Can A Ferrari F8 Tributo Pin Down A 1000-HP Porsche 911 Turbo S On The Drag Strip?

Can A Ferrari F8 Tributo Pin Down A 1000-HP Porsche 911 Turbo S On The Drag Strip?

How does this bone-stock F8 Tributo with RWD stack up against a tuned 1000 HP Porsche Turbo S with AWD?

Brooks from the Drag Times YouTube Channel put out a video of an F8 Tributo taking on a tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S in a couple of Quarter-Mile passes. It’s not the first time that these two potent exotic’s have come together, but I really am curious to see as to how well a stock Ferrari F8 fares against a tuned Porsche. The showdown took place at the Atco Dragway in New Jersey.

Porsche Denies Rumors About a New Halo Hypercar, But That Doesn't Mean It Isn't Happening

Porsche Denies Rumors About a New Halo Hypercar, But That Doesn’t Mean It Isn’t Happening

Is Porsche really cooking a mid-engine GT1 successor?

Porsche’s sports car lineup is quite diverse, having numerous high-performance models based on both the 911 and 718. That said, the German carmaker currently doesn’t have a proper flagship model. Previously that role was filled by the hybrid 918, but its production was ended back in 2015. Of course, Porsche brought back the 911 GT2 RS, which was based on the 991 and they even did a homage to the 935 Moby Dick, based on that GT2 RS. With this in mind, we’ve been getting mixed reports about a potential “GT1 successor,” some of which are quite interesting.

Watch A Tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S Obliterate A Lamborghini Aventador SV and A Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti On The Drag Strip

Watch A Tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S Obliterate A Lamborghini Aventador SV and A Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti On The Drag Strip

The tuned 911 Turbo S shows no mercy to the 488 Pista Piloti and the Aventador SV in a series of straight-line races

The team at Carwow brought three fast cars to the drag strip. The contenders include the Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti, the Lamborghini Aventador SV, and a Porsche 911 Turbo S. The Pista Piloti and Aventador SV make more power than the Porsche in the standard form, but the latter is tuned to make 150 horses more for a Hulk-like transformation. Courtesy of this, it absolutely annihilates both the 700+ horsepower cars in a series of drag races! How often do you see a Ferrari and a Lamborghini get treated with such utter disdain?

This Racing Yellow Porsche 918 Spyder Wouldn’t Be A Bad Way To Spend $1.23 Million

A low-mileage 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder is up for sale in the UK at RM Sothebys

Porsche developed the 918 Spyder as the replacement to the Carrera GT from September 2013 to June 2015. In a different light of the ’Holy Trinity’ bolstered by the mighty McLaren P1 and the gorgeous Ferrari LaFerrari, the Porsche was undoubtedly the most distinctive of the three.

This Porsche GT1 User’s Guide Is Probably the Best Video You’ll See This Year

This Porsche 911 GT1 User’s Guide can cause some drooling, as well as bad financial decisions

There are cars out there that have cemented themselves as the ultimate car from their respective brand. Although occasionally, the title of flagship supercar is being passed on as new models come by, the 911 GT1 “Strassenversion” was the ultimate road-going Porsche, in the 1990s. Strangely enough, we get a detailed User’s Guide to it, by DK Engineering TV, which prides itself as being a Ferrari specialist channel. Apparently, they like other cars as well, and looking at this chassis number 5 Porsche 911 GT1, we understand completely.

Someone Paid Porsche 911 GT3 Money For this 1981 Porsche 924

Someone Paid Porsche 911 GT3 Money For this 1981 Porsche 924

This one-in-15 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport went for over $250,000 and we’re not surprised

The Porsche 924 was manufactured between 1976 and 1988. Although it was launched as a successor to the 914 and was supposed to sit at the bottom of the company’s model hierarchy, it came with a lot of significant bits and marked a lot of firsts for the company. It was the first street-legal Porsche to feature a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. Not to mention, also the first car from the company to come with an automatic gearbox.

