Exotic cars and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the automotive industry and even specific cars altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular supercars available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
2022 Porsche 992 911 GT3
Porsche continues to deliver a vast variety of luxury models for any situation, whether it’s a daily commuter or weekend track toy. The GT series accelerates Porsche into a class of motorsport that is enjoyed by car enthusiasts of all kinds, and it starts with the 911 GT3. The 2022 Porsche 992 911 GT3 is the latest step forward for the German automotive manufacturer, as the appearance, performance, and comfort are altered using state-of-the-art technology to enhance the experience of driving a 911 GT3. The exterior features a newly-designed rear spoiler and hood vents to achieve perfect aerodynamics while cooling areas of the car that see temperature increase during track driving. The inspiration of motorsports finds its way inside the Porsche 911 GT3 with added features like the Multifunctional Sport steering wheel and drive mode switch, carbon fiber full bucket seats, and a “track screen” available to limit information surrounding the tachometer. Inside and out, the 2022 Porsche 992 911 GT3 focuses on lightweight design and performance, and that’s even before we talk about the engine.
It’s easy to see the beauty behind the redesign of the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3, but the performance is what makes it one of the best supercars on the market. The iconic naturally aspirated 4.0L six-cylinder boxer engine revs to 9,000 rpm, generating 502-horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque, an almost identical set up to the GT3 Cup Cars. This engine, which was first introduced in the limited-production 2019 911 Speedster, has been further optimized for use in the new 911 GT3 with new pistons. Managing the power produced comes in available options of a 7-speed Porsche PDK or 6-speed manual transmission, making the track-focused 911 GT3 a functional driving experience for all to enjoy. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph with the standard seven-speed PDK takes only 3.2 seconds and top track speed is 197 mph.
Why To Buy
The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 was created to improve on the already successful models before its time, which now is still considered to be some of the most desirable vehicles for car collectors. The experience of driving a vehicle of its caliber truly explains where Porsche began as a manufacturer and where it’s heading in the future. Although securing a chassis may be a tough task at hand, the reward of experiencing a race car on the road is much greater. Even with a mandatory year of ownership before selling, it’s no surprise that the newest GT3 will be a successful investment for 2nd ownership, that is if you can find someone willing to part ways with one of the best Porsche models ever made.
Porsche Design 911 GT3 Chronograph
Porsche Design features a Sports Chronograph configuration program that allows the customer to fully spec a watch just as they would a vehicle at the dealership. The process interconnects the watch and automotive worlds while offering the ability to create a one-of-one example to match your vehicle or dream Porsche model. The announcement of the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 left Porsche Design with the idea of creating an exclusive 911 GT3 Chronograph for owners of the new chassis, using the configurator to match their vehicle order.
Each Porsche Design 911 GT3 Chronograph features the ability to completely customize the appearance to match a specification using a special login provided by Porsche after ordering the vehicle. Like its motorized role model, the new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 exudes inspiration with its ornate design, consistent performance, and exquisite craftsmanship. The close connection between the timepiece and the sports car is unmistakable at first glance. The watch is driven by the Werk 01.200 movement, which can be viewed through the GT3 Wheel styled winding rotor. The Porsche Design GT3 Chronograph is sure to pair well as a collector’s example next to the all-new Porsche 992 911 GT3. The black Porsche sports car leather strap features “GT3” script and is adorned with contrasting stitches made from Porsche vehicle thread in four colors.
Why To Buy
A “why to buy” quickly turned into a “why to own” considering the Porsche Design 911 GT3 Chronograph is only offered to purchase for new 911 GT3 owners. The styling and performance of the GT3 Chronograph by Porsche Design perfectly compliments the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3. As an exclusive release, this timepiece will grow in collector value for both watch and Porsche enthusiasts.
