• Autocar does epic McLaren MP4-12C versus 991 Turbo S drag race... then takes it down

      WTF Autocar? No offense, but your videos usually aren't all that great with reviewers going on and on about their feelings like women discussing a relationship instead of providing useful performance data and context. For once you do something cool and then take it down? Autocar the other day got to take a spin in the brand spanking new 991 Turbo S. It seems what they left out of the video was that they did a drag race with the car versus the McLaren MP4-12C. This drag race was uploaded and quickly removed.


      Instead of showing you the race video since Autocar pulled it all that exists is two gifs of what happens in the race. Yes, the 991 Turbo S pulls. How does this happen? Not too sure as the McLaren MP4-12C with the upgraded software is a low 10 second car in the 135 mile per hour range. It may be due to a dusty road and a question of traction provided by all wheel drive. Is the 991 Turbo S really this fast?

      We'll have to wait for someone with balls to do this comparison as it seems somebody at Autocar released something someone did not want to be seen just yet. You can't stop the internet though.

        Why would anyone want a 911 over a MP4-12C?

        I don't care what that Porsche can do. MP4-12C over almost any car out there. No contest.

        The chassis of the MP4-12C is so much more technologically advanced than most cars out there. I cant find much of an argument for the Porsche that doest fall into the subjective category. AWD is just about it.
