2019 Porsche 911 Carrera S Is Nearly As Fast As Lambo’s Huracan

A few months after it broke cover in Los Angeles, the brand-new Porsche 911 was put through its paces, this time with a focus on its 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) acceleration.

With the launch control engaged, the Carrera S passed the 62 mph (100 km/h) mark very fast and a few seconds later, the test concluded with a very impressive result – which we won’t spoil, but we will tell you this: it’s only about 1 second slower than the Lamborghini Huracan.

The new 911 Carrera S’ performance is even more impressive when taking into consideration that it’s less powerful than the Italian supercar. The new twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-pot pushes out 444 hp (450 PS / 331 kW), a 30 hp (30 PS / 22 kW) improvement over its predecessor, and officially goes from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds.

This is for the rear-wheel drive variant of the 911, as the all-wheel drive Carrera 4S is 0.1 seconds quicker, according to the Porsche. Fit either of the two with the optional Sport Chrono Package, however, and these times will drop by another 0.2 seconds. Top speed is 191 mph (307 km/h) for the S and 190 mph (306 km/h) for the 4S.

Now it’s time to see the times the 911 posted at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. Dating two decades back, it’s 4 km (2.5 miles) long and has 14 turns. But you’re not going to see them, as you’ll be focused on the speedometer.

    I’m no VAG fan (in more ways than one lol) but this 911 looks amazing!

  • Bo Hanan

    If the 4S does 190mph, the Turbo, Gt3 and Gt2 will be deadly.

    • Mr. EP9

      Exactly.

  • Bash

    That’s something big, for a 911 owner to be able to keep up in a way with the huracan. I love this new 911.

  • Jeremy Brainard

    I counted about 2.9 seconds 0-60. What the hell.

    • First I wanted to write you that this is km/h, but then I measured it myself and holy shit 2.9s 0-100km/h. Dafuq

  • Adi

    In an era where Mercedes’ two ton sedans are as fast as Huracan I don’t really find this that intersting.

  • Matteo Tommasi

    Given that the huracan is slow in straight line compared to all its competitors, that’s not a big achievement

      ….except for the fact that the 911 has about 150 less bhp.

      • Matteo Tommasi

        At this speed drag is more important than power. 100 hp can give you less than 10kph if you don’t reduce drag

        • tbonesteak33

          What speed? 0-100kph? 0-200kph? Drag doesn’t come into play at the magnitude you describe until about 250kph or more. At lower speeds, gross vehicle weight matters a lot more. Other factors are gearbox tuning / ratios and at what RPM the turbos spool up.

          • Matteo Tommasi

            Clearly you don’t know that drag increases at a square speed from 80 kph to the sound speed, so drag comes into play from 80 kph

          • tbonesteak33

            Clearly you don’t know what the word substantially means.

  • TheBelltower

    Man this thing is nice
