The two sports cars went head-to-head in three drag races and the competition was tight, but there can only be one winner.
Porsche builds some of the most incredible cars in terms of acceleration and handling. One of the more popular cars in Porsche’s lineup is the 992 generation 911 Turbo S.
One of the best features of the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S is its incredible drag race acceleration numbers. Whether it is a drag race with a McLaren 765LT, a Nissan GT-R, or even with a Porsche Taycan EV, the 992 generation 911 Turbo S is a difficult car to beat.
According to Porsche’s specifications on the 2022 911 Turbo S, 0-60 mph happens in a blisteringly quick 2.6 seconds. It is safe to assume that when modifying, those times improve dramatically.
In the video by Drag Racing and Car Stuff, a modified 992 generation 911 Turbo S takes on a Lamborghini Huracan EVO in a set of very close 1/4-mile drag races.
Porsche Flat Six VS Lamborghini V10
The first race starts with the Huracan getting a jump off the line against the 911 Turbo S. However, the Porsche quickly catches up and crosses the line before the Lamborghini with a 1/4-mile time of 10.5 seconds at 126 mph. It is worth noting the Lamborghini was only 2/10ths of a second behind and produced a higher trap speed of 129 mph.
The second race fared much better for the Porsche’s launch, as the 911 Turbo S moved rapidly off the line. Once again, the Porsche won the race with a nearly identical time of 10.5 seconds at 126 mph, while the Lamborghini did an 11.0 second time at 128 mph.
The third and final race showed a slight improvement in the Porsche and nearly identical time for the Lamborghini. With those times being so close, driver skill is more of a factor than anything else.
Best Modifications For The Porsche 911 Turbo
The Porsche 911 Turbo is already one of the fastest production cars in stock form. However, modifying your 911 Turbo takes it to the next level. To maximize performance and achieve the best 1/4-mile times in a drag race, a few modifications can really help.
The first is stickier drag racing tires. One of the biggest challenges of drag racing is putting all the power down to the ground. Stickier drag racing tires help give a car more grip.
The next is engine tuning. The 911 Turbo’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat six engine responds very well to modifications. According to tuner Litchfield Motors, adding an exhaust, air filter, and ECU takes the car from stock 640 hp to 820 hp.
The third modification is reducing weight. While the stock 992 generation 911 Turbo S is a relatively light vehicle at, 3,646 lbs, removing items like the back seats can really help improve performance in a straight line.
Combining these modifications like the car in the video makes the Porsche 911 Turbo one of the best drag racing cars.
