Is the S/T the ULTIMATE Porsche 911?

Could this be the ultimate Porsche 911?

Invite to the new 911 S/T. On the face of things, it looks incredibly similar to the GT3 Touring. No shock, truly, as the majority of the bodywork is the exact same.

However, hiding beneath the fairly controlled look is the upgraded and outright raucous variation of the 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six found in the track-focused 911 GT3 RS. That benefits 525hp and 465Nm.

Instead of using the PDK gearbox of the RS, the S/T takes the six-speed manual from the regular GT3. It features a few tweaks, consisting of a much shorter last drive and a single-mass flywheel.

Despite using the RS' track-honed engine, Porsche engineers have tuned the chassis of the S/T to be the ultimate road-focused device. This includes a streamlined suspension setup and the removal of rear-wheel steering.

With a price of ₤ 231,600 and an exceptionally restricted production run, you 'd hope this to be a really unique entry into the renowned cars's storied history. Is it? Mat supports the wheel to learn …

    that shake in revs once you shift sounds so good. Don’t know other cars than 911 doing this shake.

    This car is one of the most beautifully designed 911s Porsche has ever come up with. And I could listen to the Porsche guy’s explanations for hours…

      If you’re interested, Henry Catchpole on Carfection channel did a segment with Mr. Andreas about the GT3RS. It’s a good watch!

    I would’ve thought the original R8 and the Gallardo with the gated manual would be up there as well for best manual gear shift. Jeremy Clarkson loved it.

      R8 LMS also gated with 7 Speed MT.

      I think it’s a sinle clutch setup tho so it’s probably not a very fast shift

    That Porsche guy knows his creations to the core ❤️ unlike some manufacturer who don’t even know much. Another masterpiece from Carwow.

    1. cookieDad Avatar

      And that’s why Porsche is able to produce these amazing quality machines. Even the top-level guys absolutely love their products and know every single detail. It more than just a job to them.

      “That Porsche guy”, have some RESPECT for Andreas, he is not “just a Porche guy”, he is the master mind behind EVERY 911 GT car and he is the main reason why the GT3 still has a manual transmission.

    what I love about Porsche is how specific they are in their design while having variety, but a specific type of variety, like they have GT road cars that are sporty and fun but comfortable enough too while having that driver’s car experience(like this car or the Turbo S)and if you want more and want to sacrifice some comfort for performance they have the GT3 and GT4 for you and if you’re a Racer and you want your Porsche for the Track they have the RS for you, but they’re ultimate a Sport/Performance Car and they’re very focused and specific on that and they keep refining it over the years instead of changing their strategy or losing their focus on this mission, they consistency and insistency on this is admirable

    We all know Matt loves cars, and for once the person sent by the manufacturer gives me the feeling they also fell in love with this vehicle. Thanks Andreas!

    That ST has a perfect design for me.. And the blue with the decals just works, the interior is beautiful aswell. That engineer Andreas i think really explained stuff well and he really knows every little detail which is expected but he got a charm.. What else do you expect from a carwow video 👌

    Love they used the ST name for this. The original ST is arguably one of the greatest and rarest classic 911’s.

    Seeing that such a masterpiece of a car has been tested on the twisty mountain roads where I learned how to drive has given me goosebumps! That’s really the best choice considering how uneven the road surface is to test the great car stability and performance! Matt is by far the most involving car journalist!

  19. DPCcars Avatar

    Absolutely loving the vibe in this video! 🚗💨 Matt’s genuine passion and Andreas’ meticulous knowledge combine to bring out the spirit of the 911. It’s heartwarming to see the fusion of dedicated engineering and sheer love for cars. And let’s not forget that iconic shake in the revs when shifting, truly a unique Porsche trademark! 👌

    Does anyone else feel that this combo of precision engineering and raw passion is what sets Porsche apart from the rest? Can’t wait to see what they come up with next! 🌟 Keep these gems coming, Matt!
