If you happen to be inside a Porsche 911 GT3 registered on your name, it means you’re a happy man or woman and don’t often dream about other cars. Nevertheless, if you happen to cross paths with a 918 Spyder, you will be tempted to lust for Zuffenhausen’s halo machine.
Sure, the GT3 might deliver the kind of pure driving sensations that are impossible to achieve in a gasoline-electric beast such as the 918, but a Porsche hypercar remains unique.

But what if the other driver would want to battle it out with you? We are here to give you just that - a race between a 918 Spyder and a 991-generation GT3.

Both machines are dressed in red, with only the carbon fiber elements of the 918’s Weissach package disturbing the devilish appearance.

The Porsches are wearing what appear to be United Arab Emirates plates, with the race taking place on an empty stretch of highway surrounded by dunes.

As we’ve seen on an occasion when the 918 raced a Lamborghini Huracan, the battery charge level in the hypercar can make quite a difference when this goes up against a supercar. Even so, the outcome of this fight is a predictable one.

Nevertheless, the driver of the 918 did let the GT3 get a bit of a head start, in a move that definitely kept the less-than-legal party rocking.

While we’re not here to see who wins this straight line challenge, we can tell you that the combined soundtrack of the two Porsches is nothing short of aural heaven. The melange between the 918 Spyder’s racing-inspired V8 and the flat-six at the back of the GT3 is not only extremely rare, but also superb in itself, since both mills are naturally aspirated.

With the 918 Spyder having now reached the end of its production, more and more units will start to trade hands and we have a feeling the number of shenanigans such as the one seen here will rise.
