Battle for Germany – Mercedes-Benz vs. Porsche

August 28th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to be tasked with determining which of these two high-performance German sports cars is the absolute best? A road test, a track run, and finally an all out drag race will provide the data used to arrive at which of these awesome rides is superior.

The first entry is the stunning Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. With its long front end and sleek lines, the AMG GT is truly a menacing sports coupe. Under the hood, a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 is capable of producing 510hp.

The other entry is the Porsche 911 GTS. In typical Porsche fashion, this low slung beauty is a real eye-catcher. It features a rear engine setup with all-wheel drive. Power (450hp) is manufactured using a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6.

These are two of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced vehicles in the world. They are both equipped with launch control and multiple suspension and drivetrain settings.

Drag racing through the quarter-mile and on to the half-mile proved to be an exciting proposition between these two cars. The track battle was enlightening and the test drive was a revelation. Nevertheless, only one car can win. Which one will it be?
