Porsche 918 Spyder v Tuned 911 Turbo S: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everybody who helped set up this race:

– 911 Turbo S:

It's time for an incredible Porsche vs. Porsche drag race!

We've got Porsche's 918 hypercar going up against a 992 911 Turbo S!

So let's see how the 2 compare. Starting with the , it's powered by a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8 combined with 2 electrical motors. Integrated, they can produce 887hp and 1,280 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all 4 wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission, and the automobile suggestions the scales at 1,674 kg.

Along with it we have the 911 Turbo S. It's still equipped with the exact same 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six as the standard car, however, it's had the ES Motor 750 plan fitted to it. As an outcome, power output has actually increased from the stock 650hp and 800Nm to 888hp (1hp more than the 918!) and 1,000 Nm! It sends this power to all 4 wheels via a PDK dual-clutch automated gearbox, and it can be found in somewhat lighter than the 918, at 1,640 kg.

The concern is, while the 911 Turbo comes in at an overall cost of around ₤ 210,000, the is valued at around ₤ 1.4 m! Will it prove its worth? There's just one method to find out … LET'S RACE!

      Your 911 Turbo S with that wrap/paint job looks wicked with the blacked out taillights too!

    The 918 is aging so well – still looks absolutely amazing and would put many modern car design to shame!

    1. Lisicz Avatar

      Not only by design… Almost 10 years old car And still make 400m under 10s? Most of cars are shamed 😁

    2. Coach Avatar

      So true

    3. FRAGGERSOULZ Avatar

      @Lisicz tbh it costed 887,000 pounds so a sub 10 sec qmile was expected. The holy trinity of 918 spyder, P1 and the LaFerrari are timeless classics. Design language peaked in that era. nowadays cars are so boring. even the super and hypercars.

      The weight, updated gearbox and traction control system are making the difference here

    Look, the 991 & 992 generation of the 911s are so capable it’s mad. What Porsche engineers have achieved with those cars is mind blowing & the way ES motors has managed to get the most out of them is just mad. Respect!!!!!!!

    9.9 for something made close to 10 years ago here soon is mad impressive.

    One of the coolest things about these cars is that they can just do race after race and these Porsches will keep performing without any issues at all. Both of these cars are rock solid.

      The new 911 seem to be struggling with highway driving.
