THe 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo | Road and Track

On a SoCal runway used by General Patton to train soldiers for WWII, we line up the Turbo for the first of 50 back-to-back launches. Porsche’s PR man called this test “abusive.” We think it’s a fitting tribute to the 911’s 50th anniversary. The Turbo, however, does not do 50 launches. It does 61, because we get woozy from acceleration and lose count. Read the rest of the story at http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-reviews/2014-porsche-911-turbo-s-65-7-roa0314

  1. amazing car! my fav 911

  2. Such a great car just wish it had better exterior

  3. WOAH!!

  4. What an awesome car dam, always loved the 911 turbo since i was a kid.

  5. Now, let see GT-R??? Hahahah, japan garbage can’t do LC 5 times in 24 hours…

  6. meanwhile 1st gen GTR35 owners void their warranty as soon as they press the launch control button

  7. That’s the thing with Porsche. Their 917 Le Mans car’s steering is so stable u can keep both hands off the steering wheel even when the car is going at speeds of up to 240 mph. (I am not advising u to try this ever in your life.)

  8. Fascinated to know it can be done but I’d be horribly vexed as to why anyone would in their right mind would want to slowly degrade such a beautiful machine.

  9. Does that Porsche have anti-lag/2-Step built into it!??

  10. Porsche. You break it we buy it back

  11. Dream car Badass never disappoints

  12. This is why I want a Porsche and not a Ferrari. I’d never do this though, ’cause it’s super abusive.

  13. I have spoken to a owner of a 991 Turbo S, did a couple of launches, wasn’t that lucky as the car in the video though ūüôā

  14. over priced

  15. who is this guying doing the reviewing? he is awesome.

  16. na na na na na na… this guy is hilarious.

  17. crawl back in your holes…

  18. Priceless. Every launch, he had a smile on that face. AWESOME!

  19. 993 turbo..air cooled is a PORSCHE

  20. And the thing is, most owners will use LC at most a few times. Its just too intense to believe its not going to break, and its just crazy, borderline scary fast. Same reason nobody ever uses the brakes. Too scary.

  21. An idea: Do this in parallel with the new Tesla P100D fifty times and see who’s still standing. Would also be interesting to see if the 0-62 times changes.

  22. ahh, back when road&track tried to beat car&driver

  23. Porsche claims 2.9s 0-60mph, car does 2.6-2.8
    Nissan claims 2.8s 0-60mph, car does 3.
    Conservative figures are always better in the long run.

  24. my question is did they have a car lot of porshes behind camera‚óŹ

  25. all these power house cars and where can you use them? in the U.S. unless you own an airstrip or are able to get it on a track¬†, it’s like having an airplane that you can’t fly.

  26. Porsche – OP, owned all

  27. Bad the fuck ass. I love it.

  28. not even a manual he probably just pedal to the metal and doesnt know crapūüėā

  29. The real launch is when your going 80 and you floor it.

  30. The guy was even tired

  31. i did not see all the 50 times there . nissan gtr , give em a lesson

  32. It’s a good car, but unfortunately it will always be a douchebuggy thanks to the average Porsche driver.

  33. I WISH ALL CHILDREN ON MOTHER EARTH HAVE THE SAME FUN AS YOU THE DRIVER YOU LOOK LIKE A CHILD HAVEING WITH IS LITTLE CAR BUT I HAVE FUN LOOK AT U HAVE FUN,WE NEED 2 START WITH CHILDREN 2 START A NEW WORLD,DATS THE FILLING 2 B PUCH FROM THE BACK U CONTROLE THE MACHINE ,ITS LIKE SEATING ON A MOTORCYCLE,SERVANT OF GOD ,BY THE WAY GOOD GANJAH TIME 2.

  34. It seems cruel but, a good display of its durability

  35. That’s¬† impressive¬†¬† most¬† other¬†¬† cars would¬† problemly blow up¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Porsche is¬† just¬† Built¬†¬† right¬†¬† that’s¬† why¬†¬† Porsche is the best

  36. Perfect video for a perfect car, love it man!

  37. Leave it to the GERMANS!!! If you need a solution to a Problem, just Over Engineer it.
    NEVER Fail, always Work, and even "Abusive Treatment" is Acceptable!!! The MOST Capable, Fastest, Most Luxurious, doesn’t give a SHIT about ANYTHING Automobile EVER BUILT!!! (For the Money)
    You can have a little bit more of all of the above, you just have to spend 10 times the $$

  38. they didnt even do it 50 times. launch #45 at 3:43 then the next launch is #50. they probably skipped all the launches they didnt show.

  39. "Clean car, driven very carefully."

  40. So; why won’t they put the same engine in the better handling Cayman?

  41. REVIEWER IS UGLY MOTHAFUCKR.

  42. Oh my goodness!

  43. your driver is not a likeable person, too much Patton

  44. I’ve launched my Gtr a thousand times on PlayStation and it never failed. Beats your fifty!

  45. LOL ORGASM FACE DURING LAUNCH!! HAHAHA LOVE IT!!

  46. Still so surprised I sold my car to him last night!!! ūüėÄ haha

  47. The driver is wasted after this

  48. he overdosed on accelerations

  49. I will own one in…two years!

  50. Porsche 911 is the best car in the world in my book. And all years are nice!:-)
