Recently, Porsche officially confirmed that the new 911/991 Carrera lapped the Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 40 sec - about 13 seconds faster than its predecessor - but was still a matter that had yet to be determined. Until now.
An American customer took his new Carrera S to a drag strip in the US to see how fast the car could run the quarter mile. While the result is unofficial, it still stands at an impressive 12.04 seconds. That’s comparable to the current Nissan GT-R which has an official quarter mile time of 12.05 seconds.
The Porsche 911/991 is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six with direct injection engine that delivers a total of 400 HP. It will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 189 mph. By comparison, the current Nissan GT-R is powered by a 4.2L V8 engine that produces 424 HP.
