Porsche 911 GT3 Races a Fighter Jet In One Emotional Battle

People turn to all sorts of insane action in order to raise their dopamine levels and Porsche is here to demonstrate its cars are just as good for getting your kicks as a jet fighter.

You know the Zuffenhausen people, a simple showcase wouldn’t have been enough, so they turned to a scientific demonstration. Well, sort of.

Supercars racing fighter jets have started to become mainstream, so Porsche turned to a bespoke experiment instead. It all started with one lucky and strong subject, whose brain activity would be measured throughout the process.

The man was first offered a shotgun ride in a fighter jet. Actually, we’re talking about what seems to be a derivative of the Aero L-39 Albatros jet trainer aircraft.

Subsequently, a Porsche driving instructor showed the volunteer what the 911 GT3 is all about on the Zandvoort race track in the Netherlands. Throughout the video, a 911 Cabriolet Turbo S follows the track special.

Perhaps Porsche used that aircraft due to the Cayenne’s connection to the Bratislava plant in Slovakia, or maybe the Turbo S Cabrio followed the GT3 closer to show just how close their performance is, who knows?

Regardless, the conclusions of the experiment demonstrate our (mostly) 2D everyday driving can rival the 3D acrobatic maneuvers of an aircraft. Sure, the 2G contemporary road cars can pull are no match for what Jet fighter have to offer, but the brain seems to be happy with what the GT3 delivers. Now about that funny hat...
