In the latest episode on Jay Leno’s Garage, Justin Bell takes the Porsche 911 GT3 on some back roads on the way to Laguna Seca where he meets up with Patrick Long and his GT3 race car.

The latest Porsche 911 GT3 now packs 435hp from an all-motor (naturally aspirated) flat-6-cyl. Supposedly all the fun happens between 40mph and 100mph according to Jay Leno. I can agree with him but let’s check out what Justin Bell and Porsche’s only American factory driver, Flying Lizard’s Patrick Long, has to say about it all in the video below. Enjoy!
