Porsche 911 evolution competition

Porsche has just begun a new engine sounds competition for keen fans of the German marque. If you know your Porsche 911 engine sounds you get a chance to win your way into a Porsche 911 Evolution driving course. Which, sounds pretty awesome. Here’s how it works. Porsche has the listening challenge broken up into five categories. You hit play and guess which engine you’re listening to. We gave it a nudge and it’s a tough ask. Even hardcore Porsche enthusiasts will struggle to get all five correct.

But never mind that, because it’s quite good fun. The first category (Carrera) wants you to guess between a 964, a 996 and a 997. Second is “Classic” where you must distinguish between a RS 2.7, RS 3.0 and RS 3.8. That’s probably the hardest. Next up is “Race Derived” and the choices are 964 RS 3.8, 996 GT3 and 997 GT3.

The next category is “Turbo.” This is especially hard as most Turbos do little more than cruise about town meaning it’s rare to hear one in full flight. And you’ve got to distinguish between the 930, 996 and 997. Lastly, you have “Motorsport,” and whether or not the car is the 935, 911 GT1 or 936 it don’t matter because they all sound amazing.
