Ferrari 458 Speciale vs Porsche 911 GT3 video twin test (2014)

Published: 13 October 2014 Updated: 18 August 2015

Here’s the full video road test of the Ferrari 458 Speciale and Porsche 911 GT3. It’s a behind-the-scenes film of our twin test in Wales, first featured in the October 2014 issue of CAR magazine.

Each month, our iPad edition features videos such as this and you can read more about the CAR magazine app and our best deals here.

But for now, enjoy the titanic battle between Ferrari and Porsche. Speciale versus GT3. Italy against Germany. They’re two remarkably different sports cars: one is mid-engined, one famously has its flat six slung out the back. The yellow Ferrari costs nearly twice as much as the 911.

Irrespective of their price tags, the Speciale and GT3 are two of 2014’s most visceral sports cars. Watch the full video twin test above, hosted by contributing editor Ben Barry, and if you missed the full 10-page feature in the October 2014 issue of CAR, you can catch up on our digital tablet editions here. Enjoy!