There were many iterations and models of the 924, one of them being Carrera GTS. The automaker built 59 examples of it and 15 of them were the quicker ‘Clubsport’ models. One of these 15 was on Bring-a-Trailer’s auction recently and it was sold for over a quarter-million dollars! That’s way more expensive than any new 911 that you can buy today.

A Porsche Electric Hypercar Is Certainly Possible, But The Wait Might Kill You

A Porsche Electric Hypercar Is Certainly Possible, But The Wait Might Kill You

Once again, the wait for electric technology is holding back a truly awesome car, but the wait will be worth it

The Porsche 918 Spyder was originally showcased at the 2010 Geneva motor show as a concept and was introduced in production form at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show as a production mode. Only 918 examples were destined to be built, and by December of 2014 each and every one of them had be spoken for. Not a bad run for a car that started out at $845,000 or $929,000 with the Weissach Package. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that Porsche promised in that very announcement that the 918 Spyder would be succeeded by an even better model. Yet here we are in 2021, and not even a concept has seen the light of day. So when is a successor to the 918 Spyder going to happen? Well, not before 2025, and that is something you can take to the bank.

The Schuppan Porsche 962CR Is Made Out Of Pure Dream Fabric

The Schuppan Porsche 962CR Is Made Out Of Pure Dream Fabric

A road-legal Le Mans prototype is just what the doctor ordered

Four. That’s how many members the Schuppan Porsche 962 CR Owners’ Club would number if anyone bothered to set it up. By contrast, head counting at the equally fictitious Ferrari 250 GTO Owners’ Club would yield over 30 members. As things stand, then, the 962CR is quite enticing given that few road-legal cars are faster than this bubbly-eyed creation and fewer still are rarer. So why aren’t you buying it already? Well, the answer doesn’t only tie itself to the existence of multiple Swiss bank accounts...

After Seeing This Rendering, We're Convinced The Porsche Taycan Should've Been A Supercar

After Seeing This Rendering, We’re Convinced The Porsche Taycan Should’ve Been A Supercar

This rendering has got us head over heels

Let’s face it: the Taycan is an amazing sports car, nothing short of what we expected from Porsche in the first place. And when I say amazing I say capable of breaking one’s neck during full acceleration from a standstill but also capable of planting itself on the road like it’s on rails.

Then again, what if the Taycan belonged to the supercar species?

Jay Leno Has Some Interesting Thoughts On the Porsche Carrera GT

Jay Leno Has Some Interesting Thoughts On the Porsche Carrera GT

Jay Leno takes his V-10-powered Porsche Carrera GT out for a spin

Porsche’s most common sports cars are powered by flat-six engines, but the German company has made a few exceptions from this rule. The most iconic example is the Carrera GT, a supercar produced from 2003 to 2007. While some of Porsche’s modern vehicles are powered by V-6 and V-8 engines, the Stuttgart-based brand opted to drop a V-10 into the Carrera GT. And this is one of the main reasons why Jay Leno bought one. And he just showcased it in a new episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.

You Have To Check Out This Video Review of the Porsche 993 GT1

Forget about the 918 Spyder, the 911 GT1 is the ultimate Porsche supercar!

When talking about Porsche supercars, we mostly remember the 918 Spyder, the Carrera GT, and the 959. We often forget that Porsche built an even greater supercar in the 1990s, most likely because it was extremely exclusive and it was essentially a road-legal Le Mans prototype. I’m talking about the 911 GT1, arguably the most extreme Porsche 911 ever designed. Racing enthusiast Tiff Needell just got his hands on one and put together one of the greatest driven reviews.

Trying to explain the GT’s personality needs a trip to the supercar’s roots

It’s hard to find new angles of looking at the Porsche Carrera GT. The German raucous supercar - we are being polite and not calling it a widowmaker - has been reviewed and then reviewed some more.

Jason Cammisa, however, in a video for ISSIMI looks at the origins of the Carrera GT and how they turned it into a vicious car that’s always waiting to bite.

