Finally! Months after the pandemic excluded journalists from Russia to travel to the launch of the new Porsche 992 GT3, we finally got our hands on it. Moscow Raceway was the venue of choice, and because two buses come at once after a long wait there would be 718 GT4s to drive as well. Certainly, I’ve had worse days.
A new Porsche GT3 is about as big as car news gets, certainly for those of us who like to hammer around racetracks every now and then. If you go and visit the car park of the Nurburgring Nordschleife for example, you’re likely to find it at least half full of GT3s from the 996 generation all the way to today’s hot new stuff — the 992. And the reason for that is quite simple: there’s just nothing else like it. If you want a car that will fly around a racetrack all day long and then drive you home without shattering your bones on real world roads… you’re probably going to end up in a car made by Porsche’s fabled GT department.
