fakekiller, 180 kph is 112 mph, so 110 mph times are too optimistic and should not be added as 180 kph times.

The allowed substitution are:

0-50 mph as 0-80 kph, as 80 kph equals:49.709 mph and 50 mph is actually more than the kph equivalent.

I am not going to delete all the 0-130, 0-180 and 0-50 kph times based on mph tests, which are already added.

But I suggest not to add them in future. Lets be more precise! There are plenty of European tests with plenty of accurate 130, 180, 50 etc times which are yet to be added!

Somewhat, But no.

Lets just say I work for a company that, Offers clients who can afford them, certain benefits, And its My job to show the clients who are interested, a "Good" time, That way they do business with us. And a lot of them are EXTREMELY paid, That's one of the reasons I get to enjoy some of these rather expensive cars. You don't se these people rolling up in Kia Rios.. But id rather not go into full detail about what I do.

My friend did 10.4 @ 132 in a stock Black Series at a dragstrip on original tires. Unfortunately, no video. :(

While I know full well that drag strips improve traction, I have a hard time believing that one. You realize to get that type of ET with that trap speed he would of had to pull a 1.5X 60 foot time, which is unheard of on a regular street tire.

I have heart that 997 Turbo has for real about 545 hp, 997 Turbo S about 580 hp. How much has 991 Turbo S ? I think about 620 hp.

If any Porsche turbo had nearly 600hp with AWD PDK launch, it would hit 200kph under 9seconds. For now, it still takes 10 seconds, so no chance. A Ferrari 458 with 570hp, with a much slower 0-100kph time (down nearly 1/2 a second) gets to 200kph under 10 seconds. The Porsche has a ton of torque but it's certainly not overachieving its power figures really.

Ofcourse im not satisfied with F12's result. F12 should have much better 1 km time. 18,8-19,2s. I heart that factory claim is less than 19s with over 290 km/h. That would be sensational. Autocar's result is absolutly decent.

I also heart that Ferrari will make some improvements in F12. It definitely needs more power. We will see. F12's performance definitely dont meet fans expectations.

Now it is pretty obvious that 991 Turbo S has for real much more than 560 hp. SLS Black Series has 630 HP. There is no way in hell that 560 hp AWD car that is heavier has the same 1km trap speed like 631 HP RWD car.

SLS Black Series is a monster.

Imo 991 Turbo S has for real about 600-630 hp.
