The first two vehicles line up on the starting line. As for a drag race. We see a break of hunting Panamera Turbo S E – Hybrid, Sport Turismo, the most muscular of the family of Porsche. At his side, one discovers with amazement a Carrera GT, the supercar of the German brand launched in 2003. A confrontation, which seems to be rather uneven, given that the Carrera GT is a true race car approved for the highway. A spacecraft that is not to be compared with a vehicle with four seats, in particular at the level of performance.

And yet, against all odds, the Panamera picks up the win with a 0 to 100 km/h shot down in 3.4 seconds, compared with 3.9 seconds for the Carrera GT. A result that is not so illogical. Of course, the break shows a deficit of two cylinders compared to the supercar, and it weighs about a ton more! But it has four-wheel drive, a hybrid system, and its V8 is turbocharged. This allows it to display an output of 680 horsepower, compared to 612 for the aspirated V10 of the Carrera GT, which can only count on two-wheel drive to get power to the ground. Let’s not forget that the Panamera is equipped with a automatic transmission PDK double-clutch, while his opponent made a confidence to a manual transmission.

The meteor that has dethroned this break hunting-doped electricity, is none other than the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Despite a disadvantage of 100 horsepower, the 911 benefits from a weight more content, and four-wheel-drive. The sports coupe takes its course. The 911 Turbo S blasts the 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. The joy is however short-lived, however, as this model is made to steal its title from one of its derived two-wheel drive: the 911 GT2 RS. More light of a hundred pounds, this pistarde about the powder with its flat-six twin-turbo 700 horsepower. The difference is not phenomenal, since the GT2 RS abat the 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, 0.1 second better than the 911 Turbo S.

The 911 GT2 RS is still not the ultimate winner. With its awd, its hybrid system and its 887 horses, the last supercar as of the date of the German manufacturer, the 918 Spyder, pushes even the limits of performance. At the wheel of the vehicle, going from 0 to 100 km/h requires no more than 2.6 seconds.

The 918 Spyder is the Porsche homologated for the road which goes faster from 0 to 100 km/h: 2.6 seconds only. Porsche
