    • 10 second 1/4 mile no problem in 89 degree weather for a stock 991 Turbo - 10.8 @ 124

      It is difficult to explain the 991 Turbo 1/4 mile time variance but as more owners get out to the strip we continue to get more data to work with. MotorTrend got a 10.9 @ 123 out of the 991 Turbo S so it makes you wonder how a standard 991 Turbo outpaces it in Florida summer heat. Well, the launch may have something to do with it as this 991 Turbo manages an incredible 1.5X 60 foot time on street tires.

      That is a hell of a launch. Not mention the 89 degree Orlando weather contributed to a very high density altitude of 2227 feet. In the winter the car should pick up a few miles per hour and likely a few tenths as well although it is hard to imagine a better launch.

      Definitely impressive 1/4 mile performance.

        Neck-snapping launch. Really wondering about the Turbo S times...

        6.9-sec to 100-mph!

        But almost 4-more sec to get to 125-mph

        This is a story about torque and traction, not so much about HP

        It is definitely about the torque and traction off the line. The 991 Turbo is a great drag car out of the box.

        That's a pretty nice trap speed increase you're seeing there. 5 miles per hour is big...
