Here we GO! It's time to learn which Porsche GT cars is best in a drag race!

We've got our hands on the all-new Porsche GT3 RS, and it's going up against a GT3, GT4 RS and a GT4! The question is, will it be a tidy sweep for the new GT3 RS? Well, let's take a more detailed look at the statistics.

Beginning with the GT3 RS, it's powered by a 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine that can deliver 525hp and 465Nm. Power is sent out to the rear wheels by means of a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and it weighs in at just 1,450 kg. However while it's relatively short on weight, it includes a hefty price tag, with costs beginning with ₤ 192,000, and increasing to upwards of ₤ 235,000!

Along with it, we have the GT3. Naturally, it includes the very same 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six, which in this instance puts down 510hp and 470Nm. This is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch, and to select one up now it will cost around ₤ 146,000.

Then we get to the Caymans. They're both powered by 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-sixes, with the GT4 RS putting down 500hp and 450Nm, while the GT4 provides 420hp and 430Nm. The GT4 RS is the lightest car here, at 1,415 kg, while the GT4 matches the GT3 RS at 1,450 kg.

It's easily one of the best-looking drag races we've ever run, but will these track-focused legends make for an interesting race in a straight line? There's only one method to discover … LET'S RACE!

      This Porsche video was not as good as the other ones. The new Porsche are too big and heavy they need to make them better sizes like they did in the past. Porsche’s are not as nimble as they once were and when you drive one you feel like you are driving small truck 😂

    I’m an absolute fan of 911 Porsche’s, but I must admit that those GT4 Cayman look freaking amazing

      New Porches are too big. Look at how much bigger they are now vs the 80’s, they used to be a nimble sports car that were not overweight. New 911’s are the size of family cars!

    Based on the audio, the GT4RS sounds like the most raw and visceral experience, I’d take that! Since I’d be rich, I’d then buy a Porsche 911 touring for daily driving 🙂
