The Porsche 911 Turbo S is the kind of understated machine that can easily duke it out with supercars that look considerably more menacing, such as the Lamborghini Huracan.
The battle you can find at the bottom of the page shows a Turbo S duking it out with the V10 Sant'Agata Bolognese and yet we can't shake off the thought that the brawl is less than fair.

The Sant'Agata Bolognese machine we're dealing with is the "standard" 602 hp (610 PS) all-wheel-drive model, while the Porsche could use two upgrades - this is a 991 model, not the 2017 991.2 facelift, while the Cabriolet tag doesn't exactly help with the sprinting battle.

So, let's get to the part where we talk numbers - in terms of the power-to-weight ratio, the Raging Bull comes with 2.7 kilograms per PS, while the Turbo S Cabriolet burdens each of its horses with 3.1 kilograms.

The tables turn when it comes to the torque, though, since the forced induction of the Zuffenhausen animal sees the Neunelfer packing 413 lb-ft (750 Nm), while the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter heart of the Huracan brings 553 lb-ft (560 Nm) to the game.

Turning to figures that come from the real world, the Huracan can complete the quarter mile run in as little as 10.4 seconds, while the open-top Turbo S needs 10.8 seconds for the job.

Nevertheless, the fight we have here is a rolling drag race, one that takes place on an airfield in Sweden. As such, the two supercars have plenty of room to stretch their mechanical legs, so you won't be left with too many questions.

Before we let the video do its job, we'll remind you the 991.2 Turbo S coupe has recently made headlines for becoming the quickest car Motor Trend has ever tested in terms of the launch control moment. From standstill to 50 mph, the Porscha dissed vehicles such as the 918 Spyder, with its performance speaking for itself.
