Porsche 911 GT3 vs. Nissan 350Z Race Gains an Unexpected Competitor

You’ll be shocked when the third car appears.

Highway on-ramps are great opportunities for acceleration runs, and this Nissan 350Z driver in Europe found an impromptu challenger in the form of a Porsche 911 GT3 as he merged onto the expressway. But while this video appears to be a typical battle between the new sports cars, it's what happens at the end that really comes as a surprise.

The video is filmed from the perspective of the Nissan 350Z driver, who has apparently fitted his sports coupe with a supercharger. As he rounds the on-ramp, he comes across a 991-generation Porsche 911 GT3 in the right lane, and merges into the last lane to accelerate up to speed. The Porsche takes the challenge and keeps up, eventually passing the Nissan.

The two sports coupes gain even more speed, and then a totally unexpected third vehicle joins the race: a first-generation Volkswagen Golf hatchback. This compact is clearly packing something special under the hood, because it passes both the modified 350Z and the 475-hp Porsche with ease before speeding off on its own.

Watch the video below, and you'll surely be laughing in disbelief like the Nissan 350Z driver is when the little Golf shows its stuff.
