    Porsche 911 GT2 vs E92 M3 ESS




    I'm shocked the p-car got him up top, where the blown M3's are strongest. Good race nonetheless.

    EDIT: just did a quick search - "The American auto magazine Motor Trend tested a 2008 Porsche 911 GT2, achieving a 0-60 mph time of 3.3 seconds,[4] and a quarter mile of 11.3 seconds at 129.1 mph (207.8 km/h). "

    +8 to get motortrend time, puts P-car at 129, and M3 at 127, sounds about right. DCT or 6 MT ?

    sounds like DCT, at 00:33/34 you can hear it shift. also gains a good car length back on the p-car

    everything looks about right, good find, thanks for posting

    Nice run but I swear the Porsche is playing with the throttle or missing a gear perhaps. But I swear he is clearly out of the throttle and back on at least 2X... Maybe its just me

    Can't tell if that M3 is DCT or manual.

    Still, a stock 997 GT2 trapped that much higher in the mile than a blown M3?

    Any more details on what boost the M3 was running?

    Seems like it, I just don't know for certain. Regardless, surprised it didn't pull up top.

    Yes. Unless this is one of the weaker kits.

    Want to know the boost on that M3, I'm going to put this on the front page.

    The M3 is DCT you can hear clearly in the shifting especially the 2nd and 3rd gear shifts... I'd like to know what the GT2 traps when the driver is no BS'ing and/or shifting poorly cause it pulls away at will it seems on the top end.

    its definitely DCT in the M3. Also, since it says "650hp" for the M3 I would venture to say its a vt2-625 or one of the higher level kits.

    ESS Tuning VT2-650 supercharged E92 M3 takes on a stock Porsche 997 GT2

    Here is another great video from our Russian friends at dragtimes.info. A stock 997 GT2 dyno's in the low 500 wheel horsepower range. The supercharger on the E92 M3 here is an ESS VT2-650 which is the highest horsepower stock internal offering from ESS pushing 8.5 psi of boost. Dyno numbers for the VT2-650 have been claimed to be in the 600 wheel range so we are surprised to see the trap speed at the mile favoring the GT2 with 179.67 mph versus 169.46 for the M3. Both clearly are very fast cars but 10 MPH is quite a difference especially considering it is in the favor of what is supposedly the much less powerful car. Interesting result to say the least.

    I doubt this is a 650 kit because alot of them run an upgraded fuel system which is not out to the public yet, if I had to put money I would say its a 625 kit

    Why would the GT2 be sandbagging or why would you think it missed a shift?

    It finished a full second slower than an advertised, not to mention it drops out of the video, comes back ahead, then like surges a little back and forth, almost like hes playing with the gas pedal.

    When you miss a shift, it will fall back HARD. And even if he shifted fast and properly you would see it make a sharp drop back a little bit.

    This one fell back, slowly moved up, stopped, then moved forward a little.

    I would like to see another run. If it happens exactly the same way, then somethings up woth the car, as tryin to replicate your actions deliberatley is very hard to do.

    I don't think it is messing with the gas pedal as much as the M3's constant acceleration due to the shift speed magnifying the time it takes the GT2 to shift manually.

    If there were mis-shifts I don't think he would have pulled past or trapped as well.

    Would like to see more runs as well. I don't know if I really believe that GT2 is stock.
