How Fast Is A Race Car Compared To Its Stock Counterpart?

Comparison / Comments

Two very different sports car face off.

This may seem like an unfair comparison, but it's something that enthusiasts wonder all the time. We love watching race cars sprint around a track, but what would it be like if a stock sports car went up against a race-spec version on the same track? Auto Express got a hold of a Toyota GT 86 (Scion FR-S) and put it up against Fensport's GT86R. While the stock GT 86 is a lot of fun to drive, it's anemic engine still hasn't been fitted with a turbocharger, which the GT86R does have for a whopping total of 500 hp.

We all know that the GT86R will whip the stock sports car around the track, but seeing the final result makes us wish for a hardcore model.
