  1. It's like allie vs allie.

    But the race is only to illustrate if the 918……….which cost 5 or 6 times as much as the 911 is a worthy investment.

  2. Funny thing, the 991.2 Turbo S has a faster 0-60 time than the 918 (2.5 vs 2.6) but the 918 can sustain that acceleration longer.

  3. This video is heavily edited. On the last clip the 918 appears to be going double the speed of the Turbo, and there is no way of this happening with both cars going full throttle. The only clear thing is that the Turbo appears to be better at launching and should be faster up to some speed which makes sense given it is lighter.
    So, this video is not real for sure, but it is also not true.

  4. yes..the porsche 918 is fast porsche ever is fast than911 turbo end the carerra gt end gt3 rs end gt2

    the 918 is faster porsche ever

  5. this video has to be taken with a pinch of salt , its purely made for entertainment , theres a cameraman in the middle of the road on one run clearly of which neither car are flat out and have added to it numerous runs to get different  angles , which completely removes any kind of reality.

  6. I love the 918. It is awesome and has a hybrid setting. When driving, it charges up the electric motor that powers the front wheels, and then when it is fully charged, it can be an all electric car!  This also means it launches as an AWD car, because the electric motor powers the front wheels, and then the electric motor cuts off at about 128 mph, so it is the best of both worlds! Awesome car, there needs to be a mile drag race between this, LaFerrari and the P1 McLaren!

  7. Either that was not a 911 turbo S or the race is fixed for the 918 to win.  You can clearly see at the end there where the 911 isn't moving at its full potential.  Even if it were to beat the 911 turbo S, the margin would not have been that great.

  8. The new 911 Turbo S is so fast off the line it would leave the NISMO GT-R for dead if they repeated this with it. I have never seen one have a bad launch.

    I agree though that they 'fixed' the 918 launch to make it closer like they did with the McLaren F1 vs Bugatti Veyron. In the 918 vs 650S vs Agera video at Goodwood the 918 set off like it was attached to the worlds most powerful elastic band under tension

  9. Thank you for a short to the point clip. I hate it when there's 20 minutes of crap just to get to a 5 second race

  10. I know, a car's potential can't simply be judged by a drag race, but the 911 was certainly NOT 550,000 pounds slower than the 918.