And it’s based on the 917 Concept from 2019

Porsche redesigned its entire lineup over the last years and even introduced special models like the 935. But it’s still missing a full-fledged supercar. The 918 Spyder was discontinued in 2015 after only 918 units built and Porsche has yet to confirm a successor. But a set of leaked pattent images hint that the German firm is indeed working on one. And it looks a lot like the 917 Concept from 2019.

There were no casualties, so let this incident be a lesson learned

While we were nicely tucked in inside our homes doing our best to cope with isolation, some random dude decided it’s a good idea to take his 1 of 25 Gemballa Mirage GT out on the empty streets of New York.

Nothing wrong here, of course, as long as he remained within the confines of the law. Which he didn’t, causing him to end up crashing into multiple vehicles.

Porsche Won't Do an Electric Hypercar, But It Does Have Something Else In Mind

Porsche Won’t Do an Electric Hypercar, But It Does Have Something Else In Mind

Purists are so going to love this

Back in November 2019, a report traveled through online car-centric mediums claiming that Porsche is serious about building a hypercar that would rule supreme on the top tier position of its lineup.

Rumors talked about a car that would bridge the gap between Porsche’s road-going vehicles and its motorsport programs with know-how provided by the company’s abandoned Formula 1 engine development program. Well, you can disregard that, because Porsche’s is not doing a hypercar. At least not in the short- to medium-term future.

Let the Sound of a Porsche Carrera GT Haunt You Forever

This has got to be one of the best sounding supercars ever made

We don’t know about you, but the undersigned here loves a proper V-10 engine. Unfortunately, not many carmakers are dropping V-10s inside their sports cars/supercars these days, and that’s a shame.

So all we can do is dwell on the past and relive the days when the Porsche Carrera GT ruled supreme over the car world. And yes, that V-10 born and raised with Le Mans expertise contributes immensely to the Carrera GT’s status as an automotive legend.

This Is the Best Porsche Carrera GT Crash Course You’ll See All Year

Harry Metcalfe really has a nice way of making tons of info sound clear and logical

The Porsche Carrera GT is one of the automotive world’s icons. Back when Porsche introduced it, the supercar was met with a lot of affection by car nuts because, well, it was an engineering marvel and it was a Porsche, but at the same time, it also came after the first-generation Cayenne, which at the time, did extremely well to upset every Porschephile out there.

A select few have had a chance to drive the Porsche Carrera GT and even fewer got to own one. In the U.S., a Carrera GT sold for $448,400, as per Car and Driver. These days, you’ll need to shell out north of $1 million to get one at auction.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Just Proved Itself Against the Ferrari 812 Superfast and Porsche 911 GT3 RS: Video

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Just Proved Itself Against the Ferrari 812 Superfast and Porsche 911 GT3 RS: Video

Ford really nailed it with the new Shelby GT500

Ford did a lot of things right with the Mustang Shelby GT500. It updated the Voodoo 5.2-liter V-8 used by the Shelby GT350 with a 2.65-liter supercharger, ditched the innovative flat-plane crank design of the GT350, and went for a more traditional cross-plane crankshaft, all while considerably upping the power output.

Plus, we don’t have to tell you just how much weight the Shelby name holds in the automotive industry. Then again, so does Ferrari. Or Porsche. However, as you’re about to see, that wasn’t enough to throw off the Shelby GT500.

Wallpaper of the Day: Porsche 918

Wallpaper of the Day: Porsche 918

Why not liven up your desktop with a great wallpaper of the Porsche 918?

Today, we want to pay tribute to the Porsche 918 - a cold-hearted, track-ready slayer of the McLaren P1 and Ferrari Laferrari. Powered by a 4.6-liter V-8 and two electric motors, this Porsche supercar can hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, 124 mph in 7.2 seconds, and 186 mph in 23 seconds. Add on the Weissach package and its 77-pound weight reduction, and you’ll hit the same sprints in 2.6, 7.2, and 19.9 seconds, respectively. The exterior is all Porsche, and the design is still represented on new models to this day, but the 918 just stands on its out and is a great throwback, so we’ve labeled it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve posted our favorite below, but there’s a massive gallery at the bottom of the page for you to choose from.
