Can A Porsche 911 Turbo S Outrun A BMW M5 And Tesla Model S Plaid In A Drag Race?
All three cars boasts over 1,000 horsepower
In a recent drag race organized by Carwow, three supercars were pitted against each other is a series of drag races to determine the fastest among them. The contenders were a Tesla Model S Plaid, a 992-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S with 1000 HP, and a BMW M5 Competition, also boasting 1000 HP.
The Tesla Model S Plaid, well-known for its impressive speed, features three electric motors, delivering a combined power of 1200 HP and a maximum torque of 1420 Nm. Despite its 2,200kg weight, the Model S Plaid, with its all-wheel drive and instant electric thruster power, proves to be exceptionally quick over short distances.
In contrast, the Porsche relies on a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine with aftermarket intakes, a new titanium exhaust system, and a custom ECU remap, resulting in a peak output of 1,011 hp. Weighing in at 3,637 lbs (1,650 kg), the 911 Turbo is the lightest among the trio.
The BMW M5 Competition, like the Porsche, underwent significant modifications to boost its power. Its 4.0-litre V8 features new twin turbochargers, a new intake, and an ECU tune, giving it 1,000hp and 1,100Nm of torque. With all that power sent to all four wheels via an automatic gearbox, the car weighs 1,850kg.
