We are fortunate to see a wide variety of nice cars at K1 Speed, as many of our customers are automotive enthusiasts, off-road enthusiasts, motorcyclists and racing fans. It occurred to us that our readers might appreciate these cars, trucks and motorcycles as well, and thus our Carspotting features were born! Last night, this incredible Porsche 911 GT3 (the latest 997 model) paid a visit to our K1 Speed Carlsbad indoor karting center in San Diego, California. Unfortunately the sun was going down just as the customer arrived, which meant we didn’t have many opportunities to get a photograph, but that didn’t deter us from taking a closer look at this beautiful car!
With a 3.6 liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine producing 415hp, massive disc brakes and an advanced suspension tuned for the track, the 997 GT3 is a tremendous performance car that is respected the world over. This particular GT3 though had a host of accessories that made it even more at home on the racetrack, including a roll cage, an aftermarket adjustable suspension, and a free-flowing exhaust system which gave the car a devilish high-pitched wail! The owner was happy enough to start the car for us and rev up the engine, and we can tell you that it sounded incredible! We would like to thank the owner for taking the time to talk to us, and we were pleased to hear that when he isn’t racing at Willow Springs or Buttonwillow in his GT3, he satiates his need for adrenaline at K1 Speed!
