1,200 HP Porsche 911 Battles a BMW S1000RR and a Suzuki GSX-R in Extreme Race

Each and every time we see a Porsche 911 being used for drag races, we’re both thrilled and amused. The latter part comes thanks to the fact that Neunelfers are famous for their handling balance, a unique treat that becomes completely useless on such occasions.

Well, after watching the race in the video below, nobody’s laughing. That’s because this is as serious as Porsche drag racing gets. We’re talking about a heavily tuned 996-generation 911 Turbo that goes up against a pair of superbikes, namely a BMW S1000RR and a Suzuki GSX-R.

You might be tempted to say that a car can’t simply keep up with such a pair of bikes, especially since the two are gifted with tunes themselves. Nonetheless, the flat six at the back of this Porsche has been dialled all the way up to 1,200 hp.

As for the motorcycles, we’ll start with the S1000RR, which features an Akrapovic Exhaust and an ECU remap. In factory stock form, this Beamer delivers 193 hp, so we can only imagine how it feels after the tuning work.

As for the GSX-R, this also has a custom exhaust, as well as running on race gas for this battle.

The three machines get together in the typical setup - a highway that’s pretty much traffic-free at night. We won’t spoil the action by telling you what’s going on, but we can mention this is a piece of rolling action that sees the tree going from 65 to 180 mph (105-290 km/h).
