Epic Drag Race Shows All Generations Of The Porsche 911 Turbo Going Toe-To-Toe
The current Porsche 911 Turbo S is one of the fastest-accelerating production cars in existence and this latest drag racing video from CarWow shows just how much quicker it has become over the decades.
There are a total of seven generations of 911 Turbo that have been produced over the decades. The dynasty started back in 1975 with the introduction of the 930. It was built until 1989 when it was replaced by the 964 Turbo that only stuck around until 1993 and two years later, was superseded by the 993.
Porsche kicked off the 21st century with the launch of the 996 Turbo in 2000 and built it for four years. The 997 then followed it and was available between 2006 and 2011 before the 991-generation landed in 2013. In 2020, the current 992 Turbo and Turbo S models hit the market.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 911 Turbo has only become faster over the years so it makes sense that the newer cars beat the earlier ones, with the 992 leading the pack and the 930 coming in last.
In total, three drag races were held with the third and final race being the best. The 992 Turbo S stormed home to victory, completing the quarter-mile in 10.2 seconds. That placed it ahead of the 991 at 10.7 seconds, the 997 at 10.9 seconds, the 996 at 12.3 seconds, the 993 at 12.8 seconds, the 964 at 14 seconds, and last but not least, the 930 at 17.3 seconds after suffering some clutch issues. However, the 930 did record a better time of 14.9 seconds in a separate race.
