BMW i8 Versus Porsche 911 Carrera S – Drag Race Video

SEP 19 2014 BY MIKE ANTHONY 8

Get ready!

“There’s no doubt it would give an entry level 911 an awful lot to think about.”

The all-new BMW i8 and the Porsche 911 Carrera S go head to head. However, there is more than just a drag race here in this video.

In the video above, you will see multiple specs mentioned, a how-to on activating launch control, as well as brief compare/contrast of both vehicles.

As mentioned, both vehicles are somewhat similar, yet wildly different.

The i8 has ~20 miles (NEDC) of range on pure electric, while the 911 Carrera S has a higher top speed and stronger acceleration.

Check out the video to see how the i8 and 911 stack up.  We’re certain you’ll enjoy the action shots and commentary throughout.

I want to see an i8 vs. Tesla Model S.

+1.

Funny how they use the S.
What’s wrong with the Regular 911? It would LOSE.

Because these two have a similar window sticker ($).

While I’ve seen the i8 clocked to 3.8s 0-60 two places, this time is not even close. Why so different?

I think it’s because the BMW is too busy generating fake engine noise to keep up with the Porsche.

Are those official racing moccasins?

For our next test ladies and gentlemen, we will turn off the petrol engines and repeat the race to see who gets to the finish line first.

Place your bets now… 🙂
