Their whole drivers car series is very well done IMHO. 991S had the advantage of an, um, less gravitationally challenged driver;-) 117mph trap is a pretty big number for a naturally aspirate 911...

The GT-R has the exhaust note of a base Altima, pretty sad! And just a bit quicker then a Shelby Mustang, even more sad LOL!

Fifth place isn't bad at all considering it was giving up 100+ hp to every other car in the field (the Suburu doesn't count)

Power Kit and AWD for the 911 and it would be a pretty decent quarter mile ET. If you're into that kind of thing. : )


My test version would be "best average of 20" ... let's see which cars can put down the same quarter standing start 20 times consecutively ... maybe throw in a braking component like "less than 150ft to dead stop after every quarter mile" ... then we'll see.

the scary part of the Lambo is that they left a lot on the table, i believe on purpose. the MKII will have about 750hp by the simple addition of DFI. wow.

cant want to see the new upcoming GT3 in nex yrs contest.
