Extreme Fox Body Mustang Pulls Huge Wheelie While Drag Racing Porsche 911 Turbo

The Porsche 911 Turbo S is extremely difficult to beat, regardless of the type of dynamic shenanigan it gets involved in. This obviously includes 1,320 feet stints, but when Zuffenhausen's benchmark (Porsche calls the 911 Turbo this way) meets a heavily modified contraption that lives exclusively for the drag strip, things change.

We get a pretty good example of that in the video below, which shows us a 991 generation Turbo S going up against an extreme Fox Body Mustang. The pair of octane behemoths duked it out at the recent TX2K16 event that saw Texas becoming the US capital of drag racing.

Since we're talking about a V8-apples-to-oranges battle here, the Mustang had to give the Porsche a head start. Even so, the Fox Body did much more than just chasing the Turbo S towards the speed trap at the end of the track.

This Blue Oval beast pulled a monster wheelie in the process and we have to admit you don't see a Porsche being beaten on two wheels too often. We could easily describe this Fox Body as a build of contrasts.

That label has to do with the striking difference between the nickname of the car (friends like to call it Dragonfly) and the kind of visceral experience it can deliver at the drag strip.

Most of the credit goes to the LSX under the hood, which sounds like it's ready to tear up the asphalt at any given time. And this is the kind of monster that knows how to make excellent use of its muscle.

We're dealing with a Fox Body that can play the quarter mile game in the high 8s arena, so this is a beast that could easily outrun a 918 Spyder, for instance. Don't hesitate to hit the "play" button below to see the Blue Oval madness at work.
