Time-testing the new Porsche 911 Turbo S : Can it beat Porsche's claimed times?

Just how fast is the new Porsche 911 Turbo S? Watch the video!

Quite simply, this is one of the fastest cars ever made. For the new 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S, the company beefed up the already potent 3.8-litre flat 6 with larger turbochargers and a host of other upgrades to now produce over 650hp and 800Nm of torque.

Porsche claim the new generation of the famous nameplate, or rather the car attached to it, can achieve some head-spinning acceleration times. 0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds and 0-200km/h in 8.9 seconds...but they didn't mention the quarter-mile.

And so we rented a runway outside of Cape Town to safely (and legally) put these claims to the test. Join Ciro De Siena as he avoids whiplash to bring you this important piece of consumer journalism.
