Three Porsche 911s compete in a drag race!
Two Turbo Ses and a GT3 face each other
The Porsche 911 Turbo S is a champion at Carwow. It holds the absolute record for the quarter mile with an incredible time of 10.1 seconds. This means that it surpasses many other more expensive supercars and even electric sedans such as the Tesla Model S and... the Porsche Taycan.
The match of the day should prove to be more balanced as three Porsche 911s will compete against each other. The new 911 Turbo S Coupé and Cabriolet will meet for the first time the extreme 911 GT3. The ideal opportunity to see the differences in performance between two generations of vehicles.
The two 911 Turbo S models are of course powered by the same engine, a 3.8-litre flat-six producing 650 bhp and 800 Nm of torque. They are both four-wheel drive and adopt an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Cabriolet weighs 1,710 kg compared to 1,640 kg for the Coupé.
On the other side of the road is the 911 GT3. The latter hides a 4.0-litre flat-six with 500 bhp and 460 Nm of torque beneath its bright red paintwork. It sends all this power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. On the scale, the 911 GT3 takes the lead with just 1,430 kg.
