    This is the stock turbo Porsche 991 record in the United States until proven otherwise. We have seen quicker and faster times from the Middle East but those results are suspect. PorscheBoost member @Markblackwell managed to go 10.207 @ 134.52 in his Porsche 991 Turbo with bolt on modifications. Those modifications are as follows: Giac 2+ tune Champion intercoolers GMG Catless exhaust Bmc air filters MS109 fuel The headers, plenum, and Y-pipe are stock. He ran street tires in front with Mickey Thompson drag radials in back. The resulting 60 foot time is excellent. The GIAC Stage 2+ tune is doing a great job paired with the Champion Motorsport Intercoolers as we already saw on the dyno. We definitely prefer real world results to support dyno numbers and that is exactly what we have here. Is there more in the stock 991 Turbo / S OEM turbochargers? Maybe a bit. The car is not far away from breaking into the 9's but that will likely require meth injection or just incredibly good track conditions. This result is a realistic representation of what one can expect with bolt ons including upgraded intercoolers on their 991 Turbo or Turbo S.

    Koenigsegg seems to be taking issue with being omitted from supercar comparisons including the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1. It is not that they are being specifically omitted due to politics or something nefarious. Koenigsegg simply does not belong in the comparison. Why? Because the trio of modern supercars referred to as the 'holy trinity' is on a level of engineering beyond what Koenigsegg does. Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren actually have experience racing hybrid powertrains. They incorporated that hybrid technology into street legal supercars that point toward the future of high end automotive performance. Koenigsegg is living in the past. Their car may accelerate quicker but so what? There are Nissan GTR's that accelerate quicker than anything Koenigsegg produces. That is not the measure of a supercar. As much as performance is a factor as is the design and engineering. Their car is a dinosaur. A very fast dinosaur but it is nowhere near the level of technological accomplishment as the trio of modern hybrid supercars. Koenigsegg has not proven they are on that level. Continuing to increase the boost on a modular Ford V8 design they have modified requires nowhere near the engineering expertise as creating a ground up lightweight hybrid drivetrain designed for maximum performance and to provide the fuel efficiency and emissions compliance required in modern times. The Swedes actually understand the distinction here themselves. You may notice Hennessey's Lotus on steroids posted in the picture. Koenigsegg dismisses it as nothing more than a Lotus kit car that it is not in the same league. Well, just as the Hennessey Venom GT is not in the same engineering league as the Koenigsegg One:1 so is Koenigsegg not in the same league as the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1. Koenigsegg does not seem to understand their design is the past. The 'holy trinity' represents the future.

    The 6-speed manual transmission mated to the S55 3.0 liter twin turbocharged inline-6 in the F80 M3 and F82 M4 definitely lags behind the dual clutch transmission models in the 1/4 mile. It is very similar to how the DCT transmission and not the manual transmission holds all the records with the previous generation E9X M3 models. The 6-speed manual record stands at 11.3 @ 129. There are a handful of 10 second DCT cars though and there is no 10 second manual. What makes that remarkable is that this F80 M3 is an example outfitted with the Pure Turbos Stage 2 S55 turbocharger upgrade. The Pure Turbos Stage 2 S55 upgrade is capable of over 700 wheel horsepower. TPG Tuning claims output on this car is in the ~630 wheel horsepower range but we doubt that considering the methanol injection, custom tuning, upgraded axles, and desire to set a record with this car. There definitely is some sandbagging going on. TPG Tuning themselves has run 10's in a DCT F82 M4 upgraded with the Xona Rotor Xgreen Turbochargers. The DCT has a clear advantage namely in elapsed time due to the shift speed advantage. We should see a 10 second manual F80 M3 or F82 M4 at some point soon though. Mod list: TPG Flash Tuned - 28psi - 600-630whp TPG Street Exhaust TPG Crank Hub Kit TPG DSS Axle Upgrade Burger Tuning Intakes Pure Stage 2 Turbo's AEM Methanol Kit - Twin 500cc Injectors NT05R Drag Radials

    I'm referring to the hybrid drivetrain specifically in comparison to the supercars they think they are on par with. They have no hybrid racing program or experience. They have not demonstrated any engineering on that level. I would definitely say their approach is the past.

    I would hardly say Koenigsegg is in the past. Many of their current projects are very advanced, like the pneumatic head w/ no cam shafts, and the engine to drivetrain coupling w/ no transmission.

    I don't think Mercedes is on the same level as the Viper regarding performance. I mean, Vipers are running low 9's in the 1/4 all motor.
