R&D they've done already on the old engine. I'm thinking in another few years it will start to transition in.

        I'm sold on the engine sound:
