The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3's 4.0L Naturally Aspirated Boxer Six-Cylinder Engine

The new Porsche 911 GT3 engine revs to 9,000 RPM. The 4.0L boxer six-cylinder is naturally aspirated, producing 502 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque. The engine is packed with clever features including individual throttle bodies, two resonance valves, rigid valve train, DLC-coated rocker arms, large-bore cylinders, and a dry sump oil system with seven pickup locations, ensuring proper oil flow under track conditions. The 4.0L has seen numerous updates since its introduction in the 2011 GT3 RS 4.0, and has been used in subsequent 911 GT3 variants since.
The 2022 GT3 has also lapped the Nurburgring in just under seven minutes! Thanks to weight reduction through material selection such as carbon fiber reinforced plastic, titanium engine components, and special glass, the curb weight is kept low. Handling is improved with a new front and rear suspension, completely redesigned from the standard 911. Grip is maximized with Michelin Cup 2 R tires, and significantly increased downforce over the previous GT3.

    Please make a video on how 911 Turbo S (992 version) achieves 0-60 in 2.2s. How does it rank higher than all the hypercars and electric/hybrid cars with only a twin turbo flat 6 outputing just 600 HP. I searched everywhere and cannot find a detailed, systematic explanation on this.

    This is exactly why I dislike EVs, I am really afraid fun cars will disappear because everyone is hyper-fixated on EVs. I mean why is no one considering environmentally friendly fuels? EVs will never be able to offer the manual transmission, high revving engine experience.
    Do you think the future will be full of boring EVs, that you can't even drive, because it drives itself?

    additionally you can open the intake valve prior to the exhaust valve closing and prior to the piston reaching the intake stroke due to the low pressure created in the exhaust tract - thus drawing intake charge prior to the actual intake stroke's piston drawing down. .

    I've been trying to say for awhile now, since the Subaru BRZ came out, that the way forward is ITR's (Individual Throttle Bodies) in modern Naturally Aspirated engines. The lightweight, high torque, instant throttle response, is exactly what drivers want. Mate that to a 5 or 6 speed Manual Transmission, and you have the perfect driver's car.

    Imo under most applications the best design is the straight 6. Weather it be a big diesel or small displacement motor the straight 6 has proven itself for decades to be one of the best lubricated simpler longest lasting more dependable motors designed to date. I find it difficult to think of a car company that hasn't used one that's regarded as reliable sometime in its history. Lots of engines make power but a straight 6 makes more than a v with the same displacement, and not many of the V's are as bomb proof as the straight 6. Even after being abandoned my manufacturers it's on it's way back after almost 100 years after its introduction.
    Ps the pdk is better.. if you like handicapping yourself like the 70% of American porche buyers your welcome to do so. Ha. I'd understand if it cost more but.... it doesn't. Do u really want a slower car because it's fun?

    Yes, Nordschleife is a relatively fast circuit but it's not Monza-style fast (where poweeeeeerrrrrr matters the most), it's Spa-style fast: lots of long sweeping turns put an emphasis on the car's stability and lateral grip, not on its power. The comparison with Radical proves it, the Radical is only slightly faster even though it has a much higher power-to-weight ratio.
    So it's the tyres and suspension that do the trick for this Porsche rather than its engine. The latter might very well be great, but it doesn't really matter in this case.

    You should have compared to the LT4 engine. It only runs a conservative 9 psi yet puts down 580 rwhp on a dyno. The GT3 engine - as good as it is ‐ produces about 450 rwhp. The 1 L S1000RR engine puts down 195 rwhp, so it's wins the power per L contest easily
