Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. C7 Magnuson Corvette Z06 – Street Hits

June 4th, 2024

Tonight, the roll racing action will be from 50 to 150 mph, and it will be on the streets (of Mexico). Each competitor has studiously prepared their respective top-tier high-performance machines in order to win these specific types of races. Both racers will be accompanied by a single passenger. These passengers will undoubtedly be white-knuckling the grab handles (where available).

On the right is the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S. At a base price of more than $200K, the all-wheel drive 911 Turbo S features a twin turbocharged flat 6 engine with an aluminum block and heads. In stock trim, this Porsche could churn out 640hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. Car and Driver Magazine said that this German knockout could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.2-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 10.1-seconds @ 127 mph. That’s at a curb weight of 3,646-pounds. Far from stock, this car has been modified with catless exhaust downpipes, advanced intercoolers, a methanol injection and it’s tuned to burn MS109 fuel. In its current state, maximum output is estimated at 800+whp.

In the opposite lane is the rear-wheel drive 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This coupe came from the factory with a 650hp (650 lb.-ft. of torque) supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Since then, it has been modified with a ported Magnuson 2650 blower. It has also been upgraded with an E85 tune and bolt-ons. Detuned for this race, he’s putting 860whp to the pavement.

This should be a great race.
