With Porsche delivering so many 911 specials these days, it can be easy to forget how awesome the Turbo is. However, we are now here to bring this incarnation of the Neunelfer under the spotlights, albeit using the previous incarnation of the supercar.
To be more precise, we want to bring you a drag race involving a pair of 997 units. And while the extreme advances on the performance front might make you expect that the ex-gen model is not all the spicy by 2018 standards, there's something you need to know.

You see, the rear-engined toys we have here have been taken down the aftermarket path. Interestingly, there's a serious performance gap between these 911 Turbos, which makes for one hell of a sprinting battle.

To be more precise, one of the Porscha has been touched by 9ff. As usual, the specialist has left the factory state of the super car far, far behind. To be more precise, this flat-six wielder has been pushed all the way to 900 horsepower.

As for its opponent, the boxer wielder delivers the kind of power that should allow it to leave the current 911 Turbo behind, but this still isn't enough to allow it to match the numbers of the 9ff model - the car packs 620 horses.

The German missiles got together during a half-mile event, as you'll be able to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

Note that the aspect that wins the race is the trap speed showcased at the end of the run, so you shouldn't rely on your eyes to decide who wins the race.

Fortunately, the clip that brings us the race also allows us to check out the trap speeds of the Neunelfers, so you'll easily be able to notice the gap between the Porschas we have here.
