$3-Million Street Race – Porsche vs Ferrari

February 23rd, 2017

Hello race fans and drag racing aficionados in particular. Meet Leo from Performance HQ. Leo has a problem of which any car enthusiast would be envious. He owns these two amazing exotic automobiles and he doesn’t know which one is fastest. Let’s take a look as he tries to find out.

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla?
