    • Tuned Porsche 991.1 Turbo S taking down a McLaren 720S on the highway

      If you can beat a 720S from a roll, you have a fast car. The 720S is the barometer of what is considered fast today and a hell of a barometer it is. This 991.1 Turbo is equipped with a ByDesign Stage IV package which depending on fuel can top 700 all wheel horsepower on a Mustang dyno.


      As for performance on the strip, they can trap in the 144 mile per hour range.

      To pull the 720S after it takes the hit like this one assumes this 991.1 Turbo is on race gas.

        Certainly impressive. Would like to get video from the McLaren POV.

        Since this is tagged @dragtimes 720s, It will probably end up on this you tube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWe...vdzXwnCDxVyNEg

        ugh i hate to question things but a turbo S can yank a 720s like that on stock turbos?? Especially that particular 72os that races all types of different cars modded and stock. Only like a 1200+whp gtr beat him like that, Just a week ago he destroyed a fbo e85 gtr that i would think can match a tuned turbo 's

        It is a valid question. I don't know.

        It has upgraded hybrids, not stocks.

        ok that makes a little more sense, but at low 700ish whp thats about the same as the 720S, i would think you need about 900 to yank it that hard

        Low 700ish on a Mustang though. It has an advantage of almost 100 whp I'd say.

        I'm with you though that it pulling like that certainly points to higher than 144 trap speeds we have seen from the setup.
