The Porsche 911 is an iconic sports car that has created some of the most amazing car machines ever. The company’s latest Turbo S models, both available in coupe and convertible flavors, are packed with horsepower and torque. It would be a nail-biting race with just the two, but the folks at Carwow added a third candidate, a 991.2 GT3.
Both the Turbo S Cabrio and Coupe pack a 3-liter flat-six engine with dual turbocharging that produces 650 horsepower (484 kilowatts) and a torque of 800 Newton meters. Both have four-wheel drive while power is passed through an eight-speed gearbox. GT3 uses a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six turbines that produce 500 hp and a torque of 460 Nm.

A rolling race shows Cabrio’s disadvantages compared to Coupe features. The coupe was able to pull away from both the Cabrio and the slower GT3.

This is probably due to its lighter dead weight. What was surprising about the challenges was how close the coupe and convertible versions were in terms of performance, which was impressive in the rain.
