Drag race – Porsche 911 Turbo S v Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

The iconic 911 is a purebred sports car, but the petrol electric Panamera saloon has real-world pace to spare. Which is faster in a straight line?

The seventh-generation Porsche 911 is, in Turbo S guise, a cruise missile of a sports car. With 580bhp being sent to all four wheels and a top speed of over 200mph, there are some supercars that would have a hard time keeping up with it in a straight line.

You might think a four-door saloon has no hope of matching it for outright pace, but Porsche has something that should put up a good fight.

The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is the fastest Panamera Porsche has ever built. It may be at a 700kg weight disadvantage, but its petrol-electric powertrain produces an even more impressive 671bhp. 

Join Dan Prosser as he pits the two Porsches against each other in a half-mile drag race, to see which will cross the line first.
