Ferrari 328 GTS Vs. 996-Gen Porsche 911 Carrera 4S on Scottish Drag Strip

Drag Race

Place your bets.

Auto Express is in the midst of running a drag racing series that randomly pairs supercars, sports cars, and performance sedans to race each other down a 1,800-meter stretch of Scottish tarmac. The latest matchup is between an all-wheel-drive Porsche 911 996-gen Carrera 4S, powered by a 320-hp 3.6-liter flat-six, and a Ferrari 328 GTS, packing a 3.2-liter V8 with 270 hp on tap. As you may suspect, the German sports car comes out on top, crossing the line a good second-and-a-half in front of the Italian exotic.

The Porsche and Ferrari feature at the bottom end of the list of competitors that have run down the Edniburgh runway, sitting below a Telsa Model S and Mercedes A45 AMG. At the top of the pile, unsurprisingly, is a Mercedes F1 car which you can watch drag race an SLS AMG here.
