How Fast Can A 750-Horsepower Porsche 911 Turbo S Deliver A Christmas Tree?
Despite hitting 175 mph, it is still not the fastest tree delivery out there!by Alina Moore, on
Decorating the Christmas tree and then waiting for Santa to deliver his gifts can be hard for any kid out there. Hennessey however has another problem: it wants to know how fast can you deliver a Christmas tree in a 750 horsepower beast?
And yes, we are not talking about any regular Porsche 911 Turbo S. The car featured in this video it is actually John Hennessey’s personal machine. And while a standard 911 Turbo S is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine that delivers a total of 640 horsepower, Hennessey’s machine delivers a total of 750 horsepower!
With the Christmas tree attached to the car, the modified Turbo S was able to hit a top speed of 175 mph. Not bad, but way less impressive when compared to what the car could do with no trees attached. Once the extra weight was removed, and the car came back to its normal aerodynamic features, the 911 Turbo S could hit a top speed of 206 mph. We are talking about a 31 mph difference, and is not like racing driver Spencer Geswein didn’t actually push the car.
However, we have to remind you this is not the first time Hennessey tried something like this. Back in 2019 a 1,012 horsepower Jeep Trackhawk HPE1000 was able to hit a top speed of 181 mph with a tree attached to the roof. So yes, a Jeep shamed a Porsche!
