992 vs 991.2
There was a video of drag racing between the latest model of Porsche 911 Turbo S, the 992 generation, and the one of the previous generation, the late 991 model, so I watched it.
The video is releasedcarwowMr. is.
Of the two cars running this time, this is the 992 type Porsche 911 Turbo S, 8-speed PDK.
650 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque.
The weight of the car is 1,640 kg.
On the other hand, this is a 991.2 type Porsche 911 Turbo S, 7-speed PDK.
580 horsepower and 750 Nm torque.
However, the weight of the car is 1,600 kg, which is 40 kg lighter than 992.
The display is the price in the UK, but 992 is also higher in price ^ ^
This same "Turbo S" is a drag race between old and new. Looking only at the numbers, it seems that 992 is obviously faster, but what about it?
With launch control, start at 3.2.1 ...
In no time.
991.2 is left in a blink of an eye.
Whether the start was a little bad or not, I repeated the race several times (three times in the video), and even when I was convinced that "the launch was good now", 992 still made an overwhelming difference. , 991.2 will be pulled apart.
As a result, the 992 type takes 10.1 seconds for 1/4 mile (about 0-400m).
The result is that 1/4 mile (about 0-400m) of 991.2 type is 10. seconds.
I think that this 10.8 seconds is very fast, but even so, when I see these two cars running at the same time, the 992 is too fast and I wonder, "Well, is this the same model?" was.
After that, I will also race at the rolling start, but when both cars raced by leaving it to PDK, this was a surprising 991.2 type victory.
991.2 kicks down on the way and accelerates again, but 992 does not.
It is said that this is due to the difference in the final gear ratio etc. due to the difference between the 7-speed PDK (991.2) and the 8-speed PDK (992), respectively (Here).
Then, when I switched to manual mode and manually controlled the shift with the paddle, this was still an overwhelming victory for 992.
The degree of separation is not perfect.
At the end, I will try to brake both cars suddenly.
Full braking of cars that have been running at 70 mph (about 113 km) at a stretch.
Here, 991.2 says "ABS worked really well", while 992 says "Oh, there was no ABS or anything".
About this, "Porsche mechanic, what is this? Please let me know in the comments if you like", and finally a message was sent to Porsche ^ ^
The video ends here, but what surprised me next is here!
Well, the British Porsche replied to this saying "Hey, tell me".
Eh ~. Porsche GB will officially reply. There is such a thing! !! I like that ^^
Here is it ↓
The content of the reply is:
"The new Turbo S has a 10-piston brake caliper on the front (991.2 has 6 pistons), and the brake disc is also larger, so the 992 has a better braking performance of about 20%! 』\
Porsche GB, it would be nice to reply ~ ^ ^
Oh, this new and old Porsche 911 Turbo S showdown video is here (8:12). ↓
