Just raced a 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S ragtop from 50mph.
I was slowly pulling away the whole time to about 160..

searched on the net about 1/4 mile times, weight, HP, 0-60, etc... but getting mixed information???

Does anybody know of a reputable website so I can get accurate info on this car???


thanks!!

The 996 Turbo S Coupe (6-speed) runs the quarter in the very high 11's at about 119 mph.

The Cab 6-speed is at least 0.2-0.3 sec slower.

Was the Turbo you ran a 6-speed or a Tiptronic?

P.S. - The Turbo Coupe has 444 hp and runs 0-60 in the high 3's (tested as low as 3.7 sec.). It weighs ~3500 lbs.

How can the trap speed be 119 when the car weighs 3500?? plus the 4 wheel drive.... maybe the ceramic discs really help the unsprung weight??

My Z does 119 and has about 440HP ?? but it weighs 3100..

I have a friend of a friend with a Z06 with 435 rwhp and 402 rwtq that ran one (ragtop) from a roll and put bus lengths on it!! Who knows, maybe the p driver couldn't drive, but he was def. racing since my friend told his friend who told me that after the p driver lost the cars were lined up again and the z06 decimated the p car.

What I predict with the headers + light clutch = 123MPH trap speed from 119MPH

this is 'real world' results

I'll let you know in mid Sept.
