Porsche is known for the superstructure of cars. A 911 Turbo S not only manages 0-60 in less than 3 seconds, but also over and over again without ever overheating or slowing down. We know because we made 50 starts in a row with a 2014 Turbo S. If you think this is not the case even with high speed running, think again. Because, according to Porsche, the 992 911 GT3 can drive over 3000 miles continuously at 186 miles per hour.

The company knows because it tested the claim. A test team drove a prototype of the GT3 5000 km on Volkswagen's Nardo test track. The car accelerated to 186 mph, maintained that speed until it ran out of fuel, quickly refueled, and accelerated again. The company said the GT3 had to perform flawlessly on this test to meet its durability standards.
The GT3's engine also spends 22,000 hours on a test bench, so Porsche can collect a lot of data on emissions, performance and durability. The test team simulated circuit layouts and let the engine run as if on the track, with strong acceleration followed by short braking zones. Full throttle was used "for a very high proportion of the time," said project manager Thomas Mader in a press release. The idea is that with these grueling tests, the GT3 should be able to handle your average day of the track without any hiccups.
