Porsche 911 GT3 Sails Towards 200mph On The Autobahn

Here’s a little secret that many automakers won’t tell you; most high-performance vehicles on the market can actually go faster than their manufacturers claim.

If a firm says a particular model tops out at 190 mph (305 km/h), there’s a good chance 200 mph is achievable with the right bit of road and any potential top speed limiters removed. Not always, but it’s been known to happen.

Take the 991-generation Porsche 911 GT3 for example. According to the German brand, 190 mph is the max you can expect from one. However, one owner recently eclipsed that speed with ease and with quite a bit of breathing room.

The clip below, filmed on the Autobahn, shows a 991 GT3 hitting 197 mph (318 km/h) with at least 1,100 rpm left in seventh gear and while still gaining speed at quite an impressive rate. Given enough room, you can bet your bottom dollar this GT3 would probably have sailed through the 200 mph mark.

Now of course, this is based on the speedometer which, at high speeds, is never entirely accurate, especially compared to a GPS or professional data logger. Even still, it’s obvious that Porsche was rather conservative with its performance claims for the GT3 – not that we’re surprised…
