    • This is the world's fastest Porsche 996 / Turbo running the quarter mile in 10.146 @ 162.53

      162 miles per hour through the quarter mile is smoking fast. PorscheBoost thought this achievement deserved a bit more recognition than it has been getting. You may recognize this record setting red 996 Turbo from a previous article where its beautiful exposed turbocharger setup was on display. Additionally from another article showing the jaw dropping 1288 rear wheel horsepower Dynojet graph.


      1288 to the wheels is obviously a ton of power and it shows in the 162.53 trap speed. That is enough speed to go well into the 8's but as this is a manual 996 Turbo that has been converted to rear wheel drive (just try preserving the all wheel drive 996 drivetrain with that much torque) it clearly is not easy to launch. That is why it appears babied out of the hole in order to hook up and go.

      The 911 Turbo belongs to tim941nyc and it deserves quite a bit of recognition to say the elast. Compare this result to the world's fastest 996 GT2 by USP Motorsports which runs 9.45 @ 153 in the 1/4. This 996 is simply on a whole different level.

        Very hard cars to launch even with that 2 step control and this car is geared towards 1/2 - 1 mile runs and max speed type stuff he tells me

        Folgrz knows more about the set up, but i think there will be new progress soon

        Pretty awesome. Thought it was a Supra at first with the disparity in ET and MPH ;-) I kid, I kid.
