All Porsche Drag Race – 918 Spyder vs ES Motor 911 Turbo S

September 11th, 2023

Here we have a standing quarter-mile drag race between a pair of Porsches. These stunning examples of German engineering are all set to prove which is fastest in a contest of straight-line acceleration. The million-dollar hypercar remains stock but the 911 has been skillfully modified to improve performance. Shall we have a closer look?

The all-wheel drive Porsche 918 Spyder comes with a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine and a pair of electric motors (one on the front axle and another on the rear axle). They combine to produce the equivalent of 887hp and 944 lb.-ft. of torque. The stock 918 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.2-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 9.8-seconds @ 148 mph. Das mädchen (this girl) tips the scale at 3,690-pounds and has a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. She’s a beast.

Modified at ES Motor in the United Kingdom, this Porsche 911 Turbo S is an all-wheel drive coupe with a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged rear-mounted engine. The transmission is a PDK dual-clutch 8-speed automatic and it weighs in at 3,615-pounds. No factory acceleration and quarter-mile numbers here because this 911 has been extensively modified. Upgrades include the ES 750 Kit with a larger intercooler, a methanol injection kit, a full titanium exhaust, as well as ES PCU and TCU tuning. This brute can now make 888hp and 737 lb.-ft. of torque.

Time to line these two horses up and let them run.
