...But could you guess the size of the shoe and which one is bigger from 30 feet away?..

The whole point is... you don't need an extemely precise ruler to compare the sizes of 2 shoes that are of size 8 and 11. It's obvious enough.

Power can play a huge part in a cars take off, But it's not the only thing that matters, Suspension is an enormous part too, And Porsche does magic with that, And they use tyre sizes way bigger then anyone else in there bhp range, A 385bhp GT4 uses the same size as a 590bhp SLS, and they use a sticky compound, Not too mention a great LC.

Porsche aren't really the hardest cars to launch, Unless you go to the Widow maker. But I think the main point he was making is the car has lying bhp results, But we all no that.

saxy, first of all you're right. You don't have to be a pro to judge the results. With my comment I only wanted to let you think about the complex procedure during a race start and that if youto only compare technical data you won't always get the truth. For example a 6'6" tall and very strong baseball player should throw the ball harder and faster as anyone else as much I know. But without technic he'll throw less hard than an average sized guy with awesome technic.
Back to the race start - it's all about traction, overall gear ratio, torque band, controlling the tire slip, keeping the revs high during the start phase etc..
Don't get me wrong, you know all about this.
But for judging the power of a car I'd rather take the time 100 kph to 200 kph. Drag coefficient is not that big factor (1 or 2 tenths in this power class), but you have to note that weight is a big factor. So I guess 2 vehicles with nearly the same weight, power, both turbocharged or n.a. should reach the same results.
Do you agree or am I wrong?

Well Luigi, does someone need to be a professional bball player to judge someone's free throw form or percentage?

The Golf R which also has 300hp, 280ft of torque and which also has AWD and it weighs pretty much exactly the same. Takes a full half second longer.

The last Stand had 265lb ft, 15 less then this new one, Not what I'd call a lot more, tires n tyranny are bother improved in more ways then one with tyranny being quicker n smoother, N tyres being much gripper n wide, But from a dig sometimes that's not always the best, Depending. N we all no how much engineering can further a cars capabilitys, Either way I bet the actual power figures of the cars tested were off the charts.

Saxy, are you an engineer? Don't forget following facts. 718 has lot more torque, hence more power at lower revs.....
The new N1 tires have lot more grip, which the 718 needs due to the more torque....accelerating out of corners etc.....

The last boxster S had PDK and 330hp, 236hp/ton and was lighter, took 4.2s.

300hp or 215hp/ton is NOT enough to get to 60 in 4s flat

Don't discount the PDK factor


User avatar

Not like thas anything new, They prolly just type'od it at the Porsche headquarters, 300bhp....400Bhp....They prolly got there 3s n 4s mixed up.......


User avatar

saxy  3y ago

4.0s to 60mph from a 2.0L.
But again it's just as fast as the 375hp boxster spyder.

Just another example of Porsche under rating their turbo engines. 300hp or 215hp/ton is NOT enough to get to 60 in 4s flat.
