Porsche 911 Carrera S VS BMW i8

Porsche 911 Carrera S VS BMW i8

The Porsche 911 is the benchmark that all other sports cars are measured by. It is no wonder then that when evo decided to test the performance of the new BMW i8 hybrid that they decided to pit it against the 911 Carrera S.

The i8 puts about 375 horsepower versus 400 for the 911, but the BMW does put out about 100 foot-pounds more of torque. Thanks to its electric motor the BMW i8 has loads of torque available from a stand still.

This video features a drag race between the i8 and the 911. Will the hybrid be able to keep up with the rear engined sports car or will the Porsche keep it’s place as king?
