Porsche 911 Turbo Literally Smokes This GT-R

Drag Race

The 911 is quite literally going like its ass is on fire.

There is pretty much no way that a drag race between a 1,500-horsepower 911 Turbo and 1,500-horsepower GT-R could be boring, but the owner of this 911 probably would have preferred a bit less excitement. The 1-mile drag race started off with a bad start from the GT-R, allowing the Porsche to cruise to an easy victory, but even before the race ended, something had clearly gone wrong with the Porsche, as it was billowing smoke.

Firefighters arrive and put out the small fire in the engine bay, and although the Porsche is still running, it’s clearly pretty fried.
