Frankly I'm most impressed with Porsche's numbers over anything else. The usability of all of that power in the sub 150 mph range is so much higher than the rest, which is really where you will always be accessing it on a racetrack and on the road. 0-200mph is great but is really only good for shock and awe value than utility of the car as a whole, which is what Porsche has always been so good at maximizing.

Glad to see the P1 do so well. . . dem trap speeds

Best car currently produced IMO.

Sutcliffe: "Best day I've ever had in this job"

That's saying something.

Porsche sounds good at WOT.

Would also like to see these tests with bikes from a roll.

Cars nowadays with AWD, launch control, 4 contact patches working for you from a stop. Different benefit from a bike's single contact patch and high power/weight ratio.

am I reading this right?

so the 918 is the fastest 0-60mph in this group of 2.95s. that means the turbo s and gtr has faster 0-60 at 2.7s? interesting....

0-60 is an afterthought once these hypercars hit their stride. Kinda like Tyson Gay beating Usain Bolt off the line in the first 6 or so steps; more explosive like the GTR.... But past 150 mph, the 918/P1 will obliterate most anything
