Whether the Porsche 911 is called a supercar or not, one thing we do know is that it can hit insane speeds when called upon.

At a recent Texas Mile event, one particular 911 validated its status as a supercar after posting a ridiculous - for its standards, at least - top speed of 212 mph. Consider that a 911 Turbo can hit a top speed of 194 mph, we beg the question as to where that extra 16 mph came from. Add that to the fact that it can hit the quarter-mile in just 10.61 seconds and surely, something must be cooking under that hood that isn’t of stock production.

Whatever performance enhancements that 911 Turbo carried, the feat nonetheless remains incredibly impressive. Reaching 200 mph on a 911 Turbo is impressive in itself. But hitting 212 mph?

That’s over-the-moon amazing. Respect, indeed.

Check out the video above and watch this 911 Turbo destroy Texas Mile on its way to 2-1-2.
