    Stock Porsche 997.1 GT3 3.6 liter flat-6 Dynojet dyno - 382 wheel horsepower

    Always great to see dyno numbers for the Porsche 911 GT3. The 997.1 GT3 features the 3.6 liter GT1 racing block based naturally aspirated six cylinder motor. The car is rated at 415 horsepower at the crank. So what does it put down at the wheels? How about a highly underrated 382 wheel horsepower on a Dynojet dyno. This just goes to show how far Porsche underrates the GT3 and additionally how much power they squeeze out exceeding 100 wheel horsepower per liter which is simply incredible.

    Compare these numbers to what the GT3 RS 3.8 and GT3 RS 4.0 hit. The 3.6 is at 382 wheel horsepower whereas the 3.8 hits 419 and the 4.0 hits an astounding 457 wheel horsepower. Porsche simply gets incredible power out of this motor.

    Graph and video below.

    Porsche is lucky. The corporate accountants allow the engineers to work their magic without much inhibition in the name of cost saving. Looking forward to 991 dyno numbers as well.

    I still want one of these badly, too bad (for me) they don't depreciate. Sat in a few, couldn't get out. It's like it was custom made for you. Definitely one of the purest cars ever made, as always. Someday.

    I have also just sat in a few. I'm eager for an opportunity to drive one someday

    That rear engine configuration will lose less power than a fr car though. I think the number is fairly close to being accurate.

    It will be slightly more efficient, yes.
